Love the new additions and the exhaust clip, Just picked up GoPro for some entertainment when the car arrives. Went down to Bowling Green last weekend to hike Mammoth Cave, but saw the NCM Motorsport park on the way out there. I guess they just repaved the track and from the outside looks super nice. I am tossing the idea of doing HPDE this year or waiting until early next year after some suspension pieces.

Your car is coming along nicely. Have you noticed any handling differences with those wheels on having +38 offset? A slight increase with bounciness?

I had no idea this existed... I feel like an idiot because after looking it up it looks awesome. Thanks for mentioning it because I had been thinking about going up to Mid-Ohio but this is much closer.

Thanks. Honestly, no. I have not noticed any difference in the way it takes bumps so far, but I am no handling expert. The biggest difference I can feel is it does seem to have a heavier feel on turn in. More noticeable on low speeds when there is more resistance. I assume this is due to having a wider wheel and tire than before. Had a similar feel when I went from stock to 25mm spacers. Just a slightly heavier feel, but not in any way bad (at least to me).

Great Build! Keep up the good work! RCE Yellow springs would take you a long way for cheap.

Ok. When I made the switch to a wider wheels with +38 offset. I noticed an increase in bumpiness. It could be just me. But increased scrub radius does that with heavy steering feel at low speed.

I look forward to your progression with your car.

I'm running Method MR502s for my winter set and can relate to what you're describing. The offset is +38, as well. Heavier feeling when turning and maybe not as precise as on the stock wheel? I dunno, it's hard to explain. But clearance hasn't been an issue, either. I think it's right on the cusp, however....lol. Nice build by the way. I'm Stage 1 but would eventually like to go 2 one day. How are your data logs looking?
