Welcome to the crew!!!!
i think i seen your car the other day at the walmart in riverton
RIMs one of those things that I am only just starting to care about, but the cost is putting me off on it.hey guys i been having some buddies of mine tell me i should start producing rims for the stinger and sale them, awhile back i made some carbon fiber wheels that weigh a little more then 5 lbs each which is crazy weight savings, i dont think anyone else out there is even close i did this more as of fun project on my spare time. i was thinking about taking them off and finding areas for improvement to reduce weight but maintain its strength, i think i may even be able to make them even more lighter maybe in the high 3 lbs each, do you think people would buy them? if so what would you think i should charge for them? i think i need to start using my engineer skills and put it to work!
i also will be looking at making a full cat- back exhuast without a rear muffler at or less than 10 lbs in total weight
also working on possible making a true cold air intake system and a way lighter lithium car battery maybe 2 lbs you just need enough juice to get it started and from there the alternator will take over but i want to make enough juice to make it where you could listen to the radio without the car on maybe up to 1 hour with current sound system from the manufacture basically this battery will still be practical and most people dont have their cars off and use its power so i think this could have some great potential i was doing some calculations from stock weight depending on what model car you have with these four things i might be able to save up to 250+lbs
i want to get some feedback and get any advice on this im thinking about making a few to give out and possibly discount later down the road as a first time order deal if i actually really go all out and produce them but before i do any of that i want to make sure everything is pretty solid any feedback i get good or bad is still good feedback
right now i have borla, and hfc i think i can make it about 60 pounds lighter than thataRIMs one of those things that I am only just starting to care about, but the cost is putting me off on it.
The after market for exhaust seems to be growing. Tneer just put out a system that makes me excited, just need to hear it. Borla they say weights the least for CAT back. High flow CAT down pipes I only know of a hand full of options. The K8 store has a lot of systems on it's page you should check out.
Feel free to share what you learn I think most of us UT guys are still learning.
I think @HaltHammerzeit got his installed for a reasonable price.Speaking of exhausts, I've got one on the way and need a good place to get it installed. I've been getting quotes of around $280 which seems outrageous to me. I would do this myself if I had a lift, it's not that difficult so I'm surprised by the quotes I've been getting. Anyone know of a good place?
If it's going to cost me $300 to do this then I may just take that money and buy some jack stands, I need them anyways. I'm just not super excited about laying on my dirty garage floor in the heat we've been having.
