    Redlines - 2008 SS TC Goblin build in Mississippi

    I watched a skunkworks wing come apart at about 80 MPH and decided I would be better off building my own as a 1 piece unit.

    Front Wing

    I am looking to do some type of front wing and I was curious if anyone else has worked on this yet?

    well I ended up at 2.5* camber which wore the paint perfectly. The link was a tire warmup lap my son took. we placed 3rd and 4th overall and had Fastest time of day but hit the last cone on the course. these settings were much better than ever before.

    Suspension settings

    I am playing with the idea that I may want to get to only 5* caster as I don't really care if the wheel returns to center on its own. I also have now have my tow plates so I can better set that up. It was suggested to try neutral or a little bit of tow out in the front. and keep the 1/8" tow in...

    we did worse with this setup. the front springs were the stock 400 lb and we had 150 lb in the rear. I will try some spring stiffeners and try to get 450 lb in the front along with taking out a little camber. maybe 2.5 and see where that gets us. On a bad note the transmission has gone out on...

    Please keep in mind my rims are 15" with the Hoosier 295 slicks so that is why my ride height is so low.

    Coilover Options

    under hard driving at an auto-x event we were able to get the front to push. for how I drive I like the rear setting but might soften the front a little. we also had an issue with locking the front brakes up under hard braking. All this being said I feel we also need to fine tune the ride...

    Coilover Options

    you could even go lower in the rear but 125 is pretty amazing. the shocks that come with this car are not even close for optimum suspension. I now get roll in the rear which lets me setup for turns and actually use the sidewalls on my tires. You want roll in the rear as long as your not breaking...
