p21 wheel gel for sure.

on the subject of alcohol. the only time I care what it is, is when im sober. as soon as I get a little drunk, I cant taste the difference and it all goes down like water.

friday i drank jack and diet cokes, got drunk, switch to jameson's and then makers with a ton of beers mixed in. only drinks I remember "tasting" were the first three jack and diet cokes

Any particular reason for the P21 wheel gel? That **** just never did a good job for me.

I like it cause its safe on everything, even cars with ceramic brakes and polished wheels.

its not the strongest stuff in the world but thats why I have the megs wheel brightener.

I also like it cause it clings to the wheel. say I have to wash an expensive car like a 911 gt2 that just came back from the track or something. I can spray the wheels with p21s gel without wetting them first, let them soak a bit and not really worry about messing the wheels or brakes up.

nothings gonna really clean the wheel for you which is a huge misconception with the sonax stuff. youre always gonna have to use a brush/mit.

try chemical guys diablo wheel cleaner gel. its good stuff. similar to the p21, smells SO GOOD (all the chemical guys stuff does) and its cheaper iirc.

If any of you are ordering from detailer's domain let me know. I have a couple of things to order but not worth it to pay shipping on just that. I can place an order if anyone wants to get in on it. I'll be ordering some leather protectant and possibly a few other things.

I have a brand new implants box of Turtle Wax Blake Box that I bought right before selling the WRX. Its a 3 step wax kit that dries black instead of white so no white streaks like the back side of Nash's underwear!

Let me know if any of you want it. I may just use it on my brother's car if no one wants it.

exactly, and it's not like i'm out there making ludicrous statements that my car is doing this and that and making this much power. if you don't like it thats cool, everyone has an opinion and i respect that 100%.

the subipal wry tribute build thread in members gallery dislike that. the guy has his head up his ass saying he is making all this power, and then he posts pictures of a new sway bar that he installed backwards and goes on to bash everyone that posts.

i <3 the inter webs

the moscow plates are actually from my families other car back in the motherland. the antenna is for a CB, the picture was taken when i was doing a drive with a bunch of friend in PA, we all had kb's.

Redpanda, to further what Gfunk said, aftermarket wheels and tires will significantly improve handling. Lighter wheels paired with lighter and stickier tires will be waaaay better than the stock setup.

Lemme know if you're ordering. I want a single thing that costs 1/2 as much to ship.

Donzo, I fully understand the implications of lighter wheels reducing centrifical weight, reducing braking distance as wheel as increasing agility, in combination with stickier tires. My point was that, my specific geographic location is prone to theft and to me not worth the upgrade, especially if I had flashy rims.

I guess that's what insurance is for, but I would like to stay "low key."

The other side of this argument would be, you could get your **** stolen and then buy American... win win!

Ha true.

Stoaked, got a sweet deal on a k24 long block.
:P. Almost tempted to just flip it and make some quick cash. If any of you guys would be interested in a jdm gsr swap lmk its built too. I guess I'm gonna be sourcing k series parts now... Gotta love k20/k24 combos.

i'm SO tempted to buy those. but no one wants my wheels. ALSO, i think 245's will be way to stretched on that setup. so i'll need new tires.

but man do i think those will look sick n my car. **** it i'll offer him a trade.

speaking of tires, closeout sale on these tires, REALLY cheap for 275's. is this worth it?

Thats a crazy good deal... That's what I run on my summers. I paid close to $1,000 because of the odd size I requested.

The Eagle F1 Asymmetric is a great tire. I had them on my STI in the stock 18" size. You should pick them up at that price.

You may want to negotiate a bit on those wheels. Those tires are not usable at all. Half the each tire is bald and the wires are showing on one. They're absolutely shot and not worth keeping, not to mention that they're beyond being street legal.

RavSpec is selling them at $1,899 shipped, brand new, in white.

Does Google Chrome have something similar to C4C for FireFox? Already have Chrome, don't want to add a 3rd internet source on my computer just fo C4C.
