    High speed cornering

    aside from tires & shocks/struts/springs or coilovers, sfc's & front & rear sway bars what would you consider the most important components to ensure are in order for when cornering at 120-150+ MPH ?

    Do NOT brake on the bend.

    Equal weight distribution from front to rear.

    Tires. Should be #1 on your list. Besides that make sure you had your coffee. be sharp and alert make sure the car has been maintained. Make sure your tires are warm before attempting it. balance is your key. 35thann is right make sure you dont upset the car mid turn or you will lose it but I'm guessing you know that.

    You're like me Enjoy !!

    A full tank of gas will help keep the rear end on the ground as well as any areo aids you can get. At those speeds the car will be really loose in any type of corner. Tires, Tires, Tires.

    if you lived in the Tampa Bay area you wouldn't be asking, I live in what is arguably the street racing capital of North America,
    (legal and illegal), there's several closed courses locally here as well (Clearwater, Desoto etc)
