Yeah Jimmy, the itch needs a little scratching... even if it's nothing major.

Researched and ordered tires; 265/35 Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

Definitely done for a while now... MAYBE do some RCE sways in the near future, but I'm tapped out for now.

Did you have to roll your rear fenders or is it a good fit? I am thinking of picking up the dforce myself 18x9.5 and i already have 265/35/18 tires to put on it.

Had to roll rears to get these under. Didn't have to roll them flat though, little more than 45 degree angle.

Today, Tom (mnym8kr) and I knocked out the following on my car;
- Group-N Engine Mounts
- Group-N Transmission Mount
- Whiteline Steering Rack Bushings
- Kartboy Shifter Bushing Combo
- Grimmspeed Air Oil Separator
- Finished the Goodridge lines install

There is significantly less slop going on under the hood and tranmission whine is quite audible in first through third, which for the moment I quite enjoy. Once at cruising speed though, additional NVH isn't detected.

I believe some forged internals are next up, I'm just too scared to do any power-making mods until I have some 'solid bits' in there. We'll see though, only time will tell.

Thanks again Tom, for your hospitality!
