I washed mine after two weeks :)

onzedge 01-08-2012 12:29 PM

Wow. Mine goes in shock if I go more than a week. :icon17:

Red__Zed 01-08-2012 12:33 PM

:eek: new thread!

ZForce 01-08-2012 12:41 PM

Mine has not been washed for three weeks. Saw dust all over it from new hardwood floors installed, will be an embarrassment today next to Mr. onzedges always immaculate Z.

Yup, thread overload after it hit 10000, I have already noticed my T6 bandwidth drop by 50mbps.

Hmmm, well glad I was part of the party responsible for the thread overload! :tup:

No Z action yet today, but I took my wife out in her for some good Mexican food last night.

Took some pics of the wheel spacers today. Here are a couple comparing the stock spacing to the 15mm that were added both front and rear.

I also took the car out for a spin this morning to get a feel for the Hotchkis sway bars. My first impressions are that I feel the bumps in the road much more but the balance of the car is way better. Going left to right and vice versa are super smooth now. All I need now to finish off the suspension are some KW V3's to keep the car stuck to the ground.

^^ Nice, PedZ!!!

kenchan 01-08-2012 04:21 PM

just got back from a nice drive to the beach and around a few curves and some straightaways

MrZ 01-08-2012 04:31 PM

What do spacers do for the handling on the Z's?

Spacers just make the wheels more flush with the wheel wells. They are also supposed to improve handling a little bit since you are widening the cars stance but I highly doubt change is anything significant.

rule of thumb:

wider front better turn-in (excessive = oversteer bias)
wider rear better straight-line stability (excessive = understeer bias).

you will need at least 10mm change to make a noticable handling/feedback difference on street. :)

you will also notice wheel rate changes from about 10mm given you are running the same tires and psi.

on my car i had ET15 on the rear and was having slight understeer bias with ET38 so added a 5mm on the front (ET33). perfect. :p

happytheman 01-08-2012 05:59 PM

Wow pedz, it's fantastic what 15 mm will do for you! :tup:
