This is just step one in my Flex Make-Over... wasn't going to post up yet... but what the heck... LOL


Ordered new wheels from local Discount Tire. Got a nice price on the TSW Nurburgring. $320 a piece and then $100 in rebates...

All I can say is OMG! are these things LIGHT! These are the 20x8.5 and they weigh in at 23 pounds! I picked one up with one hand and simply could not believe how light it was! The Discount Tire guy said he had to hurry up and open the box when he picked it up to make sure there was a 20" wheel inside! LOL! The stock wheels feel so much more heavy! Especially when you have to carry them to the shed in the back yard! LOL!


So did a 0-60 MPH run this morning. Dropped my time by .06. But then I got to looking at the weather! Tempertures were the same... This is with the stock tune..

Stock wheels - 5.60 seconds with barometer of 30.25 and humdity of 71%
New wheels - 5.54 seconds BUT with a barometer of only 29.92 and humdity of 80%

Now... just waiting for the tracks to open!!! In the mean time, the Make-Over continues... LOL

Thanks! Those were shot with my Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 70-200 2.8 L IS Mark II... I shot those wide open at 2.8, IIRC... I believe the EXIF data should all be intact.... I love shooting with this combo!

COOL!! I have a 50D as a back-up body and for when I need to shoot with a high frame rate! But once you shoot full frame it's hard to shoot anything else! LOL!
