    strano it is. orderd brakes form him Hawks HPS all around for now.
    Going with the C5 upgrade for now. more affordable. my car is near stock for power so brakes should be good for now.
    Got C5 front brakes coming and new rear D/S rear rotors. got brackets that dont requir me to cut my spindal. Possibly Vogtland springs (crossing fingers), new lower control relo. brackets, Hawk HPS's, and as soon as all that makes its way to me ill order a new adj panhard from umi. slowy coming together. pics will follow and eventully a vid of the beasts new brakes and suspention

    I drove it once with my Cobra. I made a lap and a half on a day it was open to the public before I had motorcylcles all around me and I couldn't do shit except slow and wait for them to pass. Let me know when you are going to go and I will try to make it out there with my Cobra as well. I can't promise anything as work gets busy for me sometimes here but if I am free it is only like a 3-4 hour drive for me.

    I would not change anything on it because it drives perfect for my liking right now. It cuts consistent 1.5 sixty foot times and runs mid to high tens on not a lot of boost and timing. PLUS it is in the US and will never get shipped to Europe unless I get stationed here again! Which most likely won't be happening... Don't tell me you are scared of to try and follow a stock suspended IRS Cobra through there... J/K!

    All done. Pics are uploading as im typing. The brakes look good and feel good so far. Still gotta do the fronts but one less thing to do. The springs where pretty easy since the fronts were already on struts. Im sticking with the oem ones for now until i get bilsteins. But so far they feel and look great. The only hiccup was the swaybar linkage. I broke one

    hmmmm.... what does it cost to ship a car to germany? I would LOVE to drive my hawk on the ring once in my life. If I can make a Euro holiday out of it, so much the better.

    Well if you get stationed here its free lol but Ive had guys here ship their "toys" over and it cost them anywhere from $900ish to $1500ish depending on which company you go with. You are athorized one vehicle to ship oversea and/or back, after that it will cost you.

    considering i'm not military.... it'll cost me lol. but perhaps one day. when my car is all sorted and i hopefully have that kind of cash. I'd love to drive my own car on that monster. Hell, I've done thousands of simulated laps in GT4, GT5, NFS Shift and Forza 3.

    I even did a lap in a go kart!!!

    OH! i also ran an 8:02 in a 2000 Camaro SS. stock except for sport tires. the type with shallow tread.... kinda DOT competition tires.
