LSD of course

Double adjustable AST coilovers, 600/500 range?

Vorshlag Camber plates for lots of camber up front

Did I mention LSD
Fixed that for ya... :biggrin:

As another poster replied, STU-legal custom/lightweight downpipe, cats and after-cat exhaust is going to be a big "boost" to performance for the 135. Other weight saving items can only help the curb weight heavy 135, such as a lightweight battery and fixed back racing seats (25# minimum weight per, with brackets).

One thing to remember: the twin turbo set-up of the 135/335 is currently not legal in STU, until a proposed update to the class rules goes thru. Please write the Solo Events Board asking for this rule to be amended at Include your name, SCCA membership number and that you would be running STU if allowed. I bet this update will happen and the 135 would be legal for STU in 2009.
