Yeah we got some snow here too, craziness. I'm kinda excited to see how my new tires do in it though.

More parts were waiting for me when I returned home from STL. Ground Control rear weight jacks and Ground Control race (monoball) camber plates. These weight jacks are baller, they allow you to adjust ride height without removing the wheel. You can do it while the car is still on the ground.

It's gonna be really nice for the shop that's gonna be doing my corner balancing, oh wait I can't find one. It will at least make it easier for me to dial in the ride height I want.

I had the Vorshlag ones but sold them a couple weeks back.

Edit: What suspension did you have on the car this weekend?

I don't know if there is a "need them" time or not, they are really nice when it comes to keeping your tire wear consistent. When on the track you will wear the outter edge of the tire more, with camber plates you can dial in some negative camber to help stop that. Then go back to stock when you get home.

Either way you should be ok. My car is no where near 50/50 right now and I haven't had any negative effects.

There's always those KAT scales over my the Great Mall, you can see them from I-35. I may just wait till Heartland Park, they have a legit scale.
