Is it possible to use the thinner (0.1") plate instead of the (0.25") plate to get the 0.15" lower than original stock height (know it's not much but will typically take anything I can get)?

You mentioned in one of your previous posts that "We could have gone with the thinner plate and the car would have been lower by 0.15" than stock." Will this be an available option or do you think it would be problematic?

We'll have the test car back in the shop next week and will see if there are any issues with the thin plates. We mocked them up in the car for measurements, but didn't run the plate through it's full motion to make sure it clears the curve of the sheetmetal when using the thin plate.

Great. Thanks. I'll be interested to hear how that option works. I may be interested in that alternative.

Any potential for a group buy or pre-order? Looks like you have some pretty good interest. Really appreciate the care you are taking to get this right.

Quick update on the performance of the plates. They have been excellent. Thus far, no noises , no pop, clicks or creaks. I was able to do one session on track recently (I had some brake pad issues which limited me getting to the track . I also attended an autocross last weekend. Wow slaloms are now MUCH easier. On track I already noticed i have to adapt to move my hands a little less when steering because less effort is needed.

I am absolutely loving these.
I can't report on tire wear really yet because I put on Hankooks rs3s on my track wheels and wear is minimal on street tires compared to race tires.

Great update as usual from "M3 Adjuster".

Looking to install a set of these on HP's 1M in the very near future.

We have made one tweek to the original design to more securely hold the OEM rubber isolator. A short production run is being made now. I'll let everyone know when they are available.

Any chance of getting this month? I have an event at the end of Sept and I'd love to get them installed by then - otherwise it will be another tire shredding event!

The machined parts should arrive very soon and we will have them anodized and THEN they will be available.

Got them today and they look fantastic! MUCH more solid and beefy than the Ground Control set which bent within a day. They are beautifully engineered.
