I'm flattered that you say that, but I must admit there are quite a few other road racers on here and they each have their own opinions as to suspension setup.. heh.Originally posted by Lue:

I'll be going with the Tanabe Exh. based on your input (another one of my posts you responded to!) as well as the Eibach/KYB setup for now. I'm still considering HKS coilovers but seems too stiff for 95% of my use on the street. I guess I should ask them if they offer spring rate options...then I could buy the HKS with springs soft enough for the street and swap to race springs for the track.
Is there a better boost controller than the Profec B for racing applications. Mainly concerned with reliability/accuracy.
Regarding turbos, will I be underpowered running the stock twins in TT mode with 14.7 psi boost? I've checked out Reg Reimer's One Lap car and I think he is making nearly 500 RWHP .... a bit more than stock twins in tt mode.
This depends on what shape your stock springs/struts are. My old '95 BPU was awesome on stock springs -- great fun to drive. But it only had 10,000 miles at the time. If your car's suspension is in good shape, go for the swaybars. TRD front strut tower brace and Cusco rear along with SS brake lines and Motul 600 brake fluid is also a good idea.Originally posted by Jon:
<STRONG>Which do you think is a better investment if you had to choose: shocks and springs or front and rear sway bars?
Does anyone ever have a problem with scraping a SuperDragger Exhaust when the car is lowered?
Do the sway bars reduce flex in the car when the targa top is off?
Basically if your struts are worn out (leaking, bouncing, etc...) they have to be replaced. Under average driving, factory struts should last ~80,000 miles. Make it 30K, if you live w/ tons of potholes around (i.e. downtown big city .Originally posted by Jon:
<STRONG>How can you tell what kind of shape there in? I mean, there a hell of a lot better than my friends '97, but I havnt ever rated them with another '94...
