What's the reason for no strut bars? Are they disallowed in that class?
They are allowed, but they have never been found to conclusively lower times. In fact, one experiment was done where soft wood was sandwiched between the upper front bar and its mounting point. The car was run through a course a number of times and the soft wood showed no signs of ever being stressed from the chassis.jfrolang said:What's the reason for no strut bars?

Really? I actually run higher pressure in the rear, it seems to keep the back end a little looser and rotating better...iLLA said:Its interesting to see that you used 35 psi all around. I usually see people stagger their tire pressures front to rear, with the fronts higher than the rears. Did these pressures give you more of a balanced feel of tha car? Im still trying to get a feel of what PSI to run my car.
I've tried very high pressures up front (40) and in tha rear (32)...but this was when i had no idea what i was doing (i thank HT forum for puttin crazy ideas in my head). I've read endless amounts of posts of people running with hella high pressures up front and very low rears. But when i tried I felt with that setup the whole car was imbalanced.downest said:Really?

I did try this for a while, and it is great for getting lots of traction while exiting turns, however transitions and slaloms become a little too sloppy to make up for the gained time.daveb91 said:What about running no front sway arm i have heard people doing this. Any thoughts?
Yep, Azenis 615's.downest said:He's running Falken Azenis. Azenis and KDW2 are the most popular I've seen in STS.
Very nice. Let me know if you ever think of trying something different.fireant said:Yep, Azenis 615's.downest said:He's running Falken Azenis. Azenis and KDW2 are the most popular I've seen in STS.
I recently bumped up the rear bar to medium. Its harder to drive, but it looks like my times might be a little better for it.
Your very right, I stand corrected. Good looking out. :wink:Slystone said:Konig Helium Cast 15x6.5 11.5lbs
