Honestly I don't know what I am going to do, but I would only run 17" rears at the track and not on the street. The car is almost too low for my tastes aesthetically, yet the ride is outstanding. Seriously best setup I have ever had on an m3 for ride compliance. Everything is dialed in perfectly now, and I hate to upset that by switching out to taller rear springs. Plus, there are absolutely no rubbing issues. Sorry for the crappy pic but gives an idea of ride height.

I run 0.25" above recommended with TCK DA's...I think it's perfect for my setup. 13.75" Front and 13.25" Rear.

It looks so low to me , but ok thanks much for the thoughts and I won't worry about the height at least not until I get different tires.

I am going to shoot some gopro footage this afternoon, but really the car is pretty amazing. Garth drove it down from NJ the other day. It took him 5 hours due to rush hour traffic and his GPS screwing him on the route. When he got here we talked in the driveway for close to 45 minutes, all while the car was idling, a/c humming. Then we went out and did some pulls. The car didn't falter once. That to me is a pretty solid real world test. He also raised the rpms by 100 at idle so my clutch chatter is whisper quiet compared to before. Took my wife out to dinner in it last night and not once did she complain or ask why it sounded like it was about to fall apart. So yeah, right now that GT-R itch isn't even a tickle.

Talking to Jake this week about 60-130 times got me excited to go out and make a run or two in this car. So, first let me get the particulars out of the way, 70% ethanol, full tank of fuel (1/4 tank pump and 3/4 sunoco e85), Hankook 275/35-18 (lol...yeah I know tell me about it, but needed tires that fit in a hurry) about 55 degrees out. So first pull was iboost 3 and I hit it hard at about 45 mph, car went completely sideways at 70. First time the Proefi traction control hasn't been able to keep it straight...also only second time at iboost 3 . So, back down to iboost 2 and then eased in to it from 45mph full throttle around 80 mph. With decent tires, 85% ethanol and max boost settling, and no modulation of the throttle this car is going to post some pretty quick 60-130 times.

Agreed. And I honestly think this speaks volumes for the Proefi TC. It isn't just the fact that it is keeping the car straight and not letting the tires spin, it is that it is doing all that and allowing the car to still accelerate. Amazing! Anyhow, Scott just verified it as a 6.21 up an .03% incline.

I am not a 60-130 homer, just out enjoying the car, but the road opened up yesterday so I popped in the memory card and ran a 6.0. You can see the car having all sorts of traction issues in the graph, especially 75-85mph. I really need to get some decent tires. But this enforces how good the Proefi tc system is, no way I could do these pulls in a turbo car running aem on these tires. Again, this was with 70% ethanol and iboost setting 2 and a .5% decline. So far absolutely loving the Proefi!!

Car is looking sexxy TIME Charlie! I still can't believe those 60-130 times you are getting with those dinky 275 crappy tires out back (no offense ), crazy times man. I can only imagine if you were to put some nice meaty 305 drag radials in the back, along with your ProEFI TC, it would be over. Too bad you aren't considering to sell it anymore, I am sure someone would jump on this car QUICK!

The mod list is pretty intensive. I have no goals except to enjoy the car!

LOL! Thanks broski. Actually, funny you mention that. I will be listing it up for sale at some point. Anyone interested shoot me a PM. Also, just got a set of super rare black cube trim. Will install that this weekend and snap some pics. And for tire issue, am either switching to 9.5" rears with 35mm offset and running the MT 305s or rolling the current setup with toyo r888s 275/35-18.
