Ask and you shall receive.

Just recently had my buddy do some PS work on a shot of mine...in the process of figuring out what color of PC to go with on the wheels.:hmm:

The bronze looked suprisingly good...I thought.:cool2:

Does look pretty good. Maybe a shade lighter and it would really pop

If he is bored, could he do some PS wheel colors on my car if I sent you a pic?

Randy! Thanks much, and yes I do get religious in it occasionally :lildevil: haha I love my V !

I8ursvt it has H&R springs and the front side wall height is slightly shorter VS the rear. It's in storage but I could get you the part # on the H&R box,and tire sizes if you like.

if you could that would be great! did you have to roll the fenders?

any issues going over speed bumps? that my biggest concern.

No on rolling the fenders as far as I know,the springs were installed prior. If you have headers you need to pay special attention to any and all speed bumps,driveways and approach's. I won't try any speed bumps as a matter fact,now,without headers that shouldn't be to much of a concern?, the stance has its trade offs,handles friggin nice also :lildevil:

crap haha, I'm installing long tubes and cant avoid speed bumps unfortunately. Can you also measure the height of the fenders/wheel wells when you get a chance? Trying to gauge how much drop it really is. looks killer! Thanks a bunch!

P.S. on page 32, post 622, there is a quote of pics with a red V with gold forgstars ;)

Buy some rims on our car in Forza 4! Done!

Forza 4 has our car... and you can mod it with a ton of different wheels and paint the wheels any color you want. If you or anyone has the game they could easily post up some shots, again, in any color

Game ready to go, but I don't have any video capturing hardware for the xbox. I could still give it a try if you guys tell me exactly what you're looking for.

Try this^^^,, infrared V with Forgestars F14's both in high gloss gold and black,then one with flat black if possible?. That would be cool!

Brrr it's -2! Front and rear tires look a little deflated..so measuring off the floor to center of fender approx on the front is 25in. Rear is 25 3/4in.

Front tire size 245/40 rear 245/45 hope this helps.

----------

Took a couple of shots since I was out there, looks like a leaf didn't burn off before storing.. tires are slightly deflated..

Now I make no claim to being good at color matching, but I thought I had done a decent job. It doesn't exactly look that way in the pictures though. All I could do was take pictures of the screen, which in turn seemed to make everything brighter. On another note, Forza doesn't have F14s, so this was the closest wheel I could find. I hope nobody is too disappointed. Hopefully someone else with the game and video capturing equipment will chime in soon.

Lou72, thanks for taking the time to do that. I'll be doing my stockers black for the time being as well when it warms up.

Just for comparison what's your tire size and same measurement as I took?

27" front, 27.75" rear with 245/45/18. So you have about 2" drop.

I'd really to only go down 1" to help clear speedbumps and the longtubes. Guess I might have to go with coilovers. Your car does look sweet though!

Mn800r
02-18-13, 09:43 PM
^^ keep in mind my tires would increase my measurement by at least 1/2 in. Fully aired. But thanks for taking those measurements and the plug!. Take it easy!
