what size track do u run at? i ran a 2001 zx2 last year it wasnt too bad of a car my 96 egt that im running this year is alot faster. yes un hook the sway bar completely just unbolt both sides and let it hang there it wont get in the way this will reduce wheel spin on your driver front and loosen up the car alittle. if u run 3/8 or bigger i would suggest running 195/60/15 if your running 1/4 or smaller then keep the 14's on there. i run tire pressures at 30lf, 35rf,40lr,40rr. at my track we have to run pressures 30 and above

it just depends on your track rules weather you can run lower pressure's but at my track and others in the area have to have atleast 30lbs for safty reasons, it would be nice to be able to run lower pressures and tubes but they check pressures after each race

I run a 91 EGT and run air pressures as follows
LF-25 - 28
RF-30 - 32
RR-32 - 35
LR-32 - 35

I usually start there and work with the track as it changes through out the night. I hope this helps you out.

Dont feel bad thats what I got 2nd to also at our last race. Hopefully that will change with some setup I have done to my car.

hey wanted to get an update on how your season was going with the ZX2? I finally found a 98 ZX2 yesterday and start the building process today! Have a few big races left in the season here and i hope to get it done in within two weeks or so, with the biggest obstacle being the roll cage. Other than unhooking the sway bar, have you made any other set up changes during the year?

redlined man, i think i emailed you on youtube, im from california, you are the one with the green 26 car?
