Quoting Brian Devlin <bdevlin at stanford.edu>:
Tight turns, Slow. Rear Diff locked would probably be a bad idea(?) I should
note, I have a set of Yokohama A520's, that are just for the track now...and
pretty low on tread. I don't mind wrecking the tires by running the diff
locked...but I'd be concerned about the diff and drivetrain. Valid concerns?
Current setup is stock. Battery in engine compartment, Rad up front. Stock
anti-roll bars. Suspension is raised though springs 1.5". Spring rate is same
as stock springs...she's pretty soft, and body-rolls around a lot!
I honestly don't know the camber settings...but will need an alignment this
winter. So, I'm curious to know what good pavement settings would be...and
what good rally set-ups would be...I'll compare and try to both (ha!)
