as far as setup goes i guess it comes down to basically setting the car up to turn as quickly as possible where you can still control it and maintain confidence. however, the quicker you get the thing to turn and pointed in the right direction, the quicker you're back on the giggle pedal. "slow in fast out" is nonsense. it's fast in fast out.
I know in de's they preach the slow in fast out but you're 100% right, fast in, fast out, and fast anywhere between.

so what is "fast fridays?" you guys just get together at KC Trends or something?

if anyone has an RTAB tool that is going I could meet you there and return it by the end of the weekend.

Yeah its an 'event' where KC Trends extends their hours and allows cars to come park and they put on music and have food there and what not. Its probably the largest bi-weekly car get together in KS. Cars from all walks are there. Lots of nice ones though.


Speaking of RTABS, I need mine replaced and dont know where to go to get them. I know I can order OEM ones, but if theres better out there for the same price I would like to get that. My intention is to keep mine a comfortable DD that sees autocross every once in a while. So what do you recommend and where is the best place to buy them?
