    Current setup on vehicle
    - stock weight, stock aero, stock brakes
    - tune, intake/intercooler/exhaust
    - lowering springs, oem Shock
    - 18x9, 255/35r18 firehawk indy 500 on order (only thing that will get here in time).

    Had to sign up for ASP due to mods. Donít care much about class as Iím not going for points or wtv Iím going for fun and against mysekf
    Get there early, walk the course with an experienced person. (Just like rally, gotta memorize it). Ride with someone first if possible.

    Those tires wonít set any records but shouldnít matter to much. (Although, your extra power and cheap tires isnít ideal)

    Run in track mode , hold the ESC for 5 second to turn off everything.

    Just have fun.

    anyone else getting thuds/clunks on launches and 1->2 shift?

    its probably the rear motor mount .. but don't think replacing it is street class legal.

    Yeah I was getting it bad this weekend on launches and hard braking points. Haven't heard it on the second gear shift in a long time though. It is something I plan on looking into and keeping an eye out for any damage it might be causing. It sure isn't going to get any better that's for sure.

    I was still on the stock michelin tires this weekend too.

    Every time, at least when I was using launch control. On the bright side, I don't recall it ever sounding "worse" after 100+ runs last season. However if the motor mount was slowly sh1tting the bed, I probably wouldn't notice the difference.

    Edit- All on RE71s, Whiteline FSB at stiffest setting.

    Well at least that's encouraging.

    Yep, that would be me. I also won S4 at the Crows Landing ProSolo. I guess I don't have enough posts here to insert links, I have videos posted at youtube dot com slash ryanotis.

    Did my first autox event this weekend - Stock 2017 in D-street *novice.

    Won novice (PAX adjusted) by a wide margin with raw times better than a c7z06 & lexus RCF

    Car is stock w/ filter and MPSS.

    Tires are going to completely change the game.

    changing the motor is not street legal. I always get a clunk on a hard shift from 1st to second. I'm pretty sure its the whiteline endlinks to be honest though
