Good point. OP: how do you warm up your tires before each session?

One thing I forgot to mention, did you already have your alignment pins pulled from your front upper mounts? If not, that can be done at a pretty low cost $100-150 including alignment as well.
yea i got the pins removed, added .2 camber which really isn't enough to make a big difference.

okay so reading over everyone's comments, i think my first necessary move is wheels and tires.

the outer thread on my RE-11's are pretty much gone. I might want to put in the camber plates at the same time to extend the life of my new tires.
