Im glad he asked about the Vreds. I too am having tire issues with Pirrelli Rossos holding stock power, my supercharger goes on next month and need new ones. Ill be at roughly 520RWHP so i should have no slipping issues? since you are pushing 750RWHP

Oh and the LEDs look SICK

Don't get me wrong I can still blow the tires off but at this power level and to say that the vred is a street tire and not a drag radial..I was surprised and very satisfied with them. Even Nick at Lethal Racing said he was surprised how well the tires performed TRYING to reign in 750hp

Thanks...right now with just exhaust work i mash the pedal under 40mph and i slide sideways, fun... but frustrating. Im adding 120HP to it so its going to be worst. I just want a tire that i can mash and it goes, alittle slippage is fine, but mashing it in second at 40mph and back end kicking out is scary

That sounds really tame for a night fury! why is that? just how you had it tuned or what sounds very mild compared to the other NF videos ive seen. i do like it.

I guess it's just how Lethal tuned it. I've always thought the same too. It idles around 950...I've seen other cakes idle between 850-900. Idk if that would make a difference. I was also told it was bc I have a mid muffler exhaust and not the standard dual mufflers towards the rear like most of the other systems out there.

I wouldn't mind alittle more chop at idle

May be the mufflers. I'm running Borla ATAKs and you can hear every little chop hehe.

I'm going to have it painted white and have matte black hood spears put on it.....OR I might have it wrapped in carbon fiber. I haven't decided yet but it'll be finished by the end of the week for sure. I can't leave it how it is bc now bc it its just a gel coat on it and they have a few scratches and edges are freshly cut and need to be smoothed down

Had a little free time today after the family left so me and my gf decided to do a little bit of painting. We did my throttle body and dipstick handle and plasti dipped the emblems on her jeep. Looks much better now that everything blends in together

Got my footwell lights installed last night. Tapped into the dome light so the lights will only come on when the doors are opened.

Wrapped the radiator shroud in carbon fiber. This was my first attempt at wrapping something with so many contours. I think it came out pretty good.
