    Sth setup sticky

    There is a good show is your gs setup sticky, is there a way to get one for sth?

    I’d love to see if there are any differences for example it seems like everyone in the gs thread is around 38f and 32r tire pressures

    I am the only ST in my region who isn’t running a higher rear tire pressure vs the front haha....I would love to see what everyone whose set up with coilovers etc is doing for sth!

    Its more of a feel/ tire wear thing. Ive run as low as 30 psi up front, but never that high in the rear with my current setup as the car rotates like a m**fer already (im sure youv've seen enough of my vids). I didnt like how the car felt with that low of tire pressures up front as it made the car feel super pushy. Not to mention the sidewall roll was no bueno even with the negative camber Im running.

    Have any of you few STH crowd tried a non-square tire setup with an LSD? Like 265 up front and 245 or 235 in the rear, with the rear softened slightly so it would understeer with a square tire setup. I'm thinking that would allow the rear tires to heat up sooner & to a higher temp, so the handling balance wouldn't shift as much during subsequent runs.

    Ooo, the silence is deafening! I'll take that as a "no, not tried".

    I don't think many would as the 265 variant is already pricey, but hey when has "street touring" been budget friendly? LOL

    Certainly not budget friendly to the FoST, but it sure beats what CAM competitors are spending!

    Agreed. I use to hate how CAM was limited to pretty much a 200tw tire, but seeing what it costs just to be competitive in say CAM-C....no thanks I will play the SCCAs ST limitations game and hope that my skill continues to improve while in that limitation of rules.
