Also Hankooks grippin like a mfer! Fr try em out they're on the C63s and those things are tire killers. Ventus Evos
If you don't drive C63s as a daily, I would suggest the Nitto Nt05R. They are amazing. My little 3 liter makes almost 650 hp and over 500 tq and they don't spin much even with a manual. The auto would be even nicer to them.

C63 is in today for new inner outer tie rod ends , whiteline adjustable front sway bar links ,some fresh thrust arms, and an alignment so we can get the new wheels and tires on it.

Busy day, drove up to meet the fabricator and he's doing his research now for doing the upper trans mount and motor mount. Left the eco power parts spare box and oem box with him to start figuring out the cover.

Got the new boots on the C63 just out here new boot scootin.

also talked to the fabricator about the second and third parts of project Aero as well and if y'all are lucky he may make some for you. I'm planning on altering the front splitters and opening up the fenders front and back with vents and matching the airflow pattern from the altered front splitters with a new sideskirt extenders so we can get this big bitch nice and straight.

For anyone wondering about the effectiveness of the front splitters lemme tell you when they catch the wind at 80-90 boy howdy you feel it grab. (now we just need to control and allow flow through to keep us tracking straight)

Did some high speed driving and noticed an exceptional amount of lift once I go past 80mph, I'm hoping what I'm feeling is slop in the drive line and the new mounts will take care of all the walking around. I know it shouldn't be anything in the suspension unless the front control arms bushings are the culprit since those are the only piece that isn't OEM+ in stiffness and durability at least that's what the TTX stuff claims. We'll see how the trans and motor mount work and go from there.

Mine is HHR and new Ford replacement struts, Monroe shocks in the back, NEVER have any high speed issues, you did all that work with Mevo if I recall, wonder whats the issue...

I'm sure it's the driveline not being tight enough while under very high downforce causing the torque steer and the shakiness when coming on and off throttle. I talked to the fabricator the other day and he ordered up some Urethane to pour a new top trans mount in a really high shore hardness. If the material works out I could probably silicone mold and pressure cast bushings as we come up with spots to replace them. I did some reading up on aero and have plans for the sidesplitters to go along with the side skirts to help direct the air to hug the car at higher speeds. Gunna sail this bitch straight! Also confirmed the final drive ratio on the PP shouldn't effect the Helix clutch packs so hopefully this winter we're gunna get down on that pretty hard. Also I'm pretty resolved I'm gunna need to switch to nittos to put the power down. I only wish I could have a slightly less front biased awd lol this would be so much easier.
