    Went for 1st alignment. Height is set (for now). Toe was way off. Going to skip camber bolts for now and chose handling over wear. I'm maxed out anyway so I'd need to slot if I want any more positive movement.
    One front BC lower collar came a bit loose, but I figured it would need check after some miles

    Tire wear front. Road wasnt that dirty, so it may be slightly farther out. I just figured I'd shoot it

    That looks great in the back to me. I'm way more off than that. Handling over wear

    My last kooks wore out crazy fast from the camber. My current yokos are like new.

    I'll have to google what slotting is lol

    I don't remember the numbers but front was near perfect. I probably threw the sheet away while walking out of shop Typical moron. They just cranked the rears as far as it would go of course and I'm thinking the result was 3.5. Your rear looks I don't see many wear issues at all on your ride

    & I can rotate :good:
    Slotting is done to subframe for rear SPC camber kit. Supposed to give you an additional +/- 3.0
    Can U use?
    I also have a rare set of Jefferson bolts that will hold a rear GT Spec bar once the kit is on. Doesnt look like I'll need it. Not low enough

    Really fun day & car did very well. Unfortunately the Gopro kinda failed me on big course & didnt capture, but I think there's some footage of M3 chasing & overtaking me. Might turn up later

    I guess you could look at it that way. I only have 38K on it. I've done one drain & fill, & recently did a complete flush. Forward gears are great . . reverse is taking up to 20+ seconds to engage when it's warm/hot. Cold it goes in without wait. I'm just driving it till it cant go reverse anymore, & then I'll need some sort of fix. Likely reverse piston is failing. I hope it's not a complete rebuild
