Chris, when you go to install your Plasma's, hard wire them in. Don't cut the wires from the plasmas to the connector. Just cut and hard wire the wires after that which make them the full time "on" DRL's. ....if that makes sense. I think I need to take pix..hold up, I think I have one.

Long story short, there's a single wire with a wire tap at each end. It's supposed to connect between either the pos or neg (can't remember) from the car to the bulb socket (where the plasma plugs in) and between the pos or neg between the car and the side marker light. They give you these two T-Taps that just go in line. Sure, might be kind of fast and easy to just tap them in there. But, many of us have had the "blinking on and off"" DRL's that have been driving us nuts.

The solution? Cut out the T-Taps. Hard wire. Let's see if I have that pix...

wow....big pic...lol

No I don't have the camber bolts, but they did time the bushes. at least they said they did.

Car feels balanced, not springy at all. so I'm guessing they did time them.
Get the rear negative camber reduced as far as you can with the OE adjusters. If that doesn't do it we go with Pedders Extended Range Eccentrics. BTW, reducing negative rear camber also reduces understeer. Your car will be better on the strip and in the twisties.

Forgeline 19x10.5s on RE11 305/30/19s. The setup is sick. It even works on Challengers -- with the right offset. These are 85% runs at best during our shakedown day at VIR.





Of course the top performing of the three (Camaro, Challenger & Mustang) is...





































What we have worked out with our friends at Forgeline is more than wheel offset for clearance. We even the front and rear track for a square track and a square tire setup.

Almost, ask for the Pedders setup. Tell the owner Dave Schardt that Pete sent you

You already have daily drive wheels. These are your business wheels GA3



When you order, make sure the include lightening pockets in the back of the hubs. Every ounce counts.
