RX8 + ohlins + 17x10 = Trackcross FTD

Hey all,

i am finally getting my rx8 fully sorted. i've tried a few suspension setups (bilstein, fortune auto) and a few swaybar setups (27mm front, no rear, stock F&R) and i've finally settled on a setup that rides well, handles well, and can soak up crappy tracks and hillclimb roads. I am running ohlins DFV with off-the-shelf spring rates with a progress 32mm front swaybar and the OEM rear swaybar. offset UCA bushings for maximum front camber. Also running 255/40/17 RE71R on 17x10 RPF1 wheels. Many of these parts came from goodwin. I have more details in my youtube video but bottom line is that the RX8 can still be a competitive platform and always puts a smile on your face! i look forward to hillclimbs this season with this new, more compliant setup (public road hillclimbs can get a bit bumpy...)
