    Skidpad Results

    Well Did a Skidpad test with the car today too see what all My suspension mods will let me do. Warmed up my Nitto 555rII's and went at it. I've read the stock suspension nets anywhere between .80g and .87g My Suspension Consists of the Following

    - Eibach Pro Kit
    - BMR adjustable panhard bar
    - SLP Strut Tower Brace
    - Blisten Shock Package
    - BMR Boxed Lower Control Arms
    - BMR Front and Rear Sway bar
    - BMR Adjustable Torque Arm -3 Degree Pinion Angle
    - BMR Upper and Lower A-Arms
    - SLP Diamond Style weld in subframe connectors

    The Results were:
    Left: 1.04
    Right .97

    netting 1.005g of lateral acceleration, I'm pleased with the Results

    Good results........Which end of your car gave up first front or back. When you reached the limit did it just slide gently or was it more of a light switch all or nothing?

    Lost traction in the back and I didn't loose much, just enough to get off the circle. Still had a lot of control of the car. Really wish the temp wasn't 40 out, would love to try this again when it warms up.
