              I'm bored at work so I'm posting my setup
              Purpose of the car: Occasional track days, mainly driven on weekends and sunny days.

              Suspension - Tein HA Coil overs
              Spring Rate - Not sure
              Control Arms Front - Stock
              Control Arms Rear - Stock
              Bushings - Stock
              Alighment - Was told by previous owner the alignment was more for street so it doesn't eat tires. As far as I can tell this isn't true. My inner tire does wear faster, from what I can see. I haven't had to replace all four tires yet... It was also supposedly corner balanced, which I don't believe because the left front tire kept locking up at my last track day.

              Chassis Reinforment - Stock strut tower bars and HICAS lock out kit by Tomei
              Brakes - Stock, have Nismo R-Tune pads awaiting install.

              Notes: The way the car handled on the track was great, the original owner did a great job setting the car up, it just needs some fine tuning. I would liken it to a new GTR without the weight. Very nimble, and fun. Only problem I had was engine oil temps getting way too hot after 4 or 5 laps.

                  and rear tires to match, but typically run fat junkers for the track
