    I purchased a set of Bilsteins this past weekend and would like to get a set of springs that can be used for autocross. Is there a set of springs other than H&R or Neuspeed that won't dramatically lower my car, yet increases the spring rate. Can the SRS Springs be used with Bilsteins sports...

    If anyone is interested in autocrossing check out this site. http://www.nationalroadrally.com/ I have raced with this group for about 3 years now and I must say it is an incredable experience. A typical weekend will have around 100 cars a day and range from honda civics up to 996 twin turbo...

  11. Wheel and Tire Forum
    I'm looking at picking up an extra set of wheels and tires for the next autocross season. I've got the field narrowed down to either Hankook Ventus RS2 Z212 or Falken Azenis Rt615. Neither of these choices is nearly as finicky or expensive as dot-r tires but I still want to make certain that I...

    My wife's got a 2000 V6 tiptronic wagon and has expressed an interest in autocrossing it after watching my rookie wheel-to-wheel season in a Spec Renault last summer. I'm looking for some advice for some cheap and easy mods, like swaybars, brakes, and a chip. Anyone racing a wagon? Do the sedan...

    How much difference do you think it will actually make when i switch from stock 195/65-15 Continental's to 225/50-15 Kuhmo Victoracer V700's? By difference I mean how much time off a 60-65 second autocross run? Let me know if you are answering from similar 1st hand experience, anecdotal...
