did you achieve this weight distribution improvement by adding a sub box with two 12"s in the trunk?

My car is a cow, it weighs 3770lbs with a full tank and me inside it. Hey BJ AutoHaus guys, can you guys corner balance with me in the car ?? I weigh 200lbs so it's quite a bit of weight. Or just put 200lbs of weights on my drivers side whatever is safer.

thanks let me know
definitely!
we had someone with similar weight(to the owner) sit in the car when we did the blue STI

just a guess.

What suspension did you previously have that wasnt handling so well?

Are those the AST 5100s or 4100s?

The camber plates are made by Vorslag, same company that made the plate you see on the AST shocks. They have huge bearings to withstand load.

I'm definitely happy with the setup, the shocks provide better-than-stock comfort, but crazy performance when pushed. I also have a set of RCE sway bars that was put in by Jason at Autohaus.

Thanks Rich and Jason and the rest of the ppl at Autohaus. I'd recommend them.

Artz
thanks for your kind words Art,
i'm glad you're happy with the set up.

they're the 4100's

i previously had the H&R springs/ Koni adjustables set up,
they don't even compare to the ASTs performance wise

just curious what spring rates are you running for the 4100s?

you also got the AST reinforced shock mounts?

those are the new revised version of the Vorshlag camber plates with the red anodizing correct? looks a lot better than the ones I have without the anodizing...

Did you come out to any UBC events this year? I've seen a similar M3 with that motor before and I'm wondering if it's the same car.
