Thanks for the pics, Aaron. Looks hella hot.

Yeah... so, I kind of need to figure out what I really need to do in terms of the right wheel. Like some of you guys might know, my toe on that wheel maxes out at -.5 degrees or something and it won't go anymore toward zero. My options are:

Replace the hub and hope that fixes it.
Get Lateral links and that will probably tweak it to zero.
Or leave it and get it aligned as is.

Got to figure out what is going to work the best.

Anyways. I went auto-x'ing this weekend at Oakland. My first run, I did pretty decent. On my second and third run, I spun out. More or less at the same place. I think that the weight distribution in the front is causing a little bit of it. I think the car tends to oversteer. It is that, or I am still learning the suspension. Going through the tight corners in the beginning was great, but the fast turns at the end of the course is where the ride was starting to loose it. Definitely something I'll be need to tweak.

Would love to, but a take-home final is due Thursday. Grr. School sucks.

I am running 215/45/17's. I'll need to have the fenders rolled. After that, I should fit 225/235's pretty easily.

Thanks Danyo. I try my best. A little bit at a time. I still need to figure out how to reclearcoat the hood and it'll look even better. It is really coming along.

I just did my oil change today. I also did a height adjustment on the coilovers. I know we all loved that slammed look, but it wasn't really practical. I raised the front a little, and now it has a slight gap in between the wheel and the wheel well. Hopefully, that'll run a lot better.

Close. My first set is GunMetal. My second set is chocolate bronze. That set was painted by the previous owner. Those are the ones that are on right now.
