Thanks!! I just stumbled across this site for the first time yesterday, so I figured I would join up.Starting to get some more SN95 profiles/build threads in here... very cool! Hope to see some track day recaps and build progress from your journey.
The Apex wheels look really good, but they are about double the price of the S350s, which is what pushes me toward those. Ballin on a budget especially with revamping the suspension setup so much. Im hoping to have the suspension done by early next year before AutoX and track days really get going, so I will already be eating a lot of Ramen noodles with the plan I have now lol.Welcome from the Ozark State and I would sure look into the Apex Rims over the SVEs , but really like your idea of getting some bigger rubber. Running 315/18 BFG gforce R1Ss on my Boss and am liking their longevity compared to the Hoosiers. Love the Hoosiers, but I was going through them too quickly and though they heat up a bit slower they stay more consistent long races..............about 250-300 cheaper for a full set also.
Great info! I had read about the event somewhere, but didn't know much about it. I will have to see if I can swing it. I mentioned going on a Tunica casino trip and hitting the NASCAR race at Talladega on Sunday, October 4th to my dad and brother just last weekend. They seemed interested, but you never know.
I'll keep that in mind...I do want wheels that can take some track abuse, so if others have been down that road before, I'll steer clear of the SVE wheels. Rather do it right than do it twice, I guess.Many of us have had the S350s, but the hub centric Apex rims fit a ton better. Easy to go square with spacers up front, and then rotate those donuts ------ looking to save you money in the long run.
Nothing wrong with Ramen whatsoever, it just gets old! And it's unhealthy! I'm only 3 years removed from living in the college dorms and a diet consisting solely of cafe food, Ramen noodles, and beer got me fat. Trying to eat my veggies now and scrub some off so I can go fasterWhat's wrong with Ramen, we have all eaten those noodles , just a sign of more important items gear heads spend money on ha, ha.
Maybe I can convince them to come and bring the GT. In my humble and broke opinion, they ought to be taking that to every track possible.Bring them along, or have them drive up in another Mustang , and the whole family can get some track time instead of watching some one else on track.
Did I mention the partying ---- there were some years we put the Talledega infield to shame, ha.
You don't even have that much to scrub as you're, what 3100# in that SN-95? That puts you around an E46 BMW, and toss and remove a thing here and there and you're probably down to 2800.Nothing wrong with Ramen whatsoever, it just gets old! And it's unhealthy!

Yeah, except when I went into my senior year of high school, I weighed 197 (I wrestled and walked my weight). When I went to college, I was 220. Now I'm 372...My car might not weigh a lot, but I more than make up for it. I meant eat my veggies literally!You don't even have that much to scrub as you're, what 3100# in that SN-95?

The MM stuff should help a bit. I'm just as interested in balancing the car out as I am total weight for AutoX purposes. They say the K Member and coilover kit will take 36# off the nose. AC is gone, condenser, compressor, lines, etc. I'm gonna set the engine back 1" on the new K. K and MM control arms put the wheels 1.5" forward. Etc.
