TKE-Teg and I were at Roebling Road last weekend. What and amazing weekend...

Best lap time of 1:27.87. Civic did great; no hiccups, no issues. It needs much stiffer spring rates though...

Great shots! Can't wait to analyze all my data.

Does your car have PASM? If not, how do you like the ride? I found the 19s way too harsh for my preference.

No PASM. My commute is all smooth country roads, so it's not really fair to say. I have no issues with them thus far. Cool thing is that the rears saved 2 lbs a corner; I'd imagine the fronts shaved a lb or so


I do know that my 18"s were already damn terrible through some TN/KY road construction (I-75N) a few weeks back. It pretty much sealed the deal on my thoughts about Bilstein B4 vs B6 in the future: B4 all the way!

When I was test driving Caymans I really didn't like the ride of the ones equipped with 19s. Though I suppose tires can have a lot to do with that as well. The roads around Raleigh are f'ing horrible, crumbling before our eyes these days. I can't even drive through downtown anymore without risking my car's alignment (has been off twice this year). Though I didn't do myself any favors by installing some solid metal mounts at various points in my suspension, but that's besides the point LOL.

Yeah we caught'em! I think. If that photo was taken in Blue group, Hiro and I were more or less faster than everyone. We moved up to White the second day though, and those drivers are faster. (both groups had 1-2 silver 911s).

Hiro, YanthemanV, and I lift my Durango 2.5" two weeks ago.

The Durango has proven fairly capable so far on backwoods logging roads, and pulling a high centered Optima out of a ditch.

Well I was just quoted an astronomical price for replacing the soft top on my car. I get that prices are going to increase over the course of 9 years, but either the car has gotten significantly more difficult to replace the top on since the last time I was quoted or something has gone fucking wonky as hell.

I'm playing in a relatively dead scene, but the 320k+ mile 1990 Honda Wagon is getting a rebuild... Trying to find a machine shop that I can trust is proving a bit more challenging than I thought.

T-Hoff doesn't appear to have the greatest of reviews as of lately, though I know they were the go-to shop 10+ years ago...

Boyettes won't touch imports...

A couple other more local shops haven't called me back after I left messages...

I'm debating just taking it to NAPA Walker off Six-Forks and seeing if they'll rebuild the head and piston match the bores (0.050+ oversized)
