Cool! The shocks should help quite a bit considering that some autoX tracks are quite bumpy.

Back to non-staggered wheels?

Yup, staggered are out. Need all the mechanical grip I can get.

Bilstein shocks with adjustable coilover sleeves:

What most people would call a bloody mess. This is the result of doing suspension, clutch and other minor stuff at the same time.

Couple pics from autox this last sunday. Car is finally in the "fast" category. Just a few minor changes to the ride height and the balance are remaining.

Cool man. What location? looks like shiny concrete ie not a lot of grip.

Hmm..so you got an adjustable bottom perch on the same body? what rates are you running?

Thank you.

@Mpower,
The concrete at Belle Isle seems to be actually better than asphalt at the Cadillac plant location, but I could be wrong (different ambient temps when I ran).

Yes, the lower perch is adjustable and fitted on to the stock bilstein body with rubber spacers and set screws.

I am running 425 F and 340 R spring rates.
