New front lip design by Instagram user @dutchswift. HDPE so it's strong and flexible. Looks and fits great too!

Do you mind posting a full shot of your trunk setup? I have been looking at air, but also want to keep the spare and as much room as possible.

Overall impression, Very nice ride.
I was surprised, you're not running a catch can?

So this year my goal is to make the car as much fun as possible. Funny, right? But for real, I want the car to be the best of both worlds, show and go. I'm planning some track time around the area for this summer, so upgrading my clutch and my brakes are taking first priority.

This is what I've decided to go with.

Clutch:
Southbend stage 2 daily
Usp Motorsports stainless clutch line
Motul gear 300 trans fluid

Brakes:
Stoptech slotted rotors F+R
Motul RBF 600 fluid
UroTuning stainless brake lines

The car will be getting tracked on air ride. But I will be running some sort of high performance street tire in place of the rotiforms.

did you go to the SMF with the new clutch?
if so, do you have any chatter ?
car looks great! I also put the slotted stoptechs on my R

did yo have to get an alignment after the clutch job (from dropping the sub-frame)?

No chatter on this. It's the southbend stage 2 daily with single mass. I'm actually getting an alignment as I type his. But also because of reinstalling my air ride.

I think it was like $250? But it's a great design and very durable.
