5 Forgelines wheels I got at a really really great price. ($1500) There is a slight bend in two of the rims but they are fixable.
Here is the latest update on the Mustang. The suspension is being freshened up in anticipation for the new track season. Sadly due to the surge in cases, most of the upcoming track days have been cancelled. The front sway bar bushing needed to be replaced as it was torn. Likewise, the front caliper was also leaking at the caliper seals so I ordered new seals from AP Racing. I also managed to snag 3 sets of 305/30/19 Bridgestone Potenza RE71Rs as they are now discontinued. I wanted to make sure I am on the same set of tires so I can track my progress in the data and to ensure variation is as little as possible.
Here are the parts being installed:
Cortex Racing Adjustable Anti Roll Bar Link Front
Cortex Racing Adjustable Anti Roll Bar Link Rear
Cortex Racing Front and Rear Monoball Spherical Bushings for the control arms
Cortex Racing Bump Steer Kit
Cortex Racing Rear Toe Links
BMR On-Car Adjustable Camber Links
Ferodo DS1.11 pads front
OEM pads and rotors rear
The AP Racing rotors have a ton of mileage on them and many track days. They are still going strong. Starting thickness is 36mm, minimum thickness is 32mm. They are still at 36mm. They are to be replaced only if there is a crack from the edge and/or if the J hook is faded. The crazing (micro cracks) are normal on them.
And here are some pics of the 305/30/19 RE71Rs that I will be running on all four corners. They are now discontinued. I purchased three sets to play with lol
They are wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiddddddddeeeeeeeee:
Here is a good view of the rear diffuser on my GT from Verus engineering:
Here are some pictures of the GT on the ground. It is so aggressive with the negative camber.
