      Do some research on ESP and C-Prepared cars. :P

      STR definitely looks like a fun class. Were I in a position to replace my TDI with a new daily driver, I'd seriously look at an S52 M Roadster - specifically with an eye towards prepping it for STR....

      Considering a few D-Stock guys manage to stuff 275/35-15 A6's on ITR 15x6 rims, 285's on a 7.5 doesn't sound too bad... Apparently, it does feel like poo, but has more grip than a 225 A6.

      If a Stage 2 tune increases boost levels, it'll put you in D Street Prepared (DSP). Some local regions (Philly, for example) have a "street tire prepared" class for cars like this to run against so...

      H-Stock was a fun class in our region back then before Nick and Ryan got all serious about it... :P

      Ok. I think DSC-on works in MINI's because they can left-foot brake - they'll keep the right foot on the floor and use the left foot and the DSC to control speed/throttle. Unfortunately, the...

      My question about adjustible LCA's is how much adjustment can be done before too much strain is put on the CV joint? I've read that even sliding the LBJ to the outer-most setting in the OE LCA slots...

      I've only ever run with it off (ESP in my TDI and DSC in the MINI Cooper). Whenever I forgot to turn it off, I was slower.

      However, a couple of National caliber H-Stock MINI drivers ran with it...

      To be honest, I'm more curious as to why they're wearing out so fast. The ~284K on my car haven't all been particularly easy ones. I know lowering a Mk IV changes the tie-rod angles, but I hadn't...

      Ground Control sells one, but it's a solid mount (no rubber isolator) so it will likely add a lot of ride harshness. Whether or not that would toelrable is up to you. The Mk IV strut tower doesn't...

      My biggest problem with any of the aftermarket springs is they lower the car. H&R springs tend to lower quite a bit. They're stiffer, but not stiff enough to make up for the geometry.
