toyo proxies t1s

have had 6 sets of tires total on my car and these seem to be the best in dry traction, track hookup and overall satisfaction

i just got a new set of doral tires on my car,310 installed they are 200treadwear,let me just say night and day difference,but my alltime supspention mod,and the onlyone worth doing is the roadrace trunk strut bar,dramatic improvement over stock slightly oversteers but is easily controlable the car has litarly no lift or roll over stock this is the only suspention mod worth doing 100$cant go wrong try it,but u will need to take this to a minikie because u will need diff lowprofile nuts to put it back on dont know why they dont come with it but stock bolts will not work!!i endedup having to use two bolts per side just for saftey but this is totaly worth it!!!

why buy spring and swaybar when you have someof the best ones on the road.get the trunk brace i promise you will not be dissapointed!well the onlyone except for pollyurathane busting they add a nice smoothe touch and will help when you weave through traffic better steering respnose with bushings.

Toyo proxes4

Well i just got my toyo tires installed about 3 hours ago and they are awesome! (just drove about 60 miles on back roads and city )good grip taking off,good grip handling curvy "private"back roads at very high speed and definetly quiet in comparison to stock goodyears. i also had pirelli pzero nero and the toyos are better on the take off about the same grip on curves but they have less flex on the sidewalls so they feel better on the front end of the car .

heres my ratings

stock goodyears 3/10
pirelli pzero nero 7/10
toyo proxes4 8/10

BFGoodrich g-Force Sport

I have just recently broken these tires in. This is the third set of tires and the first high performance summer tire on this car. They have outstanding grip. I have not yet been able to push them hard enough to feel loose at all. I would definitely recommend these tires, that's why I got them. Both this and the KDW2 came highly praised.

About 3 months ago i intalled some Toyo Proxes TPT's they were sickly expensive and while they have better grip then the stockers its not a huge improvement, the wet traction is greatly improved and the noise levels are lower, as for wear they seem to be lasting longer then the stock RS-A's so the get a 7/10

Tie bar is great, it was the first rear suspension mod I made. At the time it was very very noticable especially on the on-off ramps

I also recomend the swaybar another great product.

sorry to hog up this thread, but when u got the tie bar, did it help understeer? make the back end more even with the car.???

well im buying the tie bar along with my RRM LSD. i will write a very detailed review on it, but im sure it'll be great, as all ROAD RACE products are. They always surpass my expectations somehow, so this small little bar will probly be incredible.

Tie bars are great for the money. It was the first suspension mod I did, and it definitely helped reduce a lot of the understeer.

Thumbs down RRM Lower tie bar

today i received my RRM lower tie bar and i am very dissapointed it looks nice painted nicely and all but the welds on this thing are horrible. i used to have a 2000 Escort ZX2 and i ordered a front strut bar for that thing and the welds on that thing were amazing. but i am dissapointed with the welds on this thing
