Coilovers were set pretty hard for my tracknight and i found them pretty good.

So there is ha!

Only changes I made to the suspension were the Allan key adjusters in the top mounts, turned them quite a bit up to H. Wasn't something I noticed much as its first time I've had this on the track.

Any suggestions on how to minimise the roll?

Car is stripped out in the rear with front and rear strut braces.

For next time I'm looking at a set of A048 or some 595 RSR tyres.

Have a play about with the suspension the next trackday and feel what works best for the car and your driving. Try and find what settings other Civic D2 owners use for track.

You thought about a cage ?

Il ask around.

I had thought of a cage previously, however I'm not too sure about having one in the car. It's a pretty clean example and I'm not sure if I fancy doing the butcher work required for a cage. If I had a rough one I'd do it no bother.

Believe a cage would significantly increase the rigidity.

I've also looked at the rear x-brace bars.
