    I just measured the front splitter clearance. We have 5" at the lowest point. I couldn't imagine hitting this in any driveway. Maybe I'm just used to driving lowered cars. My M3 had 3.75" of front splitter clearance and GT3 has a little over 4." Neither have been a problem. You just can't come rolling in at right angles.

    The X factor in clearance is the distance from the wheels to the front of the car. Im guessing that distance is larger on the mustang then the M3. So the M3 can be lower the mustang without bottoming out on driveways and bad roads. I cant find any measurements but I bottom out from time to time now getting in and out of driveways but NYC roads are pretty bad for that.

    That's exciting! I wrote to them a couple weeks ago to inquire but never heard anything. Looks like a whole new strut though they are releasing for the GT350 based on their FB post. Not just springs and tuning. So we will have to see ...

    I talked to DSC Sport last week ...

    They are testing on the R now and hope to have a solution generally available for both the R and regular GT350 in the next few months. They will have the controller box option for those looking to maximize what they can get out of their OEM MR dampers or for folks like me and others that want to potentially lower the car a bit and even further enhance the handling for the track they will have their controller with Tractive's electronic dampers and Swift springs.

    Any update? As awesome as the R is it's a tad shocking Ford couldn't get the wheel gap right after all of the work they did on the suspension. Even middle priced sedans from Europe are perfect...
