Would it make it funnier if I told you how this happened?















Well... let's see....

I was launching off of the tree so hard I broke the welds that hold the radiator in place... the radiator swung back and the fan ate it alive!

Hey denver metro fanatics---

My driver's side window tint is starting to peel. Anyone know a place that does a good job at a reasonable price? I'm in cap. hill so close-ish would be good.

if by 'welds' you mean masking tape, then, yea, i could see that happening...

but seriously, does the truck actually 'launch' ?

depends on what you consider a launch... revving to 3200 and dropping the clutch on A6's with no wheel spin and a lot of vibration could be considered a launch.... it was good enough for a 2.5 60' time uphill with 80ish HP...

Thinking of getting some 20mm spacers (H&R) they come with bolts to mount to the hub then the wheel studs bolt to the spacer. I'm just wanting to get a wider stance out of my stock rims but, is it worth 300 bucks? Does anyone know of a cheaper option? Besides having to buy new wheels and tires?

I'd just save up for a set of wheels you like. I've seen a bunch of wheels hit craigslist for ~$300 - 500 with tires. It's always worth a shot.

All - I'm going to the Littleton Bimmer Burger Nights tonight at the Sonic on Schaeffer. Hope to see some of you locals there.
