If you decide to buy a camber/caster gauge, let me know. I have an essentially new digital Longacre Caster Camber Gauge and Large Wheel Adapter I'm no longer using.

Lol I especially liked the part about you lightening your steering column. I got a kick out of that.

We both have red, caged, stripped, wingless M3s on anthracite ARC8s with slicks and both have push button starts. Hell, we even have the same trunk straps. And have both been OCD about taking out weight. Well you beat me a bit on that one.

Have you taken out your traction control sensors also?

Iíve removed the yaw sensor. Still have the steering angle sensor for data. Need the wheel speed sensors for ABS.

Thanks...wasnít fun spending all that time cutting sheet metal and drilling spot welds but you cut out a surprising amount of weight.

I took out the steering angle sensor wiring, but regret it. It would be nice to be able to analyze video using steering angle when learning how to trail brake.

Iíve done a couple of things that Iíve regretted. Lesson learned for the next one!

You can probably reinstall those wires. Let me know if you need a pic or something.
