Talking My Trans Am, A Tank & Some 315's

Nothing amazing, just two shots from this past week:

Outside of Conowingo, MD:


In West Chester, PA - showin' off my 315/35/R17 Nitto's - car is dirty as hell btw at this point:


Also, my new Centric/Powerslot/StopTech slotted rotors & pads should be here within 2-3 weeks (backorder). Can't wait.

Thank you guys, just ordered some dual duals too

Band: I was having the same issue. Sumitomo which I ran prior and were very EHHH, or pay some money for something decent. I got these for $392, then only $15/tire for mounting and balancing. They grip like no [street] tires I've run and ride real nice! From posts on other f-body forums, guys have 20, 30, 40k miles on 'em still with good tread, driving aggressively - including track use.

No rubbing issues except at sharp corners under heavy load and some highway bumpers. I am rolling the fenders tomorrow:

Thanks! It's stock height from what I am aware of. Purchased it back in May of last year (traded in my E36 M3 on it). Had the Flowcrapper exhaust installed, as well as the racing stripes and K&N intake. I assume it's stock height as well - shocks/springs look OE:





Fairly recent shot (last fall) so you can see it at a 1/4 angle:

It was a slow turd! lol. The main reason I sold it is 'cause it wasn't fast enough. Damn thing could outcorner anything in the twisties though. I do miss that aspect a little bit. Now if I had an E36 M3 with an LS swap, mmm, I'd be a happy person

I wouldn't want it cause it's fast. They are comfortable. "quick" . Good looking. And it's a bimmer!

I also have a but of a soft spot on them. One of the first fun sports cars I ever drove.

I'll give it that: Very comfy and such a blast to drive on the twisties. I just "need" a fast car I get bored otherwise
