tukaniSVT Daniel, 225 is what I ran 2 years ago.

225/50 R16s ... and it did rub. Not alot, but enough. Though I had some major grip. :)

Ideally, 215/45R16s would be best. And the new Hankooks finally have that number. My next Tire purchase after fixing the SVT are those.

tukaniSVT The Fiesta for instance isn't allowed to race without lowering springs. But your allowed to race the Fiesta ST.

tukaniSVT Too much grip and snap back torque ... happens when you have too stiff of suspension and super sticky tires. With out that ... it would take alot to tip the cars.

Something that all the race divisions check on all cars before allowing them on the SCCA tracks.

SvviftSVT thats what i had heard (adding the reinforcement)
when i get a little further into my build, i will pick your brain some more about them

NotReal welded them right to the actual metal bumpers. I would recommend a 1/4" brace plate to be welded in first due to those bumpers being thin metal.
