I hit that same cone like five times that day. The slalom narrowed so I should have been slowing down. Of course I didn't!!

That is also why I am reluctant to purchase an SS bumper!

Thanks. Pricing out a 1.5 in Powell rear sway bar, stage 2 clutch and fly wheel, and way more just gotta stay focused on one or two things at a time!

Someone is selling the ones I really want right now (same led ring in reverse lights). Coloradodude or something but he is asking way too much!! I bought mine on ebay, they had the cheapest price I just watched them for like a month.

Awesome car! Makes me really miss my fully bolted Black LT! we almost had twins. here was mine.












couple comments though,




in this pic there is a butt load of sidewall rollover. You been watching your tire pressures before and after runs? Just from looking at them it seems that the pressure should be higher. not hating just trying to help out OR ask i guess lol







fix that low hanging bend in your exhaust! I had the same issue with mine in my LT, and its a cheap simple fix to do for a shop, or its easy to do yourself too. saw it here








and finally, get that valve cover painted up real nice. It would really compliment your engine bay! here was mine







and considering your suspension setup, I'd highly recommend getting the Hardcore bar over the Street Bar. You wont regret the extra stiffness. It's awesome on the track

1.Tire pressure is consistantly at 38-40 cold, not sure I should be going much higher than that. Thoughts?

2.Exhaust was fixed since that pic!!

3. Already bought the gasket, just waiting for winter when the car will be on stands!

4. Just talked to Powell yesterday about the Hardcore bar, just need to collect $275 + shipping!

5. Cant wait to have my windows tinted like that. Obviously least important mod for me right now along with the stereo!!
