Thanks. I've seen some tinted tail lights, but those look different for some reason. I can't put my finger on it.

Do you notice any performance differences with the k&n filter?

Love your sig


How did it feel at 122? stable or was it nervous?

Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...

Ooh I'll have to update all of last week.

Thursday: Swapped out the michelins for Dunlop Star Specs 225/45/R17's on stock wheels. Much more grippy, but the rear end doesn't kick out as much
:,(.

Tire shop had a bit of a time getting the 225's on but I think 235's might have been doable,

Saturday: Drove the piss out of it at an autocross in 103 degree heat. Star Specs are a vast improvement, but started to overheat in the extremely hot surface temps. Already have a little tread chunking on me :P

Gave it a quick wash but need to find a time to give it a bit more TLC, lots of bugs from long roadtrip.

Sunday: another autocross, slightly more reasonable 92 degree temperatures, no overheating on the Star Specs, still needs a driver mod though

Debating whether to get the turn down pipe for race days. Also at some point I'll get around to window tint and debadge but maybe not this week. Another two autocross events this weekend!
