    So I spoke with PowerFab today. We're still waiting on the SPL Rear Camber Arms. Once they arrive they're going to start installing everything. Than I will get daily updates with pictures. The HRE wheels are going to remain off until everything is completed to avoid a mishap. Brought up a good point that we wouldn't want a tool to be accidentally dropped on them.

    On a personal note... I'm hoping an Act of God comes through and approves me for a Visa so I can be home May 3rd. If not I'm going to wish for May 26th. If not I'm going to lose my mind! LOL!!! Really hoping for May 3rd as we're hoping thats when the dynoing will begin.

    Picked up this little guy so I don't have to keep turning off my VDC every time I get into the car.



    Traction control switch in your vehicle. The unit automatically stores the ON/OFF state of the switch when the vehicle is shut off and restores the setting when the ignition is turned on. The SM20 also allows the control of an external switching relay through the OEM traction control switch!
    Key Features:*
    *
    • Is compatible with the Mini Cooper "Sport Mode" system
    *
    • For "two stage" systems that require specific timing please see the FM20
    *
    • (-) 200mA AUX output is toggled on/off with two quick presses of the button (requires (1) A-SPDT to drive high current loads)
    *
    • AUX output can be used to disable traction control computers, yaw sensors, wheel sensors, etc to completely disable traction control systems
    *
    • AUX output can be used as a general purpose on/off switch that is controlled through an OEM button. Because AUX output requires two quick pushes it will not change the state of the traction control system!
    *
    • Fully compatible with any (-) push button switch in the vehicle. Module is NOT limited to the Traction Control System.

    I knew in the back of my mind my car wouldn't be ready when I got home. But I kept denying it, thinking positive... Till this morning. God I hope I'll be able to spend more than one day with it like the last time I did a big build (with a different shop). I know the guys at PowerFab are working hard and will get it completed correctly. Just was hoping for to be able to drive it my full two weeks of R&R. Oh well... Keep in it PowerFab! Doing Great! Thanks!!!!
