-1.0 with 0 toe in the rear should be good. That's where mine is now for both street and race...

Yes, I'm running non-muellerized JIC's with 550 lb. front springs and 700 lb. rear springs. If you want, I can put you in touch with Rick Jung who can make you a set of caster adjustable plates specifically for the JIC's, cost is around $115 but well worth it!

The caster plate stuff is very unique, so you guys are lucky to have Russ on board to share his knowledge.

Actually, I've been waiting forever for someone to release a camber/castor adjustable plate. Until Ground-Control did there weren't any. And even GC's plates don't fit all coilovers. Not to mention it puts the front suspension loads on the mounting studs rather than on the strut tower itself.

Just a little FYI, The Tire Rack has the Bridgestone Re01R's on special for $146 per tire. I saw that today and decided now was the time to order up a set.

For a budget competition street tire what about Kumho Ecsta MXs?

Can't go wrong with a good deal on RE-01Rs though

No, the MX's are completely non-competitive.

The Kumho has too soft of a side wall so during competitive runs it feels very squishy. Consequently it's very tough to tune around that particular problem.

The Bridgestone's are good but the Neova's are still at the top of the list when ranking STU tires.

Note that I mentioned 'budget' competition tire...naturally tires such as the RE-01s or Yokos are superior however you pay the price.

I suppose it depends on your approach to tires...if you want something quickly and highly 'expandable' I'd still recommend the Kumhos as a quick fix however if it were my money I'd simply run whatever I have whie I saving up for some decent rubber.
