    How to mount Kumho Ecsta XS?

    I think what is more important is which half of the tire is on the outside...not necessarily the pattern of the direction of the tread. The tire looks to be divided in thirds by different "block" patterns due to handling the cornering aspect of the tire versus the high speed aspect versus the...

    Love at first site....

    There are a few that are for sale (2006 SRT10 Coupes) in the classified for under 55K. Most are VCA members and the cars should be in good shape. One of the coupes have a Corsa exhaust and is selling for 54K. Best of luck.

    How to mount Kumho Ecsta XS?

    Looking at the pictures from Tire Rack...there seems to be a printed side that states "outside". Upon ordering the tires from Tire doesnt specify left front, right rear, would figure that as long as the word "outside" is on the outside, you are good to go...

    Wheels off of Gen II on Gen III?

    I would assume that if the CCW wheels were built for the GenII with having a BBK installed in mind, then it would probably fit. Though I dont think that the wheel would fit if it wasnt since the calipers on the GenIII are larger/thicker. At the same time, the offsets might be different since I...

    Lightweight Lug nuts - do these fit a 2000 GTS?

    In SCCA solo II the aluminum ones least I did. While I was looking at many different lug nut options due to the color choices (for the Viper)....the aluminum ones are a bit more "brittle". If you use an impact wrench on them...odds are you will crack them. The open ended ones...

    Buying new wheels... All feedback would be GREATLY appreciated!

    This is a picture of my Viper: And yes...all you need to do is jack the car up and replace with the new tire and rim. The larger the rim...the smaller the sidewall. Has to be that way to...

    New Shoes are here

    Cant remember what the stock offset are. But +50/+50 is the most "you" probably can go with a Gen III. This is on a 19" rim with 11" front and 13" rear. Gen II's I think has a little more play...based on his Gen III versus my Gen II fitment. 20's would have to be a slightly narrower rim if...

    Buying new wheels... All feedback would be GREATLY appreciated!

    I think it depends. What kind of driving do you do? Whats the road conditions? How much money do you have? If you are going for just the looks....then go 20's. Tires would be a little limited....I agree with Chuck that you would be better of in getting larger rotors and calipers since they...

    Shags. Glad that you got it fixed okay. I too had the same issue when my car first arrived here. Anyhow, as far as I know, yes we are still planning to head down to the pier this coming Saturday the 10th. Thinking of meeting up somewhere before we head down though. Give us a call before...

    Over due pics

    LOL. OMG!! I am not the only one that did it then. :D When my car was coming from San Diego, I had them cover the front, the sides, and the lip of the rims to minimize any scratches. Luckily, there were none at all. Congrats on the car and keep the shiny side up.

    Do you wax your powdercoated wheels?

    I agree on the Zaino. Never knew that the heat breaks down the other types of natural polishes/waxes. I just always used Zaino for the car and the powdercoated rims. Worked on my Rays wheels and works on the HRE's as well. When it gets a little dirty, I just use the Mothers Quick Detail and...

    Whats best for polished alluminum???

    I have used the Mothers Billet and I also use Wenol. The Wenol seems to be a little stronger in cutting through the water spots....but I think that I would agree with everyone in that you would need to use the mini power ball or something like that to get the desired effect that you are looking...

    Gm Or Nissan-which Would Be Better For Viper

    As an American citizen and a car enthusiast, I can understand somethings yes. But then again as mentioned, the one that will put out a better product will be the one that has mode pride and care in their work. Ultimately the problems in a companies failing infrastucture could be traced to just...

    Best Battery for Viper??

    Everyone says Sears Gold series...or was it Platinum. Ahh it was Platinum. It has 880 CCA at 0 degrees F vs the Gold CCA 795. I replaced my old battery with a Gold series and only get to run it on the far *knock on wood* it has been very reliable and fires up every time...

    Gm Or Nissan-which Would Be Better For Viper

    Re: Gm Or Nissan-which Would Be Better For Vipert Okay, I am typing from a Blackberry, so response might be a little jumbled, pardon. Honestly I can't track the car the way that it was meant to be. The track here closed, and the SCCA course really favors smaller cars like Miatas and the like...
