Speaking of bugs, I'm now at my Mother's house in Richmond, VA so that means it was finally time to wash the car after 2500 miles of road tripping! :)(y)

I recently picked up a bunch of car care products from Adam's Polishes to make the job easier by having the right equipment! ;) (The truth is, they had a Memorial Day 20% off sale and my OCD couldn't resist!) :ROFLMAO:

Everything fits in the 5gal bucket including the Foam Cannon, so it all came with me on the road trip! :geek:

I'm reasonably sure that I removed roughly 10lbs of bugs and dirt from the car. :LOL:

Just remember....You can only polish a Turd so much....in the end its still a Turd. But it's your Turd....not anyone else's Turd.

haha welcome to the south east (ish) coast...beautiful day, i think ill wash my car, 10 minutes later...RAIN, doh
I actually prefer to wash my car when it has already been wet all day from the rains.
During the salty season... which FEELS like six months out of the year, I actually put on my old motorcycle rain suit and wash the car IN the rain; focusing more on the underside and wheel wells.
Nothing accelerates the oxidation process more than heat and/or H²O.
 


I impulsively bought 1552 podium wheels in graphite (17x7.5 42mm offset) . It looks like the right tire size is 215 40 R17 but tires are limited in that size. With the offset increase (40-42 I think) can I get away with PS4S in 215 45 R17? Thanks for any help. I have a tuner to correct for the speedometer.
 


I'm convinced now, I need 215 40 tires. My ST will do less then 3K mi per year, I have a modern F150 for weather/split daily duties. I will get Blizzaks for the stock wheels. Yokohama ADVAN NEOVA AD08 R - SIZE: 215/40R17 look perfect but are back ordered. I'm okay with over tiring the car I want to get into autocross here in the Northeast looks like fun.
 


I send an email less than an hour after the purchase to switch the wheels to silver from graphite on a magnetic ST. I've never been a Blackwheel guy. When I saw Mountunes pick of my car with the silver wheels, I was in love. Again complete impulse, never do that, lol

Impulses are best done when inebriated/ Drunk...then when they do show up its a complete surprise * Maybe not the deduction in your Bank acct or credit card though!

I think the Falken Rt660 are available at tire rack. I have to wait a month for the Dunlop Dirrezza tires, which are supposed to last a little longer than the Falken tires.

I drove it to the track, removed the spare, grabbed my helmet, and started running laps. First time on-track with the FA 500s installed and the difference was immediate. Two sections are specifically hard on right fronts and I have the camber close. Wear was much better on the passenger side. Turn 11 compresses the car and loads the driver's side and I have a rub, so need to solve that. New tires coming so I'll work through it when I have the wheels off for that and dial in the right front camber.

On the whole, extremely impressed with how it's all come together. Such a different car from where it started. And nothing that has made it lose the fun factor.
