Re: Pros & Cons of stock 18x9” with 265/35s

I ran a square arc-8 9.5 et35 setup for a while. It was great on the track, didn’t like it on the street tbh. Ended up switching to a staggered setup. I think it looks better too

Re: The Official E46 M3 Oil Analysis Results Thread

The best advice you're going to get is to change your rod bearings.

At 100k w/ track miles you're well into the zone where you're not prematurely changing them.

Re: Autocar just voted the CSL the best M-car EVER!

I'm going to have my current M3, CSL, and a GT3.

Re: APEX Forged Wheels

I was under the impression the forged wheels would be lighter. Guess I'm sticking with my flow formed.

Re: Silver Grey Slicktop Alert

CSL trunk could have been installed, PO sold the stock trunk, and then retrofitted another trunk when they put it back up for sale.

Re: What did you do to/for your ///M today?

Definitely, I've seen some newer cars with BFD lights. So hopefully manufacturers start putting them in by default across their lineup sooner than later.

Washed it.

I also coded the BFD lights last week! It's a pretty cool feature. Video is on my instagram.

Re: Oil return line bolt, broke it.

Even if it is a bit smaller, it's a return line. I'd only be concerned if it was a pressure line.

Re: Rev Limiter Not Kicking In?

My shift lights barely even work at first gear. And I feel like my rev limiter kicked in at 7900 rpm before tune and 8000 post tune (tune increased limiter to 8100). .

Re: 2020 Corvette Stingray Unveiled

I think the C8 is amazing. And this is just the base model that was revealed. I can't wait to see the Z performance models with wider rear fenders. I think it's going to be killer.
