    They're not real. They're just plastic body panels more or less. They just replace the rocker panels.

It has 19200 miles on it and never see n a winter. Bought it new but now getting the itch to sell it and get the new Vette but I dont want year 1. My wife drives a Mercedes Benz GLC 300 SUV.

    I'll take the 5th (even though I am in the UK) - I like nice cars (and motorbikes) as much as I like amps and guitars................

    Also heard stories of them pulling all the new 2019 or this mid engine 2020 Pretty sure it was the twin turbo 2019 because of it Twisting and breaking the sub structure and poping the rear window because of to much power hooking up and it not being strong enough

    IMG_20190403_201906042~01~01.jpg I drive a 2011 Chevy Silverado 4 door with 5.3 v-8 every day at work. It's a decent truck, I've got about 180,000 miles on it. I got 250,000 miles out of the last one. I do Pest Control, so I do a fair amount of driving.

    My pet vehicle is a 2015 Ford F150 with a 5.0 coyote motor. I bought it it new and immediately installed a Whipple 2.9 supercharger on it, added a 130mm throttle body, installed a dual exhaust system, dropped the ass end 2 1/2 inches and several other mods, both cosmetic and mechanical. It's a beast from Hell, and has road manners like granddad's Buick. Makes about 800hp at the crank. Mustang GTs? Heh...it'll eat them for breakfast. If I drive it normally and don't get into it, it gets about 1 mile to the gallon better mileage than it got when I drove it the first few hundred miles in stock form

    Yeah, it’s interesting how the awesome looking body spoilers slow it down a few mph But I need that more aggressive look!

    I've thought about it! I was really wanting to stay with the sleeper look. The only way you can tell it's not stock from the outside is the two pipes sticking out from under the back bumper. The Michelins I have on there grip fairly well for street tires if I "pedal" it out of the hole. I've got good drag tires and rims for the strip! Best time: 10.77

    I was doing 60 mph down the forest road Saturday afternoon in my wife's Jeep Cherokee and totally destroyed a back tire. No idea what I hit, maybe a porcupine quill, but I went from 36 psi to shredded in about 2 miles. At least the bugs weren't bad while I changed the wheel.
