      Dont want to flame, but. You dont want anything off that^^^ car. ( not enough front spring , too low, wheels too narrow, over weight. )

      I have never seen cars that are non stock ( read :"pro solo" SM and EP ) class so out shape.

      I'm not saying his set-up is ideal, but..., It could have non-stock pick-up points which account for the ride height. 7" is max wheel for EP without weight penalty. And, the front, while probably not stiffly enough sprung, looks more in need of a swaybar than increased spring rate. Only the times tell the true story, IMO.

      With out getting into an agrument... I'm no expert, but... You can "run" wider than a 7" wheel... since from the look of it . ( the cage/hoop. ) He's already carring the weight penalty.

      As for the front sway bar... I rather have more spring than a bar, that way you don't pick up the inside front wheel. Not-so-good with an "open pin" dif.

      For or the good of the thread.

      Here are my rabbits :

      This one, some times "push-es" a little ...

      ... and some times it does'nt. ( like when, the worn rear beam bushings get overwhelmed. )

      Here's me flogging my daily at an earlier CCR-SCCA event in Rock Hill, NC (where I met Gazorman).

      Brad stopped by for a few rounds at Statesville with my youngest son. Saw your car and the Brown Rabbit run until they shut down the course. Stayed to watch the yellow Lotus and then the little guy had enough (it was hot!).

      Yeah, my co-driver ran novice class while you were there, I ran in group2 on the redesigned course... I had the second fastest raw time on the second course, and second fastest PAX time, both on my first run The first group got 4 runs, and I didn't know we only got three until it was too late to put in a "clean" run. As before, I coned away FTD, and the Index win. Oh well. Had fun anyway.

      Before R-comps and with old springs, too low


      After R-comps


      due to me being stupid and not storing my magnetics properly they got ruined over the winter.

      current setup:
      H&R race springs
      bilstein sports
      poly bushings all around
      autotech F&R upper braces
      stock FSB
      Shine race RSB
      205/50/15 Kumho V710's on 15x7 borbets

      on the wish list:
      Ground control camber plates
      balljoint relocation to correct geometry
      lower subframe brace
      built front splitter to limits of rules
      move slicks to 15x8 BBS's and get 16x9's for street
      also want triple adjustable coilovers with higher rate springs, but thats a while off. the rest i can do before the start of next season.
