    That’s really good to hear and looking forward to it.

    I saw that you said 50% less but what IS the weight? Stock or yours.

    For the road course version, does it add any benefit aside weight reduction and clearance? Example increased rigidity.

    Yes, it will have additional gussets and plates. Furthermore, it will have the ability to make roll center and pick up point adjustments.

    For the road race version, will there be provisions for attaching belly pans / undercarriage panels? Expected msrp? Also, have you guys noticed any serious NVH increase during testing?

    We are still working on the pricing - more to come but it will be priced very competitively.

    Great question - I will have to see if Steeda Tech or if our R & D team has any insight.
