I'm looking forward to 2012 season. This will be my first time running FWD so I'm pretty excited.

Got some updates.
You've already seen my 14lb 15x10" wheels


Yesterday I just installed full SVT brakes. I got a great deal on them, $200.

My last project is some H&R race springs and Koni yellow shocks.
That means I'll also be selling my KW coil overs soon.

^^ If you don't mind me asking ... why are you stepping into the Koni's and getting away from the CoilOvers?

Don't the Coilovers have a stiffer spring rate? And dont the shocks handle better in a coilover setup?

Actually they werent that stiff. And the shock was not adjustable. And they were too low for me, and they have like 40k miles on them now.
