When you're autocrossing, you want lots of camber anyway. You guys should be able to fit 235/40R17s without much issue, and possibly 245/40s depending on wheel choice.

I guess I need to think about some camber plates so I can add neg. camber for AutoX and take it back to somthing normal for daily driving. Any suggestions?

No, just get your alignment redone at the start of the season. Even if you drive on your autocross tires everyday, you'll wear them out autocrossing before the negative camber wears them out on the street.

I've gotten 25k out of S03s and 30k out of Dunlop M3s with 2+ degrees of camber in the rear. It's fine. But, I'd wait til spring to bother with it because you want minimal camber in the winter around here.

I see a black STI with blue Nevada plates like every day in Tahoe City. I think he works in Alpine. Is he on the boards?

Go here: Microsoft PowerToys for XP (There are other useful gadgets here as well, but look at those later)

Get The Image resizer. (ImageResizer.exe)

Install it.

Right click the image file on you desktop or in Windows Explorer in whatever directory you have it stored in and select resize images.

Hit the advanced button

click Custom, and type in 80 x 80 and hit OK.

Should make you a nice shrunk copy. Upload it on the User CP - avatar page.

I could have done all but the last step for you, but hey, teach a man to fish.....

Haha, that looks terrible. Just open it in paint, go to stretch/skew, put 10% in instead of 100% for both.

The way out is through
Default

Screw that...

1) Download the Adobe Photoshop demo from www.adobe.com.
2) Download a crack program that converts the demo to a full copy.
3) Download a bunch of anti-virus software to uninstall all the virii, trojan horses, back doors and root kits that come with looking for and installing software cracks.
4) Check out some of the crazy monkey porn that pops up while crack hunting as well.
5) Attempt to install the Photoshop crack.
6) Repeat steps 2-5 until you finally get a working crack.
7) Open the image in Photoshop.
Copy the background layer to its own new layer (Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V).
9) Discard the background layer (drag it to the layer's trashcan).
10) Select Image->Canvas Size from the menu.
11) Set the height to 800 pixels to make the image square and on a transparent background.
12) Select Image->Adjustments->Levels from the menu.
13) Set the input levels to 0, .60, 200 to enhance contrast, click Ok.
14) Select Image->Image Size from the menu.
15) Set the width and height to 80 pixels, use 'Bicubic Sharper' resampling, click Ok.
16) Select File->Save for Web from the menu.
17) Select GIF, Lossy:0, Perceptual pallet, 256 colors, No dither, Check Transparency, no Matte, No Transparency Dither, Uncheck Interlaced, 0% web snap, then click Save.
1 Save as "NicksSTi_avatar.gif".
19) Exit Photoshop, no need to save the .jpg version changes.
20) Upload the new avatar!

Simple!

You better have gotten a harness for the passenger side... Nice looking bar. Though I wouldn't use it for anything other than autocross.
