Do NOT listen to PQ! When he says "break something" I'm not sure he means on the car.

Where is that wheel spinning video...?

I think I may have earned another

Answer #1 - Remove the wheels. This will get rid of wheel hop.
Answer #2 - Remove the axles and/driveshaft. This also gets rid of wheel hop.
Answer #3 - Leave THR22 parked. This disables the wheel hop option.

more , thread jacking and uselessanswers....

What are friends for ? Hey, at least you can attempt wheel hop...lol

Chris, when you go to install your Plasma's, hard wire them in. Don't cut the wires from the plasmas to the connector. Just cut and hard wire the wires after that which make them the full time "on" DRL's. ....if that makes sense. I think I need to take pix..hold up, I think I have one.

Long story short, there's a single wire with a wire tap at each end. It's supposed to connect between either the pos or neg (can't remember) from the car to the bulb socket (where the plasma plugs in) and between the pos or neg between the car and the side marker light. They give you these two T-Taps that just go in line. Sure, might be kind of fast and easy to just tap them in there. But, many of us have had the "blinking on and off"" DRL's that have been driving us nuts.

The solution? Cut out the T-Taps. Hard wire. Let's see if I have that pix...

wow....big pic...lol

No I don't have the camber bolts, but they did time the bushes. at least they said they did.

Car feels balanced, not springy at all. so I'm guessing they did time them.
Get the rear negative camber reduced as far as you can with the OE adjusters. If that doesn't do it we go with Pedders Extended Range Eccentrics. BTW, reducing negative rear camber also reduces understeer. Your car will be better on the strip and in the twisties.

Forgeline 19x10.5s on RE11 305/30/19s. The setup is sick. It even works on Challengers -- with the right offset. These are 85% runs at best during our shakedown day at VIR.





Of course the top performing of the three (Camaro, Challenger & Mustang) is...





































What we have worked out with our friends at Forgeline is more than wheel offset for clearance. We even the front and rear track for a square track and a square tire setup.
