    Default The Root Beer Bull

    So Thanksgiving morning I hit a six pointer (buck) with my tiburon (here). So needless to say the insurance company ended up totaling it. I was really considering a Lexus IS350 or a Volkswagen GTI. The Lexus didn't have enough horsepower for me. It also didn't help that the four IS350's I was considering all sold. I read all the problems with the GTI's and decided against it. So I ended up going with a SHO. It's been a perfect fit for everything I wanted; super comfortable, awd, and horsepower.

    My goals are; performance wise 450-500whp, lower it, throw some wide wheels on it, and a few aesthetic mods.

    Love the color and that interior is fire! Not to sound biased here, but some gold or bronze wheels would really make this thing pop

    Thank you sir! I've definitely been considering bronze. I also have considered maybe a face paint matched to the color of the car with polished lip, or gunmetal face with polish lip.

    Color matched faces would be cool, kinda iffy on gunmetal though.

    that is a damn fine colour! (yes colour is spelt with a 'u').

    I saw this colour on a mustang on the internet and I was actually going to get my 36 painted in it. decided after a long time pondering on this that I would keep the car original and black.

    Only thing new at the moment is I had the mufflers deleted. I was surprised how little cabin drone it has. I am usually not one to skimp on modifications but I really didn't want to spend $1600 on an exhaust. Plus I got the itch to do something to it. I am rather happy with the exhaust tone. I can hear the turbos spooling now, so that's a plus. I've also got a set of H&R spring ordered. I really want to get some new wheels and tires on before any events.

    I considered it before I drove it. Then I realized how comfortable it is. So I am probably just going to throw some lowering springs on it. I live in the foot hills of the Appalachian mountains so it's not the most leveled or lowered friendly area lol.

    I agree to bags!!
    bags can be comfortable and handle perfectly fine when set up properly, and you will have the adjustability to lower and raise it when you get to a shitty bit of road.

    Damn the peer pressure is real here! lol

    I went with lowering springs because bags are out of my budget. I am surprised how much I like springs over coilovers. The car handles sooooo much better now. I am definitely happy with this choice.

    Anyways I had a chance to put the bull to work over the weekend. This car feels so planted I never worry about sliding in this boat.




    So snaps I got of the mountain and road conditions.



    I also ordered some new wheels. They should be finished and shipped by the end of the month.
