Very nice pics! Noticed that you do not have any fender-wheel gap? Are you dropped? If yes, is your suspension set up better than stock?

Very nice! What tires and suspension setup do you have? Oh and did that EVO IX in your last pic ever get around you? :P

My real question is are you seriously "vertically challenged", I am only 5'8 and my head is on the roof with a helmet on!
Shots of my F on the track look about the same and I am on stock suspension.

Looks like fun! How did you do? You're definitely dropped, curious on what and how it handled at the track

my suspension setup is : eibach springs, f-sport rear sway bar, 15mm h&r wheel spacers all around.. and yes its better than stock mainly due to the increase in camber ( but still not enough ) <<< especialy in the front

oem bridgestones , started the day with about %30 rear tred and %60 front ended with %10 rear and %1 front.. also wore out a set of front pads in one day with no fade till the last session.. and averaged 5.1mpg..the evo in question is one of my friends and is niceley modified, his car is about .5 sec a lap faster.. we switched cars for a session and my evo experience was great.. the car turns in super sharp and is very easy to drive but i wouldnt trade... i plan some mods this winter so next year its on..

are you kidding i went to understeer city and in-lift street..lol turn in was a bit lazy as well.. the car needs a non stagered wheel/tire setup and a real lsd thats probobly worth 3 sec a lap.. or more camber but thats not that easy.. i plan on running 255 all arund and a torsen diff next year..

it was awsome!!! i did kill a new v8 M3 but i think that was due to the lack of experience of the driver.. but the only person who passed me was my friend in the evo.. the car was really consistent all day. if you ever get a chance to track your F do it, just have some $$ set aside for brakes and tires..
