Spent last weekend at the NMCA/NMRA at AutoClub Speedway enjoyed 3 days of autocrossing. Worked the suspension as hard as I could. The handling is awesome, and it felt great on the track. I finished in the middle of the pack for the modern muscle class, it was more driver holding back then car. This was the first time she had been on the track and definately ready for more.

As far as the daily drive improvement with the suspension, the ride is a little firmer, which is not a bad thing. The one big thing i noticed is I have this big hill in my neighborhood, before the suspension when i came down the hill i would feel like the back end wanted to slide out, now i can just haul a$$ down the hill....
And of course my kids love to do the slalom, and before it would bounce you around in the car, now its a smooth back and fourth motion.

As far as the cosmetic's the change in stance makes the car look that much better!

Going in for the chasis brace tomorrow.


HEre is a run from sunday, what a blast!!!

Just did the front fascia, the lines are on the seams If u look hard u can see the lines, but most people don't notice.

I do like it for the protection. I think it's 3M I'll have to get back to u.

One of the best things about living in California (besides the weather of course) is the manufactures that have their business's near us.

A couple weeks ago I was able to take my baby to BBK Performance in Temecula and they used her for some R & D.

Here is the link to their webiste that talks about their R & D

http://www.bbkperformance.com/blog/?p=221#more-221

While Blu2 was there they added 1-3/4" Shorty Tuned Length Headers and a cold air intake.

I think I got a good increase overall.

Increase by 12hp and 14 ft lb of tq
