Extra grip is going to be nice, but the rear is going to look better.

Went to the track for the first time with the stall on Friday. Didn't do as well as I had hoped due to a few factors but that's alright.

Managed a best run of [email protected] spinning off the line. Temps were around 82 degrees and about 85% humidity.

It did great considering the DA.

Adjusted my torque arm this weekend, misread the recommended settings I had seen in another thread . Also gave the car a much needed wash, clay, and wax.

Small update: installed some air bags this past week to help raise the rear a little, and give me some needed clearance for when I'm driving on the interstate with a full trunk and hit one of the massive dips they have. So far they have done their job perfectly.

Also took advantage of a 15% off sale ebay was having and bought an LED third brake light and some Lloyds floor mats (haven't came in yet).

Finally sold my old ZR1 wheels and tires too. Going to be in the market for a drag pack soon, and then I'll hit the track again

Mats came in over the weekend, the factory ones had seen better days for sure

Bonus pic of the TAs at Cars and Coffee this weekend.

Once or twice haha. I love that car too

Forgot to include that I debaffled my hood in my last post. Hard to tell if anything I'm experiencing is just placebo or not, but it seems my temps went down a little, and a slight increase in throttle response. Hood isn't sealed to the airbox yet.

Acquired some Racestars from another member (themealonwheels) this weekend!

17x9.5 295/45 ET Street SS. They make me miss the look of a polished wheel on my car.




My brother was also in a drift event at NOLA Motorsports on Sunday. Tons of fun, always makes you wanna get a drift car after!

Nothing too new to the car lately. Had to buy some front tires since my other ones were on cords.

Went with some bargain Federal 595s. Not a bad tire at all for the price, but I think I'm done buying wheels and tires for a good bit now. Shop managed to mount one of them backwards though

Got a great deal on a full set of non-ripped lumbar seats to replace my tired ripped stock ones.

They are indeed the charcoal as opposed to the ebony that came with the car, which honestly isnt what I originally wanted, but I didn't wanna pass up on the deal I got. However, I am very happy with them and they look a lot better in the car then I expected.

Finally got all the hardware for the intake on Wednesday. Been real busy with school and work lately.

Looking like the install should be around December once school is out. Only about a year after I originally planned lol
