Great car Tim, good to see another fellow EF driver on board. Look after her mate. Alloy wheels are waaay better than hub caps. :cool:

Lol!! Too true.. She looks like a nice ride mate.. How many k's she done?? You'd be surprised how a nice set of wheels can reaaly set off a car without the need to lower it.. ;)

Yeah - lower the beast!! It doesnt cost too much.. I am paying $200 for a full set of lowered king springs (and I think the XR springs are more expensive than regular falcon springs) So its only $50 a corner....

Lowering the car doesnt really make the rims look bigger (unless you have low profile tyres)

nice car. I am sure it has a lot of potential (and once you get bitten by the mod bug - there is no going back)

Heres a small skid a mate pulled in my car a while ago. I'm a bit worryed with those double lines seeing as my diff is only a single spinner and when this happens apparently it means your diffs on it way out.

oh the dates a bit off on the pic too

No it doesnt mean the diff is on its way out, just means the car must have been on a pretty level surface and that both wheels had an equal amount of traction(or lack of it ;) ). If you had a LSD and it was only single spinning then you should be worried....

It looks pretty decent though, but wheres the smoke :p
