HFF Challenge @Buttonwillow Raceway Park

This time I went out with second hand street tires and brake pads. I managed a 2:07:3 which was good for first place in street class. The car is capable of getting a better lap time but I am still having issues with excessive body roll even after I bumped up the spring rates +2k (it is at 18k front 14k rear now).
I have attached bloopers at the very end!
Enjoy!!

Re: HFF Challenge @Buttonwillow Raceway Park

congrats johnson!

for body roll reduction, thicker sway bars (but i think you have the progress tl bar), weight reduction, and obviously make sure your rubber joints arent worn out

Re: HFF Challenge @Buttonwillow Raceway Park

hahaha thanks for your comments.

Sorry for the late reply I didnt get notified through email.

I currently have no sway bar in the front and a tl-s sway bar in the rear, full interior minus the sunroof and spare, and the rubber bushings were replaced not too long ago. Btw my spring rates were 18k front and 14k rear lol
