FSP Zetec Build! Advice Welcome!
Since I did an amazing job, in my opinion, in my first year of autoxing. I have decided to move to FSP from ST. I know it is a big jump in classes but i think I can pull it off.
Anyway, my car is a 2000 Zetec ATX. Car is my DD and will be until I find another car to replace it in FSP or find a DD.
Here is the list of modifications I have already put onto the car or need to install.
-D2 Coilover Suspension (needs installed)
-Upper Stress Bar
-Lower FSWerks Stress Bar (needs installed)
-Custom Rear Tower Stress Bar (in the works)
-Eibach 25mm Rear Sway Bar
-Focus Central 4-1 Header/Flex 2.5''
-Focus Central 65mm Throttle Body
-Focus Central 3 Piece Pulley Kit (needs installed)
-OBX Racing 2.25'' Exhaust
-Custom Intake (in the works)
-Massive MSX 90 Spark Cables
-Brake Labs Cross Drilled and Slotted Rotors
Wheels and Tires
-MB Motoring Five X 15x6.5 42ET
A couple of ideas that I have...
-maybe switch to SVT header w/orp
-port intake manifold
-better brake pads
-Massive adjustable Toe and Camber arms
As for tires, what do you guys/gals suggest?
Any and all advice is welcome! [race]
well if you're running FSP, then hoosier A6 is what you'll want. (if you want the best)
i think your only downfall is the ATX, everything else should be fine.
your ATX will start holding you back
Thanks for the info guys. I was looking at the A6's. Not too scared to drop almost $1k on tires.
Would 205/50/15 be the best tire size for the wheels I'll be using?
that's the size i would use on em.
honestly, race tires are what you need to be competitive in any SP class.
yep if your not going into race tires there really is not need to jump class's
I plan on going race tires. These is no dought about that. If I can't get the A6s, I'll most likely go with the Yokohama ADVAN A048s or Hankook Ventus Z214s.
another one to look at is the Kumho Ecsta V710. i know people who run these instead of hossiers to save some money.
^^that's what i want to run. especially for my first set of race tires. i don't want to go out and flat spot some A6s lol.
if you go with the kumhos get the round sidewalls.
Your next mod has to be camber plates, this made a huge difference with my car, back when I was in ST, and they are now on my FSP car. I also highly recommend V710s, I got around 20 events on a set (1.5 years worth of events).
Check the rules on the rear control arms, I believe you're allowed to make one change to adjust camber.
