I just ordered the front subframe from you folks. Any word on the rear frames? ETA? Estimated weight reduction? And whether you will provide an additional discount for forum members that have already purchased the fronts?


Good questions my man !! :)

Some of it, but I doubt it's cromo, so still some improvements available I'm sure.

after 20 sets made and our gained experience while making front subframes, we now offer 3 version of our subframe

 

now it offers 40% mass reduction ! It now almost 9 kg ~ 20 lbs less than OEM unit. 

 

3 new sets are going to Fastech Motorsport in Louisville

Still working on the rear. ETA for prototype is around September. Yes there will be some kind of extra discount for customers that got the front.

Version 3 is already at production for Fastech Motorsport. All future subframes will be ver 3.

 

We gained lot of experience and information form the customers and that led us to design the of a new lighter subframe version. The differences are mainly in metal sheets and piping.
