FWIW, I have the same setup with full interior and I'm running my harness on it. The harness holes on my seat sit enough lower than my shoulders to force the belt to the correct angle off my...

Of course I'm not in the car, but to me that looks like what happens when a car that generally understeers is loaded up enough through forward weight transfer to finally have the front wheels bite,...

In addition to other feedback, I recommend a harness with "pull-up" lap belts rather than "pull-down." I got pull-down and they are really hard to tighten by yourself. Pull-down probably works better...

I can't comment on whether the numbers are accurate (although check out farnorthracing.com's dynamics calculator and see if they come out in the ballpark).

Edit: Made a conjecture here I...

Are you sure the front sway bar is reconnected at both ends? Most people disconnect it at some point during a shock install.

You will enjoy it. Laguna is a lot of fun and SpeedSF are a good group to run with.

Is that alumalite? Did you just heat it to bend it up for the front wheel spats?

Interesting approach to mounting the center section. I'm trying to see if there's a way to use rubber wellnuts to...

Generally the knuckle is the first thing to bend so it's often the first thing to try replacing.

I wouldn't turn the damper to adjust ride height, I'd disconnect the bottom mount and turn the bottom mount.

I think there's something to be said for keeping your street car looking less racy but still playing with aero under the car for fun. I had planned to do nothing but underbody but got side-tracked by...

I wonder if it is possible to drill the 4x100 pattern into the face of the existing hub? Maybe lay the two patterns out on paper or the computer and see if you can rotate the 4x100 to fit on the hub...

Lol, I love the detailed description: "Race car"

Can anyone tell what kind it is? Looks like there are a lot of different chassis that run under DSR.

Yup, like I said, for some cars, reducing roll can impact the contact patch enough to outweigh the negative impacts of the bars. We are saying the same thing in different words. :)

They shipped quickly for me, but that was a few years ago. And you're right that the small suppliers are often hit-and-miss on turn-around times. Hope your mounts arrive soon!

Assuming equal tire contact patches, spring rates and no bumpstop contact, stiffer sways will reduce grip, because they increase weight transfer and reduce suspension independence. In particular for...

Devsport mounts and any turnbuckle type rods will bend or rip out of the splitter long before there is any threat to the chassis. I made my splitter out of alumalite. More expensive and a lot harder...

You should be fine on spring clearance, but some people do rub somewhere on the inner side at full steering lock. Can't remember where the rub point is there. A 3mm spacer will fix the inner rub, but...

Heads up that to install studs on the S2000 you will need to replace the wheel bearings. They fall apart when you pull apart the hub to access the studs.

I've used 949 extended open aluminum lugs with my impact tools on ARP extended studs. They are about 5 years old. I may replace them soon as preventive maintenance but I haven't had any issues yet.

If you clean it with a brush and brake cleaner prior to retracting the caliper, it might be fine as-is.

The OZ setup is perfectly fine for a street car where you aren't chasing maximum grip, so you don't need 9"+ non-staggered wheels. Good looking and light wheels.

I've always just gone out for the first session and you can feel them get bedded in by the end of the session. I always take it a little easier on the first few laps anyway.
