What I did this winter, what was on your to do list?
I was on a mission this winter, had allot of plans for small upgrades. With the exception of the stainless steel braided brake lines, I finished everything. I don't have a new signature pic yet with the new wheels.
electric exhaust cutouts
battery relocated to trunk
modified rear suspension to run 12 wide slicks
new Whiteline rear sway bar
brand new rims, tires and slicks for the track
brand new bullit wheels and tires for the road
14 inch Baer front brake kit with EBC red stuff pads.
new Kenwood 7 inch head unit
HDMI interface kit for my iPhone (to display it on the Kenwood)
Got in a couple of track days at NJMP. Ran down and passed a Roush Mustang with a "427" on the hood at least four times in four 30-minute sessions on the first day of a 2-day event (the dry day). Got to drive one hot lap in a new LT1-powered 7-speed Corvette (what an amazing car).
The second day was about like this every single lap ↓↓↓ and running hard in the rain can be way more educational (not to mention a whole lot more fun) than you might think. You'd be surprised how little water actually made it into the car (at a track day it is required that any window next to an occupied seat remain open).
I also settled on the tires I'll be doing future track days on (the Corvette I drove runs on the run-flat version of these things). Now I'm just waiting on four Forgestars to get built (hint: 9.5" GT500 wheels would look positively narrow in a side by side comparison).
'08 GT/5MT (mine)
'10 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT/6MT (hers)
'95 626/V6/5MT (autoX, winter, spare)
'01 Maxima 20AE/5MT (other spare)
