thanks man. It should look better once I get that front splitter and rear diffuser on there.

here's pics of my 'stereo' lol



the 2 holes are gauges that I don't have yet, obviously. One will be the Knock gauge for my J&S Safeguard. and the other is a Aeroforce Scan gauge.

Cluster was made by Dominic (Focus_3XZ). Dude does awesome work. They should unban him.

Yep. I got a stereo. here it is





everything is gone. Last time I weighed the car, it weighed 2,730lbs with me in it and 1/2 tank of gas. I'm going to try to do some more weight reductions. I'd like to get in the 2,600's with me in it. That'd be pretty light. Creepin up on miata status. lol

LOL, ok i had planned to use an ipod too, here is my recommendation for you.. get a set of sony mdr ex51 headphones, they are cheap now, and they provide excelent sound quality compared to apples crap, they have really good bass and isolate noise. Any idea on the weight of the sound system of the car?

yea. at first it kinda sucked, cuz the system I had in there was a bitchin one, but I got used to the ipod. I'll have to check out those headphones.

and no idea on the sound system. Mine was completely aftermarket. When I took everything out, I lost 300lbs from the car. so it was pretty noticeable.

absolutely. Hopefully it'll be on w/in the next few weeks. My buddy that's making it is a part of the Scion Racing pit crew. So he's been traveling with them doing races and stuff. I'm gonna try to bug him about it so he can make it. He's making a custom crash bar to mount it to. I'm using a material called alumalite to make the splitter out of it. I thought it'd be good material because it's so lite (trying to avoid adding a lot of weight to my car), but he made one for his srt-4, and I'm not sure how it'll hold up. Although he was at this Buttonwillow event with me and it worked fine. I'm just scared of hitting a speed bump or something and ruining it.

And after seeing Clint's (RickB) splitter, and watching him literally stand on it (although he only weighs like 130lbs lol) I kind of want to make one out of wood. We'll see what ends up happening.

But my plan is to make a complete underbelly pan out of this material. I'm going to be making a full functional rear diffuser for the car as well. Not sure if I'll be using this material or regular aluminum yet.

So stay tuned folks!
