  1. Since seibon seems to be the only company so far to offer a carbon fiber rear diffuser, I know trucarbon is about to come out with one as well, just thought I'd give everyone a heads up that seibon themselves told me this and also the other companies aren't any better but if you get these pieces they will yellow within a year because of the heat from the exhaust. So DO NOT BUY THEM or you will be sorry. Unless APR or Shelby comes out with one that has a proper clear coat/gel coat to protect from heat stay away from these pieces.
  2. Idkkk he seems to operating with some misguided attitude when I asked a simple question. But guess I'll just have to see all of these "awesome" area 52 projects he's got going on.
  3. haha but what about other people who get too impatient? oh nvm idk why I bother....another useless thread. (too bad we don't have the option to delete our own threads)
  4. Why is it a soap opera if you announce what is coming out? Think of it like an online SEMA if you will. It will keep those of us who are debating going to other vendors to get the parts. What if I bought a part from say lethal only to find out a week later you come out with something better? That wouldn't be very nice.
  5. I'm hoping to not get a vague unhelpful answer lol. we'll see.
  6. Well Jer now that Alcoas are done why don't you share a little of what is coming down the road in the next 6 months and what you have plans for? Unless this is "top secret' info...... Probably would be great to mention some stuff to peak some interest again and get another fire started.
  7. Jer when are coolant tanks for 2013 gt500s going to be made? Or at least directions on how to get the older tanks to work?
  8. lol no you are wrong. When he originally posted this video the 14 were just starting production. This is a repost. He posted that same video like 3 months ago calling it a 2014 in another thread.
  9. Does insurance cover this? lol I would be so pissed.
  10. Who lets you build a laptop from scratch like a desktop? I would do that if that was an option. And I found out the falcon NW laptop is the old generation clevo so I'm not getting it anymore. I'm trying to decide between the MSI gt60 and the sager np9150/ mythologic pollux laptop which is the new clevo. No point paying 3750 for an older generation laptop with less performance just because it says falcon on it and I can paint it to make it look nice. I'm trying to decide if I want to pay 3100 for the better equiped MSI or pay 2700 and forgo the 680m graphics card for a 675m.
  11. Well lets go by cheapest prices for all parts HRE p40: 1500 per wheel so 6000 for set. 2013 TPMS from tousley: was 675 I think? mounting/balancing: Around 150-200 usually PSS tires: are 1700 from tire rack Tuner lug nuts: 200 HRE center caps: free Total: About 8700-8800 dollars. What I paid? 6950 for everything. I got a discount on the wheels, 2013 TPMS for free, tuner lugs for free, and tires for like 800 bucks, and mounting and balancing, shipping, and tax all free. Gerry from custom wheels for less is the best to do business with. Though in the case of my set, him and wheels boutique worked together to get this deal.
  12. Maybe they think you are doing it stock on race gas? Do they know the power mods you added?
  13. They will be on the car in a few weeks. Trying to get ahold of Bryan so he can get me a set of powder coated red brake calipers so I can put them all on at once but he is hard to get ahold of and apparently he broke his arm too.
  14. Ok falcon is out now. Not worth the extra 1000 dollars of paint and the older platform. So I optioned out the best 15 inch mac and it came out to 3300 the same as sager. Only differences it seems is the sager will have a 670 nvidia car instead of 650 like the mac and will have THX sound and blue ray player. I can't compare screen quality since I have never seen this gamut screen on the sager that everyone says is unbelievable but then again I've never seen a screen quality better than a mac. The mac also claims at this level to still get over 6+ hours of battery life while the sager is at 2-3, which I don't understand how that is possible given how every performance/gaming laptop max maybe gets 4 hours. Maybe mac has developed some new thing? So it is kind of a toss up now on what to get.
  15. These helmets are cool. I'm going to order one when I finally decide to track my car lol.
  16. Will the madness never end? lol. So after some google searching I found out that falcon just rips off the sager/clevo laptops and rebrands them with the falcon name and charges accordingly. I went to xoticpc.com and decked out the new sager np9150 to the same specifications as the falcon but with slightly more upgrades like cooling, picture quality, and screen quality and the total came to 3300 for the sager and the falcon is 3750. So now I am wondering is that cool paint job worth the extra 450? Also it looks like the falcon may be an older sager model that is not for sale anymore I believe on google someone said it was the 8000 series.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_TZU5k2iNY&feature=player_embedded This is a video of the new one that I am looking at. Since I can't go crazy exotic with it like the falcon I was thinking I'd just get it in a gloss black and keep it simple. What do you all think about this now?
  17. 40 front and 60 rear. The rear is good enough all the way for a 315 tire to not rub.
  18. Better question to ask is the performance difference between the willwoods and the 13 OEM brakes that no one appears to be able to speak educately on.
  19. This is true. The shelby is already black. How about ferrari red? http://www.falcon-nw.com/sites/default/files/tlxv5_ferrarired_hi.jpg Or candy red? http://www.falcon-nw.com/sites/default/files/tlx4_candy_red-closed-hi.jpg If I were to get either the red or blue what color should I have the bottom part be? I think all blue or red would be too much and I don't want the bottom to just be plain black plastic. There is also their signature rain effect that can be done with any color. Here it is in black. http://www.falcon-nw.com/sites/default/files/tlxv6-blackrain-hi.jpg And again in teal the most common color http://www.falcon-nw.com/sites/default/files/tlxv6-tealrain-hi.jpg Here is green http://www.falcon-nw.com/sites/default/files/tlxv5_greenrain_hi.jpg
  20. Hmmmmm well now black is in the majority. I guess it is between the aston martin matte blue and the metalic black. I wonder which will win? lol
  21. The roush suspension is springs, billet rubber bushing LCA, and the UCA that looks the same as OEM UCA but is a little beefier and has a smaller rubber bushing. I think you also get tires. But to really be better I would say they would need an adjustable coil over set up and something beyond just rubber bushings. I mean it is kinda hard to do much with a live axle suspension without doing spherical bearings and heim joints. The reason the roush really would outperform the shelby in turning is because of the 100 pounds less weight hanging off the noise. But again the roush unless now it is stage 3 doesn't have the kick the shelby has. Plus the styling of the roush isn't better than the shelby anymore. For 07-2010 I would rather have the roush. I mean they don't look bad at all now but the 13 just looks better IMO. Though I wonder how the shelby will finally handle once my PSS tires go on, it would probably destroy any roush after that.
