Well, seeing that they are Savinis, and knowing the product myself, I'm gonna guess at least a few times AND in need of some more now.

Don't love the ride of 22s, but nothing looks better IMO. Painted wheels are simply a pain in the butt, even after they're finished correctly. It's just too easy to chip them. I deal with it cause they look so sic.

I love these wheels...just not the company that made them.

I think 22's only look good on a lowered car. Stock ride height and the car looks.... odd.

DUDE!!!

That mag has been sitting on my nightstand for a couple weeks! And I never even opened it!

I just opened it yesterday and was like...."That looks like Russ's...but that looks more red than IOM." Then I got to reading and holy freaking cow!
Dude, congratulations.

That is too cool that you got your own featured article in CP!

Thanks...it was definitely cool. That must have happened when they printed the magazine, because the photographer's pics looked much closer to IOM.

Slow down with the mods! I can't keep up...

Seriously though, I'd love to see some video clips when you get the nitrous working.

What gears did you decide on for the differential?

The 100 shot of nitrous is still there...we're just upgrading it to larger solenoids and a a shot from each side. We did spray the car once on the dyno, but it spun. Still made right at 800!

We ordered the LPE pre-loaded with 3.73 gears.
