Smile Some new goodies for the Track!

We have a little time left before the GTGP 2010 (http://www.globaltunergp.com/) so we want to make the HPF M3 as fast as we can for this event. It may not be enough to get our car fully dialed and being new-comers to the racing circuit we are at a big disadvantage, but we are still going for it. We are looking to enter the car into the tuner category.

Here is our new setup. We had KW Variant 3 coil overs on there before (in the video below) and they are a good street/track coil over. Now it's time to step up to a track purpose suspension, and KW was kind enough to work with us and dial in the KW Club Sport Coilovers which are valved for the stiffer linear springs we're now running. We're also running the Turner Motorsports camber plates which allow caster adjustment as well as camber, along with some VAC parts to stiffer up the rest of the suspension. We are also switching to the Ground Control front and rear sway bars. Once we install this, we're going to add a bit more camber to the car and take it back to the track. I'll post up videos of the next track session.

For those that haven't followed the car, here's a video of our last session.

My Ride: A car
No fair beating up on street cars with that beast! J/k, that car looks stupid fast, good luck in your event!

Those turner camber plates look good! I wish I had went with those as mine kinda suck.

Also, the eyeball arms, how much of a difference over stock or poly bushings do those make?

I'm not sure yet. I have to try them out.
