    Default NEWB From Virgina

    I met a few of you at Carlisle. That was an awesome experience, glad that I was able to finally make it there. I own a 1998 Bob LSC. Her name is Stella, lowered on Vogtland 1.5 lowering springs, and Bilstiens in the rear with Tokico Blues up front, much better than the strutmasters that were on her when I bought the car. I previously owned a 1996 Thunderbird 3.8L. It became a failed project. I'm happy to be here and hope to be an active part of making the group better.

    She feels like a race car now, the front soaks it all up and the rear puts it down. I really enjoy it, the bigger bumps makes it harsh, but that was to be expected and I knew it when going in that it would act that way. I also installed the Trubendz 2.5 cat back exhaust into 2.5 in/out Borla Mufflers and remained with the original tips. She sounds as nice as she looks.

    I also have the full mandrel exhaust kit but I'm running magnaflow mufflers and tips. I think I would like to have the stock tips welded back on.
