  12. The Prius is the Villain of our automotive cinematic, and it sure does play a damn good one. For every good, fantastic car, we've got one that's bland, or boring, or cheap.

    It's how the world works. ;)

  18. I realize this is a pretty old video (2 months!) but I want to clarify something.  On the S197 chassis car, a stiffer front swaybar will NOT increase understeer while autocrossing with most conventional lowering springs.  The only remote exception to that would be the H&R Race Springs, MM Track springs and the BMR Handling springs.  Why?  It's quite simple.  A MacStrut front suspension has the most awful camber curve known to man kind of any "independent" suspension (swing axle is the worst).  By increasing front roll resistance you actually keep the tires in a happier place in the camber curve and improve front end grip.  This holds true all the way up until about 450lbs/in front springs with a standard 35mm front swaybar.  

    Also, the strut tower brace on these cars does absolutely nothing for reducing alignment changes during body roll.  The rubber bushings, even poly bushings, flex so much more that the effects of an STB is negligible for increasing car stiffness.  The S197 is also a really stiff car to begin with.  Same holds true for subframe connectors on this chassis.

  19. Please correct me if I'm wrong here,  but isn't the FRPP Handling Pack the upgraded version of the Steeda Ultra-Lite Spring / Tokico D-Spec shock/strut suspension kit?  I thought I heard that somewhere a while back.

  20. I always wondered why Lincoln Tech kids were such idiots.  Looks like the reason isn't lack of attention or incomplete instructions; Lincoln Tech apparently endorses "fuck torque wrenches" and "why use a caliper when you can adjustable wrench + ruler".
