Driver mod, lol. I've never had wheel hop. But I'm sure LCA'S would stabilize the rear a little better then OEM.

Beefing up the suspension is always a good thing but nothing beats good old fashioned foot work. It took me awhile to get the hang of launching. I had more trouble staying outa the redline. The first 2 gears redline so fast.

Uca, and lcas with relocation brackets, you could start with that, also wider and/or stickier tires helps too. Those would be your best bet

Until you lower the car, then you'll also need the relocation brackets

True but I found mine in Craigslist and only ended up paying 40 bucks for them so I figured it was worth it sense almost two years later the car still isn't lowered. Search Craigslist OP it'll pay off

I have done everything but headers to the exhaust, intake, just bought mgw shifter, and about to buy the boss mani. I just went a different way sense I will probably pay to have springs and everything installed

Boss IM has been my favorite mod so far. Well, sounds like you're doing right so I won't break your balls about it.

Oh, then you should not do springs at all! Why not try coil overs? I know they're hella expensive but it would be pretty sweet.

Liar. Your still running factory OTA pipes and resonators. The gains are minimal but there. Same with a TB and ignition. Yeah, burn...

Lol

Oh, and you still have a 2-piece driveshaft.
Now what?

It does look sweet, but you'd be sparking like the lowered pickups if you lived in Indiana.

Lol yea I guess, I was thinking more of full power Bolt ons but that DS does make a big difference.

For anyone looking I know where to get a used shaft masters 3.5" aluminum DS for $500 shipped

And aftermarket throttle bodies can suck it lol

If you paint your hood, only do the sides and not the cowl. Border the red and cf with a thin red pinstripe too. Get them to clear the whole thing again so theres no break in the "two tone". I think that would look badas$$. Just my .02.

I didn't know it was carbon fibre. i misread that. In your case i would wrap the roof and trunk to give it a two tone look. Just a thought. It looks great now, but that would set it apart from others even more. JMO

Literally is! It usually happens under hard launching and it is where the wheels "hop" ,this is usually do to an excessive amount of traction and being light in the back of the vehicle so it causes the car to bounce or hop
