Dude, it seems you been there and done that with the d16. I want to know if you can email me at [email protected] for some questions on my d16 build autox.. my d series is slow and the class I'm running are way beyond power than just .40 over piston
That may be the issue that they have, the "slide" vs. "rotate". A car that is toed in will have a tendency to slide the rear under cornering (less controllable) and a car with toe out will tend to rotate the rear (more controllable). You're aplitting hairs at this point as the feel from behind the wheel is very similar, but the difference will show up in control, tire temps and consistency.
toe in will make the rear end want to "crab" (think old prelude 4WS...a little steering would steer rear in same direction to make car change lanes), toe out will make ther rear want to rotate (outside rear in opposite direction as front). If other people are spinning your car I'd say that they are not used to lift throttle oversteer typical of FWD cars. There are also A LOT of other factors that play into the overall balance of the car...not just rear toe.
I've actually always run rear toe out...on poly, delrin and sperical bushings. The only time I didn't run toe out was when I was running a 6 hour enduro at Homestead running NASCAR turns 3 and 4. The car had never been on the banking and I wanted to play safe so i "detuned" the alignemnt.
I've driven one, I found it pretty entertaining. Obviously it would need some suspension work and I'm not about to buy a rusted out bucket, that's for sure. The idea behind it would be for me to build a Forester STI.
Saw your closed thread about your wife. Sorry to hear that. I'm no password cracker but if you both use the same computer try a keylogger. You may be able to find one to down load on the net. I used to have one. It worked. I was going through a similar situation and I used it to help bust my ex-wife. Best of luck!
thanks for the rep, the numbers i gave were probably based on my det can timing maps only, not based on any dyno time. i actually pulled a good bit of timing from mine from 12psi on up when the clutch started slipping and it made it worse, so it definately made more power.... ended up having to drop the boost, the lost a cylinder, pulling it out sunday or monday to see what happened.... going GSR with a descent shot this time.
