On the 205 I ran 34-35.....I did the same with the 225 and the rears were perfect. The fronts showed about 7-10 degrees hotter on the outside edges @-2.0 camber

STF posts

I will be getting 195 for my next set. Hopefully one of the manufacturers makes a 185 tire but that seems unlikely. I still am wearing only the outside edge so I won't even bother with a temp gauge I know they squirm and roll very badly with my current setup. I got a great deal on these used tires I could not refuse so that's why I'm running them. $250 for a set of Potenzas with 80-90% was too good to let go. They barely seated on the rims had to over pressure them to 65psi to get them to fo

HEY ANDRES!

I plan to hit up Dixie Nationals again, I placed 1st this year but thats because you didn't show up. Also really want to go to Lincoln Nationals.. Depending on how much time at work I can save and the money situation when it gets closer.. EVERYONE is getting married in Oct 2016 UGH!

Car plans.. Need to get the front bumper garnishes and fog lights back on here sometime soon, people keep questioning me about that every time I go to Dixie.. I got exhaust leaks from crappy welding. Need that fixed.. Will be running Rival S next year also. I am trying to sell my Konig Candy rims to get my hands on some RPF1's.. Will push them a bit harder after my last event this year in Nov.

You still running your Mazda2? In STF?

I do, I went yo Nats , I knew I was not going to win with the new Hondas overdogs, but I drove like sh.. not enough seat time like 2014, and I had an ABS failure as ll.
I learned though that if we don't get close to 140 hp to the wheels is a lost case with the newcomers.
So i am geting to changes on the car, realistically I can get 135-137 to the wheels, but also need to loose some weight, I can get down to 2120, no less.

As of today I have 127hp to the wheels, but not enough torque, so I am in the process of getting a new tune with Orange Virus Tuning, maybe 6-7 more HP and new headers 4-2-1 config for torque.

And yes I will go to Dixie, although I am back in Minnesota ;)

Nice... Good info to know. I will have to throw mine on a dyno maybe sometime next year. I have a CamCom II but it isn't tuned yet. I can't find anyone near me I really trust...

This is probably going to be the last year of the yaris.. I just acquired a 240sx S14 shell and will be collecting parts for it this year.

I will be going to Dixie Championship Tour next month for SCCA Autocross. If I manage a podium position (1st, 2nd, 3rd), I will go to the National Championship at Lincoln, NE in September. If I can get a podium position there, I will continue with the Yaris in STF.

If I lose at Dixie or National, whichever comes first, I will revert the yaris back to stock and start putting my money into the S14 in SM class and just have fun with it.

I love my yaris, and it is fun, but in the back of my mind, I have always just looked at it with a sad thought... it just doesn't have that fast car look... Sits too high, headlights are too large, the wheels are too small for its body... Yes, all these things can change with some money but it will take away from the performance of the car and competitiveness.

With that said, I will still keep it but will only be my work commute car. I will still be around to give advice and poke fun at others.

I'm doing exactly the same as you. Bought a Honda eg8 and now have more money in parts than the $1300 purchase price. First event this season is tomorrow I'll see how she runs.

The Yaris never left stock so I daily it and use it as a parts car lol. It's 10/10 good at that job. With good tires the limit of grip is much higher than legal speeds limit. Definitely needs more power though
