  1. I sure did hate this class, thanks for the reminder!
  2. Can you post a pic of your new setup bracketry/mounting location? Considering doing this on my car, so just looking for some inspiration as I think we have the same exact year SCU
  3. I think it’ll be enough to go medium+ speed at night. If you get the XL80s instead of the squadron pro plus the small light bar then I think u can get to fun scary fast speed. Next level faster after that I think requires larger ball size as well as as more lights
  4. Recently put two xl80 and two squadron pros all in amber on the rail... the Chinese light bar was still up top as well . The quality of the light with the Baja designs stuff is so much better it’s laughable. I don’t turn the Chinese bar on anymore, it’s coming off the car. Hands down no contest. No more hunting and guessing what’s out front at night, and the glare is all gone. Really impressed with these BD lights.
  5. Barely caught a snap of this bad boy, wing had that rear end majorly planted! Must handle like an absolute dream while squatting through the turns! <<<Cough cough choke gasp>>
  6. For those who want to DIY, RC cars are a great way to learn the concepts before you spend lots of time and money on your big boy car. I learned a ton about suspension tuning from putting a lot of miles and abuse on a 1/10th scale RC car. Lots of fun and beer drinking with friends in the mean time. It was really insightful to be able to see the differences in setups immediately and for so little effort. Go make some tweaks and run a race or some hot laps or whatever and see how it does through the bumps, off jumps, powering through a turn, drifting a turn, changes in camber, toe in/out, etc. Tweak on it while the batteries charge. Not only was it fairly easy to see the differences with tuning, but also recognizing how your car changes handling when the shocks blow out or something changes. So being able to recognize or feel when something is wrong is really critical. With that knowledge I was able to correct the spring rates on my Tom Pro, getting rid of the bucking bronco syndrome, and then from there messed with the valving and preload, along with of course just having fresh seals and oil whenever I needed. The suspension on that thing was dialed in and the car ripped. With a little experience it takes about an hour to an hour and a half to get each shock off the car and rebuilt then back on plus about $25-30 for seals and oil. At first I did the new seals every season but it really wasn't necessary that often. So for what it's worth, it's really not that hard to do.
  7. Holy smokes old thread resurrection record here! Styles for the win!
  8. These have the internal ballast for that clean look FYI
  9. Plenty of life left in these. A few small nicks in the cups, but no big chunks missing. If yours are newer or older, maybe a little bit of cash to even things up. I’m keeping the wheels located in San Diego thanks!
  10. Good condition, with covers. 50W. Have combo lenses. I’m in Glamis with them this weekend in the washes if anybody cares to come check them out.
