That's a great deal!

I've seen Jens' car up close a few times and his is perfectly done with respect to aero. Zero compromises.

Is anybody out there using the Bimmerworld rear spring perch?
I have KW's currently and their perch is a real pain to do any ride height adjustments with. I would like to find a solution without spending a ton of $ if possible and this looks to be the best priced one out there so far, but wondering if maybe one of the other two Ground Control options is a better way to go?

The articulating ones from GC are really nice. I had them on my E36 race car and was very happy with them. That being said, they are double or more the price of those BW ones. If you can justify the price difference they are worth it imo.

Getting some work done on my street/track car while all the local tracks are closed. Added the wing, hood vents, and fender spats. Also midway through wrapping the car. Test fit the new track wheels as well (Apex EC7R 18x10.5 +22 square)

Yeah they look amazing but having a hard time justifying the price. Hmmm, guess I'll have to think on this one for a bit!

Where you get those spats?


And are they held on by titanium bolts? If not it's cool I got a plug on Titanium bolts now

They are made by APR

They only come with 3M tape. I used rivnuts in the bumper with some M6 bolts to hold them on.

I wrapped w. 1080 and looking at redoing my front bumper again. Looks like 2080 is a nice step in an improved application.

Lost 2 lbs, 9.9 oz today with my quarantine mods. Rear seat releases are out, and the comm box bracket went on a diet.

COVID and the closure of tracks caused me to buy a bike. I had a bunch of clowns telling me not to buy a bike that requires assembly (even tho I said I can work on cars)...it was very easy and straightforward. It rides really well. Hopefully COTA will open back up soon, so I can ride the bike there.



Needs McLaren logos


The brake pads were cute lol

What is this latch for?
I meant to ask so many times and I keep forgetting. I played with this many times trying to figure out but could not see what it does

It's to hold a grocery bag or some nonsense. It's a joke.
