I got them like a month ago or so Always one of my fav wheels and I found them for cheap so I jumped on them! I would LOVE to help you except for that 5 hour difference Hope to seriously see you over here. It looks like Chea is coming too from FDub so you might want to get in touch with him about caravaning...

well guys its not lookin good. i got an email from chris at understeer and he told me the exhaust is going to take a 7-10 day build time. it's my fault cause i didn't anticipate this as i thought they were kept in stock for the particular model i requested. if i'm very lucky it will get here friday but i'm betting on next week. so the drive is off for me.
I also got an email from daniel at flying brick and he told me the camber plates i ordered had to be returned to stock for a manufacturing flaw. He was very nice about it and upgraded me to the full race design as i was going with the hybrid race/street design before. it will be all aluminum now and probably a little more connected but a little harsher as well. I'm actually not bothered by this as i was torn between the two anyhow. but this probably won't be here till thurs or fri either so i dont' see any way to get the car rollin by the drive.

ya i just decided today i'm moving in with some buddies up in shoreline. we're gonna have a 2 car garage and a huge yard/house so gatherings and stuff can definitely start there
we even have a middle school right across the street for parking before drives, we'd just have to go elsewhere for donuts (of course i mean the sweet type of pastry) but we're gonna have a welder as well as an air compressor and we're thinking about a lift soon too!

I live at 15th and 140th, near Jackson golf course. I don't need a cast since my arm is fractured, not completely broken. If it was broken, I would need a cast. I am still working. My arm only hurts when I push or squeeze with a lot of pressure.
