Gah it's so hard to explain from a rookies perspective... Let me try this...

When I first got THR22 I was afraid of it. Ask Randy. I had never owned a car with any where near 500 RWHP. So I knew the car could get me into a real mess if I didn't respect it. I've also learned that is the nature of horse power.

OK, I say all that to say this....

Yes the suspension was expensive. But on the scale of performance improvement, it is as much as the supercharger was. But in a vastly different way. When I first got the car,being afraid of it, I drove it very moderately. The supercars, sways, and bushings, remove that, "damn this thing is gonna kill me" feeling and gives you that, "I've got this thing under complete control." confidence. Like I said, I know the car can do more than I am comfortable with.

Simple example. Getting on the freeway in 3rd gear was an exercise in throttle control. At any time in the cloverleaf on ramp I could break it loose with a simple blip of the throttle. NOW, I could jump on the gas in the middle of that same on ramp and simply accelerate.

Bottom line, the car is better, safer, more refined.... Complete...

I am more excited to learn how to drive the car now, than I was when I first picked up THR22 from Tom Henry...

Maybe I'll be able to better articulate it the more I learn how to utilize the new found performance increase...


Gees I just wrote the extended version of Lord of the Rings...

so to sum it all up... you need me to drive your car again.

you can have whats left after I'm done with it. lol

ask Chris how much "stronger" he said his car felt after I drove it at the first fest.

then ask him how he felt when I tore out of the parking lot with it...

I'd treat it better than my own. the only problem being that I tend to find the weak points in everything...

just ask the GM guys about their fest tent last year...
