Does anyone have any recommendations or first hand knowledge of the AAC Oracle Side View Mirrors? Quality and fitment issues?

I've seen them on Dtrimpi87's ride. They're real sleek, and give a better view IMHO. Plus the LED front is nice! He's had no issues that I heard. They look natural fit as stock.

I saw his pair but wasn't impressed Aaron, maybe the paint was bad? Was wondering if anyone else has had any issues or any issues with them for that matter?

What did you paint your interior red with? And how did you get those door inserts out?

Inserts come out after you get the panels out i used a utility knife to cut the melted heads off then used a very short screw i found at the hardware store, self tapping screw. Most interior paint was done with either my gravity sprayer or Duplo GM Colors spray paint.

It's done already or getting done soon?

What's the plan for the trans?

Gd luck with that 3.0 pulley. Between belt slip and high iats it's not worth it. OD rear cogs with a 3.4 front is pretty much the best way. 3.2 will slip bad but you squeak out a higher number.

What's the details on the nitrous setup? Dry, wet? Changing fuel systems?

How was the car setup when it made 759 rwhp?

3.10 Pulley Setup, 3.0 was fat fingered. Also i have quotes from Hughes Performance, and Gearstar for bulletproofing my Transmission~
150 shot wet setup Moving to 200 shot . I will talk to my tuner about the pulley setup because he tells me it Has major slip right now that might not be remedied with the Innovators West setup? But lot's of folks tell me it works and they are using it and it will keep your belt from slipping? At this point i have major slipping on the drive belt to where it has burns all over it, so we replaced it. All my pulleys have been purchased from Terry Reals who owns Florida Pulley Headquarters, but i did not see this combo set up or was i told about it when we purchased the pulleys so definitely have to look into it when i get back from Seattle.
Remember this is not going to the track, if the tranny goes it goes then it will get upgraded, so far so good! I have seen 800 on a 6l80e with no issues! Cheap fix is going to 5 pinion planetary gears from the stock 3 pinion planetary, like shafts, drums, and the amount of splines in the clutch hubs all need to be upgraded but the question is will i need to? Like i said before i am not racing this car and it is purely to say i can.

All, if you have something constructive to add to this thread, or want to ask questions, fine, but we will not have problems on Facebook or elsewhere brought over here... I've deleted some posts, and will deal with any further as needed..

We certainly don't need an echo stirring the pot...
