Keep coming back and impressed thoroughly with your build. Purely epic!
Not to bombard your page brother...but...I stripped my e92, whole rear end...left the carpet from seats forward. Door panels off, roof liner off. Have an oem GTS cage, recaro profi XL's, mcs 2 ways, weight of car with me In it with 1/4 tank empty is 3456lbs. I'm 253lbs. I was quicker at Limerock last year with basic H&R coilovers, full interior. Is it because car is now not as balanced? I do have a GTS WIng but I feel I need the APR GT250 wing to help with rear traction now. Running 275x4 hoosier R7's 18x10 Apex Arc 8 and 305/285 Pirelli pzero DH on my BBS staggered e88's. Camber is -3.8 front and -2.1 rear......All thoughts are welcomed.

Make sure you have corner balanced the car after loosing the weight in the car. Also MCS are incredible and can be a great tuning tool for the car. One click can make a big difference. Might want to take some time or get someone to help you set them up.

Yes rear aero will help keep the rear planted. But keep in mind if you set the shocks for the GT4 wing it will change with the apr wing.

I got mine from Turner. They were very easy to install and works well to prevent rubbing when running wider tires.

Yes, as stated above you will usually have to corner balance and redo alignment after any mods involving weight reduction and or changes to the suspension. I do my own corner balancing and alignment as my car is no longer registered to drive on the street. There are a multitude of factors that results in faster lap times. Sometimes major changes to car set up does not immediately result in faster times due to driver not adapting to the new changes. Assuming that your new setup is better, your lap time will eventually get better as you adapt to the new setup. Sounds like you have a very nice setup!!!

Ortho,
Which wing you have the 61" or 67" ?
thinking of going with the 67" because I just added the Bimmerworld canards to my GT4 lip...your thoughts?

Very nice! I have the 61" and I removed the Gurney flaps to reduce downforce and drag. My top speed at COTA with this setup is the same as it was before adding aero. Just with more downforce! The 67" is too much downforce and drag for your setup.

10-4! Thank you
Can you explain to me as to why the 67" would be too much ?

It's 6" wider and adds considerable more downforce and drag than the 61".

8.5'x20' Spread Axle Trailer

Sold my flat bed and bought a new Cargo Craft 8.5'x20' spread axle Dragster trailer. Did some painting, added cabinets and a tire rack. Will be adding a compressor, AC and portable generator later.
