Who the F*#k worries about seeing!!! I figure if I hold the wheel straight I shouldn't hit anything. Keep your eye out for the new JRE Gen V booster seat. Designed for the 5'6 and under crowd. So really just PQ and myself and with the way that fool has been driving he needs all the visibility he can get!!

Called them up a few days later and they said "oh yeah we told you it was all in stock, well we don't have one piece". Luckily they had one built that someone cancelled their order.

I would imagine that the drag stuff should be able to do that. I hooked up my gopro to my car and I was playing with my suspension adjusting it. Car squats but I have it full hard in the rear and it keeps it nicely under control for non-drag specific stuff.
Thankfully it's so early in the year in not really missing much. Pfadt also gave us the spring sizes/dimensions so we can also get then elsewhere. Ill know my next move in the next day or so.

So couple things to update on my front here about the car. Firstly, I'll have my new wheels in about 5-6 weeks just in time for show season. These wheels don't officially exist so I can't share any pictures with you all but I will post pictures of the 3d model renderings they are going to be sending. They are truly one of a kind and I'll be running some very aggressive offsets and sizes to make it work.

So in light of the car show season I'm going to spruce up the interior and exterior. Ordered some hydro dipped carbon pieces for the inside and I am going to debadge the camaro on the fender and replace it with the old school "camaro" from emblempros in black. Also I my carbon fiber seibon st trunk lid will be ordered and in the mail shortly.

I still have not decided where to put the supercharged LSX emblems I got. I'm thinking underneath the new camaro fender emblem? On the hood on each side? Any suggestions from you all?

I guess thats all for now

Can't wait to see those wheels! I think the LSX emblems would look good on the hood on each side!

Thanks. They are trying to talk me into running their new line of wheels one of them and I think I might do that. The deal is sweeter haha.

Agreed on the emblems I'm probably gonna do that. I think it be too much on the fender.

I can imagine haha. I do want to add some nitrous but I think the stock motor is probably throwing up white flags at this point anyway.:(

Thanks Guys. It'll be a 3-4 week lead time but I may have them lay Carbon Fiber over entire center piece and spokes which will increase the lead time.

First camaro on these wheels I think its gonna look great. Stanced my ride ready to kill em this year at the shows haha.

I was feeling out some placements for my badges I bought. I know I bought two so I was thinking hood or the fender. The fender I think looks cheesy under the CAMARO too much going on there. The hood I really like it up against the CF.

BUT! I put it on the trunk and man I really liked it. When i get my Seibon ST Trunk Lid I won't have the SS anymore on the back so I was debating just putting the badge back there. What do you guys think?

Looks incredible!! The wheels AND the badging! If I were you, I'd say the the badge looks the best on the hood, and it looks reallyyyy good. You can always put another on the trunk lid if you want, which will replace the small SS emblem.

Thanks guys. I am gonna put them on the hood. Just gotta get some 3M Adhesive Tape. I did a quick crap photoshop of the wheels on my car. Its not going to do them any justice trust me. 360 Forged told me this will be the first camaro for this set of wheels. I'll be having a professonal photo shoot after they are on for 360.

Emblems on the hood in my opinion, and the wheels are going to look SIC...
