Well, sort of.:bouncy:
Just took the V out of the long Canadian Winter hibernation.
During that, I had time to do some mods: Hotchkis bars, brakes, wheel & tires etc.
I also did a STEALTHV reflash and I have to say - WOW.:worship:
The car seems to have shrunken in size and gained in horsepower. :highfive:
And I do contribute that mainly to the reflash. The individual settings were discussed in detail with Rick. For example, removed certain limiters, electronically lightened flywheel setting, as well as close to another 40 settings. He even tuned it in anticipation of the headers I will be installing soon – with no detrimental side effect so far I may add.
If you want to drive a “new” car for a modest fee, give StealthV a call.

Trackdays - Here I came. :thumbsup:

Brakes and tires are not considered mods unless you upgrade and the parts you pulled are still good, but gathering dust.:histeric:

Other then that it is falls under "routine maintenence".

Unless you are upgrading when they need replacing.

Then it is an "upgrade" and sort of a mod.:confused:

:alchi:

Oh ya, RIC ROCKS!

Hey haven't heard from you in a while.

While I got ya... where'd you get your wing and did it help? Assuming it's adjustable, how do you adjust it other than trial and error (or wind tunnel!)? "Error" could be expensive.

I was planning to post a reply asap, but I noticed my supporter status is gone and I don't know what happened?
So no pics for now.

The wing was only installed during the race (same as grafix).
But I may install it when I go to Mosport this summer. :thumbsup:

Looked like it was fun. The wing is still for asthetic purposes only unless you are seeing over 150mph on a regular basis.

I hope these qualify? :)
