Thanks Robert, rotors are toast so time to upgrade those and it looks like I might be going with a rebuilt diff vs going to a 9". Gotta slow down on the spending!

Mine is possibly spoken for, but if the other guy has changed his mind, you're welcome to it... Then you could rebuild one before taking yours out, unless it's completely gone... I'll find out something firm tomorrow...

Do you have any info on it? I think I'll still have issues with that diff. With higher boost the car will go over 1000whp and I dont want to have to replace the diff at a later date.

I thought you had a fully built driveline. You built everything else up and left the pumpkin?

pretty much, I have the 1-piece driveshaft from DSS and the 1400hp axles as well, but the axels snapped ~900whp and need to be sent in for warranty and burned up a diff pretty fast, so this is my second one.

I'm looking at other options besides DSS because of the cost.

surprisingly my tranny has held up fine so far.

Not sure if this has been asked yet but where did you get the LEDs from? Are those ports just left open?

You'd have to contact 2SSRS about where the LED bar came from. The ports are open for now; I think 2 lights in that port looks stupid, so im getting the bezel and creating brake ducting and will have the LEDs flushmounted into the bezel.

Car made it onto the RKSport website:

Car is at Blu808 to get a new set of rotors today as the last set were pretty warped. I decided to go with the slotted Granatelli rotors and hopefully that will fix the vibration I'm getting around 110+mph. If it doesn't, then it's inline for a full 9" kit from DSS.

She's also getting a front tow hook installed today; custom fabricated in house at Blu808. I've been doing more and more track days lately and everyone recommends I have one. Hopefully I never have to use it but I will eventually!

Car's going in for detail tomorrow for WekFest and getting finishing touches on Friday. Should be a fun weekend.

Car was invited to be shown at WekFest 2012 in San Francisco. There were 1400+ entries and only ~300 cars were chosen. Had a blast and will be going next year for sure!

Pulling the monster in










Ended up having to move around a lot; but def got one of the best spots in the show!




With a nice spot comes plenty of photo ops!




Of 378 cars there, the organizers of the event (wek'sos) gave away awards to their three favorite cars of the show......2nd place!



Entry Fee: $45
Food & Gas: $86

So you're saying you didn't deserve first? I was complimenting your car saying it should have won best of show.
