On the topic of suspension , what should I look for if I want hardcore cornering stick and grip , high speed stuff , not autocross but like wide open tracks and such.

What kinda setup should I look at for that ? Also what other parts join in on helping handling , like I have heard of sway bars and such but dunno what they do. Someone wanna gimme a little tutorial ?

Here's the extent of my knowledge , I had a Acura Integra , handled great. Back end was really loose though. Stuck 17' x 8's on it , with Yokohama Parada rubber ( Z rated ) , helped tonnes in the handling. But the rear end was still waaaay loose. Any hard left to right type corners totally unloaded the back end and made it feels as though it was drifting but it wasnt' ( get my meaning ). So anyways how would I clean something like that up ?

I am looking at getting a 240 ( S13 or S14 not sure yet ) and dropping the RB25 in it. After that it's all handling. What should I look at for Killer handling at high speed ?

I am not a total n00b when it comes to cars , so you can use some pretty complex terms and I will come out ok.

Thanks guys , love this site and Nissan Power

Well geez, with the 240SX especially you have a range of things to do to solve handling problems, you have sway bars, poly-urethane buchings, upgraded control arms, upgraded tension rods, coil-overs, camber plates. They all play a part in the cornering of the vehicle.

Ok so they play a part in the cornering. But what would I be looking at for my specific application ? Just telling me that there are tonnes of parts for helping correct such things is no help at all.

After forums are for help are they not ?

What specifically are you doing with the car? If you are drifting, you definately need the Hard Tie Rods we sell. They allow you to turn the wheel further to get you out of almost full sideways drifts. Traction rods are very helpful with drag racing and taking slop out in general. Rear Upper Arms will allow you to correct camber for tire wear, add negative camber for road racing and keep it level for drifting. Pillow tension rods are great for everything and take out the rest of the rear end slop.
Hope this helps,
Kevin

I wanna setup the car fer hard cornering at high speeds. Maybe a little Autocross and Solo runs , other then that it's all high speeds and NO drift. I am slowly picking up what I wanna do with the suspension setup , but fer the most part I will be doing hardcore HP upgrades 1st. So what's a good FULL system to start with for relatively little cash ? Just to hold the extra ummph the car will be putting out ?

I would start with the FLT-A2 suspension and the Rear Upper Arms. This will allow you to dial in your tire temps at the track.

You want your tire temps to be even across the surface of the tire and from tire to tire.

A higher temp indicates that one section of the tire is not contacting the road evenly across its width. You then can adjust your suspension to try to make the tire contact evenly. If the center if the tir is too hot you may want to lower the pressure. If the inner edge is hotter you may want to chenage the camber or toe - same for the outer edge.

This degree of suspension tuning is really beyond my needs right now, bu that is my general understanding to this point.
