Yup I've got you down! I'm anticipating about a month of testing the prototypes before the first run of them are made. Dallas has been very busy with other projects (and his life) so this has slowed down a bit. Doesn't bother me as I'd rather it not be a rushed project.

The insider secret to my parts, once you buy uprights you get 10% off everything else. If you buy uprights and control arms or now trailing arms, its just 10% off everything.

I do plan on doing a bigger batch later towards winter of uprights and control arms and doing like a special discounted bundle. Thinking something along the lines of 20% off kit and bright dipped anodized a dark grey. But will be a kit and wont separate that bundle.

Will you be at Crow's on the 4th? If so, I wouldn't mind having a quick convo about it, if you have time. Especially if they would on your car and I can drool over them, a bit.

Nope, only get to do crows once a year (its a 1300mi round trip). Will be at Nats this year though dont know if I'll have a set for myself done by then. I unfortunately only get to have the scrap parts so I can sell the good stuff. And Im behind on making control arms so that means little time for special SM projects.

Will be Austin doing the job of trying to break a set first. Have the blocks to make two more sets here, just want to make sure no changes are needed first. I'll inevitably order material for like 10sets and just see how fast they go before the next 10 sets. The raw material is kinda spendy, so cant get myself to buried in stock.

Makes sense. Sweet. I can't wait! So... if no rear arms yet.. then I can spend money, that I shouldn't, on uprights...

Im pretty sure I have 2 sets of Evo Uprights, just need to check if they are 1.25 or 2". I think they're both 2" that I have left. Also have various Ohlins parts with a couple more batches for the flags that will get through the next anodizing steps.

I really need to get a webstore setup but working two jobs is killing me for time to complete those kinds of things.

Definitely be sure to advertise that deal for the uprights and control arms ahead of time. I know I would end up forcing myself to get a set and I know of a handful of other guys that would jump all over it as well.

As for the trailing arms I keep getting more and more interest but we'll see how many people have enough resolve to commit to buying a set once the testing is done. Even if half the people who have contacted me drop off an initial batch of 10 should be no issue to fill.

And thank you guys for the kind words and Dallas for squeezing this into his ever busy schedule!

The trailing arms are a no-brainer. They are a must-have for anyone wanting to run a decent tire without stressing about quarter panels. The uprights would be very, very cool too.. but I'm sure you will have plenty of us committing to the arms.

Those look great!

@ayoustin what wheel specs are you running to fit a 315 under the stock body?
