Hey all,
Latest projects,  coils spacers machined to 8.5mm to get desired ride height,  third photo is a shock attachment block to better prevent the shock bolt that previously bent slightly!
Cheers Phil.

If you've never buggered anything you've never done anything!
But if you've buggered a lot maybe you're not very good at it!

Two for one is good but four for two is better!

Hey all,
I’ve taken my car for a few drives since my modifications and the front ride height has settled to 25” to the wheel aches and looks great, no scrapes.
In normal driving around town I can’t tell if there is any improvement in the Shelby drop or the chassis connectors.
The Shelby drop camber geometry improvements may have helped my wide tyres from rubbing!
You may notice it on fast flowing bumpy corners or hard cornering.
We’ve got a brilliant track in Mount Panorama but your mad going fast on it, Police patrol it 24/7.
It did go around the cutting today very nicely though and not scraping through the esses.
But one thing you will notice in the long term is no paint cracking, apparently you get bad cracking at the A pillars at the top of the windscreen if you drive them hard and the body starts flexing!
For what it’s worth I think both jobs are well worth the work involved!
Cheers Phil.
