    I don't think the F1's or Invo's suck generally....just compared to the V's and ONLY in the handling dept. In the comfort department I'd have to give the advantage to the Invo's. The ride is really soft and I can dial up my damping settings on the KW's and the ride still feels soft/comfortable. Honestly, they may be a good tire for you with the Mopar coilovers. The V's and F1's are NOT uncomfortable by any means...just not as comfy as the Invo's.

    Gotcha, thanks Rick. The thing I'm thinking is like I said before on the setup ... the F1s took the stock suspension to it's limits, it was a good match. Not anymore, now I feel the Mopar suspension has taken the F1s to their limits and I need a better tire to fully reap the benefits of the Mopar suspension. Does that make sense? That's what I think anyway. So the V's next time then it is. 275s all the way around??

    Hey Rick, this is still kinda on topic ... what's the benefits of having wider tires in the rear? I've heard many things over the years but do you know the actual reason?? Handling wise that is.

    Scott, check out this thread I started a while back. Having wider tires in the rear gives you a larger contact patch (grip) while "launching" coming out of turns.http://www.srtconnection.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7509 It will explain it better than I can.

    You will get more benefit and control from a Pedders system, than all of the components you mentioned combined.


    Best of luck and be safe

    You can buy them separately. the most important ones in order for roadracing:
    1. EP1172 LX Rear Cradle Bushes
    2. EP6567 LX Front Radius Rod Bush
    3. EP6570 LX Front Upper Control Arm Bush Adjustable Camber
    4. EP7277 LX Rear Camber link
    5. EP7276 LX Rear Radius Arm Upper Standard Bush kit
    6. EP7281 LX Rear Trailing Arm Lower Front Bush
    7. EP7282 LX Rear Toe Link Bush
    8. EP7283 LX Rear Trailing Arm Lower Rear Bush
    9. EP2113 LX Bump Steer Correction Kit
    10. EP4107 LX Front Lower Shock Mount
    11. EP6568 LX Front Lower Control Arm Bush
    The upper control arm bushings will give you camber adjustability as will as increased control. You can add some nice negative cambers.
    I do assume you are running drop coils and better dampers. If not,
    here is what you should get from Pedders:
    2940 LX Front Lowering Coil approximate 50mm drop
    2940 LX Front Lowering Coil approximate 50mm drop
    141206 GSR LX GSR Rear Shock
    141206 GSR LX GSR Rear Shock
    144304 GSR LX GSR Front Strut
    144304 GSR LX GSR Front Strut
    7026R LX Rear Coil Approximate 45 mm drop
    7026R LX Rear Coil Approximate 45 mm drop

    You can go to our Pedders site. click on the LX on the top of the home page and learn all kinds of stuff for the LX.
    thanks
