Oh yea, I forgot a lot of you guys have probably driven an older car with a real manual rack....so you already know how what it's like and how to maneuver in parking lots.

Then I changed the car over to handle better and be more comfy for street driving. At 3000 lbs with good suspension and wider stickier tires it sucked. I put the PS back in.
You put yours back in? That's no fun... :P

My current one is doing great though! I basically followed your posts in the rs25 thread and couldn't be happier with it. The new one I'm about to put in is just a neater job with no cut lines.

...but I didn't think that couple hundred pounds and a little wider tires would make such a big difference....and now that you said it's really difficult at 3000 lbs I'm wondering if anyone with a GD or GR could do this?

I was thinking a bugeye with like 225's could manage....but now I'm not sure.
