As many of you know, we are always trying different things on the Ford GT at M2K Motorsports. We have been fighting this battle on how to get a better or bigger tire on the GT chassis. We have been working with a real good friend of mine Josh Scott with some great skills in engineering and CAD design to come up with a control arm that would allow a set of bead locks for the Mile GT. Well, we finally had all the parts machined and the jig made to fit the stock control arm and here is what we have come up with. We will be doing some testing on them hopefully at the first of the month to get some feedback. Just taking some baby steps and will see how things go. I know this is not for everyone but thought I would share some off the shelf things we have been playing with during all this COVID stuff.
