  3. I am at 62k, only the coilovers and swaybar have been changed for me.
  4. I think you will be happy with the BC's, probably the best value. I didn't think the sway bar is that expensive for what it gains you. Plus if they are already pulling parts of the car apart, the install is better to do all at one time. Almost zero side to side roll on my MINI now, set to medium for the sway-bar.
  5. Sorry for the slow reply I am running BC Racing Coilovers on my F55 with a (i think) NM Racing rear sway bar. Love the setup. I had NM springs on factory shocks for a couple years. They were OK, but eventually the shocks started leaking and it was bouncy. The BC coils are great, and fully adjustable. I also ditched the run flats and run 2 sets of tires. Summer only tires on the factory rims, and a winter set on another set of rims. To complicate the question, on my BMW m235i I run Blistien B16's with electronic dampening control retained to the factory sport button. And they are AMAZING, but over 2x the price. So it can be true that you get what you pay for. Let me know if you have more questions.
  6. The rule is never trust a hydraulic or scissor jack with your life, always use a fixed jack-stand if you're going to be under the car. It might just be the photo angle, it's hard to tell how everything lines up. Assuming his head isn't actually under any part of the car, this is probably fine.
  7. Looks good!! Happy to follow you guys anytime Side note, do we need to have the jack stand discussion??? Never trust a jack Both cars had baths and are tucked away for the night
  8. Yup, Corey (lead) and I (Tom, sweeper) both have nice radios. 7 sub 21 CTCSS See everyone tomorrow. And I think the park is the only spot that we have for lunch.
  9. See everyone Saturday. I can probably sweep. Tiny chance I have to bail at some point, on call that day
  10. CANCELLED Important update, someone I was working with as recently as Thursday tested Covid positive Friday evening. For everyones health and safety around the holiday's I am going to cancel this run. Sorry for the late notice, I just found out a couple minutes ago.
  11. Update, this run is on. I think we have enough cars to make it fun. Any last minute additions are welcome
  12. Endpoint will be Harvest Gap, roughly at 12. That would put you about 20 minutes from where you need to be
  13. Doh, that went from bad to worse. Hopefully your kid is ok after the crash, but I agree that finding a replacement car these days is tough. Wishing you guys a speedy recovery from Covid. We will catch up with you guys in the new year for a run.
  14. Anyone else? This could be pretty fun.
  15. CANCELLED Important update, someone I was working with as recently as Thursday tested Covid positive Friday evening. For everyones health and safety around the holiday's I am going to cancel this run. Sorry for the late notice, I just found out a couple minutes ago. Anyone interested in a run this Sunday? I have an itch that needs scratched, and miss time on back roads. 1800 miles on 95 going to and from Disney World has me missing twisty roads. Run is on! Will need someone to sweep (unless someone else wants to lead). Date: Sunday December 19th Rough idea: 10:00 Meet at Leesburg Public House (cars and coffee from 9-11) 10:15 Drivers Meeting 10:30 Wheels up 11:45 (ish) End at Harvest Gap brewery I don't have a route yet, but it's likely to pass through the famous Lovettsville Squirkle at some point Thanks!

  17. Are we doing gifts per person or per couple? We will bring some kind of meat dish. Need to think about what travels well. Might smoke a brisket
  18. Can't wait. Margaux and I will be there.
