Default Guess what I just ordered?

I bought a couple things:

Hints:

1.) It'* just larger than 3 inches, and it'* round.

2.) I also bought something that will make my car feel like a tank.


Can you guess what two things I bought?

Well, the first thing seems to be a pulley. The second thing I am not sure....what would make it feel like a tank??? Motor mounts??? Exhaust maybe? I'm kinda confused about making it feel like a tank.

First one is a pulley obviously.

A tank? 80mm cannon, laser range finder and depleted uranium shells?
That suspension kit should be fun.

Nice to see some more suspension work being done. You'll see why it could possibly be the most fun mod you have! Power is great and all, but the driveability and just pure fun goes up 10 fold..

Are you going to use some poly urethane bushings?

EDIT: i remember commenting on control arms being included, but TUBULAR?!?! Geezus that'* nice..

I completely agree with you. Having a car that'* fast is one thing. Having a car that handles is another. Having both ... well, let'* just say I'm gonna be a happy man once this stuff is installed.

In the future, I want to get Koni struts with adj. dampeners. (EXPENSIVE!) That will really improve my handling.
