PQ, here is how you can beat GTA... Serious stuff... when you relocate the heater hoses, since you'll have to lengthen them just a little bit, make them long enough that you can tie them in a knot around the back of Speedsters build... Throw your's in neutral and hang on... 550 HP one Camaro vs 1600 HP and two Camaros, it works if you do the math right...even if he has to pull yours with two flat tires...

The muse hath descended upon me and giveth a story of power and grace...

And the world shall know that the gods of traction and stability have bestowed upon THR22 that which will lead to the abolishment of the dreaded Roll of Body Beast, and his evil cohort Skid.

For the esteemed Pedders, maker of all things suspended, has been obligated to forge the weapons Coilover of Power, Bar of Sway, Bush of Control, and the Blessed Link of End.

Therefore all ye that live in these times shall enjoy days filled with quickness and traction upon the use of the blessed weapons. For the power contained within THR22 may now be delivered in so much as the evil Body of Rool and Skid will be consumed by all that is good, giving the world the holy gift of grip...

Well alright GTA !!!

Good talkin' to you today and you have every right to be cranked. Kudos to Pedders for helping you pick an assortment of parts for THR22.

But the ultimate has to be the "Bush of Control" :facepalm: :sm0:

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO tempted to jack up THR22 and get the install going RIGHT NOW...

:D

I can't wait to see what these supercars are all about... Pete spent a ton of time with me helping me figure out what sways and bushes would be best for my driving skill and comfort level. I wasn't gonna get the supercars but Pedders makes a pretty strong case for it being the best on the market right now... I love the idea that I can adjust in both directions (rebound and compression) for the strip, and reset everything for an autoX setup... pretty damn cool.

I must have spoken to Pete 15 times over the last month or so in either PMs or email going back and forth... I knew NOTHING about suspension before...
The guys at pedders were extremely willing to educate me and help me make a good choice.

Pete and I have a gentleman's bet that I will be happier with my suspension than I am with my maggie.....

Can't wait to find out...

:D :respekt: to Pedders!

Mr Twisty 03-17-2011 08:34 PM

WOW!

just

wow!

....speechless

I thought you were getting drop coils... that's one sweet setup!

Betcha you don't have to worry about wheelhop anymore either, and imagine how good it's gonna look dropped! How low you gonna go?

I'm thinking about dropping it down pretty low... just to see what it's like on the road.....

maybe 1.5" in the front and close to 2" in the rear... at least for a little while... just cus I can.

:D

But I'll check with the experts before I go crazy :headbang:

Chris, the new mods are cool! You are going to love the feel (and look) of a lowered car with sway bars. Of all the mods I've done, I think droppong my car and putting in sway bars was the best. You'll be wishing you lived in the mountains with lots of twisty roads! Please take lots of pics of the install.

Hey Chris, I thought you said you were getting drop coils... I read your soap box story when Pete forwarded the link.. I looked at the picture.. you didn't say you were getting Supercar coilovers!

So.. what are you doing for tires and wheels? You need some now...LOL

Man oh man.. you better hurry up and install that stuff. I know what the ride is like, I can't wait to hear your opinion! :happyanim:

You made a WISE suspension choice, my friend.. :D

Yeah I'm very excited to get the supercars..... for now I'm gonna keep the stock 20's... I'm very slowly working on a set of dd wheels but have been watching the options for 18's and glad to see we have some out there that clear the brakes... so as I get more and more into tracking my car... I'm sure I'll be looking for better stuff to take full advantage of the new suspension.

Plus there are still a ton of bushes left to get... :thumbsup:
