I know I did, immediately, but I lost about 11 lbs per corner.

As for the M5, I don't doubt that it happened exactly the way you said...with your mods and his extra weight at less than triple digit speeds. For all we know he was carrying 8 extra gallons of fuel (8x6=48 lbs) + 200 lb passenger.
Thanks, so I guess I've lost approx. another 60-100lbs. of sprung weight...that's cool. As far as noticing a difference, I think it's hard to tell, but riding on these lightweight Morr monoforged VS7s, my car feels a bit more "tossable" yet more solid than the M6 Reps; can't say if it feels any faster or not than before though.
