Might be grabbing a SC for the M next week so I can keep up with Max

Excuse the camera phone quality pics, I really need to invest in a good camera:









I found a company that will make white rubber letters for any tire make/model so I had them send me a set for my new Federals. You krazy glue them on one at a time which is why it took so long, plus you have to make sure they're straight so it doesn't look like a 6 year old did it. $25 per tire, it was worth it for me. Looks much better in person and in the sun.

What supercharger are you going with? Should be quite a beast after that.

Yeah Dupli-Color sells paint pens, which is what I was going to try first since they're so cheap, but I heard of people having to redo theirs all the time so I decided on the rubber letters. I'll end up doing it again next time I buy tires too.

Oh please. I'm sure you'd keep up and then pass me haha. Those things are absolutely retarded on even a couple of lbs. I really hope you do. That'd be downright NASTY.

Okay, I need your opinions people. I'll be running an open EWG dump with my new setup. Should I just dump it the next to the downpipe like everyone does? Or should I route it somewhere cool?

Some people said out of the fender but i'm not sure I want to do that. Any cool ideas?

Looking at the VF620 kits.

I don't know about that. I've seen a few cars trapping in the high 120's, but they still only run low 11's. They are beastly on the top end though. You'd probably take me off the line, but I'd catch up with more WHP up top.

I just am having a hard time stomaching the investment, although it seems as though they are pretty easy to resell.

Not sure where else you can go from there without dumping behind the tire. That would be a bit sketchy too. I'd just do the standard dump.

I thinkkkkk this pretty much says it all.


That would be SO sick man. Car would be such an animal. I'm sure they're in high demand, hence the easy re-sell. I don't think you'd regret it.

And maybe you're right about the dump.

Did you buy a battery?

If you are looking to go lightweight I have a Braille tray for the STI. It should just need a new battery. Not sure if it is for the 08+ though

Not yet. How did you like your small battery? It obviously won't be driven everyday. Did it hold a charge fairly well?

WHY on EARTH would I want to cruise next to you? You'd be fist pumping too hard you'd stop paying attention and crash right into me. I'm PRAYING my car is ready for WBM. It'll need to be well broken in before I make the 1 hour 45 minute trip on the highway with the new motor, so unfortunately for me it'll be a last minute decision. Right now it's still looking like it wont be ready.

Anyone near Wallingford? Quality Subaru has a nice looking used FXT that I'm interested in but don't want to make the 2 hour trip if its beat. Anyone willing to take a look at it for me?

Sorry man, not really. Love to help out though.

Anyone looking for 09 STI gold BBS, mint? I'm looking to trade up to an aggressive wheel.

Thanks man! Glad to hear it since I spent an entire Friday night/Saturday morning getting it done. What does your WRX look like? I probably see you all the time if you live in the area.

Anyone know anyone looking for a minty E92 335i?

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=13962775

This belongs to the same guy that owned Mac's Vette. He bought it after getting rid of the Vette for something more practical. With a little one on the way he is now in search of a 4-door 335i.

It was actually out of Johnny's old car. He did have issues if it sat for long periods, but typically just kept a trickle charger on it. Only issues seemed to be when it was sitting for long periods.

I still have the battery as well, however I tried to sell it to someone and he said he couldn't get it to take a charge off his alternator. I told him to put a trickle charger on it but he didn't want to go through the trouble. It probably just needs a deep trickle charge.

Wallingford is a pretty long ways away from Danbury. Even for me it is probably 30 minutes each way.

Greg, I have an idea. Throw me the battery and tray, if it doesn't work I'll give it back, if it works after some fiddling, I can toss you money for both? Let me know if that works for you. You know i'm good for it.
