    Just buy the springs and shocks and get the gt350 frpp sway bars. You don't need the lock couplers.

    If anyone has this package on their car in West Central or North Central Florida, I would gladly come to your location and buy you some fuel for a short ride along.
    I would really like to feel the firmness before dropping coin.
    Thanks

    I have to assume that this Ford Track Pack kit, may be nearly equivalent to a PP2 package, with proper tires? Am I wrong?

    I'm interested in knowing this as well. I regret not getting the PP2 because when i ordered it wasn't available. I upgraded my suspension to the FP track kit and I'm happy with it so far, corners fantastic and very very comfortable on the street on the PP1 wheels. I will be doing a 305 square setup next year and see how it performs on the track

    I don't know that the Track Pack would be even close in comparison to the PP2 setup because of the Magnaride struts.

    does this kit add any noise to the ride, I am replacing some eibach coilovers with the FRTP because the Eibach's make so much creeking noises, plus I'm sure this is a better setup for the track anyway.

    Doesn't add any noise at all, it was the same as before, very quiet and comfortable. Rides great !

    To get it to the recommenced -1.5 camber specs for this kit was an aftermarket camber arm needed. I see that Steeda makes one.

    I would think the Track Pack is superior to the Magneride dampers. The general consensus seems to be the Magneride is not at its best on the track. I think the Magneride is more for compliance/ride quality. The monotube dampers in the Track Pack are tough to beat - and usable with a variety of spring choices.

    I used to love to visit NYC in my M3 with a Dinan cat-less exhaust. 6th Avenue at 8000 rpm dodging hacks can leave a lasting impression. The sound echos off the buildings.
    But back to the subject at hand. BMW's Electronic Damper Control (EDC) also was geared more to a good ride than to all out track performance. Many people preferred conventional suspension to the electronic for track days.

    I'll put in another vote for the track pack. Installed it last week on my Eco Premium and it's a night-and-day difference. Brake dive, launch squat and body roll are hugely reduced. The car is flat through corners.

    The worst thing for me was that once you got up over about 85 mph the car started to feel really floaty. It was a super loose, unsettled feeling that got worse the faster you went. After the track pack, that's completely gone. The car just feels planted and stable as fast as it's capable of going.

    I drive it daily, and I would say the suspension is noticeably firmer, but not what I would call 'stiff'. i.e. it's not harsh. I don't really find it any less comfortable than the stock setup. The stock suspension was definitely more toward 'plush', which results in the noticeable handling deficits already discussed.

    I managed to pick up the kit at a pretty good discount from another member here who decided not to install it. Honestly, for the price I can't see how you're gonna get a better result. Buy some of those sway-bar locks for 20 bucks while you're at it and call it a day.

    100% agree. Never used sway bar locks though. I paid retail and still think its harder to find a better setup for the price.
