I'm realizing that Jerry...never thought I did but had a couple people mention that so I guess I need to spend sometime at the dragstrip or jus play around on the on ramps. If you could,can u make a vid of you daily driving so I can see how it's suppose to look? Any pointers to make the driver better only make the car better to drive so I'm open to criticism. And thanks,it'll be awhile til I can have the whole car painted,but am happy with the hood n mirrors for now. Front bumper is next to see paint. Then got to fix my roof n trunk from my rattle can job :/

I'll take a video tomorrow if I remember to. Daily driving isn't really the issue it's when you're giving it the business.

Thank you sir :) I'll try to get another vid of me attempting to shift faster. Dumb question, when your shifting quickly or wot do you take it out of gear before you press the clutch to put it in the next gear? Or is it jus a finess thing where I got to time it correctly to blip the clutch and shift? Thanks for any input. Hopefully next year I'm gonna hit up one of the local tracks for a track day to get some more seat time.

I did however remove the SRT rear bumper and install the stock one aswell as install the Euro tails. Got them all wired up correctly.. Heres a lil vid to show them working...not the best video ever but you get the idea :D

:shock:

it should all be one smooth movement...
push clutch in at the same time you let off the gas... throw it in the next gear at desired speed (depending on the situation) then hit the gas a split second before letting the clutch back out...

and to "blip" the clutch is technically just slipping it a tad on purpose to keep engine rpms higher, if I am to understand the terminology...

If I'm accelerating I don't lift off the gas, just jump on the clutch, shift, and release the clutch. Still having trouble getting a clear video of it. It's also called "WOT shifting" or "Power shifting".

Exactly. Based on the spring rates it'll be just that. Nothing aggressive enough to push the car.

I am hoping to read enough reviews to tell me that the ride is gentle compared to the BC's on my other 2GN.

How low are you dropping it? Those look like 16's, yes?
Drive it like you stole it, and work on it like you married it.

For anyone else who may be wondering, Racelands come in at 285-F and 200-R.

KW Variant 2s, which feel damn near stock, are 340-F and 170-R. The front will be pretty soft and the rears will feel about stock. Keep that in mind when you're tucking tire that they're going to have a fair amount of give to them.

Also, remove those damn helper springs :lol:
