      I was shooting for a forge race set by Rotiform but after seeing those^^ and the price I think I might make a second opinion. CONCAVE would be my choice, of coarse!

      OK so i did a little test fitting today just to try and figure out the offset on these. The wheels are Cargraphic Racin 19's. the thing is, the offset is not written or stamped anywhere on these wheels. :bang head:

      so far Ive found out i need at least a 20mm spacer in the front just to clear the caliper, and the rears fit no problem, which kinda sucks because the offset in the rear is gonna be way to far in compared to the front after I get the spacers on. guess I'm gonna have to get some for the rear too shooting for final offsets of +33 front +27 rear.

      BYOB, if you choose so
      Bring your own grub this time
      Air will be Onsite (HPA) but as courtesy if possible bring your initial tank filled.
      And of course paint....
      A couple of you have come along before and had a blast. It's a older mature an very friendly group (younger crowd still more than welcome as well) & lady's you're more than welcome to join in as well as some randomly show up.
      I Figure for those that might want to change up things a lil this offers such an avenue.... ANY and ALL are welcome to join .... Shoot me a pm and I'll fill you in further and what not .... =)
      After all how games are there where You can call someone friend then go shoot em up and still be friends ? =P

      Well, finally got around to putting my new front rotors on the Tiguan yesterday. Looks good, and stops good now as well. Old ones were pretty warped and pitted. Can definitely tell this car started its life up north. Passenger side one was rusted on pretty badly. But, all done, and car still stops. LOL. Also, learned my old floor jack doesn't work with the Tig like it did with the Jetta. Won't go high enough. So, I got to use my widowmaker as well. LOL.

      Morio -- those wheels are phuckin hot man!!! I'm starting to dig a smaller diameter wheel hence why I flirted with buying Caner's rare Kinesis wheels at the time. The stance those things give are NICE!! In due time i'll start getting all my parts sorted including new wheels

      I am currently getting my parts list together for all of my maintenance stuff as once I start my air project I do not wanna run into a scenario where "Well with all this stuff off we should replace this too" and have to order more parts.

      Main things I'm working on gathering now are:
      • A/C Fan (not CHEAP! )
        Fan Relay (not CHEAP! )
        OEM Rotors & Pads
        Inner CV boots
        misc. suspension stuff (bushings etc)


      Ok, and this is a very very last minute idea FOR TOMORROW How about we switch things up a bit. BYOB and BYOBBQ at MY PLACE . ?????

      If this sounds good to you, POST UP!! . Also, let's start earlier than 8:00 PM by starting at say 7:00 PM . Would wanna wrap things up by no later than 10:30 that night but thought this might be a way for everybody to come out and enjoy a GTG.

      POST UP WHETHER OR NOT YOU LIKE THIS IDEA! If we don't like it, we'll all goto the DH as usual.

      Hell yeah, I'm always down for BBQ. Let me know if I can bring some meat. I've got several dozen hamburger patties in my freezer that are already shaped and ready to cook.

      Lol just saw that your post says BYOBBQ. So I'll just bring a ton of meat and share
      Only thing I don't have are buns and cheese.

      PERFECT!!! I will supply some sausages and of course the grill and charcoal. The back yard is nice and cleaned up for us to relax in, as well as the house.

      If anybody objects, please speak up now! Otherwise PM me for my address if you don't know where I live.

      Seth -- If you're planning to come out, Noah is more than welcome to come of course

      BBQ sounds good, I'll bring hot dogs, buns (both for burgers and hotdogs), some chips, condiments and cheese.

      Thanks for allowing me to bring Noah. He really loves all the attention.

      I really need to find you the Super Spike V-ball/World Cup combo. I miss doing ka-boom spikes.





      I'm also the reigning Mario Kart champ for SNES and N64. Who wants some?
