After a few weeks of driving, I've come to realize that though the car is a little stiffer and the suspension travel is much less...the communication and control that I've gained was unimaginable before I got my FRPP kit installed.
The suspension has been set up with only a thicker rear sway bar (SVT) at the rear - the idea was to keep the car closer to a neutral handling set up rather than oversteer or excessive understeer. I believe upgrading the front sway bar would have increased the understeer.
I attack corners with aplomb and at curves where the stock set up would have fallen into chronic understeer, the FRPP now handles those like a champ with only the slightest hint of oversteer at the edge. However, I am certain that my handling is being held back by my tires as the rears only have 2/32" of tread left and fronts ~4/32".
Tire choices have come down to Continental DWS or Continental DW. Leaning towards the DW for the performance nature -- however I am slightly worried about the possibility of snow that I may or may not encounter...thus the chance of purchasing the Continental DWS.
