SRI for that sound
wideband, pyrometer
custom tune using SCT PRP
cheap racing seats, custom brackets
custom dents, scratches, cracks, zipties
So the springs, HFC, SRI, and tune are the big ones... and while I can still play in STF sometimes, I can't play there when I'm running A6's ...

True, but you can a lot more fun with A6's!
Grip it and rip it.

I am loving running in STF this year! hope someone can bring one those Mazda2's to a Chicago or Milwaukee Region SCCA event because sadly I wont be able to run nationals this year, but 2013 I plan to come strong to as many tours as I can. I had a blast at the Championships in Lincoln last year in a borrowed FSP 2.3 Focus (my second time on Hoosiers and driving that car and wasnt DFL)

And to the original post question, I run B'stone RE11's in a 205/45r16 but I am planning on going with the 225/50r16 Star Specs for next year. they seem to take a split second longer to bite, but when they do, seem to bite better than the RE11's i.m.h.o.
