After putting about 500km on the car this week after having it back, and the verkline stuff to settle in. Did an alignment verification and double checked everything. Track time is inching very very close!

Does the Verkline subframe have attachments for the underbody aero?

my Clubsport rear divorced are 80N/mm my V5 rear coilover will be 90N/mm but a 50mm i.d. spring instead of 60mm i.d.

Also, since the spring is located further outboard than the stock setup, it changes the motion ratio acting on the spring (think lever arm torque), so even though the rate isn't much different than the previous setup's, the spring located further from the center of the car will act stiffer.

something something wheel rate vs. actual spring rates. Suspension tuning can get complicated, lol.

It's missing some stuff in the rear which the Verus rear diffuser used off the rear subframe and had to fabricate some brackets to make it work. We also had to refabricate the rear exhaust hanger as the mounting point on the OEM rear subframe does not exist on the verkline subframe, and especially with the lateral support beam in the track variant of the rear.

In the front, I didn't look closely enough to know for sure though I saw some unused spots for screws where I presume additional undertray could go but I don't 100% know for sure.

When you get a chance could you take a picture of that area? The product page it looks like it doesn't but easy enough to make some basic brackets.

Can do, and in the meantime this is the best photo I have of a quarter of the front subframe or so. Maybe it's useful, maybe not. I will make a not to take some more next time I'm under it.
