    eBay. They're used OEM ones. Made a post about them here. Haha.

    Agreed. They're a good street tire, they're cheap, and they last a while. Just not what I need at this power level.

    Nice! M&H is legit. Even big power RWD guys hook with M&H DR's on the street.
    Didn't you run your lowest ET with the MT street radials? Is that because they were easier to launch than the Hoosier BP slicks? Do you think these will be faster on the strip than the slicks?

    I only ran the Mickey's at Proving Grounds when I did my best times. Tried the slicks at Rock Falls but it was 40° and they didn't hook. My best 60' on slicks is better than on radials so I do think the slicks can still get me a better time.

    I envy how quiet your car seems for having such a diminutive exhaust system. Glad to see it's alive and well!

    That pic from the side with the doors open looks pretty badass Ben.

    No plans for nitrous at this point. Currently have one button for the horn and want to use the other for rolling anti lag but I haven't set it up.

    I have had the 04 tail lights since fall of 2014. I think they look way better. 750WHP is what it was at last year. No change in power.

    Much cheaper than the RPF1 caps. Might have to paint them someday but it's not a high priority.
