For Showroom Street class you cannot modify the suspension from OEM, so if you want to stay in that your only option is to use tire pressures to reduce understeer by increasing front pressure and/or lowering rear pressure. If you don't have one, get a tire pyrometer and learn how to use it and know what it is telling you.

And the golden rule is that the most most improvement is to be made with the nut behind the wheel!
Well, i have Toyo R888’s ready to go for the track and I am planning on attending the next autocross driver training school in the spring. So I have those 2 boxes checked. When I do one of these upgrades I know i’ll need a new alignment.

Any thoughts on what the best upgrade of the two that I originally posed?
