Correct, it all is set for me to be sitting in it too. Plus I have moved a lot of weight and need to 're balance the car.

Yea, seems like your cross weight would be balanced when you are in the car.

Can you post the weights with you in it next time ?

Pulled my door cards last week to start seeing what weight I can pull remove from the doors without removing too much of the material. So re-covered the blue I have been slowly removing from the interior. Once these go back in I can happily say the interior is 100% blue fabric free.

I will post pictures after I put them back in also, but that wont be for at least another week or more because of job commitments. Portland Sportsman show all week/weekend.

Finally found the time to toss the door cards back on and take a picture. REALLY happy with how it turned out, I can now say my car is 100% blue free.

Great build and attention to detail with everything! I love those seats and what you have done with the interior! I am also EXTREMELY jealous of your scales, that would be so cool to be able to play around with the weight distribution in my garage haha! Keep it up!

Thank you, I try to keep things clean and simple. I hated the blue with a passion so this was a large box to check off my list.

Having scales is a great benefit and really lets me fine tune the car more. I have a few other tools that I would like to add to my garage such as a portable alignment tool.

OEM two piece drive shaft 24.4lbs:

20150219_112655 by Scuby04STi, on Flickr

New DSS carbon fiber drive shaft 12.2lbs:

20150219_112100 by Scuby04STi, on Flickr

Pulled off the turbo/exhaust so it made it hard to NOT install the new carbon shaft when I was there, took all of 10 minutes. Sorry for the picture quality, camera wouldn't focus in that lighting.

Lol, I have been there. Just remember it wont take you "weekends" more like a few hours to just pull them.

I will be sure to post my opinion on the drive shaft.

Yes, still very happy with my choice.

I HIGHLY recommend the DSS carbon shaft, been able to put a few miles on the car after buttoning things up from fixing some exhaust leaks I developed. Car does everything better, its almost like the shaft is a dampener of sorts to the driveline that has just enough flex to take out the initial shock a shift of hard launch causes. Only thing I don't like is that it took me so long to get one to replace that HEAVY OEM unit.

Been working out a few bugs and thought to do a few VD pulls to reference to my Mustang runs I posted earlier. Same two tunes as before.

92(blue) vs. 101(red) by Scuby04STi, on Flickr

Also of note the 101 pull (red line) did 50-100mph in 4.4 seconds over the span of 4100rpm-7600rpm. I hope to not have any bugs pop back up and take it to the track Sunday to see what it traps.

Feels great, really like how it pulls on 101. The power comes really smooth and just keeps pulling, its feels like its always begging for more throttle/rpm.
