      9.5 all around wins every time.

      Before I sold my alphards I test fit the rears up front with a 20mm spacer and absolutely loved it

      I didnt crack the pan. The panzer plate actually saved my car. if you look carefully that rectangle gray piece is a road spike that is now impaled to my panzer plate

      Looks like the road shot a grappling hook in you . . . . thats some crazy **** right there. Were you in construction?? Why the hell was this in the road? Good thing it stopped there - coulda been worse right?

      Yea that's pretty much what that is. I was by where there working on a piece of road by my house. And went to o around it and had to swerve back. That spike is hammered into the street to hold a metal plate down. I basically ripped it out of the street. And took it with me

      I have a tune from 034Motorsports, I am having some issues with it but waiting on my new inlet flange and pipe, so i can run the maf setup for the tune hopefully it should fix my issues if not i gotta do some logs and send it to them for a revision. I like the car though its alot of fun. especially when I had it at 22psi.
