The SVT can very easily be the best car for H-stock. The Packwood tour this year and last year have been my only NT events that I've done, both of which I was able to place first. By no means am I an autox noob, with 13 years under my belt. Joe Austin is also no pushover. But both years I failed to put up the perfect run for both days, yet was still able to get the win. I just goes to show how well the car does in the class. I don't even have the optimal shock/strut setup. I was hoping to be able to compete with Jimmy Crawford at the National Championships, to see how well I can do against the best HS driver in recent history, but I heard he's racing something else, which is kinda a bummer.

Anyway, thanks for the recognition!

that is awesome to hear!
so far this season i'm doing pretty well in my HS svt, and we don't have a bad region either. it's only my second season, so it's good to hear the car has potential.
what size tire did you run?? it's hard to to fit a lot under these cars without rubbing too much.

nice driving!

I'm running 225/40 Hoosiers. They are slightly short than the stock size which helps alitte with the SVT's tall gears. Ian Basford, who was at the PW NT last year was running 245/40 Hoosiers on his SVT without rubbing as well, but I'm not too much of a fan of that size since it would be taller than stock. A good set of struts or an H&R front bar eliminates rubbing as well.

I'm pretty sure that Ian said that he ran the 225/45 Hoosiers.

That is bewildering. I can't imagine why anybody would run the 225/45/17 on an HS SVTF. Seems pretty clear to me that is is the worst choice of the three sizes. Maybe they were on sale?

Code:
Size              Price   Tread    TR Diam    Calc Diam
225/40ZR17   $257    8.9"      23.8"        24.09"
225/45ZR17   $257    8.8"      24.7"        24.97"
245/40ZR17   $266    9.3"      24.5"        24.72"
Edit: The diameters listed on TR for these Hoosiers do not match the calculated diameters for the printed size. I added a column to the above table to show the differences. This sort of thing is common with racing tires; even street-class autocross tires are often wider and shorter than their calculated sizes. For example, the calculated diameter for a standard 215/45/17 is 24.62", which coincidentally rounds to the same 24.7" that TR lists for the 225/45/17 Hoosier A6.

Oh, you'll be fine. The v710 doesn't have the same sizes available as the A6, anyway, so it is a different conversation. For the A6, you're comparing 225/40 to 225/45, so there is no width to be gained by going larger. For the v710, though, you're comparing 215/40 to 225/45, so you do gain width by going larger. Still, I would guess that the 215/40 is faster, due to gearing, but then again I have found that I was faster with 225/50 than 205/50 on my 16" wheels, so I don't really know. The only real way to find out is for you to try both.

yeah, i'm still on stock struts and stock fsb so i rub at times with my 215/45s.
i just put on some 225/45 v710's. they rub because of all the body roll, but that was expected.

i didn't even check the FSP results, that was stupid of me..

i saw Omni did pretty well in the Denver pro also.

focus domination FTW!
