He posted the image previously. He is running BMR springs, with Steeda rear adjustable camber arms.

I am just saying what he said in his post. I do agree it seems too close to drive. I had airlift on my last car, I am very familiar with it. I think I need to text him now lol.

It is all static on the BMR Springs. These are the 3/4” drop setup and it is too low for my needs. Looks great hard parked, but I will be swapping over to the 1/4” drop setup soon. Pushing for a progressive rate spring too.

I wasn't going to say anything, but I agree with your assessment.

Been super impressed with the Racing Brake carbon ceramics on the GT500. The weight reduction, no dust, no noise, initial bite, modulation, and pedal feel are all fantastic. They get even better with heat which is cool.

Recently got to test fit their RB6XL caliper that is In production for the GT500. Cool thing about having the car early is you can help with development and advocate for changes owners might want. I really wanted this to fit under a 19” wheel, but it’s too damn close.

Sick part about the caliper is that it’s lighter than OEM. Makes pad changes possible from the top so you don’t have to remove the body. OEM caliper piston sizing. It also has notched pistons for heat dissipation. Here are a couple pics of the prototype.

Will be an excellent compliment to the carbon ceramics now, so curious to see what pricing and all looks like when completed

T - do the ARP nuts from the caliper stud kit fit inside the bores I see?

Call you tomorrow brother. We are on for next week, and shooting for a Thursday meetup/swap in case we have any issues and need parts Friday.

Hoping I can pick up and deliver your pads to you while I am on the way.

I meant to talk to you about it. The stud fits, but the nut is too big. If, and likely when, I end up installing these we can come up with a solution. Which is likely just a smaller nut...

Hard to tell from a skew on a photo but my initial reaction was that the counterbore diameter needs to increase. I'd want more available surface area for the nut than what I see. Makes me wonder if whoever drew up the caliper looked at available nut OD's or not.
