New alignment settings... take a look at how bad the front camber was The rear toe was not much better. However this was after i had dropped my front subframe and pulled all the suspension arms to replace the bushings and installed new toe links.





Also got the rear fenders rolled with help from Scrub.





Should clear my 18x10 +20 rears.

Nice job with the fender roller. Did you have any problem with paint cracking? I might have to shoot Dan a message see about borrowing that, as you saw the horrible rubbing I was getting on the drivers side

The driver side went great, but we had issues with the passenger side. That whole quarter panel had been replaced before and the spot welds would not cooperate... one of them actually split causing a noticeable crack on the outside. It is not too bad though. I plan to have them flared slightly by a body shop over the winter.


Anyway, my Wedssports finally arrived!!!


I will be getting them mounted on Friday and you can be sure that there will be plenty of pics


Until then, here are some shots I took after a fresh washing to get rid of all the dirt from DGRR:

It comes with a Mocal thermostat, and all (bling bling) Mocal fittings to mate to a pair of fancy Setrab oil coolers. I really love the mocal fittings because they are black/grey unlike the ugly (IMO) red/blue fittings.

I used the same fittings and hose for my fuel system as well (but in -6).
I used to like the SS lines, then I tried to re-use some of the re-useable fittings and was reminded harshly why use marine guys don't mix SS and AL.... I've since redone everything with the Nomex stuff. Much easier to use, more attractive in my opinion, and lighter, etc etc etc... I'm actually about to test their limits in a vacuum situation.

Where are you finding black/grey fittings? I might not want to know becuase I may have to re-redo them all

I remember you showing me that line. I thought you might have done some more rolling after DGRR.

Any idea if this event has noise restrictions? I know Lime Rock does that, but sometimes they lift the restriction. My car should be fine, but Dan's car is probably too loud with the open wastegates.

Shoot Dan a PM about the fittings. They use them in the Sakebomb kits and he gets extras for me when I need them.

I know CART follows the good neighbor policy so Dan's open wastegates probably wouldn't fly. Your car would be fine though. CART does bring their own sound monitoring shit, lemme shoot them a PM and see what thier noise limits are for LimeRock. Does Dan know how loud his car is in SPL?

Cool! THanks.... I'll shoot him a PM about the fittings

Wheels look great man. Fitment is spot on. Are you getting any rubbing at all?

Thanks. It rubs on the passenger rear slightly when I hit bumps. Turns out it is because I did not roll enough of the lip. I need to extend the roll from the 1:00 position to the 2:00 position.
