    We're getting there. If you read back, you've missed a couple that also committed.

    Also, how am I 2nd?! I started this list! :)

    On a serious note, can I order and receive my set now? I'm willing to pay the higher price and get a refund later -- I'd love to have these for my 2/2 track run at SoW!

    Thanks Joe. This might be an option for me when I get my car later in the year. I will miss the group buy, but the range of adjustment seems perfect for summer/winter conditions. The bounciness of the ST rear can get annoying if the road has expansion joints spaced just right to set off the frequency of the chassis. This sounds like it fixes both things with one product.

    Joe, any concerns with running these year-round in a region that can see temperatures around zero F for a couple of months? In the old days they used to talk about "all weather fluid" in shocks. Not sure if that still applies.

    While not exactly the same, I ran Koni "yellows" all year round in my ZX3. The oil, when cold, gave a much stiffer ride until it warmed up. I would assume this would be the case for these. All shocks ride differently in the cold. Running full soft in the winter is probably what I would do since it makes up for the cold oil.

    Ahhh good point raise the car to stock levels and set to soft.. Had not thought of the temp affecting the oil visc . Also brings up a good question If we need the oil changed can we have it done local or do we need to send back to you? Also what do they use for oil in these sweet units ?

    @Joe not sure if you answered this but do you get any rubbing at your lowered height? Im on 205/45/17 tires and want to drop my ST anywhere from 1" to 1.5". Do you think It will rub for me?

    Another question: are you using the max camber adjustment? I understand the BCs have a slotted hole at the strut attachment for camber adjustment. Just wondering what the max is. I will only add 1.5° same as you since my car is a daily driver.

    If you watch the race video I posted (vs M3), I'm running 215s and the car is lowered. No rubbing, even full lock, full compression. AND I am running 10mm spacers on TD wheels.

    Regarding the cold, it has a slight effect if any. Much like a cold tire. Once you drive for a few minutes it feels as it does in the warmer months. Normal. There are no changes you need to make with the BCs in the cold. And in the many years we've sold these, we've have never had a set go bad. That includes on our race car. They have outlasted my KWs. For the money, these are hard to beat.

    If you like, everyone can place their orders now and once we hit 7, I will refund everyone the difference. You and/or I will update this with each order placed.

    I recall Joe saying you could do -2.5 degrees of camber -- but way too much on a street car. :)

    Max was over 2deg before I pulled it back to 1.5. I ran it on the track at 1.5 too. So no I dont run it at max.
