Simply loving them. Entirely changes the feel/confidence level when pushing it.

Were they a pain to deal with or was the service good? What was the wait time?

I agree. Rear wing is just completing developing stages - it will be ready in time for LVSW @ MFest.

AST was a pleasure to deal with, and they certainly know their stuff when it comes to setting up suspension systems.

This really raises the confidence level of the systems and knowing the fact that if there is a question - a knowledgeable team is on hand willing to help.

This will be coded out shortly in-house, we've done this for a number of other track vehicles.

ohhhhh talk to us more about sorting the airbag issue..... this is the only thing that stopping me from swapping out the seats, here in the uk ANY dash light is an instant mot fail, in other words the will not be allowed to be driven on the street.

I may have just answered your email? I'll work on coding just after the S/C finishes tuning.

Looks great! How do you run 265s in the front without completely destroying the fender liner at that height? What are the wheel offsets?

Also lighter than all round....

sorry for the derail OP... car is awesome!!
