Looks dope especially in the last shot. I'd love to see it sit lower though and some spacers couldn't hurt. Pavel has spoiled us all with his ride height and fitment:stickoutt

I like it a lot, but I've never been a big fan of those wheels. With a more proper wheel setup this thing could be sick.

We are about half inch from the front crossmember touching ground. Another round of bag design is scheduled for next week and we may just make it!

Again, this car is running 275/30R19 on 9.5" wide wheels all around so the tires may stop progress before mother earth gets involved.

Thanks for the compliment!

As for the wheels...I knew some of you guys would not approve. To be frank, I'm a performance guy, not so much a fitment freak. I wanted a square set-up with some light wheels that a guy that had four kids to feed could afford! This car is heading to the track as soon as Michigan gets back to warm where the wheel/tire combo will really shine. I do, however, agree that some spacers and a fender roll in back is in my future!!:stickoutt

The drop is achieved with a bolt-on kit that requires no modifications to the car and has 30 levels of proper damping adjustment, camber plates in front and threaded bodies for further adjustment of drop height balance. If anyone has an interest in learning more about this kit, feel free to hit me up!

Thanks for the replies, suggestions, and compliments all. I really appreciate it.

You're a performance guy and this is a track car, so you put it on air? I'm not following...

Matt-

I finished 7th fastest out of 85 car at the Motorstate Challenge track event at Gingerman Raceway in our 2005 Mustang GT with a mere 300hp up against 500+ HP monster cars. My usual lap times when out testing put me in line with regular race cars.all on bags.

We understand how to use bags, proper damping and understanding of suspension geometry to make it work as good as any normal coil over system. If you want a dedicated track car, them go get a dedicated track suspension. Our is designed to do well at the track yet not beat you up on the way home and still let you get over any speed bump.

So, yes. An e39 on bags heading to the track. In fact, if any of you guys are near Lansing, MI or Detroit, give me a shout and I'll take you for a ride and let you experience for your self:cool

People always look at me crazy when I tell them you can track your car on bags.


Although I don't care for the wheels or the lip, I respect that you track this thing and slam it in your driveway when you get home. If I had a e39 you'd have my money.

Edit: I'd also like to see how high the kit goes if you have any pictures.

If it handles as good as OP says it does, it shouldn't have that much lift when fully inflated.

I like it! You guys making any bolt on kits for E39 tourings while youre at it? Im trying to decide wether to go with bags or coils (money is the only issue), but the right product at the right price and Id stop questioning.

Damn dude, that's pretty sick. I've never heard of anyone with a setup that could stand up to a beating on the track and actually handle well. Good shit man. :alright

If you have a Touring WITHOUT factory air, I'm sure we fit. If you have the self leveling....I'm still trying to figure it out. Should have kits for sale in 30 days!

Wheels are cheap Moda Sports from TireRack for the winter treads...price on kit should be out very soon! Look for them in March.
