Few pics from my last HSAX on Memorial Day. I really need to fix/replace my hood hinge, it looks like poo.

I think I need to run higher tire pressures up front, looks like I'm almost hitting the damn wheel lip on the pavement, lol.

Still more body roll than I want, so looks like the rear sway is going back in and new end links/bushings all around.

Love this shot.

And that last pic looks a little goofy, like pavement in the foreground is overlapping the tire itself, making it appear the tire is rolling over more than it really is? Idk, I have a hard time believing Star specs are rolling over that badly. What pressures are you running? You can always try the shoe polish trick on the sidewalls of the tires to see how bad they are rolling over too.

Haha, yeah stiffer springs, or I can just weld bar stock between the spring perches. :)

Nick I think the track is uneven there causing it to look like that. I was running 33.5lbs all around cold pressure which felt pretty good, but I didn't try bumping it up to compare. Next event I'm going to do a practice session at 35lbs cold and see how it feels. I should use some tire chalk to see just how much the tires are rolling over. I've heard of people running Specs at 40psi, that just seems really high to me.
