Some proper small brackets and some carefully measured slots with the MM panel is most definitely the coolest solution I could imagine. The brackets on mine are a headache.

There are many that drive with the GT/"LTW" tray on the street. The OEM tray is very durable to abuse and it isn't that expensive. The tray struts are for whoever, but they are a BMW Motorsports part for track use.

Gurney Update: "Next week the die will be finished from revision, sample run soon after". Not holding my breath on that one.

Tray Strut Update: Full production sets are now completed and due back from powdercoating early next week.

I will be starting another information thread for the GT tray and 318/is tray. There are details I did not know until recently.

To better demo the replica tray struts I also purchase all OEM tray mounting and OEM splitters.







OEM 95mm extension versus custom underpanel and tray at 115mm extension





Shown here is some layout testing for 0-115mm tray movement using my own underpanel. This is demostrated on the Motion panel which I intend to offer install directions to static mount the tray for those that do not want to change panels.

Big M12 rivet nuts for the center mounting. Outer mounting require spacers that I'm having made now. Rivet nuts are for STATIC mounting only.





Figuring out the math to start a working CAD file. The red slots represent tray adjustment. There is some concern with the large material loss on the outer mounting so this may require creativity.



And the full production run of tray struts...



(for those that notice. The metal here is ~3x thicker than the OE metal. I'm having another batch of the thin OE metal with reinforcement indents added. Thicker will work with any setup but I want them built tough for setups mounted to underpanels and not the OEM mounting setup)

Great work as usual. I'll certainly be in to buy this when it's available.

Still haven't installed the S/C hardware haven't driven the car in 3 years.

Any idea how and what price the splitters? Are you thinking a complete plug-n-play setup? Not sure what this really means. The setup includes everything needed? I'm interested so I'll follow the thread and hopefully snap one up.
Thanks, Joe
