Chris -

As usual we had a blast. Even Sunday morning, just chillin'. You are da man.

THR22 ran flawless which is a testament of a great build. ...and I bet your new suspension made for a great ride to and from the Fest.

We have lots of great pics and video of GTA and PQ. Having fun and even the grudge match interviews. Will post them tonight. Was just waaaay too fried last night to even attempt that...

Those do look pretty cool. But more importantly, how do they feel?

Absolutley, It's almost impossible to side step the clutch.. (not that I do that) and that tab on the gas pedal really makes it easy to rev match...

I can't beleive we had to wear fire suits...

Funny story, I'm slowing down from getting off the free way coming to a stop with the clutch in and the engine is reving to like 3 grand... I'm flipping out.... turns out my right foot was just touching the gas pedal while I was braking to slow down.... So yeah.. they work...

They really do feel better... Firmer, not mushy.. and it holds your foot on the pedal, I don't think you can use them with flip flops... LOL

and certainly NOT bare feet...
