He runs star specs I believe.

that will be my next tire. even though they are street use legal I'll probably keep them for track use only.

He ran star specs on the 17" SVT Focus wheels

Monday on the Conti rims he had Michelin Pilot Sports? or something like that. Unsure what he's going to next

well cheap is all relative...

looks like complete supercharger kits are ~$3k.

problem is i have the 1.6, not as much aftermarket support.

I didnt know what they were but I knew they were bald. either way bald tires suck.

AKU and I went from struggling to keep up to the furrin guys on new rear tires and bald fronts too being able to keep up after he bought new fronts.

$3k is a new price for a complete kit. haven't seen many listed used.

although if i'm going FI I'm going megasquirt... if i'm going megasquirt I'll probably go PNP... although a Megasquirt 3 would be legit, just take a lot longer to setup.

Truth

Also I kinda wish you had drove my car this weekend (at both events). I feel like I was pushing the car a lot harder this weekend.

Not as much pushing around corners but just a little and it was balanced to the point where when I started to get on the gas if I didn't roll into it the back end would have slide out so I feel like I'm getting the balance of when to brake, how hard I can turn in, and when to start powering out. It felt really solid.
