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.

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.

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.

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.

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