A guy in a Subaru Impreza pulled out at least 30 feet on me away from the line. I got him back though once I got cooking! > I'm quite happy with my acheivements with Skugga, my jet-black > '90 SPG.

The best thing I have done is to improve the suspension. I now run on springs which are 35 mm lower and are 17% harder on the front and 30% harder on the back. I have Koni adjustable shocks front and rear set to the softest setting. I tell you the standard shocks must be crap since the ride is better than in a standard car (OK on very rough roads it is not as good). The car rides totally flat over the bumps and has very little body roll in tight corners. I am easilly cornering 10 mph faster in the low speed corners and high speed corners (30mph goesto around 35-40 and about 60 goes to 70mph). The 50 mph corners are not that different. I will have to change the tires next and see how much difference it makes. At the moment I have Goodyear Eagle nct2's on and the sidewalls are to soft, they tend to push wide on corners very easilly. I will also turn up the shocks a notch and see if the ride is still acceptable. See you all.
