We also have an open differential. It's a little harder to spin two wheels than just one. I'm trying to decide what wheels and tires to get right now. I wanted to go with something different so we could compare, but I keep coming back to basically the same setup that Beauwulf has but with taller tires (can't afford to lower her much). That's a nice setup; the only thing I would change would be to go with Nittos, but they are hard to come by right now.

We'll get there guys, but 0-60 mph is not high on my list. I don't street race and stock it has more than enough go-go to pass so if I do it, then it just because I think of it while I'm logging one day.
