Background & Plans
■Wanting to install Cortex long torsion bar and Cortex watts link. Whats your opinion on that? Also looking to install front fender vents. What are you using? Also would like a fully forged racing wheel, like 18 or 19 inch

285 square stance. So fat top speed is 168 MPH, and that only because we ran out of room. Any advice or comments on what works well for you and your car ftom anyone,would be awesome. Thanks.
