One potential issue for cars that use struts (like ours) is that the carbon springs have a larger OD vs traditional springs, and this could potentially reduce tire/strut clearance.

Wow crazy stuff. I didn't know carbon fiber could be compressed like that without it snapping.

You know what we need? A mesh screen that snaps into the pass side duct for DCT cars to protect the DCT cooler from debris. My cooler is looking pretty beat up. Just need for something substantial to nail that cooler and bust it open.

Wow--optional factory brake ducting kit for the Boss 302. Ford is serious about the performance of that car. How about you, BMW?
