I recently raced at the Wilmington Solo National Tour in my prepped 3800SC 88 Base Coupe. I am stuck in SSM due to the engine swap, and was on 225 Hankook Z214s all around. Finished with a 57.018 as my best time, which is good for the top 25% or so.

Car has poly bushings (of course), Koni reds and 400lb QA1 springs rear, Bilstein AKs and 700lb springs up front.

Alignment specs:

Front Camber: -2.3 degrees L, -2.1 degrees R
Front Caster: 5.7 degrees L, 5.4 degrees R
Front toe: -0.25 total

Rear Camber: -1.5 degrees L, -1.5 degrees R
Rear toe: 0.10 total

Car feels really neutral in the turns, with the ability to get the car to rotate at will with a blip of the brake. Mat it again and the rear hooks. I had to set my konis to full soft, which means I may be too stiff on the rear springs, or may need more camber in the rear. I can pretty much throw the car around and it is very composed.

I took several videos, these are my best run:

Good run.

Doesn't the empty drink bottle and other assorted items flying around on the floor in front of the passenger seat distract you? We're not allowed to have anything loose in our cars during a run... for good reason! On the rare occasion that some lost item sneaks out from under the passenger seat during a run, I don't like it at all.

Yea I should have removed the stuff from the passenger floor, I didn't pay attention to the stuff flying around haha. I probably would have been yelled at by the safety steward if he saw it
