Made an appointment for CorteX to install their watts link, JRI SA dampers w/offset, adjustable sway bar end links, drop ball joints and bump steer kit. They will do a performance alignment and get everything setup. Drop off date is Feb 3rd.
All done. Definitely rides stiffer but not harsh. No kidney belt required. ;) No doubt there's a lot more damping going on with the car and it moves very little. First track day with the new upgrades is March 14th @ ThunderHill.

FINALLY after one bad track day last summer, I ordered Maximum Motorsports Caster/Camber plates for the car. I know this will take care of the tread wear on the tires.

Just hate how I will have to adjust them back and forth between the track and any daily driving.

Really? It takes 5 mins.

Looking nice! Did you go with extreme grip street? I was dodging the tri-state winter potholes left and right driving her home the other day. Much firmer than stock but 'survivable' compliance on the street ! Couple loose fillings but kidneys intact too...

Yes mine's the street kit and I believe it's the first car with the JRi SA front dampers installed. I have 450/250 springs F/R. Filip told me the adjusters were set in about in the middle and that adjusting them will be very noticeable. Said they will go much softer from where it's at. I'll play with it next weekend. The roads here in NorCal are pretty smooth but you definitely know when you hit an expansion joint on the fwy! I was surprised how different the car felt just driving it home and I look forward to testing it out on track soon.

Looking forward to your impressions. I know we don't have the exact same stuff, but I would make adjustments only a click or two at a time. I agree about single clicks being very noticeable.

I'm still amazed by the increase in grip. Even just on street tires.

I had to go with the double adjustables front and rear to allow my wheels to fit. The singles in the rear we're touching the 11s. I've only glanced over the JRi indtructiins but I look forward to messing with the damping. They sure don't make the rears look easy to reach! Anybody have a specific tool they use? I'm thinking a small Allen key

You still have stock sway bars? FRPP lower control arms (poly bushings) and relo-brackets ?
