Riding my dad's Ducati 1098 Tricoloré is exactly like that. 140 feels like 70. Oddest sensation.

My friend's ZHZ auto is an absolute dream. Who knew, coming from an American car.

After driving it, and getting in my wife's '10 Mazda 3, I suddenly realized the 3 felt like there was a really slow, old man operating a 5-speed transmission inside of her automatic. Where as the corvette felt like Emilio operating his twin disc with zero *****. You hit that pedal and it just goes. 3 would rev to a couple thousand rpms, then go. Slower.

2 things will likely happen:

-I find someone that wants these swagtastic wheels in trade for perfect z06 wheels with perfect tires
-I plastidip these wheels black

The tires are near new, and they are Nitto NT555, and I dunno when was the last time y'all bought 305/20 nittos, but they are not cheap lol.

How could someone put those on over the stock wheels. Stockers are bad ***. I wanted them back in my Z28 days. In gun metal.

I got the car from a 77 year old woman.
Well technically her son, but it was her car, he just helped sell it.

The license plate on it read DABIRD which she told me stood for tweety bird

As long as they glow in the dark, works for me
This thing is nuts btw, spins at will in 1st, and sometimes even in 2nd, and also when shifting fast into 3rd. I basically never turn off the traction control on it.

Anyways, I had the hardtop window seal re-installed after paint on the MSM. Was going to wire in the new headunit and install the wideband/boost gauge today but got all lazy and didn't lol.

Alright, so last week the car got tinted, so that's done.

today we fabricated the intercooler with solid side brackets just like FAB9



it fits and holds so solid that it's like part of the car's structure lol.
love how it looks too




next we threw on the downpipe



kept stock exhaust on for now.

I gotta say: I LOVE HOW IT SOUNDS NOW.

I am seriously considering not even installing a full exhaust now. This is perfect for daily driving. It's much louder than stock, yet really deep and really subtle.

Love it.

Once the MS3-Pro and ID725's and e85 goes in and is tuned, I think this car will be 100% done, I have absolutely no desire to do anything else, it is simply perfect for daily driving.
