Went by my friends shop to make some changes to the alignment today. Added a little more negative camber up front and took some out of the rear. Ordered a set of 225/40/18 BFGoodrich G-Force Sport Comp2's to throw on the summer wheels sometime next week. Should be a fun setup for the warmer months. I wasnt planning on buying them until march but we've been having lots of 75 degree days this winter and I dont like driving around on the mushy winters when its this unseasonably warm.

Wrapped a few things up this weekend. I've had this tanabe rear under brace sitting in my house for about 6 months. I was scrolling through eBay auctions and this one didn't have any bids on it. I bid a whopping $0.01 on it with 5 minutes left and won it. Paid the shipping and they actually sent it! Was fully expecting an email saying reserve wasn't met or something. Went ahead and threw it on yesterday when we were putting the summers back on.



The summer wheels are 18x8.5 + 38 enkeis off of an evo x. Last year I ran them at stock height with a 245/40/18 which rubbed like crap even without being dropped. I picked up a set of 225/40/18 bfgoodrich gforce sport comp2's to gain some space. Still ended up needing to do some more work on the front but with -2.5 degrees of camber I'm not rubbing at all. Went and drove some fun backroads to test out the setup. Feeling really good about it. Has a ton of grip in the twisties.
