That's a good one!!!
The wait will be over soon as far as engine mods, as cam, injectors, & other stuff go in this time next week. So just a little bit longer!

The ZL1 Front piece came from Gary's Customz, then I bought the finishing pieces like the brake ducts & underbody tray from Ofer (2SSRS) and used the Oracle lighting package for the DRLs & Fogs



New wheels & tires are on. Can definitely feel the stopping power better, as well as acceleration, drives on rails, but it always did that with the Pedders suspension.

Enjoy!

Thanks bro, I try to keep it fresh, and my head is full of ideas. Got a few more tricks up my sleeve that I won't give away just yet, besides the engine work that CMS is doing. Like Michael Corleone said in The Godfather, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in"
I guess it'll never stop

Thank you my friend! Wheel Warehouse took a bunch of pics and they told me placement, I think the car will be on their site shortly. They took pics with a much better camera than my iPhone so I'm interested to see how they turn out. You should have your wheels/tires about a week from today! Don't forget the alignment, they're balanced.

Lookin' good! I love following your build because it never ends!

What happened to the NT05's? There is a night and day difference between those and the Invo's on there from what I hear. I haven't used Invo's, but I have NT05's on my SS and when they're warmed up, they're flat out amazing. Though, the new Michelin Pilot Super Sport's are supposed to be even better... in every category (except price... they cost twice as much).

Oh, and if your car handles like it's on rails, you're driving too slow.

Well I was looking over your car with the new wheels, and I'm pretty sure I finally found a flaw with your car!!! STOCK BRAKES! Haha looks like nothing is stock anymore but the brakes. Once again killer car man!!

You know, I was kind of disappointed when I won COTW (not really but you know what I mean) because when I won it, the car wasn't even near completion, but I certainly was honored to have won it! It meant a lot to me!

As far as 2 time, I'm going to try

I'm running Nitto INVO's, I was going to run NT05s, but my guy said I'd be replacing them a lot quicker, so I went with the INVOs.

I'd heard great things about both, and as you mentioned I was going with the NT05s but made a 12th hour decision to go with the INVOs, cause they'll grip well and give me a little more life. My tire guy said I'd be changing out the NT05s a lot sooner than the INVOs.....Even at 145, I'm on rails....Thanks to Pedders, Pfadt & BMR

That's next my friend!!! Or in line, just trying to see which ones I want, Granatelli makes a matte black rotor that looks sick! But they're coming!

Hell yeah those would look sick! What about the calipers? You going to stay black or offset it with red ones? I've been wanting to ask you about your mirror radar also, are you liking it? Does the radar work good in that cover?
