What a difference the M030 makes on a 71k mile car

All those little jitters in the road that were transferred into the cabin are now absorbed by the car. The car feels much more planted and secure even on the street. The bigger rear say bar has flattened corner exits and allowed more wheel spin. The ride quality is dramatically better and I'm looking forward to some track time next weekend.

I also replaced the bump stops and strut bearings. The bump stops were shot but the bearings could have been cleaned and re-lubed with no problem.

It will be interesting to see where the springs settle, but the M030's are decidedly shorter than the stock springs.

If you're thinking about, don't hesitate.

You are killing me Mike! I've thought about the upgrade as well, was wondering if it would be worth it. Way too much competition for limited funds What track are you going too? Kenny and I had a great time at Eagle's Canyon last weekend

Hi Bruce, I thought that ECR was open next weekend but turns out to be the following 3/16.

PCA has an event this weekend at Cresson but that's out for me.
They're doing COTA in May (I think) so I need to find a way to get on that list!
I'll be able to compare some before M030 and after lap times there.
