So anyone have any insight on my alignment?

For other people running 0 toe all around, is it pretty easy to get your ASC to kick on if you push it in a corner semi-hard? I did not like that, since I keep ASC on while driving normally, it is extremely annoying to be interrupted by ASC while not even pushing the car that hard.

How about the impact of sway bars and strut braces and lowered ride height on handling for the evo x?

not enough camber could cause this (since you didn't mention it), as ASC kicks in anytime there is a severe loss of wheel speed/traction. rolling on the shoulder of a tire could cause this

but ASC in general is VERY easy to trigger in our cars. Unlike other AWD cars, the Evo X's system is 100% active. It is ALWAYS working on all 4 wheels. Any time even one wheel lifts/loses traction/etc, it WILL trigger. That's just the nature of our advanced system. Other cars simply keep on chugging, but the Evo X will recognize such changes, even if they're only for a split second. If I approach my driveway at a bad angle, one of my tires is airborne and it triggers ASC.

Also ASC cuts throttle, which is arguably more dangerous sometimes. I prefer DD'ing with ASC one off - but two off is simply wreckless for the street imo.

I'll get to that tomorrow probably. Will probably be bored at work while waiting for equipment to finish running.

So what is the consensus on a DD Evo...with GT Worx Springs on the GSR shocks for alignment? My last alignment (attaching a pic of it), I had more wear on the outside of my tires than the inside. I just ordered some new Dunlop ZIIs and when I have them mounted/balanced I want to get another alignment to make the tread wear as even as possible!

Ohlins. Camber: -2.5f/-1.5r Toe: 0 all around.
I understand how the rear alignment is controlled with the offset hole in the washer, the question is, who runs aftermarket rear alignment components instead of stock? I've heard the stock can move after you hit a few rumble strips or do some hard driving(autox). MRT mentioned it in one of their videos. I haven't had my rear checked after an autox season though, so I can't say. Anyone had their alignment checked after a while and see it has moved from where it was?

My aftermarket alignment stuff has stayed put. I pulled out the stock alignment bolts and replaced them with exact fitting bolts from lowes. All my rear alignment is done via the camber and toe arms.
