everyone jumped your *** but if you read back its all good advise. Get out and try an autocross or track day and check your rear suspension for lack of travel.

X2. I wanna see.

From what I can gather though, it seems like this guy is someone like the driver of the Celica GT-S I was behind on a favorite road a few days ago. He was evidently trying to show off or something and going STUPID fast around blind corners, I mean way faster then he should have been going, not stupid fast in a good way, going over the yellow line where he could have easily had a head on collision, trail braking a lot, generally doing stupid ----, so I backed way off.

I know a lot of us like having a good time on back roads, but you've got to do it responsibly, meaning say in your own goddamn lain, and use your friggen' head.

Gearhead, let's just say that the video was bad enough....to get the OP banned from CR.net.

Think about that for a second.

IF your car is a NA, IF you have the NA top hats and IF you have lowered the car ANY AT ALL...you ARE riding on the bump stops. That coupled with a lack of skill would completely explain what I saw on that video. Call Mike at ISC and spend the $82 to get the top hats BEFORE you do anything else.
