Clean build brotha. Question, from the AWD to the RWD, is there much difference playing with the suspension and tire spacing. I am so new to this modding game.

when it comes to RWD it is easier to run more off a staggered setup with less issue. While with a AWD setup its harder to run a staggered setup because the rolling diameter needs to be the same for all four wheels or off by 0.01 I believe for it to work. I personally prefer to run a squared setup with spacers to give it more of a nice look.

Love it. Simple yet effective. I may copy you but use some Plastidip I have left over.

I actually got the spoiler off ebay about a year ago. with the fitment it was pretty good. I advise heating it and pushing it down or putting something on the edges to keep it in place and using some double sided tape to hold it on.

Default 2017 Updated

This year I didn't do much, besides just swapping my coilovers with airlift 3p system. Overall I can say the drive is amazing on bags and very comfortable as a daily summer car it makes it so easy to go over speed bumps or deal with inclines in the road and parking the car an walking away is so much sweeter.





Next year I am planning of going with some more aggressive wheels thinking of running 18X10.5 with a +24 offset in the front and +22 offset in the rear. Also a new front lip I bought this year that I unfortunately didn't get to paint on time. As well as install some fsport sway bars and camber kit I had acquired this past fall. Even looking into possibly running two custom subs in the trunk and upgrading the tank setup as well.

Default 2018 Update

Hi All,

Just thought I would share an update on my car for this year.

This year I got a new set of wheels some Weds Orden's, a new front and rear lip which I molded to the car, and installed some suspension components as well.
