Put on 10mm spacers & extended studs courtesy of Z1. The old TEs were +15 and i kinda had thoughts of putting a spacer on. The new TEs are +22 so it sunk in 7mm more.

Im pretty happy with the look in the rear now.

I genuinely can't wait until StanceNation next week. Not even the show, just getting out of this shitty farm town i live in. Granted, i can blast down these deserted farm roads, but i miss civilization.

The base held its semi-annual air show & it was a chance for me to walk around some planes i used to fly on. The sights & the smells brought back some memories. oh nastolgia!

Florida brought out an MC-130 Talon II

IMG_1112 by sofa king, on Flickr




Flying for Special Operations was certainly difficult .If you look at the history of MC-130 crashes you'll see why. I didn't want to devote my life to the Air Force anymore & ultimately got out, but theres parts i miss.

Heres a couple pics i took while doing my time.
Sorry i didn't take you for a ride StuLax

The ARP studs a super long and you have to remove the ebrake (which I had to do for my previous extended studs too) but for the ARP they are so long the only way they fit is removing the ebrake cable bracket (the 3 bolts I was referring to) and fit the studs through there

Its always nice to hang with people that have the same sort of passion you do. Stance Nation was fun. Long ****ing day though, Roll-in was @ 8 am and the show ended at 7 pm. whew! No complaints though.

It was a pleasure driving on freeways w/ on ramps & overpasses, Damn i miss living in a city. Tearing up & down DFW was awesome!

IMG_1257 by sofa king, on Flickr





Showed up @ 8am and got to cleaning. A 6 hour drive through west Texas left its mark on the car. But it was looking glossy as **** under the lights.

Took this home. I was genuinely shocked! I was fully expecting nothing but just the pleasure of being allowed to participate in the show. Its truly enough for me to watch people look over the car & give me a thumbs up.

Overall, good weekend!
