    On the same set of tires? Maybe the Hankook. Needs heat to work, but that's its asset on the track. Tires that work better at autox and heat up really quickly tend to get greasy after a while at the track.

    Ya. I'm looking to just get the ball rolling honestly. I'd rather not track/auto-x on the continentals that are on it because they are staggered. I'd like to get the other set of wheels on the ground.

    Do the nexen like heat? What about the direzza DIII?

    Autocross is for girls.

    Make it a gasser!

    That course in the background is perfect, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get lost.

    So I think I have a way to make money on the trailer collision. Nothing illegal, I just have to do all the work. That, combined with me selling my Motorcycle Tracksuit (that was worn twice) and my Dianese Full Metal Pros, I have enough money to buy the poly bushings (vomit) and get the federals.

    I'd prefer to get something that will do better overall, but these are going to be sacrificed while I am trying to learn the vehicle and what it likes. So rather than trashing a set of 1200$ tires, I'll start with something which is half the price

    Smart play. I'm thinking of buying mid-range brakes this time around instead of top shelf stuff. I can't imagine this summer that I'll be anywhere near the limit.

    Offset poly bushings for this thing are offered by only one company, and are 110$ for just the 4 lower bushings.

    I can buy the entire poly set for the car for 220 from Rock Auto.


    Delrin isn't super expensive, might just make my own.
