First off, I would like to say that the BMR 15" wheel kit is a very nice kit. Lots of adjustment. Add in the Strange Coilovers, Pfadt Subframe Bushings/Motor Mounts, Wilwood Drag brakes, it makes for an excellent combination.

Did a sweep of ride height with driver before aligning of course, and we'll be working with the coilover adjustments track-side also. We were able to get it aligned with actually 0* degrees of camber in the rear, which as a lot of people know is great for a drag car but hard to achieve with our suspension setups. Just a hair of toe-in in the front.

Wow! Looks real awesome Matt.

AWESOME MATT!!! Glade you had a chance to help Mike out. I can't wait to see it at the track.

Working with Mike yesterday was a pleasure for us. An informed customer, with great racing history makes it easy to dial in his race car.

Now starts the process of dialing in the suspension track-side, we are in the ballpark now just have to finish off dialing it all in.

Likewise Matt, your experience with the IRS cars has improved my confidence that I can make my goal racing the LSx 5th Gen. next year. The BMR 15" Drag Race kit is awesome the PFADT lugs are perfect with the PFADT solid bushings.

I am glad everything went smoothly for guys with the BMR 15" wheel kit. I can't wait to see you guys get the car to the track so we can see what it can really do. I know Mike has been waiting a long time to get to this project finished up and get it to the track.

If there is any way we can help you guys out (Mike or Matt @ FSP) let me know.

Not yet Mike... My plan was for now to get Bad Dad over to the track, make some shakedown runs as-is. Ride height is swept already with driver weight in car of course. I'd like to get some runs down track-side with making some shock adjustments, and then we can go forward with corner balancing if necessary at that point. I want to see what shock travel, etc. we have at the track with video and then go from there on the next steps. Plus the car is on low boost for now so it won't hit the tires as hard. Like always, it's a work in progress good thing is that it is forward progress.

We'll see if the weather holds out for us we're looking at hitting BMP this Sunday.
