Thanks! I did Delrin subframe/diff bushing, switched from KW S/O to KW CS and added front splitter and wing all at the same time. All together they lowered my track times approx. 4 seconds at TWS and 5 seconds COTA. This was only my second time at COTA so some of that was still learning that track.

Weight loss program

Spent the day yesterday stripping the rest of my interior. I still have a lot more to do so will update pics as I make progress.

P.S. Most of the interior, suspension, brakes, KW S/O and Vorshlag camber plates are availably if anyone is interested.

GT4 Front Splitter and Canards

Swapping out my APR front splitter for a Mode Carbon GT4 front splitter and canards. I'm hoping to get more down force with this new setup.

Why not just order a larger APR splitter?

Properly securing a larger APR splitter would require use of 4 larger adjustment rods. I prefer the cleaner look of my APR splitter with 2 small rods or the molded look of the GT4 splitter.

GT4 splitter installed

Got the new front splitter installed. Lining everything up properly to drill holes for screws was quite a process. Now I'm test fitting the canards to see where I would like to mount them.
