Car looks great.

If you haven't already, you could try the wheel/tire and brake forum for your question.

WOW WOW WOW, IM A BELIEVER. All I can say is LS power is awesome, truly big block power in a smaller light weight package and responsive is an understatement. Four days ago I installed 500 lb springs in the chassis to get the ride height where I wanted it and perhaps make the car a little more sporty in the corners. It worked out well and dont think I went to heavy since the ride is very nice. What an end to a week, I hired master tuner Ed Hutchings(edcmat-l1) to tune my LS7. Super nice guy, spent a couple days with him at my house, we fought off the rain and he did what he does best tune the engine/car. He just flat out knows what he's doing and knows what the engine needs. When I say master tuner Im not kidding, after tuning hundreds of cars his experiance and knowledge base of all the different software packages and the hardware is extensive. His stories of his tuning trips to China, Germany, and Austria are incredable. Ed, I can't thankyou enough, I learned a bunch of things that I didn't know, and it was a pleasure having you. Ed lives in the Virginia Beach area so if you guys are looking for a tune, I highly recomend you look him up.

I still cant believe how the car handles, the DSE sub and Quad link are a killer combo. Im on overload, got a few little thing to sort out but overall the car is awesome!

Rich

Thanks- Just took my 20 year old son out for a ride, 2nd to 3rd shift, the friggin car flys, crazy how quick it accelerates.

No problem, its a stock gm color, Torch red, PPG deltron 2000 brand code 4230, also none as redline red.

Thanks again Rich

Hey Todd, I wanted to let you know the Liberty prepped 600 is awesome, its getting smoother with every shift, only 20 miles on it. Its got a 5.0 shifter that they set up as well and the throws are so short. Its a world of difference from the stock 600 in my 67.

BTW we signed a bunch of papers today and made an offer, they did get the short sale approval from there banks. It will get interesting this week, thanks again

Rich
