Well the car felt fantastic. The car was way more tail happy than it had ever been in the past. The morning event was a learning experience. Diesel was there and he can tell you how much the rear of the car wanted to step out on me. Later, when our night event started, I must have adjusted to the setup, because I was running fast with little to no drama and the car felt perfect. Honestly, during the morning runs, the car would under steer for just a moment before it would grip under no throttle, under throttle, the car would oversteer depending on how much throttle was being feed. For the "night" event after playing with the shock settings little bit, the car would no longer have that split second of "no grip" with the throttle off and would just turn in very nicely, the car would rotate and the back end was doing a little more work than usual, making the car step out just slightly to get the car turned in the right direction for what was a pretty tight course.
I have to say that I am really happy with the way the car handles right now. The street manners aren't that great, but they aren't unlivable either. Hopefully, I can find a good common ground to what I have right now.
I also have to give credit to Sam Strano. When I called him looking to buy a new sway bar, he told me to run what I already had instead.
