  1. Auto X & Road Racing EP3
    Took part in my first autocross yesterday and I have to say I had a mess more fun than I could have imagined. Even working the track was a blast. Anyway my best posted time was a hair over 63 seconds. I was wondering if there were any techniques that work best while running these, less...
  2. Auto X & Road Racing
    Stolen from subaru forums, but its definitely applicable to us, and I found it very helpful. It is mostly related to using trail braking to keep weight on the front wheels, but it's a good read. http://www.iwsti.com/forums/driving-tips-techniques/178391-real-truth-about-understeer.html

    Hey guys i was wondering...i have pretty bad understeer with my car and im thinking is could be because the weight distribution. I have buddyclub RSD's. My car sits just a little bit lower in the rear. I have tried adjusting the dampening to 9front and 15 rear for those of you that have them. I...

    I replaced my springs again, this time with a brand-new set of Eibach Pro-Kits. Nothing else changed, but I swear the car will not rotate like it did with the H&R Sport springs. I thought it might be attributable to my snow tires, so I put my all-seasons back on. Nope. Still understeers. Is...

  6. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    My mods are in my profile. Ever since I got my alignment optimized, the car has been handling great, but I want to fight the remaining understeer. I've heard that a lot of people using the thinner EM2 bar. How much thinner is it from an RSX-S front sway bar? I think that it has no clearance...

    Alright so my car is still understeering and I'm having trouble figuring out why. I'm trying to prepare the car for an autocrossing event in 2 weeks. I have not had this car for more than 3 months, and want to be well prepared for the event. Here is my setup: -Azenis RT-615's -22mm ITR rear...
  8. Auto X & Road Racing
    back when i was using my set of bald stock tires, i can easily pull the e-brake to get a little less understeer during a sweeper. it had served me well, usually resulting in better time than runs without touching the e-brake :eek: i finally retired them and got some 2nd hand tires. they griped...

    hey guys what is the best fix for this problem. i have the pro-kit with spc camber kit and this tanabe brace. before the brace install, the car felt pretty neutral with a little bit of oversteer. now im taking turns with my front tires losing traction. tires are brand new, g-force sports on...

    I was wondering if having a ITR sway bar will improve the ride alot? will it cause it to understeer and lose the feel of the turn that we all loved or will it make taking turns even more fun? Also does anybody know how big the stock sway bars is on a 2005 si?

  12. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I went auto X ing last week and I noticed my car has a crazy amount of understeer. Right now I have skunk2 coilovers on stock shocks (probably blow) lowered about 2 inches, no camber kit, and stock sways. I am looking at the jdm sway to correct the problem but if anyone can give me some pointers...

    Over the past weekend I installed Neuspeed Race Springs on my Type S. The springs are great. It handles alot better and I've realized how much the stock tires suck. Ive got 30psi in all 4 tires and I'm getting a little bit of understeer on the car. What should I set my tire pressure to to...

  16. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hi all, I bought an 05 type S a couple weeks ago and even with the stiffer springs for this year and everything the car understeers REALLY badly. I'd like to get my car to a point where there is still just a little understeer and the car feels more balanced (I don't want the butt flying all...

    LoL, I had some nasty fun with oversteer today coming through my neighborhood. Im sure all of you with FI ahve exeperienced this a little but I dedied to max it out today. Coming through corners in second I would floor I was doing burnouts on each steep turn. So much freaking fun.
  18. Auto X & Road Racing
    Ok, getting use to the RSX now a little... Pushed it a little too hard tonight and almost lost it into a curb... :driving: Was punching it up to hit a highway underpass U banger with some speed and VTEC hit when I wasn't expecting it. Oops. I'm use to the Mustang's oversteer with traction...
