You need the SSEi stabilizer bars front and rear. Go to the wrecker, just like I suggested before.

You need the 2 mid-bar clamps/bushings on both bars also.

I just drove over to Wally World, the car loves it. I got some good tips from the guys there critiqing my driving, and critiqing the car. It was quite the talk. Only pontiac, only car not known for performance. I even had a $20 bet I couldn't break 1:30, that guy was not happy, His best was a 1:12. There was a Z06, an E55, and a go kart or two, Sooo much fun.

Jim, I think I did a pretty good job on the fender, now If only I would have noticed my lights on the drivers dies had no black ring around them before I ordered the black ring lights for the pass side.... And you can see the wobble I couln't get out of the hood in a few pics...

Great pics!! That one photo shows how much you need to beef up the sway bars. You'll love the tightness after you upgrade.

Wicked pix man.... very nice.

How much did it cost you to run? (if anything)
What was the top speed you made it to on the track?

I wish we had something like that around here....

cost me $35 for years' membership, $20 per driver, and $1 per fun run. $60 to have soo much fun I'm still tired. I would have slept all day if I hadn't promised my buddy to build his sub box today....

Hey, did you take the lug covers off so you don't loose them? Or to lower your rotating mass by a few oz. ?

Anything that isn't bolted down has to come out of the car per the rules, and I don't think 4oz' is going to matter....

My brother read the thread, he'* loving the complements on the pics, If the car was moving, he took the pic. we got special permission to take the straight on launch shot. Something about we showed up before the club head, and were waiting for a course layout sheet to start laying cones got us special treatment
