      I've changed that up since I first made the thread, so that's fair.
      I'm fine with the braking and rotation now.

      ​​​​​​Looking at different suspension options now. Really didn't want to buy more parts, but I think there's better options out there.

        I would recomend doing more autocrosses with the current setup. Dont take this the wrong way but it sounds like you are trying to compensate time with new parts. Learn to compensate for the cars issues now and after a lot more seat time you can go to a new setup.

            Yeah... more mods is rarely the answer.

                Not enough bias to the rear.

                Removed prop valve, installed Wilwood valve, with proportioning set to 0.
                Fixed.

                  Friend of mine captured some great videos of the car.





                  I installed the adjustable IE links before the event.
                  Set the front bar to full stiff, and left the rear on soft, it really helped the rear stay planted under heavy throttle and breaking, it can still rotate, but is much more planted.
                  Ran higher pressures in the tires too. 36 front, 34 rear, I'll keep playing around with this, but they did better than at 30psi.

                  Most importantly I began to get more comfortable with pushing the car, and really dropped time by being much more aggressive with my inputs.

                  Fast times were low 43s, FTD was 42.5s I was running mid 45's
