Well, what are you thinking? I have lots of thoughts!
First: Go thin or very thick...no in the middle. There's a window where they don't really "work". By that I mean:
With thin spacers (a few mm), your wheels are still "hub-centric" and sit on a slightly smaller lip of the hubs.
I did CF trunk paint matched to body ...twice actually! Second one came with an APR wing that I also had matched. You would not believe how heavy that stock wing/trunk combo is!
For bracing, you could do the Home Depot racing chassis bridge. I dont think i have the how-to anymore, but it's...
You gotta update your first post with accurate pics/links! I had to scroll back to remind myself.
Why did you finally decide to remove the U brace, given a few years ago you were against it?
What's the verdict on the fender cowl braces?
If you're looking for more weight loss, would you...
Weight savings! Yesssssss. You're my kinda modder!
I was so surprised how HUGE and heavy that center U-brace is when I finally got mine out. What was your net weight loss for the whole kit so far?
Any plans for the front bumper beam too? I replaced mine with the JDM one that was...
What ride height did you decide on?
With your OEM tophats do you have camber adjustment?
How many way adjustable are they?
I'm sure I have more questions than that, but for now I'll wait for more of the review!
Yeah, unless I make it big, I'll probably always buy used.
And forever I'll debate wanting:
a) a fast car that I can't drive at the limit on the street. And at the track and mistake is serious-injury territory.
b) a really well handling slow car that I can drive at the limit on the street...
Clothes are always a great option!
Car accessories are hard to do as gifts, IMO, because if the gift-receiver is an enthusiast, they usually have entrenched opinions on brands/styles/etc...
So I think a T-Shirt, Hat, etc... is great.
My list is probably pretty standard. Basically anything high hp, rwd with a few exceptions
Supra is intriguing to me. Even the smaller engine.
New STI (obviously not here yet)
One of the Caddy blackwings? Or even a lesser engine (but not base)
Cayman. I need to drive one...
Oh, also! does the flex fuel kit have some sort of real-time fuel tester that adjusts the base maps? Like adjusts for summer/winter blends and like if you still had a half gallon of premium in the tank when you filled with e85? That's probably common knowledge, I'm just out of the loop at this...
How "competitive" is bracket racing? Like... wouldn't the ultimate strategy be to just idle all the way through the course. You'd get identical times (albeit in the minutes) every time? No missed shifts, wheel spin, temp variations, etc... I assume such a strategy is frowned upon?
I did a downtube when i found a smokin deal on one. Then I could (while it was out...at my leisure) get a bung put on for an O2 sensor which helps with the tune (vs tailpipe sniffer or factory narrowband). I think I sold the factory one for about the same price so it was mostly a wash...
Years ago I did a bunch of research and convinced myself that heat-reflective tape was an excellent idea. I also convinced myself that the standard gold stuff auto places sell is over-priced and under-performing. I ended up getting some of this after reading a bunch of spec sheets...
