    Default Steering improvements

    I did a track day at Anglesey yesterday and whilst the civic is great the steering isnít brilliant. Iím getting slow reaction on fast direction changes shows a weakness in the steering - itís almost like thereís a lag in the assistance kicking in. I hadnít actually realised until doing some digging today that the assistance is electric so:-
    Problem with rack or electric motor
    Does it need
    -a solid slider
    - solid or polybush rack mounts
    Thanks

    Have you had a fast road setup done? It transforms the handling and greatly improves the sharpness of the steering.

    no whats the fast road setup? is it just a geometary setup?
    its got bespoke coilovers and adjustable top mounts to improve castor and camber. the rear is lowered and has more camber than standard

    Fast Road Set Up (FRSU) is getting the car properly aligned to suit your style of driving. Have a read of this thread.

    The general frsu settings are: 1 degree negative camber all round, 1 degree toe out at the front and 1 degree toe in at the rear...

    Worth noting that you need front camber bolts and rear camber arms to achieve this. Oh and a thicker JDM rear anti roll bar helps a lot.
