Wow got another tune from my tuner. Just added timing. Car pulls a bit harder now. AFR's are spot on around 11.4 to 11.5. Me likey!

It just so happened I came across a white Focus RS before doing my first pull on this revision haha! So of course he wanted to play as did I. Just a heads up this is a dead portion of the interstate outside of town since I live in a rural area so it was perfect with no traffic. Got up next to him around 65 and I honked it off. Immediteley pulled on him, Had about 3-4 car lengths by the top of 3rd. Shut down a little bit in 4th gear. He drove by me and gave me a thumbs up, seemed super surprised. These lightweight FWD cars are monsters from a roll.

So how'd that professional fender rolling go? I've been curious to see the results.

It could of been worse haha. I figured it was going to happen. No guarantee that it wouldn't crack but it did. But of course I didn't get that disclaimer until after it was done. Not mad since I figured it was going to happen. Really not that bad. But no more rubbing to my knowledge. I will get pictures tomorrow.

Drove it to work a couple days in a row and today to a couple car shows and got all the grocery shopping done. Car seems to run fine. About to hit 18k miles.

Had to revert back to the lower timing tune due to too much KR on the tune where I raced that RS.

Thinking about going e85. Just seems like a waste as of now to do it so soon. Spent so much time getting this tune dialed in on my current setup, to have to start all over with bigger injectors and another $400+ for a tune. I know it would be worth it though with the power increase and not having to worry about KR. Loved it on my silver car.

Late on the pictures. Don't like showing some of the only imperfections of the car

I just used touch up paint, that was from bottoming out bad. As you can see it tore up the tire pretty bad over the course of not having it rolled. Regret not going with the shorter/not as wide of a tire.
Racking up the miles lol

Still a really beautiful looking Dodge, though!
Got an '02 Chrysler Neon myself, but I think I'll grab some inspiration from your SRT.
(I love the good ol' Chrysler emblem on the front instead of Dodge :lol: )

Now to look through the rest of the pages... Shame to have some of the progress posted lost, but what is here I will definitely be looking through! :P

At least you aren't rubbing anymore. I can still get mine to rub if I push it.

Yeah, never was a fan of the Ram head emblem. Reminds me of their trucks. Don't want a visible association with a truck of all things.

There was a ton of progress and it was fun to look back on. But it is all gone now. :|

Nope, it still does when I corner hard. Lol. Regret going with a 235/45.
