    Default took first at my first AX in tne S2K

    Didn't think I'd do quite so well but the S2K is good at inspiring confidence in the turns. Spun out twice, once in two different sections where I got greedy with the go pedal. It is fun getting this car on the edge of its limits in regards to rear end traction.

    After everything found out my alignment isn't all that good as when I measured the various control arms they were all different lengths. The got close to the alignment numbers I wanted but it appears they tried to make the minimal amount of adjustments to do so. I.e. my front driver arms are longer than the passenger front and my left wheelbase is about .5" longer than the right.

    On a vanity and possibly slight performance note I gave in and ordered 38mm rear bolt on spacers a the fender gap was killing me every time I looked at the S2K

    Don't align the car with rod lengths. Align the car by pointing the tires in the same direction. You will never ever get a good alignment trying to get 16 bars the same length.

    Agree, but it is worthwhile starting from a point where both sides of the car are symmetrical in appearance. now the mounts need to be square and symmetrical as well... the alignment initially done was sub par. Talked with the owner proprietor on the phone and he said he would try to make it right.
