WAYyyy more grip. 1st gear sticks now and I can throttle out of sharper turns in 2nd without throwing the ass way out."

Thanks Artemis. Actually Fundahl was the only one who mentioned the "stupid little metal tab" but must be an issue on all cars I assume.

It is always good to ask people like Matt these specific questions since they are pushing the car and its set up more than most of us and has a direct experience about the car's change of behaviour after certain chassis mods.
