Daily Driver: 2007 ZX4
Haven't really posted pics of my car on FF, so here goes. Current mods include cold air intake, custom exhaust, fairly extensive weight reduction (300+lbs), de-badge, clear corners, custom front lip, coilovers & spacers. Not sure if I'm allowed to post links, so mods let me know if I'm in error or posting in the wrong section...

nice. what all did you remove to shave off 300+lbs?

Love the low. Which coilovers? How's it ride?

Nice setup looks amazing even on stock wheels. Where's your hood?

car looks great.. nice ride height... still trying to figure out the xtra front fender piece

gonna be on stockers for a while, sadly... i HAVE to do a 5 speed swap before i do anything else (yes its an auto [poke])... i do have big plans though but i don't want to announce anything too soon (300+ hp N/A [grinking])

the coilovers are racelands, but i've actually had great luck with them. the spring rates are solid so it doesnt bounce much at all and is very smooth unless i hit a big pothole (but then my subframe scrapes anyway so its whatevs)

to shave 300+ pounds ive stripped the entire interior of nearly everything except my front speakers and a few select dash pieces... i have an aftermarket steering wheel, lightweight exhaust, cai, and shorty antenna (hey everything counts)... and I've undoubtedly forgotten a bunch of stuff (my closet is absolutely packed full of car parts)...on top of that ive done an a/c delete and gotten a little trigger happy with my dremel [ninja]

my hood is leaning up against the wall in my living room... i drive without it as much as possible (which is often here in south carolina [thumb])

i did the front fender add-on myself and it just consists of some fiberglass over-laid to disperse air from entering beneath the chassis... i scrape everywhere... and i enjoy it. fender heights are 21.5 front and 22.25 rear

if youre wondering about the weight reduction, yes it makes a huge difference... i would confidently take on a civic si with my auto-slushbox

Looks sick dude, love the coilies on there!

Not a bad ride... I actually dont mind the stock wheels, at least not when you sit that low. If you end up swapping wheels, are you going to find the lightest 16"s you can find then or are you considering going smaller/bigger?

I wouldnt doubt a 300lb decrease in weight would help, thats a decent nubmer of lbs [:)] How about an interior shot?
