I currently run in SCR and CCR regions of SCCA. Last year I ran STS (now ST), and finished 2nd for the year. This ST car had the Roush suspension kit with stock FSB and 22mm RSB.

Currently I building a car for FSP, and I plan to run Koni dampers, H&R Race springs, LCR camber plates, 22mm FSB, and 25mm adjustable RSB.

Moog is an aftermarket endlind that is way beefier looking then the stocks. I would suggest them if you ever replace yours, i Plan to...I am running the saleen/eibach suspension on my SVT which is an Eibach pro kit with rear sway bar from the kit and a stock SVT front sway bar....NIce ride still and handles a little better then stock svt....as far as scca class, I am afraid to ask when I tell them what I have under the hood.

I run on Toya RA1's - R compound tires.

Suspension - KW/variant II coilovers
FWB - factory
RSB - 28.6mm
Camber plates up front
Camber adjustable arms in rear

Looking for that magic balance of oversteer.

I see there are a few running the rear 28.6 mm bar...how is it working for you guys? - 1st time it sawed thru my lower control arms...bummer!

egbertnr - Mazda Speed 6 - nice ride...how do you find the clutch?
