So I got the new wheels and tires on. Haven't had a chance to lower her down an inch and a half but I'll do that soon. Rides ALOT better now!

Before

Now


It's hard to tell in the picks but it's alot lower with the smaller tires!

oil temp is a good one, so you know when it's ready to start redlining.

oil press is kinda useless unless you're doing tracking to see the pressure drops in the corners. otherwise when it gets low it's probably too late anyway.

oil temp is better and egt
