    With four kids 6 n under....justification is not as easy as it was previously.

    Day off so a lil bit of interior cleaning on the car seems like a good thing to do for it today.

    The adjustable panhard rod decided to “adjust” itself out of the rod end, on I-95, this morning.

    Tow truck driver hooked the tow up in under three minutes.

    Threads are gone. Getting a replacement from UMI that’ll be in tomorrow; three days faster than a cheap aftermarket replacement part (and less cost).

    Wow. How does it "turn" to unthread when it's connected at both ends? That seems odd to me. Glad you got it sorted out without too much trouble.

    Wait... those actually work for you? Whenever I'm done with one there's always a ragged thumb-sized hole in the front of it...

    Then again, might explain why my boys are such studs.

    The way it works at our house is that I only upgrade what needs to be replaced. Given a 20-year old car at this point, a lot of the car has been swapped for better stuff.

    Pit crew in a few years....














    Lots of clearance with stock rear brakes






    And glad I pulled my wheel to try these on, found I broke my LCA relocation bracket on the drivers side........again.

    Nice looking wheels, what size, and how much weight?

    Thermal expansion/contraction, plus stress from suspension load?

    Just a W.A.G., on my part. Was on the car since 2015.

    I am putting some blue loctite on it this time, and I am going to build a “Panhard loop”, just in case.

    BTW, found some rust spots on the bottom of my car, I’m thinking that the local guys should get together for a “Spring cleaning” & “Anti-Rust” social soon, maybe rent one of those garages that you can use the lifts, and air compressors to DIY stuff.

    sound like a good ideer?

    Break shit...I look at it as product testing

    They are 15"x10" and weigh a hair shy under 20 lbs.


    Also the LCA break probably came from the track last Friday night. I even think I know when it broke cause on one run I got sideways on a run.

    I am surprised that the wheels would support the those rotors and the calipers.

    Are you referring to the new wheels then no they will not fit, my Yr1 Snowflake 17x9's barely fit and I had to do some grinding on the C5 calibers to clearance them. Those 15x10's wheels are for the rear only. I'm looking at several of their other wheel sizes for the front. They have a 17x4.5 which will be only for a track setup. They have a 17.7 and an 18x8 and 18x10 that will fit in the front.

    I'm partial to the 18x8 because that will let me still run a 255 tire up front if I decide to get a send set of wheels for street use.
