Completed MVP track time yesterday @ Road America. Wow what a turn out. Had to be 25 GT3's there. Crazy.

Car preformed beautify. First tire driving on slicks. Wow do they inspire confidence in the car. Shout out to Shaun for building this wicked machine. Set my personal best! 2:48 with tons of room for improvement. Hoping to be in the Mid 2:30 in June.PXL_20220514_183042247.jpgPXL_20220515_133848690.jpg

Not a big deal, but I think your winglets are oriented incorrectly. The edge you've got facing the rear should be facing the front of the car. You could swap them from one side to the other and that should fix it.

Swapped them and they do look better. Thank you!

S550 6pot upgrade done. Had to order new Russell lines to make them fit. Going to be trying GLOC 12 front and rear. Going with both the same all around to try and stop the nose dive I was getting on my ST47 and 4 pot

Boy are they HUGE! Seems to fit on my 18" wheels, they just need a spacer.

Nice brake upgrade- you’ll love them. Car looks great.
Those 18x11 apex wheels fit? There’s a guy local on Facebook selling a set with tires for $1500 but I wasn’t sure if they’d clear my same setup

According to Apex they do yeah, with a spacer though keep in mind.
