    Diff and tranny fluids replaced, still need to check the turret. Clutch hydraulics also replaced: master and slave cylinders and ss line, fresh fluid.

    Still need to do frog arms and suspension.

    There's an autox tomorrow, we'll see how she does.

    so... not entirely happy with the performance of today's event. The FCM calculator says the car should be loose, but today it was either understeering or neutral. Don't know if I should blame the behavior on cold tires and slightly damp pavement or suspension setup. I was not able to get the tires hot, runs were very short, which leads to something else: I tried to do a hard launch (dump clutch @ 5k) on my second run but could not get wheel spin. Instead, it felt like the clutch was slipping. However, the other 2 runs and on the way home the clutch felt completely fine... don't know what to make about that, and don't know if it still has the stock clutch. Both FM sway bars are on full stiff, which makes it feel fine when I push it on the on ramps or dead man's curve.

    Any ideas??

    Replaced the suspension last night, so far the car feels a bit more jumpy on the road (not as smooth\solid) BUT it feels lighter when I turn. Haven't pushed it yet, dropping it off today to get the alignment.

    Picked her up from the shop, ended up with:

    Castor: 6 left and right
    Camber: -2.3 front, -2.4 RL, -2.5 RR
    Toe: 1/32 out front, 1/32 in rear
    Ride height: supposed to be set for my weight

    She feels very light and agile, caught me off guard avoiding debris on the freeway, turned quicker than I expected.

    Installed the frog arms on Saturday, a few bolts broke which is somewhat expected but Evan helped me out, only 1 remained broken. The car doesn't shake as much on the road, you can feel the suspension doing all the work. The autox yesterday went much better, kept understeering in 1 corner but that was my fault for not helping the car rotate (gotta work on that). Really like how it drives now, and no matter how much Tim bugs me I'm not buying his monster miata.
