    Sorry to hear you got scammed. How did that happen? Were the wheels owned by a prince in Nigeria? lol

    Lol, that would be a better story! The seller used photoshop (and well, I might add) to insert a piece of paper with his username and the date into various pictures of the wheels. He then "sold" a few sets of wheels on the forums to myself and various other members. This is why I always use Paypal and pay for goods/services. lol

    That's a bummer. But it's also why I use Paypal and a credit card for online purchase. It creates dual coverage. That way if something goes bad, they can fight between themselves and not against me in regards to who pays it.

    Not that I would ever advocate violence towards anyone...

    And by burned alive, I'm sure you mean slowly with a hand torch, starting with the toes and working your way up, after you put 100 spider on their face.

    It was a little toasty this weekend. ~104 ambient so the track temp was ~140 degrees. The R888Rs held up nicely.

    I retract my previous statement. It still would look better in my driveway instead of that shoddy track background. sheesh

    I had a corner balance and alignment done. I added a little negative camber at all four corners since I was leaning on the outside of the tire a couple weekends ago. So it went from ~1.8 at all four corners to -2.1 at all four corners. I'll likely go closer to -3 or 3.5 at the front and -2.5 or -3 at the rear when I get the parts to do so.

    Weights
    LF 1123 lbs
    RF 1079 lbs
    LR 948 lbs
    RR 907 lbs
    Cross 2027 lbs 49.9%
    51% Front/49% Rear

    We'll see how this does in a couple weeks
