New parts installed

I had my car for a little over a month and so far I have added Roush exhaust, SR lowering springs, BMR panhard bar and some new wheels.

I love the exhaust couldn't be happier. The new stance is great and new wheels to me just make the car.

Nice

Nice I really like the stance but my question is: do you feel like the power is getting to the wheels a little faster?

Wayne, I can't say if it gets there faster but traction does brake loose a lot easier until my tires warm up. When I took it out for a test drive after everything was completed I was running around 35-40 in 2 and hit the throttle to see how much the car would squat and the tires just let loose until traction control kicked in. So I believe it has just changed the way the power is handled.

TREX - Looking Good!!! She's sitting real pretty! I'm loving the wheels as well! If you're still having traction issues I might recommend taking a look at Control Arms to help keep it on the ground. Be sure to have a picture posted up on our product page, she looks great!

I agree some nice Lower Control Arms will be a improvement and a key part to get the power to the road.

I wonder what is the operation temperature of those tires?
I ask because my Eagle F1's Supercar tires do not like temps below 50 degrees, the compound really likes the warmer temperatures.
So I say this since your in Alaska and wondering if that could be a factor?

On that day the temp was around 60-65 degrees. I have the Mickey Thompson tires. I had only driven around two miles when I gave it a little gas

As I continued to drive the grip was much better. I still will look into getting some control arms.

Thanks for the info as I have looked at the Mickey's for future replacement, plus I like doing business with companies based here in the USA and they are based here in Ohio
If you could let us know how they hold up because being a newer product line I'm sure others are curious as well.
