Yeah hopefully gonna get some better pics tomorrow I'll roll it out of the garage. Other than the short drive I took and mashing of the go pedal I'd say they work pretty good. For some reason I feel the stock pads might have had more bite but i'll reserve me judgement until I can get her upto about 60 and slam on the brakes.

Front end is coming along now that the weather seems to be holding out for the most part I'll probably make my way to have the fuel system buttoned up. ATCO is open now starting on the 23rd test and tunes. So I'll shake it down for a few runs.

Ok, I'll ask.... Why do you need 1000 rwhp?

3/10 @ Atco is GM modern muscle vs Mopar.

Well I'm not going to tell you how to spend your money but I've yet to see a 1000 rwhp make a good driver. I'd hate to see you sacrifice the driveability since you do drive it. I'd leave it alone, power wise.

Exactly man I do drive it and I already had this conversation with the guys down at ECS. The end conclusion is that even if I strive for more power say 1000rwhp I'll be running a AEM TRU-Boost Controller. I plan to have a very streetable upper 500whp tune I'll leave it in probably 90% of the time so I can hookup on my 22s. Then i'll have a high 600s or low 700s mid tune, and then full tilt for when i'm at the strip with proper tires. Tuning it down with the controller will help the rear live a bit longer I hope as well.

So even if I go higher in the power level i'll be able to tame it down for streetability at the click of a few buttons

60 mile highway trips don't count. Take it on a 200 mile trip then get back to me.

That's a nice option to have. 500 for cruising around, especially with all the traffic up here, is plenty.

That's really cool that you can select different tunes at a touch of a button or 2! Nice set up!

LOL I got you man I told you I'd let you borrow the "Whip" when I acquire it .

Tires are great man I forgot what it was like to ride on a tire with sidewall. I hit bumps and I was like, wow this isn't half bad now LOL. Yeah man Ducati is like a work of art nice to look at, good because its hella uncomfortable LOL.
