Your driving is something I gotta study. Nice work and congratulations!

Ha, unfortunately I'd have to say to study my slower runs. My fast runs I'm always a bit out of shape and such

Dang, just watched these and, wow, is it exciting and fun to watch. Not to mention that exhaust note. Congrats!

I measured my camber today... -1.8 & -1.7 up front, rear is -0.7 & -1.0 (I haven't touched the rear, so that's OEM)

My dad and I made the trek to Atlantic City for South Jersey Region autocross today. Pretty good course and a lot of fun was had. I finished first in A Street and 3rd overall. Here are my videos:

Pretty good driving. Had some places it looked like it could have been a little tighter, like that supper tight 180 (kinda looked annoying).

Did you notice the camber change?

Thanks. Definitely blew the 180 on my clean run. Other places could have been a little tighter. I think I was trying to avoid over slowing (and did it anyway in some places) so I was setting up a little wider than normal to force myself to carry speed.

According to data versus the other GT350 there I gave up some time entering the slalom at the top of the cross by being too slow, and across the back through all that technical stuff I was too aggressive slowing the car down in one place where I could have sort of "floated" through.

I also did some mods to the front sway bar... So it's tough to tell... AM runs were so slippery feeling that it was very hard to tell. I think with the sum of the bar & camber changes the car has some slow speed push (which is both good and bad...), high speed is pretty balanced (tending slightly towards loose) and there's a bit less roll in transitional stuff.

Before the SJR autocross event I modded the front swaybar and swapped endlinks (as an FYI they use the same end link as an FR-S/BRZ )

That swaybar mod is a great idea! I'm always taken back when calculating torsional stiffness to see how much you can gain/lose just by moving your endlink mounting points 1".

For an essentially free mod, it's wild how much difference it can make. This is probably an extreme example, but I'm close to 40% stiffer bar rate with my back of the napkin math. The "sport" shock setting now feels like the "track" setting in roll through transitional stuff. Pretty wild.

The balance of the car seems to be nearly perfect for autocross now, for my tastes. I detest understeer...

I'm debating buying the BMR swaybar anyway to give me the option of a stiffer setting, my bar should be somewhere close to the medium setting (my free mod should a bit below) while the soft setting is a little stiffer than my stock unmodified setting. The best advantage to the BMR bar is that it's a bit straighter with the holes on a proper arc and I won't need to play with end link lengths if I change just one side of the bar at a time.

mods = money... so not much is gonna happen now

I like street class, it stops me from spending silly money doing CAM prep. I'd love camber plates and some subframe bushing lockouts and lots of other little things here and there, haha. MGW shifter would be sweet

...come to the dark side.

I'd love to see the GT350 hunkered down and with some "fixes" applied. Maybe once we get out to track days again.
