Just took the SS up to the mountains last weekend. The car was a rocket and great fun through the twisties combined with the up and downhill combinations. Big difference from the last time I was up there. I recommend suspension upgrades to anyone on the fence. If you get rid of all the understeer be careful. But you will be glad you did.

Also had some fun practicing my launches. My rear tires are now looking a little worn but no wheel-hop! Amazing.

Future Plans:

The 18s will get you this EXACT result, I love my 18s.

I so want these. Cool vert going for the handling and the sun.

What size tire? Same overall height as stock?

No, that sidewall would be way to big and handle like crap. I went with 245/45 18 fronts (about 26.5" tall), 295/40 18 rears on the street (about 27" tall) and 315/40 18 drag radials for the track (About 28" tall).

My fronts look a little short so next tires will be 255/45 18.

SUX2BU, how do you like that Braille battery? I was just looking at them the other day but heard they have charging issues if the car isn't daily driven. Any issues with yours?

Didn't want to thread hijack so I answered your question in my Braille battery thread.
