yeah, every proper car enthusiast keeps their tires dirt-free at all times.

even a single spec of dust can have tragic results..

higher rotational mass = slower acceleration, slower braking, less handling, etc.

So I think that I am going to peel the plasti dip off my wheels today... Im going to miss my black wheels, but I am trying to get some new black wheels and tires soon for summer. I will just use the svt 5 spokes and Conti DWS's for winter. Some of the dip has started to peel and it looks crappy and when I touched them up it just rubbed off when I washed the car so..... Silver wheels it is.

Shit man, I did like 10 coats! 1 full can per wheel! My obsessive cleanliness and scrubbing is what messed em up lol. Actually the silver looks good, its been a while and I like to change things up every now and again. Hopefully I can just get new wheels soon and they will most deff be gloss black.

Update...

So the X4 will not work with the SVT at this point in time... The firmware is not compatible but apperently SCT is using a SVT from CFM to test on to fix the problem but who knows how long its going to take. So, I just sent the X4 back to CFM today and I purchased a X3 for the time being... Wanted a livewire but funds are kinda tight and the extra $200 would of drained me. Plus I need groceries lol... Organic veggies and grass fed beef is expensive, especially here in Cali. Anyways.... I should have the X3 tomorrow and hopefully I can get this puppy tuned! There is a dyno shop near by that I plan on having it tested at. Curious as to what numbers my N/A beast is puttin out.
