Loved them. Came in quick, stayed strong even for way more laps than we would normally run. Never got greasy and seemed to have a nice even wear. We have teamed up with Federal for the season, so that is now our tire of choice, but I really like em over the RS3's we had on the car.

The LSJ brakes cant hang, so all my pads (Street and track), rotors (New and used) and calipers are up for sale.

Putting the LNF Brembos on up front and trying to find LNF rears to put on.

Yup. Need to see if the rotors are larger, but yes they are vented which for what we are doing is a HUGE help.

So the shop that built my trans in 2014 didnt do a good job... apparently the diff was never shimmed right. I went testing Saturday and this happened.





So in a crazy 60 hour Window, the car went back to Trevor's, Steve gave up his 4.17 F23 trans for us, we salvaged my diff, put it in Steve's Trans and put the car back together.





Car is on the trailer in front of the house. Need to align it and change fluids for this weekend. I will say the Brembos were amazing.


So yeah, please buy my LSJ brake parts XD

how does the diff being shimmed incorrectly cause that gear to strip?

Any driving experience with the 4.17 gears? I have a sc'd 09 XFE with the 3.63 and I am doing a clutch swap soon and I am contemplating buying a 4.17 trans for it.

Yeaaaaaah. the 4.17 is alot better, hell we are thinking about the 4.41 from the Vue as well. Car runs out a lot higher, glancing at gauges while on track i can't remember specifics, but it was going alot faster in 3rd and 4th.

Yes. the AEM gives Trevor a ridiculous amount of data to look at. And honestly, the stock dashboard doesn't keep up or is accurate with how the motor runs currently. Hoping to be able to afford an AEM CD7 this winter to put in. Car doesn't see anything but tack use anymore.

She's back home again after some electrical and programming troubleshooting. Trying to get her cleaned up and buttoned up so we can go test Buttonwillow next Friday.

We have applied for Super Streets FF Battle and are waiting to see if we get picked. Otherwise we race in October and once in November to finish out the season.
