    @rudypoochris : simply put, the stock toe arms are flimsy and when you go for an alignment, the toe is ONLY slightly adjustable. With aftermarket, it is stiffer and more importantly, you can dial-in proper toe settings to save your tires and make you launch straight. Alignment in the rear affects the front, which is why getting perfect toe is important.

    I went with Megan's because they don't use ball joints at their ends, which will eventually make noise. These won't and they haven't for me. Had them for a while now.

    First couple launches were standing still between 3K and 4K RPMs. The rest were 2nd gear rolls. The only change was the rear strut was adjusted from 5/9 to 4/9 (9 is softest). Temps in the 60s.

    When you look at the dark side, careful you must be. For the dark side looks back.

    I have stock OEM bumper. I mounted at the bottom. It's slightly offset to the left. The suction cup will hold but will not cover the entire circle.

    I was at first but not anymore. It's stuck there pretty tight, just make sure you push the suction cup all the way and flip the lever all the way.

    Dang, I don't think I can do that with my diffuser. I'll see what I can come up with.

    Nietzsche-esque lol.
    In regards to go-pro mounting, my original video car has the M-design body package,we used about 1'(at least) of extension links, I was adamant that it would wobble or pop off. Much to my surprise it was steady and even stayed after tapping the ground pulling out of a dipped driveway. I just cleaned the suction cup area with glass cleaner and set to "maximum suck" lol...I was impressed. Go pro's are great.
