I want a good wing, I'd like to have that full wings west body kit just to look "legit" but not worth the money, not yet. hahahaha
I've found that the car can understeer, or if you get out of that fate you can end up with a lot of oversteer really fast!

So still haven't posted cam specs "stage 43" means nothing. Lift Intake opens xx degrees BTDC, closes XX degress ABDC,,

And let me get this straight..You just pitched in came "Stage 3!!!! cams without increasing static compression?

Somebody want to 'splain the effect of intake valve closing on dynamic compression?

Yeah, expensive body kits would suck to have to replace parts of. Not worth it in my books. Other than maybe the spoiler since it stays off fhe ground. Understeer, what's that? Left foot braking and it's gone.

I forgot to mention this issue I've had up front, I'm now running wheel spacers but the jvabs with the lock rings tend to vibrate down and cause trouble.

I have yet to have one come loose. Are you hammering them tight while tightening them against each other?

You got time to make her right before SB.

Well I went around the left turn going into the right turn (first time doing this in the wet), the rear came out a lot, I tried to recover it, a whole lot of nothing happened, slammed into the bank on the outside of the right hand turn, went nose down up and over onto the roof. Damage: passenger fender, front bumper, windshield, body rear quarter on the passenger side, and radiator are all torn up, no cage damage.

I never paid entry for sandblast, finally worked out my zetec this past weekend, didn't think it'd be ready so it's Virginian rallies for me this year.
