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.

This thread can be locked or deleted if need be.

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.
