Leo- The wheel color combo, even the deep dish, works very well with your car.
From a performance standpoint, good choice with staying with the 18's.
From an overall appearance standpoint, IMO, the 20's would've worked a wee bit better. And before the gang jumps on my ***, Leo and I already discussed this point.

I still would like to mount your wheels on one side of my car to see how the Anthacites match up against the TR w/white stripes.


Fly- I know why you're pulling the all nighter.
Honestly, a power nap of 3-4 hours will be all you need, then head to the show or catch a ride with me (I'm not planning on staying the entire time).

I think the antracites might clash, seems like there'd be too many tones, but I'd have to see...
but then to think, this is probably one of the best looking red S197's I've seen, and I'm not really a fan of razors

Leo, setup looks great......


Well I got my new BMR adjustable LCAs installed, as well as the Steeda adjustable UCA. Easy installs for both, believe it or not the toughest thing is adjusting the UCA while it's on the car- I almost think it would be easier to take it all the way back out to adjust it.

Thanks everybody.

Bill-No prob. Maybe the weekend I'm down there getting my blower installed we can do the test fit. Like I told you over the phone I am happy with the 18's but do think the 20's would be just that much better. Never thought I'd say I like 20's over 18's.

Tom-I was afraid of that. I think that's the main reason none of us here have messed with the UCA. Seems like a PITA.

Quick status update on all the other crap I'm waiting for..
Injectors, oil return, delete plates, etc (Second shipment of stuff seller of Vortech is sending me.) Should hopefully be here by Friday if not Monday.

IC-Will be here Wednesday then it's off to the plater for polishing.

KB BAP-Will be here by Friday.

Guages- Will be here Monday.

Pillar pod-Arrived today.

Stuff at powdercoater will be ready Friday.

Blower polishing will be ready on Monday.

The razor's are a completely different shade though.

Very true. Very clean. Even has the stock spoiler which I've never liked but it looks good here. Just a nice aggressive drop and some 20" razors.

I think those are the wheels Bill needs. Looks really good Bill. Plus room for the big brake kit!

That's one of my favorite TR pics.

Hard to say what the Anthratcites will look like on my car. Only way for sure is to bolt up Leo's and see what it'll look like.

I do like the silver Razors, but with the power I'm putting down, I'd really like to run 10's in the back.

Either way, I'm still leaning towards the 20's.

the 20s with 305s, I think you said you wanted, would look killer on the TR. Still hoping you can pull together the scratch to get the CS69, or whatever the number of the Shelby's that you like. I really dig how they look and they'd totally set your car apart AND give you some much needed traction.

Still don't know about DRs on the street though, I know you didn't drive it much in the past but how they feel on street driving is If you're upping the planned amount of miles you're gonna put on the car drive someone else's car with DRs on the street and freeway first. You can totally feel how thin the sidewall is and for me take away any confidence I have in the cars ability to corner. .02

+1 I would like to see how they can take that satin finish and make it beautiful.

I dont think a DR would be good on the road, and the rubber on them doesnt make for a very feel good drive either. I'd probably go with a high performance tire, such as a NT555 or KDW2's (my favorite). 20's on this car I think are a little too big, I like a good size sidewall, and it makes the ride smoother.
