Thanks Josh for the offer.

Alignment is scheduled for Friday. It's driving great. The steering is so direct and I think it will invoke a lot of confidence at the limit of traction. I think about at track/autox and when I would be sawing a bit at the wheel on long sweepers and I now realize I was using steering input against the play in the rack. I should be able to really push it and keep it right on the knife edge so to speak. I lowered it some today so right now it's at 5" at the pinch welds, front and rear. Needs a little lower but I don't want to sacrifice rear travel.
Got the steering hub, QR, and steering wheel back on and it's tracking dead straight.
Although it does follow the cracks and crowns in the road. I think I notice it even more now because the play is gone. Sacrifices. .. We'll see how off the alignment on Friday.

Took it for a little spray off.
