      Dang it Tim, you nailed that one in less than 10 minutes, LOL! I'd get you a prize of some sort, but I'm headed to Brokeville whilst fulfilling my modding obsession.

      Yeah, they are the 505's and I made the decision to dunk them. I put in my order today but I still say you should do a set too and we'll hold down the East and West coasts HRE Vintage style.

      Well, I have some lofty goals for this car power-wise and I don't think the standard clutch-pack will be able to put up with the juice I'm going after. So I am just being paranoid, or careful...

      So without further adieu As Tim guessed it, this episode of "What the frick is that?" is indeed a South Bend DxD Stage 4 clutch. The postman, guy tossed it on my porch yesterday. This should hold the power just fine.

      The box full of gnarlyness, is a cool.


      Quit grindin' yer teeth!


      This thing is no joke. I respect the hell out of it just as it is.

      I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts about this clutch. The noise coming from my dual mass flywheel is unsettling. A nice solid steel flywheel would make me feel much better. Have an specs for us?

      Thanks man. So what do you have coming exactly? 2 or 4 door and what color? Base or loaded?

      It feels like forever til these parts can go on, but the boys at Tomas had to clear out two bays to work on the TTS and the .:R simultaneously. I hope to know soon and will report back as far as specs, I will get all that up sometime tomorrow as well. Quality is A+++

      Do tell...

      As far as offset, the dust hasn't settled over at HRE concerning this set up. The variables have made it quite difficult. BBKs and widened front fenders have further complicated the process, but I know they'll come through with a sick fitment. They always do.

      I heard it is a custom design, where the wheel is sawed in half. So the bottom is flat and it has little tiny wheels along the bottom surface like roller blades.

      This way he can have a ride height of 0.05 inches without any rubbing under any situation.

      Alrighty friends, the HRE Vintage 505s have now officially been ordered. Theyll take about a week to build and my final decision is what color to do. Can some of you chime in here:

      :OPTIONS:

      1. Gloss black lip & matte black face

      2. Matte black lip & matte black face

      3. Matte black lip & textured black face

      4. Textured black lip & textured black face.

      Itll be one of these 4 options I believe. What do you all thinks?

      No option for gloss black lip with a textured face? I think the contrast between the two would help it pop a bit more. If not, my vote goes for number 1.

      cloors you may be onto something there. Good call.

      Dutch blackchrome would be sick but thats not one of their standard finishes. So it would add another week and $400- extra papes from what I understand. That is a great idea though. Maybe i should look one up for sample sake.

      Looking forward to seeing your wheels. I think there needs to be at lease one area or surface of the wheels with a gloss finish. Otherwise they tend to look dirty from a distance.
