    How'd that go? Must be nice to be able to use a lift! Big difference?

    it went well with the exception that I forgot my RB subframe brace, which we were planning on doing the same day, at home (stooges).
    the lift helped a ton, I can't imagine how much it would have sucked to try and do this on my driveway. It still took a long enough because the fact that the rails where swollen like a pregnant women in her third trimester. It took a good amount of pounding to get em straight enough to slide the rails over then we took our sweet time making sure the frame rails were perfectly aligned so we could get the center piece in without issue. Once that was the drilling took no time at all then after that the only slow down came from getting the center piece as high as possible and tight being that once it was at the height there was very little room to get the tools in and tighten it.



    as far as how it feels, there is a clear improvement in turning capability and stability, and it also doesn't hurt that the rattling has been toned down too.

    using my brothers fr-s as a support car. tool, jack, a full set of wheels with tires ice chest , chairs were packed in there.

    ran sunday at streets of willow. got the track set up on but instead of doing the federal 595 RS-Rs I went with falken azenis 615Ks because the company i was going to get the tires from sold the last set the day I was going to pick em up and left me scrambling to get tires with only 2 days left before the race. Those tires held up well though and i was able to run a 1: 39.1 as compared to my previous best on this track about a year ago of 1:43.6. good improvement but not 1: 37 i was aiming for. maybe at the next event I will hit the mark.
    edit: adding some pics of the wheel & tire set up. konig spooled 15x8 +20 with 205/50/15 falken azenis 615k.

    I love the look of the wheels, but Konig wheels say RAYS ENG. on them? How blatant is that?!
