AutoX Rules
OMG people,

AutoX is so fun!!!

well my times where not that cool, but omg it was awsome. I highly recommend this. Now I need to build a plan to have a strong suspension for autoX.

Now I have a couple of questions for those who autoX, what size of sway bars will be best for my car, I did a search and I hear that the front one sway bar is not very necessary to upgrade. Please correct me if Iím wrong. Now the rear one, what do u guys think is the best one out there.

I have the Tein S Tech springs, I was planning on getting the Koni or KYB adjustable front struts, and maybe the rear ones two. But since I can only do one at the time, I think I should get the front ones 1st.

So what should I get 1st (what order)?

The rear sway bar. The H&R 24mm maybe?
The struts front
The struts rear
Rear stress bar

Iíll say that could be a good order, unless some one have good reason/opinions on why I should do it otherwise.

Thx all for the comments

you are so lucky, I have to wait till april for my first event![?|] ( second season)
your list and order look good , although if you can, try to get fr & rear shocks& struts together or ya might find your car handling really goofy! 24mm a little big for my taste, i went with 22mm and it's pretty neutral with just a little over steer. depends on your driving style too.
congrats on your first event, it's very addicting!!! my first time I had permagrin for like 3 days[:D] [:D] [:D] [driving] [race] [race] ENJOY

well i have the rear and front 21mm, so is it worth going to 22mm rear?

p.s. this is turning out to be a suspension related, sorry it was not my intention.

Yep, some of the most fun you'll have in a car. I can't wait until Feb. 5. SFR Solo 2 season starts in less than 2 weeks!!! WOOT.

Autox is great. That is, until you get onto a road course. Mmmmm....

Yea, except auto-x is pretty damn safe. I can't say the same about road racing.

if you didnt want to drop it too much, or spend too much money, do what i did. Go to the ford dealer, or i think tony d sells them, but get the svt suspernsion. it was only like 250 er so for the whole thing, and you get a rear sway bar. its a great price and a great suspension![thumb]
