Just got a update and a refund from Kohr Motorsports. The ABS unit #M-2353-CA is now out of stock and looks to be on National backorder. In other words, It's in the black hole of parts supply.

First time at Willow Spring in 30 years. Trying a new chassis setup for the first time. Managed a best lap time of the day of 1:23.4 in session 3. Fuel pressure regulator went bad in session 4 so I parked it. Had a track off in this session as you will see. New pads and rotors not up to the late braking. Was not a issue after the first session. I also had my review mirror fall off and land inside the drivers door in session 2. That will be replaced with a race mirror. All in all though, it was a very good day, had lots of fun. I can't wait to do all again.

So how did you like the K Link? Are you running the recommended #600 rear springs?
What are your front springs?

The K-link has a ton of rear grip. I'm running 650lbs front and rear. It pushed a bit so I was unable to drive it the way I wanted. To be fair, I don't have the front grip kit on yet. so entry and mid corner was a tad slow, The power I could but down on exit over came that issue. When it's all done, I think it should be very well balanced, I was told before hand that it was going to push. They where right but was still drivable.
