    What is your GS Setup

    I just wanted to start up a easy to read thread with info on how people setup their car for GS.

    Please try and keep the below Format. There are not that many Mods that are street legal so it should be a pretty short list.

    I just picked my 2014 up in November so with buying a set of winter wheels and tires a few months ago my budget for summer has been a bit depleted. My Current setup is as follows. Still have a couple months before the season starts here in chicago.

    Wheels: Stock
    Tires: Bridgestone RE-71R 255/35 18
    Pressures: 48-50 Front 38-40 Rear
    Sway Bar: Rear Strano medium setting
    Sway Bar End Links: Stock
    Shocks/Struts: Stock 2014
    Exhaust: resonator Delete.
    Break Pads: Stock
    Break Fluid: TBD
    Oil: TBD
    Other: Green Filter With Cap

    I autocrossed my Focus twice last year bone stock, still had the temp tags on it and i think i rolled 1,000 miles while racing lol.
    I also only race at the local club level so i don't need the hottest set-up to be competitive. I was able to get 2nd fastest PAX time of the
    day with a bone stock car with my girlfriend riding passenger the first time i ever autocrossed the car. Im excited to race it with the
    small changes i have made.

    YR/Model: 2014 ST2
    Wheels: factory snowflakes
    Tires: dunlop Z2's (non star spec) 245-45-18
    Pressures: as low as i can get away with before i start rolling the sidewalls, haven't run the new tires yet.
    Sway Bar: Steeda
    Sway Bar End Links: Steeda adjustable
    Shocks/Struts: stock
    Exhaust: Magnaflow "custom" (deleted the resonator and muffler and put in a small magnaflow in place of the resonator)
    Brake Pads: Hawk HP+
    Brake Fluid: undecided
    Oil: Penziol European blend 5w-40
    Air filter: Green Filter for the street, stock for competition
    Alignment: stock for now, may try Race2wins recipe

    Looks at the raw times for GS winner Mark Scroggs (aka Race2win) and then look at the times of all competitors in AS, BS, CS, DS, ES, FS, GS, HS to see why so many people try to set their cars up exactly like his.
