Planning on attending the F.A.L.L. Cruise to Tahoe tomorrow. This is the first time I've been able to make the cruise and it's for a great cause.

Quote:
The first year we started this was to raise money and honor our great friend Katie Taylor who was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. Unfortunately we lost our friend to this horrible disease, but have not forgotten her. We dedicate this cruise in her memory, as well as all those in our lives that are affected by Leukemia and other cancers.

This year we are also doing the cruise as a memoriam to Matt Camp, who was lost in a tragic accident recently. He was a friend to many with-in the group. We are asking that all who attend are respectful to the cause, and also the cruise.
Aince I'm heading up to Lake Tahoe on the scenic cruise tomorrow, I wanted to replace the F1's with something a LITTLE bit better suited to the cold weather (it's supposed to be in the 50's). Good thing I had a set of wheels/tires just lying around...

Here's a teaser of Z in his Saturday Best.

What a day! Taking the scenic route to Tahoe, getting pulled over "guilty by association", meeting a bunch of new friends, as well as hanging out with many old friends, and driving back into a fantastic sunset really made this day a great experience. One can only hope that every other event is just as nice (although without being pulled over would be ideal. lol

loving the new ride bud!!

question about your old car. you lowered it quite a bit yes? like 2"? do you recall how many miles you put on your car with it being lowered that much? Guys in the suspension thread are freaking me out saying if I lower my car any more than 1" that I will blow up the CV's in my rear axles because of the angle lowering puts on them..... Did you drive your old car hard at all? Mine will be a street car but planning on making 750RWHP. Basically want to build a car that sounds good, looks good and does big burnouts at 60mph!! let me know what you think, thanks bud.

I lowered the car 0.75" on Pedders xA's. I don't know if it was the blower or what but the car always looked lower than cars dropped on 1"+ springs.

I never had any issues with my axles/driveshaft/cv joints and I did drive my car hard, although only after letting the car get up to operating temperature, letting it cool down afterwards, etc. I was never abusive and took the car to road courses, had fun in the twisties, and went to the drag strip a couple times. Never launched the car though. I would always roll into it like accelerating from a stop sign. 2.2 sixty with no traction at the top of every gear running 12.6 @ 119

Thanks man. It'll be a LONG time before I can customize Z to my liking, but I absolutely love the ULTRAGRIN he gives me. =)

Anytime. I took measurements and found out that the drop really only amounted to .5", but I can show you pictures of the car next to other dropped camaros if I can figure out where they are.

Thank you. It took about 30 names before Wifey immediately said "That's it!"
