I feel let down. I really thought this car was going to be better than it was. Now I've seen it first hand... the car just won't rotate. Well, it will rotate, if you're willing to trade a ton of speed in the process. I was running in the advanced group at a DE event in Talladega, Al. I was just noticing how big of an issue it was when my instructor mentioned something about the rear sway bar. Later on we talked about it a little more and he was under the impression that the car was forcing me to give far more input than would typically be necessary. I actually started to get discouraged for a while because I thought that perhaps it was my driving. I was driving consistently, hitting the apexes, driving out as well as the car could... but it just wouldn't go. My instructor commented a few times that I was driving great, it's just that the car's limits are so low that the suspension was holding me back. Told me if I had one of the STi's out on the track there'd be no stopping me, so at least I'm not too rusty. The last time I was out in my old WRX the only car to ever run up on me at that track was an NSX. I was the slowest guy in my group all day long today. Now, granted... the crappy Kumho 711's really didn't help matters. But even with stickier rubber I'd hit that road block with the suspension, even if I was going a weee bit faster. But, my car is almost dead stock. The Carbotech Bobcats held up pretty well, although early in the day when the tires were still pretty fresh I was getting some pad fade. Later in the day when the tires had just about all they could take and the ATE Superblue fluid needed to be refreshed the pads ceased to be the weak link. So I've come to the conclusion, to wake this car up so that it becomes what it should be... and a whole lot more fun to drive, I need the following... 0 degree toe alignment for rear tires Bushing kit Coil-overs Bigger brakes That will clear up the major issues. Later on down the line I'm going to want a turbo.
