New anti squat brackets/Stronger and with better adjust-ability.
My BMR brackets only had two settings for anti squat. "Not enough" and "Too Much".
The 3 holes are closer together so you can better dial things in.
Worth the effort in my opinion.

I noticed that I used to have a bigger "7".
I was young and virile then. :(
These days my "7" is not so big. So my Dr. suggested I use "Number Stretcher" and now through the magic of technology I have managed to increase the size of my "7" and I'm pretty happy about that.
Not only that, but "She's" satisfied as well. And that, I think is a good thing :)
Hoo-Rah.

I will miss my APEX wheels for sure, but by the time they committed to making 11's I had already ordered flares and committed myself to the 12's. Plus, it only took 3 weeks to get custom wheels and APEX still doesn't have the 11's and wont for some time yet. I feel bad about it...I really do, but a man's gotta do what a Man's gotta do. I wish Apex was more aggressive in the market....if they do decide to make 12's I'll be first in line for them.
