    Oh, and my front ARB reinforcement plates are hot off the waterjet. I'll update my thread on this once I verify it actually fits:

    That's some good shine and reflection. I always find it amazing how clear (rather than amber) signal lenses update a car's look.

    That looks so fast, absolutely insane. That's got to be like triple the speed you can get in a typical car when it comes to cornering speed (and likely acceleration speed). That just solidifies that I have to do karting this summer. I've been offered to drive people's fast and track cars but I would never feel comfortable driving someone else's car as fast as I drive my own, so I can only imagine what that must feel like.

    This looks really similar to what Morehead Speed Works sells.
