I did add the SVE wheels, 19x9.5 square. Originals were 20" staggered and not suitable for the track.

You guys are too kind . . . made me go out and spend some more $$

Just added brake cooling backing plates, etc. and a J&B panhard bar chassis brace.

Oh yea . . . everyone needs one of these:

Eibach Camber Bolts added. Shop was able to squeeze out -2.0 of camber.
New Nankang AR-1s mounted to the SVE wheels in prep for September VIR trip.
It will be nice to have a little bit of grip compared to the overwhelmed 280tw Advan Apex donuts.
