The Acuity bits put you in STU, though.

will revert back to stock after test n tune if my fellow ds-ers protest (asked BRZ/FRS friends and they won't protest, so much aloha).

test n tune as a success. my18 shakedown with no issues and the had a neutral feeling. tires were great after initial scrub in and didn't get too hot.
just need seat time to get better (although top 10 pax is pretty good start). d street info below:

alignment: -1.7 camber and 0 toe sqaure, max front caster
karcepts rsb: 3rd hole both sides
suspension: oem
wheels/tires: nsx y's with 255/35 RE71Rs

scales were not available today so no weight. race 1 is next sunday, can't wait!

my18 did well. aside from me over driving, i left a lot of time out there. only lost to a seasoned DS BRZ by 0.011 so that's positive.

kust phone mount pictured below. mounted with 3M outdoor tape. auto-x approved as my phone stayed in place.

Nice work! The two CTR's this past week in my region swept the podium in PAX and we were within 0.3 seconds of each other. (1st and 2nd were 0.005 apart). Unfortunately I was the guy in second haha.

Congrats on the purchase (saw it on RRAX). I really wished we got the Blue up north.... that would be my #1 pick for color for sure.

Any experiences on how low you can run the fuel down to without being fuel starve? It'll be a while before I actually run this car but I am just trying to think of issues off the top of my head...

Also knowing my buddy's old STS Civic and S2K, both needed half tanks...

I know there has been talk about fuel starve here at anything less than a 1/2 tank. I havent personally experienced this and i've ran my car on low fuel (less than a quarter) before on a solo 2 course. IMHO I just run over a 1/2 tank just to be safe since I personally dont think the extra weight hurts as much as a phantom fuel cut during a run

Ok I guess I have to be a lot more conservative.....in the GTI we've ran a whole tour day worth of running(6 runs) with 2 drivers with the car on low fuel light with no starvation issue.

my friend in big island runs half tank no issues. he said 1/4 tank was ok but bad for hard turns.
i will report back once my fuel level gets there. i filled up for test n tune and only got down to 3/4 full after race 1.
