So maybe I should have had a build page up sooner than later but here is my build page. I decided to pull the trigger and do even more things to my car to make it the ultimate street/autocross/track car. With the emphasis on the fun factor. So some things may not be as functional but for feel or even looks. The point is I want to keep having fun in this car. Also yes I name my car and I think Michelle is fitting :)
So first thing on the list of stuff to change. Goodbye orange wheels. As much as I liked the look of the orange I decided not to paint my new rims. Mainly to save the money for other performance goodies. But who know maybe towards the end of the build, the orange will come back, lets see how the black rims grow on me.
Opening the box!
At Evan's tires to switch the tpms and put the new rubber on the new metal. Goodbye Orange Sparco's (My uncle works there so it only cost me lunch to get the work done. It is also nice using the proper tools)
The end result

sell me those Sparco wheels! :)
I'm normally not a big fan of graphics, but in this case it really goes well with your overall theme. Great job on the wheel choice.
Glad you decided on keeping the Slipstreams black, they look great.
Before I forget the wheels I got are Rota Slipstream 16x7 weighing 14.3 lbs on the bathroom scale. and the tires I am running are 225/45/16 Dunlop Direzza Zii Star Specs.
Here are some more things I did to my car in the past year
From Pierce Motorsports 6 point chassis brace and Strut tower brace
Also an Injen intake routed to under the headlight with the wiper fluid removed.
I also have the Boomba RMM, Ultimate shift kit, and the rear wing risers. With the risers I also have the 3D Carbon wing that took some drilling the in risers to make them fit the wing. an upcoming project will be modifying the wing to be more functional rather than a nice looking air catch.
