Re71’s are pretty good at giving feedback. There’s a point in the suspension curve that hits positive camber. It’s possible that, ridehight and soft springs are contributing to snap oversteer. A bit of toe-in in the rear may help.Bridgestone RE71R's. Friends of mind that autocross, swear by these tries.
Stared doing a bunch of reading on dialing in the suspension and chassis. Appreciate the input. Would prefer mild oversteer.The Bridgestones are a good choice, have read many good things about them as an autocross tire. Some of the reviews talk about feedback before breaking loose, so chassis set up may be the crux of your rear end breaking free. Obviously, personal preference is very key here, what do you prefer mild understeer or mild oversteer? Seems that mild oversteer is desirable for autocross?
20psi all around, temps have been 60-75. No idea on surface temp. Temps are still in the 50s overnight here.What cold/tire pressure are you running? Ambient air temp? Surface temp?
The level of grip is incredible on these tires. Need to dial in my set up.Re71’s are pretty good at giving feedback. There’s a point in the suspension curve that hits positive camber.

Oh sounds like it's getting there! You running any chamber in the rear?Hey, this isn't cluttering up my thread. I'm working on suspension with everyone else here too.
Yesterday I turned 90 degrees, and punched it. To my surprise, the back end kicked out a bit. Then I remembered my new suspension changes. Need to get use to the new settings... and keep learning.
Thats a great idea. I may have to do the same because I think mine is damaged as well.The brake/clutch reservoir suffered from a bent nipple where the clutch line attached,
so I cut it off (red circle) and plugged the hole with 5 minute epoxy,
and then tapped the clutch into the rear brake supply line. (Green circle)
This is a common problem, but I am testing whether this is an acceptible solution. Opinions?

It has been ~2 weeks since the repair, seems to be working well. After emptying the brake reservoir, I cleaned it with brake cleaner, then scratched it a bit inside the hole with a round file, to give the epoxy something to bite into. I soaked a small wad of paper in epoxy, to plug the hole.Thats a great idea. I may have to do the same because I think mine is damaged as well.
