sweet pics, the mazdaspeed protege and the yellow vette really caught my eyes though. Love the Euro gold rims too.

Lol, no offense, but due to the fact that the corvette is like 2 inches off the ground and the camera angle make your car look like a complete bus.

^^^^lol, the short bus

Thanks for the compliments on the wheels, although after that the fronts are no longer gold, they're more of a blackish brown from all the brake dust They need a good cleaning, plus I think there still may be some mud stuck in there

^^^yep, still got the stockers, but I don't have ABS Val said she wasn't gonna clean my wheels either, dude you should see 'em. I'll snap a pick when I get home.

And another thing, wanna talk about brake fade. It was terrible. Devon is running Hawk pads and power slot rotors and he said he didn't have any. But believe you me when I say the stock brake pads can't handle this type of driving.

Towards the ends of the 30 minute sessions I was literally lifting off the throttle and hoping the car would stay on all fours through the turns. I would push the brakes in and I wouldn't slow down at all. On the way home when I almost passed up my road and stuffed the brakes, Val was folowing behind me and she said the front brakes were smokin like crazy

I'd have to say though the best part of the day was flying through the kink at 100+ mph.

I'd hope that was when me and you were going at it in the last session

Yeah but only like 20minutes before my battery died. And there wasn't any 'heated' action going on like me chasing Brian or anything
