Discovered today that if I turn the key back to Acc., the stereo shuts off when I turn my windshield wipers on, then automatically comes back on when I turn the wipers off I also discovered that I LOVE RAINY DAYS!! It makes burning rubber about a hundred times easier! I can spin the tires into 2nd hehehe!

Oh yeah, BB and 31s coming soon





I love graduation presents

Went to the local parts store today. Walked out with my wallet $40 lighter Two cans of VHC Wheel Paint in dark gunmetal gray, a hose nozzle, a glove-wipe-thingy, and a jug of Maguire's Ultimate Wax and Wash. Gonna make her SPARKLE!

Well, got a new phone a couple days ago. So that means new camera too. Went from the 8MP Carl Zeiss in my Windows Phone to the 8MP iPhone camera. Downgrade there I miss my Lumia already

Anyway, a third of my exhaust fix just arrived. 4ft of 3" 16ga steel exhaust tubing. I'm gonna fix my rattling exhaust once and for all once my Super 44 arrives. Until then I am stuck with weird looks whenever my RPMs drop below 1500. Drivin me nuts!

Since putting a flow master 40 on mine it rattles a bit at idle even with all the exhaust whole and clamped/welded with no holes... Makes me think my cat may be shot lol. But u hate that sound too

It's definitely a combo of the two. Holes in my muffler, a loose baffle or two, and most likely a bad cat. PLUS my exhaust is clamped and not welded. So everything is loud right now! And not in a good way either

Ok...

Graduation came through. As in, 4 figures came through. SO! Look for-- as stated before-- new shocks, 2" boost, and exhaust videos. Maybe even some lights... This is gonna be an interesting next month or so for Asteria

Bilstein and OME is the only way to go, especially for a niner.

I'll look into those. I've always heard Bilsteins are absolutely fantastic, so I may have to try some out for myself here pretty soon

I've got em on both jeeps, rides fantastic, the difference from the PO shocks on my niner was night and day. Even on the green one it was upgrade.
