First use of the MegaSquirt3's 2-step launch control, limited to 5000rpm.

Appears to work quite well :)
Lots of wheel spin (wet & slippery surface).

I thought you were at stock height. You can appears lowered.

Don't know how you got that idea...
Its at minimum legal height.
From memory that's 345mm front eye brow height, 335mm rear.

I guess when you said minimum legal height I assumed it was like places here that place laws on car mods where you can not lower the car at all. So legal height is stock height in some places.

Can you give me an idea how far the center of the wheel is to the fender? These struts might work for me after all.

Centre of the wheel to fender = eyebrow height :)

Oh, i forgot to mention, the rear is too low by about 10mm.
As in, its about 10mm lower than the legal height.

I need to build up some rear coilovers to fix it.

The South Australian legal heights are listed in here: http://www.sasuspension.com.au/media/do ... eights.pdf
Its actually a really good guide on how far you can drop a car without compromising on compression travel too much.

How many mm lower do you think you could go and retain good travel?

For the driving i like to do, i wont go any lower.
When i get the rear coilovers made, ill stick to those legal heights or a tad higher.

Did you measure your wheel frequency at all? Based on my car's weight my spring setup would match closer by going with 8/5kg setup, but the ratio based on the stock rates would come up with 8/7+kg.

One of my runs from OzGym yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIanM9v2LDY

Need to do something about the weak handbrake.
Very frustrating taking a tight line into a corner, only to have the handbrake not grab hard enough to lock the rear wheels :(
