I had run into problems with my pod droop adjuster. It just wasnt strong enough. I may make a new lower spring perch that is knurled so you can adjust your pod droop by just spinning the lower perch with your fingers. This is what we have for our DB10R and it is extremely fast and requires no tools.
I am a little concerned with putting alot of time into making a chassis that fits the new AE suspension. It looks extremely heavy compared to our existing front end. A team driver sent me the antenna/shock mount from the R5 and i was blown away with how heavy it was. I dont want to add any weight to the car unless there is a benefit from it. So far i have not seen anything from the R5 that is an improvement over what is out there. Just the same stuff in different form. The older AE antenna/shock mount is adjusted just as quickly if not more quickly than there new one yet is weighs 5 times less. I think the new front end will be the same way. I will buy one just to make sure.
