Thumbs up My Tokico D Spec settings

Yesterday I took the car to the local SCCA auto cross, and had a chance to dial in the settings on my Tokico D Specs. I was able to dial in after each of the 4 runs and finally ended up with Front 3.75 turns from full firm, Rear 4.0 turns from full firm to get neutral handling with equal tire pressure front and rear..

If you have Tokico D Specs, your tires and suspension may dictate settings which are different from mine. But, these settings might make a good starting point.

I have been running 3.5 up front and 4 in the rear for a while, and it is a really good setting - not too rough, but still handles superbly!

I think you guys need to test a completely new suspension. Please send you old one to me, including the D-Specs, and I will test them to see if I get the same results you did.

Seriously though, you got rid of the push going into a corner? I hate that, but I have to wait till Tax Returns to fix it.

Have fun, and please send old suspension quickly!

Yes. It is possible to get rid of the push/understeer by adjusting the suspension.

However, I think it will be necessary for me to continue to do further "testing" on my current suspension system. So I won't be able to send it to you yet.

What are you using to adjust your front camber and what do you have it set at?

For the sake of tire wear since 99.99% of my driving is daily, on the street, to and from the office, I have stayed with minimal camber. I did need to use a camber bolt on the left side after installing the lowering springs. The best my alignment shop could do was -0.75 on the left, -1.0 on the right. I would like for both to be -1.0, but the alignment shop didn't want to fiddle with it anymore.

I've been running 3.5 front, 4 rear. I am still not quite dialed though. Next time out I'm going to soften the front a little more. The last event, I was getting some spin on the inside rear tire. I need more weight transfer to the rear coming out of slower turns. Yeah, I know, if I waited to feed the throttle it would stop the spin, but I'm not patient. lol. Are you running ESP class with those mods? I put Falkens on the stock wheels so I could stay in STX. (much better index).
