Veilside version 1.





After looking at it closely the front rims BARELY fit! The front tires are close to the outer fender, but I'm only running -1.5 camber. I change it to -3 at the track.

Nice. I love it. How neutral does the car feel? How is the understeer compared to a staggered set-up? Also loving the caged Sentra.

i'm not the OP, but i run 17x9.5 all around and the car feels very balanced. it is however very subtle. if you have coilovers, i would highly recommend getting corner balancing done after your car is set up.

I haven't ran it on the track yet, but my old set-up was with 17x9's all around.

They felt VERY neutral and being able to rotate the tires every event is a big plus.

^^ yup. Another reason why I want to go equal sizes on all corners. Do any of you guys drift on this set-up? I'm on 245 rears and 225 fronts and all I do is understeer on the entries. I've resorted to clutch-kicking simply because feint/gas and feint/brake gets me massive understeer (+ our e-brakes are worthless). Frankly, I shouldnt have to with the horsepower we have. I've had every type of tire and combinations on there, too. super grippy, fronts, backs, worn to the wires, stock potenzas, etc. Just wondering if you guys see the understeer go away or if it is persistent.

Understeer on corner entry can have various causes. Sounds like you've tried al sorts of things. Have you tried to change the one thing that has always been there? You the driver?

Look at how abrupt your steering input is. Are you still on the brakes hard when you turn in? Hope the Yaw sensor is OFF when you try that. Otherwise the car will never let you play.

I've been running 225's on all 4 corners on stock wheels for the past year. I have a base model with no LSD and I can kick out the rear end at will. I'm not a drifter, but when I'm at the track it's very easy to slide the rear around corners and it also grips very well so it's not an oversteer monster either. Just very neutral and gratifying to drive really.

I'm just waiting to buy some wide wheels and some real rubber!

So, how much did this cost and where did you purchase this setup?

17x10 +25 5zigen FN01RC's in flat black, with 275/40 NT01's.

i don't want to judge how many days/hours of track experience you may have, but kolia may have a point about changing driver habits. also look at how you are turning into any turn - are you turning in too early? or maybe you're just not giving it enough steering input.

I have a base. Running 1.5way kaaz, i disconnected my abs for reasons you stated (discovered this when i first got it ). Whenever I try to initiate using only the steering wheel I understeer. Brake-feinting i can get usually, as long as i'm going fast enough. I'm mainly talking about tight courses, 2nd gear.

Axelerate...I know this is OT, but what tow hook are you sporting? I'm getting tired of screwing in my OE tow hooks before each event.
