Thank you so much, I really appreciate it! That's fair about the Vossens; especially being 22". It seems like something people either like or dislike, not a big gray area. I was debating between the Vossens and a racing style wheel but ultimately decided the Vossens fit better with everything else I've done with my car.

glad you can take a critic i'm really picky about aftermarket wheels, it's rare that i see any that i like enough that i'd consider buying. curious tho, what racing wheel you were looking at? maybe i missed it, but do you race the car? i'm hoping to hit some FL tracks this year once i transfer to mayport, there's literally nowhere for my car to go out here

The way I see it, it's amazing to hear positive comments but if you can't also take criticism then you really don't deserve to hear the positive feedback. You have to take the good and the bad I didn't have any particular racing style wheel in mind. The only brands that are really worth buying were a bit out of the price range I wanted to spend. I don't race the car much. I go out to Palm Beach International Raceway and run it on the 1/4 mile but since it's a v6, I don't take it too seriously. It does good in bracket racing but heads-up is pointless haha! I actually took it out on the road course for the first time on Wednesday for a photo-shoot. It was a blast! I'd love to do that more but the car really isn't set up for it. There's a few decent tracks in Florida, I'm not too familiar with any specific ones that far north, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few.

I wanted to share a few pictures from the photo-shoot I did last week for my local track - Palm Beach International Raceway.
The track wanted to do a photo-shoot to advertise their road course driving club and I was invited to come out and run the track for the shoot. I shared the track with some amazing cars including two RENNtech Mercedes, a Ferrari 458, a Porsche GT3, and a ZL1. It was my first time on the road course, had a blast! Now I just need some smaller wheels so I can really push the car next time haha!
We had the amazing photographer from Avatar Productions, Inc. These are just a couple pictures taken with phones throughout the day. I should have copies of the real pictures to share before too long.

Good attitude, also really cool that you still go out and race anyway. You know more about racing than me, already, I should probably study the terms at least lol...My first time racing is actually gonna be at camarofest this year, I think. Stupid Hawaii doesn't have anywhere to do it legally, and I never pay enough attention to know when auto-x is actually gonna happen at the stadium here.
I've heard there's one or two tracks up north by jax, well, relatively close anyway. I've already checked in with the club in that area, but if I can swing it around the work schedule at some point I've already decided I'll make the trip south too, and get some track time there, and maybe check in with Florida speed and harass Matt for parts

Thank you! I can't wait to see the photos! We did some high speed shots with the photographer taking pictures from the back of the lead vehicle, I think those are going to be the most bad ass!

Hey you have to start somewhere! I've grown up around vehicles and my boyfriend is big into racing so it comes natural to me. It does seem like Hawaii would be a difficult place to legally race and it's not as though being willing to drive far helps… haha! When are you moving to Florida?

Those should make killer photos! I love when photographers shoot moving cars from lead vehicles! Fun to drive and fun to shoot when that happens

I posted this picture before but I love Photoshop so I've been messing around with different pictures lately. I really like what I've been able to do with this one so figured I'd share the edit.
Let me know what you think..
