AutoX times are very driver dependent. You must be one herculean driver.
What kind of bilstein/eibach set-up were you runnin' in the rear that netted only a .3" drop? Perhaps your "stock" rear suspension is the M-technik "sport" suspension. Otherwise, your buggy would be violently pushing/plowing all over the place with your mismatch set-up. These cars understeer at low speeds in stock form. You have headed far further down the road of understeer with your hybrid set-up. But if you say it works like a charm - then I beleive you.
I got bilstein and eibachs (1.3 drop) up front. The back is completely stock. Originally, I had the back springs in (.3 drop)but I took them out for a very slight tilt affect. With this set-up the car is not as bouncy/firm in the back. At the LA chapter autocross, I posted some pretty decent times.
