SVTF410 i got full stiff inf front, in the rear i go one turn back from full stiff. Some time i have to soften up a half turn in the rear due to the back end breaking loose a little to much. I run Azenis 615k's with H&R race springs and eibach sway bars

GodLovesUgly you will still get some compliance at full stiff, just flog it around more!
i was co-drove a mazda3 for a couple of runs today, he had customer valved koni yellows and they were outstanding, plus he was running a6's.

wrc_fan ^^ This is what I run, but with more RSB

blueovaldave Run the fronts at 1/2 and the rears at full stiff. When I run the rears are full stiff with SVT bar installed I get way better rotation than anything less. Street driving I have them set at 1/2 and 1/2

jayel579 Thank you for the tips guys. I dont think I will run them at full stiff, you still want some suspension compliance. I mean, I don't run them full stiff on my mustang when I run in. But I will definitely run the rears a stiffer then the fronts to get the car to rotate. I am still learning FWD autocross, it is a little different then when I run my mustang. I cant steer the rear wheels with my right foot, just seems to be the complete opposite of what I am accustomed to doing but I will figure it out.

Thank you again!

Autoxing_se I would say it depends on the surface of the autocross. On very smooth courses I would run full stiff on the front and 3/4 stiff on the rear. On a courses with lots of seems and bumps I would run 1/2 to 3/4 stiff on the front and 1/2 stiff on the back. Concrete is a lot better than asphalt so increased stiffness as needed.

pkolator I've got a 24mm rear bar now. When I was running Star Specs (man I loved those tires) and a 22mm rear bar, with full stiff all around, the car was very neutral, leaning towards oversteer. I was running about 2-6 lbs more pressure in the rear, depending on the course.

WUGcatsvt Im running full stiff front, half in the back although I have the 25mm sway in the rear.
Im running star specs (street tire)

pkolator Go full stiff and do fine tuning with tire pressure.

I'm running a regular ZX3 and have always had H&R races paired with them, but I think it would be very similar across all Foci models.
