The rear "straightaway" was a different surface than the rest of the course, which can be seen in the first of the following pictures. I am the only one who did NOT spin going into that corner seen in the first pic. That back stretch is literallly driving on ice. There was a turn on that stretch...just enough to make you tap the brakes (and change surfaces). It was the fastest part of the track, alot of cars going 70-95 through there.

I have bad lift-throttle oversteer. I got off of it, changed surfaces, and turned back left at the same time. Hence the bad slide. I was at about 65 when I spun, hence the distance. Heres some pics. And yes, it is a standard front bumper, it was explained in my intro pics.

2.0TooSlow The event was fun as usual. We did run into a delay though, I'd prefer not to go into specifics though.

As sad as it is, I'm perfectly content with my factory suspension. Maybe a slightly larger front bar to get rid of lift-off oversteer, but nothing else. I'm happy with the car the way it is. I will get some 16" wheels and probably some Azenis for autocross though.

Lift-off oversteer kicked my ass twice (spun out). One time I slid for 200 feet or so and flew into the grass. I hit the grass so hard it scratched one of my wheels ever so slightly. I'm still picking the blades of grass out between the wheel and tire.
