    Stuck the axle and rear tires back in yesterday for final ride height numbers. Rear coil overs on the way.

    Big steps! I'm excited for you at how close you are getting.

    Is that actual ride height? When the time comes I would start with a much lower IC with your setup.

    Rear may come down some but its pretty darn close.

    I have a baseline IC in the puter but wont have a really good place to start till i can scale it. Its pretty light and low so you may be right. Lots of tuning passes.

    I built my toe in adjuster last night and today at noon. Of course there will be jamb nuts on there yet.

    I was just judging by your bar angles, no computer necessary to get closer than that.

    What anti-roll setup you using for the rear suspension?

    Got a few things sorted out today.

    Going to do data logging direct to laptop.

    LED headlights in for the return road.

    Rear shocks are in.

    Gas pedal hanging and brake pedal stop is pretty much done.

    Hood arrived and was returned and now the right hood has arrived. Mistakes were made however, glasstek took care of it and got the correct hood to me.

    Hood is approx. 5" to long which is great! width is very close.
