Don't have much time on them yet. I've been dealing with a crank hub issue, but that should be resolved soon. For the short time I've been running them though they've been good.

F3IGHTY Did the suspension changes affect the geometry or was a static alignment sufficient?

Geometry is dramatically affected. As with any suspension setup trade offs have to be made. I wonít say itís 100% optimized, but Iíve tinkered with every arm incrementally over the past 1.5 years.

Couple of thoughts on what would make this thread super relevant.

Data.

Pre-build laptimes and post build laptimes (on the same track with same driver) so we can see the difference the mods brought to the table.

I can't tell you how many people I've seen make all kinds of mods *before* learning how to drive.

444hp is not enought, I need more! Even though I'm scared to run without nannies or MDM on. But more power will make me faster!!!

Even more the the point, I've seen people that have gone so extreme in spring-rates, lowering and sway bar stiffness that they *lost* lap time, even if the car "looked super cool".

So my point is - and don't get me wrong, the mods look great - do they add a real lap-time advantage?

The used a Status Gruppe lip (as it was flat underneath) and mated that with the splitter. The splitter itself is custom made out of alumalite along with the chassis mounting.
