Dont want to flame, but. You dont want anything off that^^^ car. ( not enough front spring , too low, wheels too narrow, over weight.
)
I have never seen cars that are non stock ( read :"pro solo" SM
and EP ) class so out shape.

I'm not saying his set-up is ideal, but..., It could have non-stock pick-up points which account for the ride height. 7" is max wheel for EP without weight penalty. And, the front, while probably not stiffly enough sprung, looks more in need of a swaybar than increased spring rate. Only the times tell the true story, IMO. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

With out getting into an agrument... I'm no expert, but... You can "run" wider than a 7" wheel... since from the look of it . ( the cage/hoop. ) He's already carring the weight penalty.

As for the front sway bar... I rather have more spring than a bar, that way you don't pick up the inside front wheel. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif Not-so-good with an "open pin" dif.
For or the good of the thread.
Here are my rabbits :
This one, some times "push-es" a little ...

... and some times it does'nt.
( like when, the worn rear beam bushings get overwhelmed. )

Re: Post your favorite autocross action shot! (Gazornan)

Here's me flogging my daily at an earlier CCR-SCCA event in Rock Hill, NC (where I met Gazorman).

Brad stopped by for a few rounds at Statesville with my youngest son. Saw your car and the Brown Rabbit run until they shut down the course. Stayed to watch the yellow Lotus and then the little guy had enough (it was hot!).
