Do you guys remember Daryl out of San Antonio? He had that black 08 coupe with all the yellow stripes? lol well he got that SS wing from me. I have a way of bartering for parts that I find useful. I had used that wing as a shelf. but then he offered me cash for it so I couldnt turn it down...

That is light for sure. Sucks for 3+months wait time. Kinda wish mine were lighter but they are 3 lbs lighter than the stock 16x6 rims so I guess I can't complain.

Can't wait until Thursday when I get to pick up my AGX suspension and Paul's sideskirts from Marty. Looks like we'll be meeting in Tomball at the Home Depot.

Me either and thanks for grabbing those for me really appreciate it.




So, been thinking about the clutch issue. I may just end up getting a stock flywheel for it since my only option is to buy a clutch kit from either Spec (which is available) or Clutch Masters (the one I'd rather have). Been thinking of getting the stock flywheel and putting the money saved towards some sway bars since I'm putting all new stuff on the SVT. Getting stock clutch & flywheel + sway bars = still cheaper than a aftermarket clutch kit. I'm still undecided though and not sure what I want to do. I have to wait till Monday to hear back from THmotosports where I ordered the flywheel from and see if they can cut me a deal on one of the clutch kits besides the normal discounts they have. If they can I may get an aftermarket one, if they can't then most likely it'll be a stock one and should be delivered by the weekend which would mean the SVT could be up and running by next Sunday or the one after that. I hate being indecisive.
