Nice warm weather means.......
Summer wheels!! Finally got the borbets on, effectively ET20 with 205/45/16 tires. Looks badass, 225's will be even better. Civic belongs to a good friend of mine, he's waiting for tires for his GT3's.

Good to see someone else is up. Yeah, that housing is getting fixed as soon as we can get some free time from school.

looks sweet.
what valence are you putting on???
ride height is perfect. fenders match the wheels perfect imo.

haha "special needs parking"

i spent 5 yrs in UW but have no idea about the location of the photos.

Looks good, and what's with everyone getting black rims nowadays: Chris, now you.

Drop looks nice, i am almost determined to get IE stage3s too. Only problem is i cannot drop too low on them since my underground parking ramp is steep and my oilpan is gonna be lower than the standard M20 one is. So I guess i'll have to be running extra padding.
If I want only a 1.5" drop all around on IEs, what kind of padding should i use?
Also i heard that lowering an e30 (mac-pherson/semi-trail suspension in general) too much actually hurts the performance. They suggest that 1.6" drop seems to be optimal

please forgive the hijack

Hey Axxe .. where you in brampton yesterday .. I think I seen you at timmies on sandlewood.

Chris de la Cruz 03-13-2006 09:51 AM

damn is that gary's civic?

the borbets look siick man. a little early for summers though? :D its going to freezing this week :D

Burger King: Early "is" air damn, flat black, and the diving boards are going flat black too.

Static: Glad someone noticed the special needs parking. It's the back parking lot of the insurance company located on Westmount, just north of Erb (right on the intersection with William). Honestly though, if I had to do it again, I'd go with GC's. Linear springs + infinite height adjustment = win, especially with your lower oil pan.

Blades: Yup, I went through the drivethrough around 7-ish on my way to Waterloo.

Cyborg number guy (AKA Chrome :D): No, that's not Gary's car, his is silver. This is my classmate and roomie Arash. And I don't care about temps, the 'Vic still has winters on, and we drive that (burns a lot less gas in the city).

Thanks for the kind words guys, and FYI, it looks 100x more badass in person :)
