Nice!
I gotta ask though...why the 18" wheels??
^^^Big brake kit?

You definitely were getting into it more in the 2nd vid.
Still got plenty of wheel spin, even with the LSD. [eek]

Well the car was setup up for the SEMA show so 18" wheels were mostly for looks more than performance. Same goes with the Brembo big brake kit, however the brakes are actually needed more then the larger wheel size.

We actually have some 17x9 wheels on order now and will be adding real down force front & rear. We will be running some 245 race tires next time out for better traction.


Thanks,
Vik

it's great to see FSWerks on FF. it'd be great if you guys had a sponsor page. i like to go to FJ every now and then, but it's hard to get any responses over there.
