Only 10 feet??? Damn, he oughtta be ashamed of himself!
Ya god darn PCM, that'* got to get taken car of soon. I'll get some pics soon of some nice two wheel burnouts.

So the trip was pretty fun, had a great Friday with Rogue and Family and the Intense boys. Pretty funny you/we picked up that black GP along the way back to the shop.
Thanks again for the Atap, that just justifies I need to get that Airbox sealed up nice and tight.

The total trip was 995 miles, and averaged 21.8 for the trip. Not to bad considering I was hitting triple digits on the open road here and there. Mapquest said 6hrs 20min. I made it to INTENSE in 5:10.

The LSD is nice. MUCH better traction. On the test drive when Rogue was driving he did a 15mph roll that USED to break em loose, DIDN"T. Just gripped and was gone. I tested before I left on a road by my house I could roll up to 23mph and break traction. . I'll test the same road this week when it dries out. Can't wait to get to the track and see them 60ft times on some nicley worn stock RSA'*

Oh did I mention I brought home some gen 3 rockers 1.9 and oil-restrictive pushrods and 105# vavle springs. Those are going on at April 10th at IL'* next mod day.

Rogue had a great time BS'ing with you and Kendra, can't forget mini-rogue either. Looking forward to the next time we meet, see ya at bonnefest. You didn't realy get a good listen to my stereo, we were too busy talking performance and such, by fest time I'll get it tuned back to how I had it. (just got everything re-built in the trunk 2 days earlier)

Lots of pics, Jennifer and I stoped at the Air Force Museum on the way home, Ohio is the birth place of Aviation you know.



















Good time!

Did you notice an improvemnet when passing? I get a fair bit of torque steer when I stomp on it from 60-80mph then it levels out?

What'* tourque steer? Thing of the past! It'* not 100% gone but I'd say 95% better. No longer have the fear of ending up in the next lane or ditch when I stomp on it.

I don't know if the Gen II fixes this, but my dad doesn't have torque steer like he did stock, its much better now, but now the car pulls left, then right, then left, then right, and goes back and fourth like that. It did this with all 3 differentials so I'm wondering if the Gen II does this, because that is annoying. I was following him down the road the other day and it was swerving all over the place.

So basically what I'm asking is, have you experienced this with your Gen II??

Well no, It dosen't go back and forth, I've noticed couple times it going one way after a hard turn. Not annoying at all, lot less effort than tourque steer. Steering does seem different, little tighter, more percise too. Magnaster set on firm is doing a nice job too.
