I'm up in Canada under ASN rules, which are mostly the same as SCCA. One rule that is the same is the use of "special bolts" to adjust camber for non-competition purposes provided that it is approved by the manufacturer.

I have found for MR2s that you can use them in the FRONT only as per factory documentation. I haven't found yet what is said for 90-93 Celica, so I thought would ask here to see if anyone has dealt with this yet.

Thanks

Nope, none were ever listed for the Celica.

Sorry man. This is one advantage I have running in Street Prepared under SCCA rules.

I wish that wasn't so. Oh well some camber would have been nice, don't think I can justify the bump in class.

Yeah it's unlikely. I actually run an X-runner in HS. Seems a much friendlier index for me.

HS has been good to me this year, I don't think I want to go anywhere. I think I would like to grab a rear sway bar soon as I have the remaining points to do so and they are cheap. I'll see how my Hawks fair out there in a couple weeks time at the next events.

RSB takes you out of stock w/ SCCA... sadly.

that's no fun, we get one prep point for RSB for a max allowable of two points to remain in stock class. Currently I am using no points, so a sway bar would awesome, a set of dedicated r comps would be nice too at a cost of another point but the re11s are not bad for now.

That's what we run on the truck.

I love em so far, sidewall seems crazy stiff. I would definitely buy them again. How do you find yours are wearing so far?

So far so good as it's a semi-daily driver. And the owner of the truck drives like an ass...

The sidewalls are stiff but a little softer (at least I feel) than the older RE01s. Overall traction though, mucho.

Video isn't the best quality, but the re11s ran pretty good yesterday in the wet. I didn't figure they would be too good but I didn't feel much hint of understeer, they felt very confident.

Can't wait to have my brakes done for the next event, now to find a rear sway bar....

You're allowed to use an RSB in stock?
