Mainly for track days, autocross, and open road racing events like Silverstate and SORC, but more so as a test mule for products and marketing. We are going to try and get more aggressive over the coming year now that we are all moved and settled in, but unfortunately building up the company comes first before play.

Looks great. I asked this in your other thread but wanted to confirm...did you go with the higher rake spring in the rear (220035)?

Yes

I am eventually getting 22's but wanted to make sure the car remained with a "rake"...always loved the "ol school" raked look

Yeah I was thinking about getting the non raked springs in the rear initially and thought the rear end looked too low. Your setup looks perfect IMO.

Actually, 18s will not necessarily put you closer to the ground. What is recommended is to use a tire that has more sidewall to maintain the same total wheel diameter as the stock wheels (with tires). Otherwise, your speedometer will not read correctly.

Only over big speed bumps and VERY steep driveways. I have to take them at an angle. Not too big of a deal.

I'm using tires that are 2" shorter, So that lowers me 1". Getting tall tires on the 18's will make it ride too soft and not handle the corners very well.

A simple tune will fix the speedo. Even if you don't want to tune, it will only be off about 4 mph at 60 mph.

That's cool. I was just pointing out that driving on a smaller diameter rim does not necessarily mean the whole wheel is smaller.
