Sneak Peek: Mike Essa and GSR Autosport’s E46 Build



These control arms from Wisefab are part of the equation in pushing the tires so far out.  They feature a ribbed structure for high strength and low weight.  The rear joint is a heim joint eliminating play.


Bilstein Motorsports dampers are used in the strut configuration.  Two easy-to-use adjuster knobs are at the bottom.  The front suspension setup has the front wheels pushed out so far, Essa can get 70 degrees of steering angle!  Wilwood brakes will fill up the Forgestar CF5 wheels.


The top of the struts are pushed as far out as possible while staying Formula Drift legal.


The rear suspension is comprised of Wisefab links.  You can again see the easy-to-reach and read adjusters on the Bilstein Motorsports dampers.  Drive Shaft Shop axles will transfer power to the rear tires.
