Yeah I'm working on getting prepared for STU this season with the car. I've got my work cut out for me, but if I can get down on weight and up on power. It'll be a very interesting season, at each the event (since the courses vary so much). If things go well I'll be heading out to KS for Nationals, but one step at a time.

Yeah it's def a fast class considering everyone is on "street tires". I'm coming out of a street mod Subaru, which was just too much "work" to keep competitive. I know how those all-wheel drive cars handle and on the bigger sweeping courses I'll have something for them.

Very nice. Those look like they will hold you in pretty good. And I like the CF on the back.

Looks awesome. I've got the Ring GT's in my E36 M3. If you know anyone that needs the Status side mounts I have a set I can sell on the low, i've switched to OMP

These fit me perfect, I have a 34" waist and I could sit in them on long trips easily.

^I believe the Ring GT seats aren't FIA, but I know the std Ring seats ARE FIA.
