3&4. Thanks for the input, but I already have a fairly good idea where I'm going with this car's suspension, and I have a venue in which I can run rough / approximate simulations for various setups.
In addition, Grattan is resurfacing their track which means when I take it there, I would like to take advantage of that fact - they also have a tricky downhil twist similar to that at Laguna Seca (but thankfully nowhere near as gnarly) that I'd like to be prepared for, hence my dilemma of spring rates since this car is also a DD.
You talking about the corner seen at 6:05 where I spin the car around? Been to Grattan a couple times. Stock SVTF suspension will far out handle most people (including me)

SVT03 has it with an Orp.
Word has a Magna flow with HFC I believe. So you could come and hear theirs one day before you decide.

I had the Trubenz 2.5" stainless cat-back w/ no resonator on my SVT. I personally think it sounded incredible but then again I still had the stock Cat on.

Once again because I like whoring this video out.

Hi, hahahaha.

Edit: Be Right Back Bowflexin.

Edit: Darn, the image for a t-shirt design PRIME on florida focuses forum doesn't exist anymore. It was hilarious. It had the mullet man in a race car bed wearing a shirt that said BRB bow flexin and eating a slice of pizza!!!

Nah, that doesnt look like the corner - that one would be a non-issue for me in a FF. In fact, that whole course looked pretty straight-forward in terms of technical cornering, but then I'm sure there are surface features not properly relayed by the vid.

Here's the corner I'm talking about:

I hate people



Pulled in right after I parked and re bitch smiled at me. Had she actually gotten out of the car while I was still near it I'd have told her she parked like a douchette
