Well the price of the 4.10's went from 1750 to 2450 so I don't know if I will be doing that or not. Fauck

Option 1: 4.10 Gears + 2450

Option 2: BimmerWorld Splitter = 1440
Brooks Motorsports Pro Wing = 1595

Opiton 3: Pee Bee Motorsports bumper/fender = 1500
Paint = 800
Brooks Motorsports Pro Wing = 1595
Brooks Dive Planes = 300
Total for Option 3 = 4195

I really want option 3 but it's just so damn expensive and it really does the same thing as opiton 2 but having wider fenders and a built in splitter would be way cooler. I just hate spending that much money on fenders and a bumper/splitter when the BimmerWorld splitter will provide just as much downforce for cheaper.

4.10's so you can figure out your shift points. do aero then brakes as you get closer to actually racing.

I knew I could count on a 17 year old to give me some good advice. The brakes really weren't a resonable option, unless I get into enduro racing (greater than 30 minutes) then what I have will do the job. It was really just between options 1 and 2. A wing would just be so bad ass.

I need a bigger garage, so I have somewhere to put all 16 tires that I will have next week. Who's ready for April 11th, I know I am.

Jay says race plates can't be used with stock sized springs. Stock sized springs are too soft for racing, so they didn't bother making them compatible. Looks like I'll be getting GC street plates.

So I've decided on getting another set of wheels so that I can run the ssr/yokohaka r-comp tire combination on the street and the enkei/slick combination on the track. I really want the gears because it would make my car scream but this just makes sense and it will allow me to run a true racing slick. Gears and aero are to come.

Now that may be true. What's the inner diameter of your springs. Next is springs are super cheap, why not get some linear springs for the kw's.

good question. do springs mount to the plates up top? will smaller springs mount ok on the bottom of the KW's?
