As a result of my latest modifications which you can read about here http://www.6mt.net/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1312 the G now sits lower and looks even more aggressive. Not sure what the total drop was, but I sure like it!

Here's a before and after.

Handles great! I feel like I'm on rails! [bigeyes]

I'll have more details after the autocross tomorrow.

Way to go! Your car looks very, very nice. If I get a
spercharger I would like to follow through with a kit such as yours. Nice job, keep going, don't stop!

Thanks guys! Heading to the autocross in a few hours. I'll be back with a full report! Looks like it might be a wet one!

Just got back. It was a night event which in itself was a challenge. Very hard to see since you're going with parking lights only (they say if you run with lights it screws you up worse) and the lot isn't lit incredibly well.

Anyway, I did pretty well overall. Came in 5th in my class behind 2 sets of brother's driving WRX's. What really sucks is that it took me 3 runs before I could get the settings on the suspension just right for the course. My fourth run was the best improving my time by 2 seconds. I think I was really off on my first runs because the car felt so different than what I was used to. Almost as if I should have reset my brains ECU. LOL

Overall it handled incredibly well and once I got it down on that last ride it was great. Had it way too stiff on the first 2 and still a bit too stiff on the 3rd. I'll get those WRX guys next time!

He wasn't there. Here are the official results:

Do a find on G35 or scroll down to the STE Class. The second G35 is my buddy who I let drive my car. He was awesome for a novice. Came in 7th out of 12 his first time ever.

Cougar got scared... [:D]

Looks like you're pretty close to 4th. [thumbup] Did you have to switch to a different class now that you have your mods?

No. I made sure the mods I made kept me in my current class. The rules aren't as restricting as you'd think.

Lead,

I just checked the results again and you're right there, man! Now that you got the hang of your new suspension, I think you'll be moving up the ranks pretty soon. Those WRX's all had runs that were slower times than your first few runs... some a LOT slower. Way to go, and keep representin'! [thumbup]
