Nothing like taking quality wheels and immediately effing them up...
Interested to see where your final curb weight comes to after removing everything.

At least it's a simple peel off, still quality wheels underneath

Love it. Really awesome to see someone tear into it with no ******. I want to know how you'd do in the 1/4 with the weight and mods you're running. Any plans to hit the track?

originally wanted the gun blue but didnt want to wait 3 months for them to ship. i think white on silver is not overly flashy

I'd check the newest Nitto UHP Summer tire, the NT555 G2, has a better wet & dry rating than the Invo and has better treadwear
NT555 G2 Summer Ultra High Performance Tire
The SO-4 Bridgestone Pole Positions also get nice reviews.

i like the invos, i would recommend them. theyre quiet, they grip pretty well, and for the price i'm not complaining. although it looks like those new nt555 g2s are a bit better all around and about the same price so those look like a good choice too. i daily my car otherwise id pick up semi slicks lol

Sorry to jack your thread w/ that tire stuff, I almost forgot to say, that new view from the back is super aggressive, really ties in w/ what you're doing, hats-off!

Not much lately.. Finally took the time to put the front grill back on. super ****ty phone pic



next plans are more aggressive sideskirts (i've been looking for some to hack up), diy 'real' chassis mount front splitter, and possible vented fenders. so basically only aero mods for now, and in that order.. but we'll see
