Yes Steve farkas is the man for alignments, and is a perfectionist also and he doesnt charge too much and is an avid autocrosser himself as you said.

yea his car looks like it's fast. I wish i could throw a supercharger in mine but it would defeat the purpose all together. I need low end torque and handling.

The Fantastic 4 probably has the sickest AW M3's, although I think it's Fantastic 3 now, since gixxer left. Yeah for Autocross you really don't need a supercharger. You are already doing well with all the mods you have now. Plus driving school, dude you'd def. winning championships soon enough.

thanks. yeah im pretty much done with my setup. i'm just trying to find the right setup for mys suspension to fit me and im good. but to be able to do that, i'm gonna need a LOT of alignments. u know a good alignment shop?

im gonna try 106 st tire on thursday. my suspension guy is telling me about his guy in connecticut but i'm not gonna trek out there every week.

the few things i may do to the car are intake, headers, exhaust. i don't want hp but if i can get a lil more torque, it'll help.

Gixxer didnt leave he just moved to edgewater, he just raced his car back in may at NJMP track. I have yet to race the m3 but did in the s2k. But there are a lot of supercharged m3's being raced on the track, the sc definitely helps on the straightaways. But in all honesty, i would rather race in a miata or s2k, there cheaper to race, or maybe a BR-Z, i heard good things about them.

my brother uses the BRZ and its still stock but he's been winning every weekend and his times are comparable to the modded miatas and s2k's. i can't wait to see what happens when he throws suspension on it. still too early to decide who does the best job though and he doesnt wanna be the guinea pig

quick question about alignment, I am going to do the suspension this week and how long should I wait before I come to your shop for alignment?
