New Shoes And Stance

I had the original wheels for quite sometime before I made the jump to spend some money on wheels.  One thing I wanted was to make sure I didn’t spend too much on the set-up as I also needed rubber.  I have always been keen on weight and function of parts. So i had wanted some lightweight wheels.  Naturally the price of such items is starting at about $1000usd…..unless I bought them used.

The sizes are 18×8.5 in the front and 18×9.5 rear .  The tires are 235/40 front and 255/40 rear, all with out spacers.

The muffler section was also modified as was the complete mid section of the piping.  The outside looked as if it were not modified, until that is, it was started up….

As a whole the system seemed to awaken the character of the car and yes performance is always a plus.  Not bad considering all was to be had for a couple of Franklins and the system was from headers back.  This was not the end for more was still to come….til next time

The 350z Adventure Begins

Upon purchasing the 350z, but not 3 months later, I felt it was due for a road trip.  So a ring to a friend and off we went………after the fill up that is

Now nothing compares to the feeling of letting go of your fears and coming out unscathed. It can be taking out your prized vehicle to a track day and bringing it home in one piece to …..

Now we didnt do it because we talked ourselve into it nor did we think it was a "breeze".  Fact is we walked up 18 flights of industrial sized steps with about 35lbs of harness gear at our ankles and thighs.  We did it because the water fountain and benches were now down there...

Where to now???
