After adding Pedders Dual Bearing Camber Plates, Supercar Coilovers, 32mm 1LE Rear Balance Bar, Sub-Frame and Radius Bushes we still shaved 5 pounds off the curb weight.

If we had more time, we could have adjusted the ride heights a few mm and had the car corner weights PERFECT. When Glen is ready, we'll take a day and do exactly that.

Just curious, should you set up the weight distribution evenly with no one in the car, or would it help to set up the weight distribution with the primary driver sitting in the driver's seat?

If we are corner weighting the driver is in the car. The same is true for a track ready alignment.

Secondary driver is always better. Might be confusing, but it works.

Thermal Management. Please wrap them before you install them. Pull the sound cover off the plenum as well.
