  1. FRTP sway bar setup

    I've struggled with this paradigm for some time, mainly my refusal to mount a front bar with the reasoning of it adding understeer. I'm sure that at certain point it does, but so far (BMR front on middle and 350R rear bar) it hasn't. Seems like there is a balance to be achieved with 2 effects...
  2. Best caster camber plates

    Ideally you want an independent caster/camber adjustment. The cheapest one (that I've found) with this feature is the J&M, which I've bought but haven't installed. Other options are the ground control and vorshlag, I'm pretty sure they're the bee's knees but at great cost.
  3. 2017 Mustang Gt Handling Mods

    I would say that there are a lot of "common denominator" upgrades you could do, irrespective of dig, track, or street, for instance the PP braces, CB005, LCA & toe bearing, that are relatively harmless, low cost, and will provide a significant overall benefit. Since you mentioned M cars and...
  4. BMR Performance vs. Handling Springs

    Go check the "GT350R Springs for GT (high rate, minimum lowering)" thread...there is a lot of useful nuggets there. In a nutshell, I would do the handling springs with FRPP track dampers as a few other forum members have done. It's important to replace the dampers to something more appropriate...
  5. GT350R Springs for GT (high rate, minimum lowering)

    @BmacIL and @Bluemustang have said most of it. The tuning I refer to is to mainly set the camber of the front and rear to adjust the neutral balance of the car (when cornering and not accelerating or braking). With everything else being equal and your caster and toe being already decided, you...
  6. GT350R Springs for GT (high rate, minimum lowering)

    There is no shame in mixing spring brands and using spacers. With the rate difference being negligible, it's up to you to decide on the right look with choosing the drop. The small difference in front roll center with the R spring vs the BMR is also not a lot, as you can tune balance with other...
  7. Paint correction and ceramic coating installers

    I know a shop on Cypress, PM me if you are still interested.
  8. FP M-18000-F red locktite??

    I read the installation instructions PDF when I did mine, it doesn't exactly specify which bolt requires it. I never used it, just torque to the spec on the PDF. If I remember right, the only place I put Loctite was on the MGW linkage bolt, for obvious reasons.
  9. M6G Suspension Nirvana

    Thanks for pointing out that review, has just the right objective data.
  10. M6G Suspension Nirvana

    I sort of assumed that the s007a would be in the middle based on threadwear and price. If dry grip is within like 10-15% of a re71r and it's acceptable on rain, I think it's well worth it. It's just weird that there are almost no reviews/tests of the s007a. On the other side, indy500 cost like...
  11. M6G Suspension Nirvana

    This is good news. I haven't seen much reviews on the s007a, I even asked the local Firestone store and nope, nothing. On par or better than MPSS on rain is a good place to be. After a precarious drive from the track to home on my re71r, I am considering swapping to a less aggressive but more...
  12. M6G Suspension Nirvana

    Thanks a lot @BmacIL ! I've been almost forgotten by the forum...or maybe it's the other way around:like: Hey @H1shawn1, great write up! Saw this thread mentioned in our FB group, good stuff. If you don't mind, who are you using for alignment and bumpsteer setup? I haven't found a reliable and...
  13. 2017 GT PP bang for buck slight lowering recommendations?

    The LCA bearings does bring the true spring/damper rate into perspective...I would imagine the same to be for the bearings at the front. There are other benefits like the alignment and a reduction of unwanted toe in under certain conditions. Back then I wasn't interested in autocross or track, I...
  14. 2017 GT PP bang for buck slight lowering recommendations?

    Well, back then in 2016 there wasn't all of this info around. We barely knew that the GT350 springs would fit, let alone finding dampers that would match, and how it'll behave as a system. There were calculations being done, assumptions made, and tradeoffs considered. Me being me, I wouldn't buy...
  15. More suspension issue......

    Something is wrong...front should be about -1.5 camber without bolts/plates. I like the rear to be slightly less negative than the front, about 0.3-0.5 less. Rear toe in 0.1 each side and 0 toe front.
  16. More suspension issue......

    I would look at the subframe to see if it's aligned/centered first, then revisit the alignment. If getting within spec is getting green on the machine, you could be far off from an optimal alignment. Can you post the before/after alignment sheet?
  17. 2017 GT PP bang for buck slight lowering recommendations?

    Been lurking for like 2 years without logging in, about time. I'm probably the first to do the BMR/GT350R/FRPP setup, at least on this forum. A few observations: 1) I would listen to BmacIL, we have consulted back and forth for months to come up with the setup. Mistakes were made and lessons...
  18. GT VS GT PP1

    I'd grab one optioned with Magneride and not PP, premium if you want the features or base if you don't care. In my opinion, for a pure daily driver, PP doesn't add much value, Magneride does.
  19. M-2300-MR vs non PP GT rear brakes

    Nope, they are basically the same thing.
