I finally picked up some 5mm spacers. Hopefully, that will fill the gap. 12mm didn't work. It rubbed like hell on turns and hard bumps.
Sorry bro your wrong, and mine don't rub

Running a lot of camber not necessarily a good thing but for LOOKS it's something you need to do

When will we see this beast at the track ?

You never ran you red car at the track Darwin you gotta bring this one out

PS. I can send you guys invitation to some privet track days with no morans at the track ...

We are running very conservative camber, many of the forum members here run a very aggressive number pass -2.5. We setup this to be driven daily/track plus for non drive axle to have more camber than the drive axle is good for handling. I learned that from the red car. Trust me..

You'll see this one at the track soon, as soon as stage 3 is finished.

I ran the red one at the track, first at mfest and 2nd at streets of willow. As much as i want to go, most of the track days are either on friday, monday or wednesday. I can't go on those days, weekends are reserved for wife and kid. Lol

But sent me pms on the upcoming track days. No more m3 for me tough, i'll bring out the porsche this time...

5mm spacers normally wouldn't make vibration. The wheels are still grabbing to the hub. Unless the BBS has chamfer edges that are really deep on the inside center bore area.

I'll check later on J's wheels. Since i'll be adjusting his suspension today.

The vertrasse spacers is $70 plus shipping.

Darwin, I did not know you had these spacers ! I would have bought them from you guys if I knew. I cleaned the hub yesterday with a wire brush. No more vibration.

Most of the time the buil-up on the hubs will create vibration ...

Ayyooo - sonic guy here as well, IMO that black gauge pod provides a really nice contrast from carbon fiber - if anything i would just paint it gloss black - car looks unreal.
