If you want to max out the bars you run them in full soft front and full hard rear. That does not mean you'll always want to run them that way. It may be great for the road course in May, but not so desirable in the fall or winter when the grip of your tires drops with the the ambient temp. There are any number of reasons you would want to tune your bars to a course, to your tires, with various alignment configurations, wheels and tires, driving style...

I forgot Pete is running a wider, stickier tire than stock. It makes sense with those tires, a softer setting would be required over someone running the stock tires.

I haven't read through the entire thread but I would think that once your car is corner balanced the adjustements you want to make would be handled by increasing or decreasing the dampening.

I'd like to do the same with the 18" track wheels because there are many more tire options. Are you running the same offset front and rear? If you can then rotating would get every last once of rubber out of your tires. Do you have any pics of the grinding that is necessary. Thanks Nice setup
