S1 are low-end torquers. In comparison, the S2 is a high-end passer. Very generic description, but that'* the difference. Also keep in mind while the gear ratio is the same, I shift 500-800 rpm'* lower in each gear. Short legs, but great off the line.

My goal is 13'* and I will hit that this year. Then I'll stop working on that one and start in on the 95 in earnest.

Anyway, here'* a couple daylight shots of the tips. I think I need to raise the muffler slightly. Should I, or leave it be?

Raise it so the tips are a little more tucked into the bumper cutouts.

That'* what I'm thinking. Need to go about 3/16" to 1/4" to the left as well.


Gottabeperfect. Although some people here at work like how the Zilla hangs.

I do like how the exhaust tips point down a bit.

It'* actually the left outer tail that needs adjusting, and lucky for me, I use washers and wingnuts on them now.

Yup. Going to actually raise the entire muffler 3/8", and shift it to the driver'* side 1/4", and I think they'll be tucked up in there PERFECTLY. And still at a slightly downward angle.
