    Well, here's my ride now.

    This car isn't really a project yet, but I have been slowly tweaking it. Hopefully this summer she'll be rollin' on some gunmetal 18x10.5s out back and 9.5s in front.

    Before 20 and 25mm spacers:





    After spacers:

    I tried to edit some info in my first post, but the editor was goofing up on me.

    Hks lookalike exhaust (real deal costs 1600 bucks ouch), slotted and dimpled rotors with dust free pads, tailight tint, window tint, and some bulbs/reflectors to eliminate any amber colored stuff.

    Those certainly set the car up far better - subtle changes really build to substantial effect. What year is she and when did you get her?

    I got her in august of '09 with 27,000 miles, now she has 47,000. I've been sockin payments and remodeling the house so the good stuff has to wait.....almost paid off. It's an 03 touring edition. My computer was recently wiped so I'm working on getting some more new pics up.

    Man, I have a set of wheels in my garage that would look so sweet on that car. Too bad we live so far away from each other. Hehe.

    Got pics and/or specs? The ones I've selected will literally miss my 1/4 panel by 3-5 mm, but I may roll the 1/4 panels and go with another 10-15mm of offset. My goal is to have them out where they are now, but with 2.5" more rubber inside the rear wheel well, and 1.5" more in front.

    Well, it is just a 3.5 liter na v6, and 14.1 @ 100 mph ain't bad for a 3300 lb car with a 235lb driver.
    She'll be getting modded eventually.

    Btw Bob, good luck keeping up with me in the corners

    they are pretty light not gonna lie. There the R/T wheels for my car though. i just wish they were a little wider and a 15 so tires with a wider footprint are easier to find lol

    Cedar point was awesome! I live 1/2 an hour Darien lake, but Cedar point blows that place away. The top thrill dragster is something I could do all day.

    those wheels are pretty darn sweet.









    did you ride the dragster front seat? its the only way to make it worth while trust me. front seat is like 40X better because you get the wind in your face, nothing blocking your view, you get the water from the launch cable in your face, best experience ever. but i must say as cool as the dragster is i like millenium force more because its not 10 seconds long lol. pretty much anything there front seat is usually worth the extra wait. but i mean we used to get season passes and go every day in the summer when i was little.

    its cool, but for the most part its just over played for me being local lol. the biggest thing i hate is all the traffic it brings lol

    We lucked out with the waiting in line, I think the longest wait was about 25 minutes, and we hit just about everything except the mantis and maverick. Unfortunately we had to hurry along due to in-laws and their children, but at least I rode the dragster twice.
