It's hard to make a big purchase like that if there won't be any difference. The kit Leo showed me is a Tokico kit that isn't adjustable. I don't know if the FRPP will provide any additional ride comfort over the stock ones or not. I would think the Tokico's would, but I'll still call to find out.

Something else I do myself!

My camber is dead on the factory specs and toe is definitetly in the window.

--------------------

I talked to the guy about the non-adjustable Tokicos. He said the valving is a little more aggressive than stock (to help control a shorter spring).

He said it's very hard to explain, but even though the ride is rougher from the lowered springs, it will be a more controlled ride. This is where that "busy" feeling that I try describe comes into play.

We do have a rougher ride (however close to stock it actually is, it is rougher due to the shorter springs and higher spring rate). So this kit should help control that more.

That's what I'm hoping either the FRPP or the Tokico's solve. The non-adj Tokico struts are about the same price as the FRPP ones. I guess it depends on which one has a harsher ride.

I wish there was a way to test this stuff out...

Want me to buy the Tokico ones to test out?

Yes.

Ray-Thanks for the honesty most people after spending that kind of cash would lie and say it's the greatest thing ever. I assume it's more than bearable though with the a/c on.

I guess it might be... I don't have a greenhouse effect.

I talked to the guy again and these are not only new, but very very new. So, I think I'll wait a little to get them. He actually agreed and said even though they are from a reputable company, there could be minor problems not found during testing with the non-adjustable struts.

I won't wait too, too long, though.

Messing around with "Picasa2"

Here's some pics I edited with the new software. Nothing groundbreaking but pretty cool IMO.

Pretty cool!

Can you do my car, which, as you know, is black and white... fading half way through the car into black and white (versus color)?

One of these, or both:

Attachment 21401

Attachment 21402

Or can you make the car black and white (versus color) and keep the rest of the picture color?

Very nice! What is the software? (sorry if I missed it earlier)

Here's my car using Photoshop

Sorry Tom this was the best I could do. The way that specific feature works wasn't thought out very well. I can't outline what I want in color/not color. All it allows you to do is increase the size of a circle and move it to the area you want in color. Maybe Rayman knows of a program that will actually let you outline what you want. Anyways here's the pics. Hard to tell on a black and white car. On one pic I did just the front end and on the other the red leather seats.

That's still pretty cool! It is hard to tell on the car where the color ends.

Dang you're a walking (I mean driving) advertisement. How many locations did you put that thing?! That's pretty cool!

Now you need to film me in front of your car along those roads.

Maybe I can get CPKBill to do that.

Very nice!
