    H Street setup help

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I'm new to this platform and I'm 2 weeks away from autox season opener I need some help/advise for H Street setup.

    my H street setup plan

    16x7 4x108 rpf1 with 205/45/16 re71
    drop in filter
    cat back exhaust
    koni yellow

    I was looking for ots koni yellow's but can't find them for (Front) '18 ST does anyone have the part#? I found the rear koni's at tirerack Part# 8040-1419SPORT

    I'm not sure if there is any changes on '18-'19ST front suspension structure if not ots konis that works on '13-'17 should work on '18-'19 as well. Thanks in advance.

    Great advice. I ran like 3 years on the stocks. Last year ran off the shelf konis. This year trying a custom valved and degassed set. The stock ones worked well enough imo. I’d rock them till have good amount seat time in it so when and if do switch you have original base line on handling.

    I was able to codrove a friend stock ST and I really like that way it handles but lots of body roll, that's the reason why i bought one and decided to fully prep it for HS.

    I know it's gonna different coming from FRS STX prepped and ND1 STR prepped then going back to street class.

    Sweet. I purchased them from a guy on here. They were done by pro parts if remember correctly. I do run with FVSCC for most part. I suspect many will hit up more events with them this year for the miller park reason. Are you gonna do the 2 day event the first week of May in the Dells? Great parking lot and tons of fun. Hope to see you around.

    I ran Bilstein B6s front/ Koni yellows last season because Bilstein was out of stock for the rears. I finally got the rear B6s on after the end of the season and preferred that setup a lot more during spirited driving than the Konis in the rear, even after repeated fiddling with the settings. That being said, I'm a relatively new autocrosser and definitely not a suspension engineer.
    I had used the Bilsteins in the front because Koni didn't offer an ST- specific front strut- they would have been my first choice because I was pretty happy with my Yellows when I was campaigning my WRX with them.
    '17 Magnetic with nav, sunroof, and black wheels. Bilstein B6s, K&N drop in.

    I've been using the stock pads, they bite plenty well for autocross and I haven't run into a course where fade ever got to be an issue.

    One thing I’d add to anyone’s list is upgraded fluid. I cooked mine few times on faster layouts and when co driving my car. I have tried hawk hps 5.0 pads and hated them compared to stock.
