What are the other options? I was only aware of the hyperdrive bulkheads, so I am just curious.

I believe On-Point makes a set of bulkheads as well...

Anybody have tips/advice to reduce tire coning? I am using an old-school front-end, no shims. I love the way the car drives, but the tire coning has me a little concerned. Should I just suck it up and deal...?

So far I love this car. Need to order a new crossbrace though, I might have been pushing a little bit too hard in practice on Saturday...whoops.

Old-school front end, .20 springs.
20k damper tube lube.
Stock side springs (.22? the ones that came in the kit). 2 turns of preload.
40wt center shock, blue ae spring, roughly 1.5mm pod droop.

there was a setup written in sharpie on the inside lid of the kit box when it arrived, and I have pretty much been going off of that.

EDIT: Joel, do you have the WGT3 tweak plate/crossbraces in stock? I couldn't find them in the online store when I briefly looked yesterday... Also, I made a couple orders about a week ago, any idea when they might ship?

Camber/Caster? Which way is it coning. I'm assuming smaller on the inner part of the tire.

Stock springs should be .020 on both our 12th and 10th. (Easier for Bob not to mess up) They are more silver in color than any of the other side springs which usually have a copper/gold hue depending on which.

There should be some tweak braces at the shop. It's been a while since I've looked. For a few generations of cars now really haven't sold carbon individually. But since dealing with Japan it was easier making a spreadsheet with EVERY part. It's on there. #1771 World GT3 Tweak Brace. Email Bruce since it is not on the site yet.([email protected]) I will call him when I get a chance to remind him. Likely stuff going out Wednesday morning. Not sure on prior orders, I've been super busy with the remainder of the semester at school.

No need to worry about the tires coning, I have solved that problem.

Front tires even lasted longer than they did on my 10R5, this car is so efficient
Unbelievable, can't believe I was missing out on this for so long

Props to Bruce @ SM for a job well done

Hi Dave,

Great job! Congrats.

Your car prep is top notch also.

Sorry I haven't been on this thread that much. We had a Godzilla size Japanese order to take care of. Along with Spring in New England, (and all the yard work that goes with it), we've been flat out.

Lots of great posts. Keep them coming.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Take care.-Bruce
