What's wrong with the wide body look? If it's done right it would look rather nice.

I just don't think that it fits the lines of the LS much. I want it to be more subtle and if I out the stock wheels back on, hardly noticeable.

I just ran the farthest I have run without stopping. 6.16 miles this morning. I smoked for over a decade so that always gave me a mental reason to stop and walk since I felt like I couldn't breathe well.

Ah, I see what you are saying, I don't think you are going to be aable to get away with that, not with how far the one end the car sticks out. You could probably get away with and inch pull, maybe two but it looks like you need a good 3inches for the one set of fenders.

Damn, that is a long run. I used to have to do 4-5 miles a day. I do and also don't miss those days.


from the far side of sanity.

Wow! That's quite a bit!

For the fenders, I'm hoping that I'll be able to pull a bit and use camber to do the rest. I'd like to keep it to shortening the uca's instead of lengthening the lca's since that'll make the wheels kick out even more. I think it'll look better and not require as much camber.

So after the people I was hanging out with tonight decided to act like old people and go home at midnight I road around for a bit and seeing as I live in the middle of no where it's just crazy how after like 1am the streets just empty out and it's pretty much only cops on the road.

The bars were empty, so were places like IHOP and like places. I think tonight though was a big part of the fact that the government is shut down still and the people in this area seem to be directly tied to them. I know a lot of people in this area are employed in some way by the government or retired from it.

This whole government shutdown is just stupid on so many levels, they had more than enough time to reach an agreement before this deadline.... Just a bunch of lazy greedy assholes that want every thing they can get and bleed america dry in the process.

Yeah, now that I'm working at a dealership, I can get things done a little easier. I'm going to see how much camber I can get and then see how much pull I'll need to slide by.

Sounds like where I used to live in New Mexico. So tiny and the streets were clear mostly at night.
