Because its his car and he can.

If it came down to a race in the tighter twisties between you and Beauwulf, I'd most likely put all my money on Beauwulf. There's a lot more to "real" racing than having the biggest motor/most HP. Though it certainly helps, it's far from the most important.

First off, the coil overs are Pedders. There is a TT in the works M8. I've raced motorcycles for many years (and at a professional level) and I just like to do these kind of projects. Why this particular one.. I went into turn 17 at Sebring and the brakes went to the floor! That's why! LOL!

Getting ready to.. yes! I'd like to do some Time Attack racing this year. That depends on the TT kit from API to be really competitive. I'm a little too chicken with the car yet to do head-to-head racing...

lol, i resent people who think the V6 shouldn't be racing. I've seen V6 Camaros beat V8 on an Autocross track. It all depends on the application. Drag racing? V8 would possibly win, but when it comes to full control, braking, acceleration, turning, shifting, the V6 has just as much chance to "win" as the V8. I admire Beauwulf, I wish i had the time and money to be racing all the time =D

Beauwulf, do you have a link or thread that shows all of your suspension mods? I would like to take a look and see what your setup is like =p I was hoping for Pedders Xa coils and their swaybar kit soon. =D

+1 i hate the fact that some people think that just because our cars are V6's that somehow we are inferior and aren't worthy of any time and attention. If that were really true than how would you explain some four bangers beating V8's on the 1/4 mile and making enough power to make any V8 guy jealous. just because our cars are V6's doesn't mean that our cars don't deserve any attention.

Guys, don't all get ur panties in a bunch. That's the nice part about owning your own car. U can do whatever you want with it. Was simply inquiring about engine mods and Beowolf answered them for me and I appreciate it. Have a good one!!
