that would be the cheapest i guess... but i was looking more for suspension/ tire options

Slicks, and lower pressure.... I suppose softer suspension in the rear, and stiffer in the front, will cause more force to the back of the car and cause a better hook up.... but anything else is whatever.

I have a funny story, happened today, and I thought the title of this thread fit the story... he he...

*Don't try this at home kids! :lol:

Ok, so today at my High School, some idiot decides to pull the fire alarm right as 6th period was begining. When the fire alarm is pulled, everyone (about 1300 students) are forced out on the football field to stand in lines, then the fire department comes, and even if it is a false alarm they check the building etc.. So anyway, about 20mins later, everything checks ok, and we all go back inside. During those 20 minutes outside I was talkin with one of my friends, and I said "man, if you ever wanted to do a burnout, this would be the time, right up there on that street, everyone in the whole school would see. Wouldn't that be funny as hell?" Anyway, everyone goes back inside, back to their 6th period classes, and about 10 minutes into the already shortened class, the fire alarm goes off AGAIN! :eek: The first thought that goes into my mind is... yea... you know what it was :D Seein as there is only 25 minutes left of school, I just go find my friend, and we goto the supe. We geddin, let her warm up, and off we go to that street that is right above the football field. We get up there, there are 100's of kids everywhere, up on that street, down on the field.... So I pull up right in view of everyone, rev to around 4500-5000k and drop that puppy! :) Hold it to the floor, sit for a few seconds then I am outta there...
Yea, some people may think it was irresponsible or stupid... and it was... that's why you don't try it at home...kids!!! ;)

(Sorry, not trying to jack the thread...)

sounds fun but you do realize that about 99% of the school now thinks you are a dumbass trying to look cool. At least thats how it was when I was in high school. I dont know maybe it is different for you.

I would do that.... It would go like this...

High school let out:

The kids in their civics (Reving and racing around showing off)

Then I would roll out of my best all highschool long parking spot,,, and everyone stopped and respected the car,,, The first day I drove it to school, no one cared... and cut me off, and parked in my spot.... so one day I boosted through the parking lot, obviously making the most noise any amount of civics put together could make. and after that.... every one got out of my way, and no one ever messed with us.

Supra and I

Got that backwards, you want a stiffer rear so it plants the tires instead of squatting, and softer in the front will allow the front to rise, therefore shifting more weight to the rear. I haven't tried it yet, but they sell spring stiffeners at Pep Boys, I'm sure a few of those in the rear will help it launch harder. Good Luck

whoops, I forgot to put my input on the actual topic...

Wide wheels/tires can help alot, new suspension setup helps too. After I put my new tires and suspension on there, it handles WAY better, and I can launch soooo much faster, its great! :bigthumb:

If you have TEMS especially with the SOGI FIRM mod, set the struts to normal, pop the hood and unplug the front tems controllers and then set the tems to firm. This way the fronts will will be soft and the rears hard.
