Unhappy Cabin FEVER!

Just had the coldest day of the season, it's 2009, and realized I have over 3 months to wait for the first event of the year.
Just venting and can't wait to start dodging cones again!

new tires huh? does that mean you'll finally be able to run your car this year?
I've definitely got the itch too, eibach pro springs and FFRP shocks should be arriving shortly. New brakes will also be next since the current ones are starting to get a little thin.

hehe, well my wife felt bad for wanting an expensive purse for christmas so I told her to get me some suspension stuff. not quite sure as to how that makes any financial sense, but we now both have expensive crap we don't need lol

What size tires do you have there Steve???

Twerpie! Tryin' out the new XS's.
I'm psyched to see those in person.
So, which corner will get the new tire while you're waiting for the other 3? LOL!

3) not the corner that's 6-8 inches off the ground
