budpln i auto xed my 08 sedan lol at the time i had cai and sportlines had a blast and didnt do to bad!! i was talking to a kid in a Volkswagen coupe i forget what exactly it was but i was beating him i am a truck driver so i kinda have an advantage i have alot of good instincts because i drive everyday. i started rubbing it in a bit and he started pounding his car to keep up with me. once he started pounding his car he was beating me... but this year i want to get into it..

mac.mogul Ecsta 4x is an all season tire and that is what I want.

GodLovesUgly He can't run HS anyway, he got a new suspension. (springs)
For the same price a better tire can be had.. i don't think there is much of a difference in price for some Dunlop Star Specs or even Hankook RS3's both of which are far superior. most of the same sizes as well.

mac.mogul My goal is to upgrade to some Ecsta 4x's after these Kumho Solus are completely shredded.

The solus isn't really TOO terrible at low speed, the sidewall is pretty stiff and they respond well.... the grip just isn't there though.

Techpriest I would look into the STF class. The best mod you can get for your car (besides driver) are tires. If you don't plan to buy slicks you may find you are more competitive in STF than HS if the HS drivers in your area run slicks.

mac.mogul Forgot about this thread.

I did get a chance to autox my sedan while it was stock




I just installed FRPP springs and shocks so I'm looking for a second attempt soon to see how well this has improved the car's abilities on the stock tires.

Gettysburg150 I want to run my sedan this year to get a feel for it. I want to run the stock class so Im not putting a bunch of money into the car. I will probably suck because even though I like to pretend I am a race car driver, I am really not haha

twerpie1 I do pretty well in my wagon. I'm now in SMF since I took out the back seat. The wagon has a nice balance but I've also got springs,shocks, a custom tune by Tom, a short ram, headers, 3inch exhaust and hawk HPS pads.

mikebontoft I had fun running mine and ruining a few tires. lol

focusedaddiction you'll do just fine in a sedan, my wife.TWERPIE1 runs her wagon in st then FSP and does pretty good. A lot has to do with driver and car set up...tire pressures & what not. and LOTS of PRACTICE just have a great time, you will get faster with experience
