I'm in the process of transferring bases. Hopefully Lackland. I'm in the process of applying for an officer slot.

You comfortable with dropping control arms and adjusting coils? I don't have proper tools to do so

I did my whole suspension and I had coils before and played with them quite a bit. I'm not crazy experienced but having done those two things I feel comfortable yes. I don't know what "Proper" means but I have tools. It doesn't take much to drop the control arms. The only tough part is putting the rear bolt back in and that's only if you do the outer. If you don't mind messing with the camber, you can do the inner. Might as well since you're changing the height anyway. Cause you'll need an alignment....

Yessir. You are correct. I need bigger wrenches and another jack to do this. And an alignment is definitely needed ASAP so I don't mind doing the inner.

When is a good time for us to tackle this?

And Zr1 was out but I can't remember the time...

I was slower than usual... Ran 12.99 and 13.1... 2.1 was best 60 foot...

Another interesting thing is they ran the Pro Tree, which I'd never done before, so definitely an adjustment for reaction times... Pro Tree goes Staged-->Yellow straight down--->Green.

Don't they run that way every midnight madness? I like regular test n tune nights better.

That may be the case, I had never been to one before.

Yes, regular test and tune is a much more chill atmosphere...

Anyone in SA with more experience than me willing to help out. I've got a set of VSRF DP's that need installing and will have the Eibach Pro Kit here within a week or so that will need to go in as well.

Well, I was out there....had my daughter so sitting next to my car was impossible. I was next to the E30 M3 and an E46 M3. Saw a couple E92 M3's out there. The white one had some cosmetic mods....

Damn....on stock specs?!?! That's suprising even with how fat they are. You could be just rubbing on the bumper ya know. I had to trim mine down to paper thin.

Did you add spacers? Or change anything else? I talked to Miles today and I have his number if you want to call him to do the roll...

Stock Msport 19x9's with 265/30/19 PSS with 10mm spacer. I'll roll it in my garage using my wooden bat.
I'd like to see where you trimmed. Did you do a full roll as well?

He rolled mine 3 times. And if you mean did he have to pull them...yes. Since you have stock offsets, a roll might be all you need.

I couldn't do the bat thing. It's not expensive...and he'll come to your house.

Anytime you want to stop by let me know...I'm almost always home.

I'll have my trunk on this week....gotta see that

Thanx...it was pretty dirty though, lol....I couldn't stay put with my daughter.

I'm pretty sure I saw you at some point. So you have that now and no 335 anymore?

Sweet my buddy just got a black z06 as well. It's a beast (I/H/E). What mods do you have and have you run it at the track?
