Nice! Of all your mods, which are the best improvements for the track?

I'll bet you he says JRZ then LSD.

That body roll looks more controlled with 21/22 settings.

turugara is right. Tires, good dampers, alignment, LSD, THEN springs as a matter of fact. I will have another writeup on my JRZs with advanced thoughts - here are initial thoughts:
http://e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=712517
Tires first though. Oh, and driver's ed before anything.

The body roll is controlled well with the higher settings. I will write more later but the higher stiffness settings are equivalent to "less movement" settings. Still absolutely no harshness on 22/24 (which is what I used the 2nd day) on the street. Amazing.

Are you 22/24 all around? Try 22/24f, 24/24r, or some variation of slight stagger.

They're the Performance wheels. Lighter than standard 19s for sure, but I don't know the exact weight - in the lower 20 lb range somewhere.

I can answer that. It looks great, but probably doesn't add as much as...


THIS FRONT LIP that he's thinking of getting and will probably get soon-ish.

FYI

Yodaime!

It's a fantastic piece ... I doubt it does anything functional but it makes the front end look cleaner and more aggressive. 100% CF. Here's my DIY:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=586654
It doesn't come off at 140MPH. Once I get another 40-50HP I will test it at 150MPH.

Signing me up already!? Steve ^ is one of the few that competes with me mod-wise ('because racecar' mods, that is) hence I get hassled. I'll be waiting for the write-up.

Sir you've already been signed up for way more than you know of.

I'd break it all to you but your bank account would have a heart attack.
