Just FYI, Hans was not sure what the torque specs were for the 6 bolts that hold the drive extension in place that he said you could remove to have more room to work. So I called Lysholm and they...

How many miles do you have so far on that setup? And for those miles how often did you push your car hard? 60mm on stock internals. Wow. I'm both excited and scared now. Time for a dyno.
