Default Hey I don't have my XIda 2 yet but how to rock MSM bilstein ?!?

My setup is basically 949 Big Grip Kit on a 2000 NB N/A 145 WHP and waiting for Xida second gen...

I have a track event end may on a small course, think almost auto-x where the longest straight is roughly 400m but T1 is flat out (or was).

That being said, what kind of swaybar should I rock with stock MSM bilstein and NB top hats ? Sorry I have no clue as I exclusively ran with JIC 800/500 setup.

I have FM front swaybar 5/8 in storage, 1.125" RB on the car with the reinforcement tab and block, 14mm rear MSM and I do have stock NB bars too.

Will rock 225 NT-01 on 6UL 15x9,
-3.0 deg front camber, 4 deg caster, 0 toe
-2.3 deg rear camber, 0 toe

I'm open to suggestion and your experiences !

Stock as in stock spring rates? Is one of your front bars adjustable? Just run that one and adjust to suit.

Yes stock MSM 2005 gray bilstein and red springs. Thinking about it, will run exactly the same setup since the front RB bar is adjustable (2 ways) and I'm using stock MSM rear bar, should work well.

Trim your rear bump stops. I'd go with RB front bar on full soft and 14mm rear bar to match the 215/158 lb/in spring rates.

Use this - FCM_MSDS_1_8NB.xls

PS: watched the video, looks like insane amount of fun!

I do have trimmed OE NB bump stop and will borrow from a friend (thx Ben) FCM bump stop for a month or so. Yeah outer hole for sure. Must be hard on understeer with so squishy suspension... we'll see.

The track is a ton of fun, sadly my car wasn't cooperating last time when it was turbo OTS...

No problem joyrider! The bumpstops I sent you are for the fronts! I would just make sure the shocks don't bottom out, since the bumpstops are shorter!

Have fun!
