If I feel up to it, I may try and install my Metra Amplified Antenna (like Leo's) tomorrow. But if it rains, I'm scrubbing the mission.


Leo- Be safe out on the track. Here's your co-pilot for tonight..

I think I'm going to go with these to match my springs:

http://www.steeda.com/products/steed...ble_shocks.php

Maybe I'll just get the struts and not the rear shocks.

Here's a link about them and Steeda says they are a great match for the Ultra Lite springs:

Way cheaper than D-Specs and so far the only brand that lets you buy just the struts.

Per Steeda... "They are stiffer than D-specs at their softest setting."

If you're looking at getting rid of the 'busy' ride, these Steeda's may not do it.

Too bad, so sad!

I have a couple KK's in my area that's open for business.

I saw that, but I don't think we would want the D-Specs at their softest setting for our cars. Firm (or stiff) and "busy" are two different things. I don't mind firm. But I want a strut and/or shock that dampens properly and the stock ones aren't doing that - they aren't designed for lowered cars. They are out of their operating range and the rebound is not correct - that's where the "busy" comes in to play. If the ride is a little firmer but dampens properly, then that would be great.

That's why I hated the ride in my '03 GT with the Eibach Pros. It handled great, but sucked over bumps and uneven roads.

We believe our Steeda springs are the best for retaining ride quality... maybe these struts and shocks are naturally the next mod.

Also per Steeda: "lifetime warranty, best ride quality in their class"

I'll watch that thread (maybe even bump it along a little) and see if anybody that has them chimes in.

It could very well be...

That's the best thing, user opinions. Although it may be a little while before people start buying them.

Clerk/Carrier, ETC test. Yes that's with the Vet Pref included.

Oh come on you can do the mod in the garage so who cares if it's raining.

Just got back from the track where I won first place in the Fast Street class (9.00-9.99) Got the closest to 9.0 with a 9.018!! Prize was a nice huge trophy. Finally a 1st place trophy all though not for a car show. I also get my pic and name on Racelegal.com as well as my name in the SD paper which is pretty cool I think. The wife took a couple of vids which I'll have to figure out how to upload. Luckily she caught my winning run. Fastest run of the night was a 8.8.

Here's some pics of the trophy.

OK guys here's the pics of the door liner I got from Donna. Now be honest is it or ? Really want an honest answer as I don't want to have something that's on the car.

Install process. (Takes about a minute per door.)

Where two ends meet.

Before

After

Congrats on the win! We all want to see those vids - get on that!
I like how it says "Race Track, Not Street".

Can you take a pic through the car to the door? Then we can see how it goes along with the rest of the interior.

Leo, I have to back out from the garage to park it in the center (so both doors can swing wide open), so if it's going to rain later today... I'm scrubbin'.

Congrats on your 1st Place trophy!
Looks like you're getting pretty good at launching the car consistently.

What did some of the other guys there say about your car? More Shaker questions?

I actually like it on your door panel, it compliments your painted switch plate.

If not for the switch plate, I would've voted against it.

Thanks Tom I'm still trying to figure out how to take the clips off the dvd and on to my pc. I'll try and get a pic with the door closed tomorrow.
