The aero. Until I added aero, I would have sworn there was no way it would make that much of a difference. After adding aero, I wouldn't want to go back. It just keeps the car settled through the higher speed stuff while keeping the car loose enough for slow speed stuff.

I run -3 to -3.5 with just a little toe and 6.5 caster. If you under -3 run more caster.

Video from my practice event yesterday. So happy to be back to racing.

Car is driving very nicely with all the changes. With the seat in the car I have enough confidence to put a rear bar back on. We'll see how it goes.

MCS Installed!

At first, Vorshlag didn't include an upper perch for my rear divorced spring with my initial MCS package. After a lot of rather unfortunate miscommunication, they are sending a newly designed component, but I'm going to continue to use this SPL version instead. Big shout-out to Turner + crew at SPL for getting their upper perch (usually only sold as part of the midlink kit) to me with overnight shipping -- rather cheaply too.

Season is off to a good start. I took second by a few tenths at the opener losing to an e92 but beating out a few other well/full prepped examples. Data and video show there was more time out there. Car is driving great but I always say that lol. The longer travel and lower ride feel great. With two events down I feel confident that the seat was the component I was really missing to get the car to another level competitively.

Video attached. Apologies for the sound quality. we'll see if the windslayer helps.

my biggest competition locally is the 2019 spring national winning e46 driven by my buddy but it was sidelined at this event. I hope to have a chance to benchmark soon.
