Have you taken the test yet? You never know, man. I'll offer up a little prayer for you.

Man, sorry to hear about the rims. I swear at the last meet I thought those were brand new, they were really standing out for some reason. I've seen your car a few times before (i was at the mall one day a while back and i seen ur car parked near the burlington coat factory i beleive) and they just did not stand out as much. Anyway, hope you can get that smoothed out, how bad is it?

Not as bad as some I've seen. The scrape is only on the edge of the lip thankfully and not on any of the spokes. It's probably only about 3 or 4 inches long, but I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so it seemed huge to me when it happened. I looked at it yesterday and I don't feel quite so bad now. I think I'll take Brandon's advice though and ask Discount Tire about fixing them. The last time I got tires on the ZX3, I saw a guy with a MINI Cooper who was having some guy repair/paint some curb rash on his wheels, so I know they know someone who can do it. It'll just end up being a matter of cost. On the positive side, this will also help me find someone to fix the dings and repaint the set of Exel wheels that I have waiting to be put on the ZX3.

Nope cost way to much it was almost twice to 3/4 more money than a manual swap done, just LSD for lintech to put in the tranny was 1300 bucks.

What's the "Pro racer package", and how much does it cost compared to a dyno tune?
