    Car: mostly ae86
    Car use (e.g grip/drift): grip/circuit
    Front Struts: custom shortened ra28 converted to coilover
    Spring Rate/ Free Height: 275/4.9kg 200mm
    Inserts (brand/model): KYB AGX
    LCA's: xt130
    RCA's (size if you have them): custom 45mm
    Strut Tops: ae86 with an aditional modified Corona top hat retainer.
    Front Sway Bar: whiteline adjustable
    Castor Arms: stock

    Rear Springs: custom whiteline, variable rate
    Rear Shocks: kyb (holden wagon)
    Panhard Rod: my own custom
    4 Link: stock with bushes

    Bracing: My own custom cro-mo strut brace

    Pro's: stiff enough to be level all round but not soft enough to not slow me down over bumps

    Con's: Problem with rear rear suspension, suspect roll oversteer due to too soft a rear springs. Will likely go to my own custom coil-overs for the back to address the issue.

    Extra Comments: Also have custom lower mounts on diff to have a greater anti-squat angle.

    Setup i hope to be testing very soon!

    Car: keto
    Car use (e.g grip/drift): drift/grip
    Front Struts: xt130 converted to coilovers
    Spring Rate/ Free Height: eibach 8kg with helper springs
    Inserts (brand/model): tokico hts
    LCA's: sigma
    RCA's (size if you have them): 40mm ajps
    Strut Tops: cusco
    Front Sway Bar: Selbys 24mm adj
    Castor Arms: std extra thread cut new bushes

    Rear Springs: 6kg ajps 220mm
    Rear Shocks: tokico hts
    Panhard Rod: whiteline braced mount
    Traction brackets: whiteline
    REAR SWAYBAR whiteline 18mm adj

    4 Link: std length rose jointed 4 links till rego have channels to go equal after rego.

    Bracing: modified cusco front strut brace
    ultra racing fender bracing,
    cusco front castor brace
    full weld in cage
    tube rear end.
    Pro's: all adjustable
    Con's: havnt driven it yet!
    Extra Comments:The basis for it is predictability and traction independent of tyre usage, will give more details after I use it and no doubt change one or two things. Note the 8kg springs will have a heavier motor on top of them and the rears have a heavier diff acting on them.

    Car: RA60 with a 1JZGTTE
    Car use (e.g grip/drift): Track drift only, going through engineering atm.
    Front Struts: S13/G4
    Spring Rate/ Free Height: 8kg
    Inserts (brand/model): G4
    LCA's: MX63 with lock stops removed (7cm wider than factory)
    RCA's (size if you have them) :N/A
    Strut Tops: G4 S13
    Front Sway Bar: 24mm
    Castor Arms: Standard

    Rear Springs: 6kg 200mm
    Rear Shocks: Pedders Suzuki Sierra
    Panhard Rod: Factory
    4 Link: Factory

    Bracing: None

    Pro's: Front feels solid, predictable and flat when driven in a "grip manner". Stable under brakes. Has excellent ground clearance, ripple strips are nasty
    Con's: To soft at the rear, violent snap/roll oversteer. It is too soft in the rear compared to the front. Most likely the small factory rear swaybar and lack of castor don't help. Currently have to actually counter steer as the castor is very minimal.

    Extra Comments: Very happy with the setup for the money spent. Next steps will be too add as much castor as the factory rods will allow. Will then add a stiffer rear adjustable swaybar for the last practice drift day for the year.

    Ultimately it will have:

    Adjustable castor arms
    Adjustable lower trailing arms
    Adjustable panhard rod (watts linkage with adjustable roll centre would be lovely)
    Decent front S13 coilovers (Apexi N1 maybe?)
    Swap in the front JZA70 Bilsteins into the rear of my car. Will swap appropriate lower bushes when doing this (Already have these).
    Fit lock spacers (Already have these)
    Maybe fit some Xris modified cut and shut S13 steering arms. My brother just happens to have a set of these
