I AutoX monthly and take the twisties often. Glad you guys like the lugnuts/stud conversion!
@8v Fury, I can't wait for Niello next year. I hope it doesn't rain, and I hope we don't get stuffed to the back of the ranch again neither.
Thanks fellas! I make it a point to have as much fun with it as I can.. this year I've blown a couple coolant hoses, cracked a coolant ball, cracked an upper coolant hose flange, all caused by a malfunctioning thermostat, replaced the water pump, and replaced the head gasket... the diff finally blew bolts outta' the side of the tranny a couple months ago, so a new clutch setup and tranny went in as well. Being my daily and all, can't seem to progress as much as I would have liked, being set back every now and again with pesky repairs.

So that was the best I came up with. Lol...
Currently I'm sitting at a degree-and-a-half negative. I'd like to be somewhere between -2.5° and -3.5°. But yeah, this is something I absolutely MUST DO if I still want to keep up with the S2000's and Evo's. Wanna help out?
Below is an excerpt of the results for last AutoX. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but just wanted to give you guys an idea of what can be done with the setup I have and what cars I am competing with. After the names are club affiliations and sponsorships. The first four numbered columns are lap times, with the small numbers next to them are cones taken. The fifth column is fastest lap, followed by event ranking, followed by a couple "index ranking" columns (?), then followed by event points and total points accumulated.
Really I imagine it will all depend on the class you intend to run and the rules which will limit the other supporting modifications (tire/wheel width, engine mods, weight reduction, brakes etc.)
Koni/Ground Control is a great option for the money... you can choose various spring lengths and rates. Konis can be serviced and custom valved by many people and they've been around forever, which is a testament to their quality but also to their older technology. They're twin tubes and a very good shock. However from what I've read the single adjustables have their limitations in terms of higher spring rates. This may not be an issue for you.
AST, one of the best manufacturers there is out there. They only do monotubes and they do em right. I'm not even sure you can get a shock from them lower than their 4200 series (which is awesome). They tend to pair them with Hyperco springs which have an awesome reputation. Really you can't go wrong with AST, but prepare to spend $$$.
AMR... look up AMR engineering, they're a U.S based company, it's literally just one guy. He custom builds every set of coilovers and they're a very descent price. I heard from a couple of guys campaigning EF civics around here in Atlanta that their coilovers ride and are amazing. His are single adjustable monotubes, and I believe he uses Hyperco springs as well. You'd have to spend some time talking with Andy about spring rates, valving, etc. But he'll build them and probably at the same price as Ground Controls. I spoke to him and the guy doesn't mess around, these aren't some marketing ploy coilovers trying to sell and sell. He doesn't even advertise. And you get to talk to him straight forward, which is a good thing, but could also be a negative when it comes to support. However, he did mention to me that if you ever did need a rebuild, you could actually rebuild them yourself. Which is kind of cool. I think it seems worth looking into.
Whatever you do, get camber plates, get at a good ride height so you have little to no bumpsteer (maybe get one of those bumpsteer correction kits if you're real serious) Look into geometry modifications needed to make it handle. Talk to Bryson 'Paintcanman' too, he knows how to set these cars up to handle. Also get the widest, lightest wheel, and the widest tire you can fit within the rules of the class you plan to run. Get some G60 flares to help with that
I'm hearin' ya. About the coils.. I'm going to stick with KW until they give me reason not to. That reason being wanting to go adjustable dampening... in the far future though.
Camber plates are for sure within' the near future, and so is my tierod flip! Not too much bumpsteer on the track, BUT, let's just say I absolutely love those serene mountain roads, and bumpsteer IS a huge issue there... especially at my ride height. So those two mods are not too far off.
Tubular controls is also something I really desire... need $$$$.
