Does anyone have stock seats they're wiling to part with? I need to cannibalize some for parts.

What is everyone's thoughts on tires in the Wilmington area? I have General G-Max that I got in Germany right now. They SUCK! Wet handling doesn't exist. I'm looking at Goodyear Eagle F1 all seasons right now. A little pricy, but sometimes you get what you pay for. Also, how often do you guys get together?

For my street wheels I run the BFG - Force KDW's that really do well on the street. They are also my wet autox tires. For autox I run the BFG Rivals and have been happy with this setup for the past year.

Ok Wilmington, it's time for a meet and greet! I'm not sure about schedules and such, but let's come up with a day to all get together.

Good idea Kip. I work 3rd shift so my no go zone is mid day about 12 to 5. I like evening/ night meets or mornings.

I would, but it seems the only way is to insert a url for the picture. I havnt figured out how to put an image for my profile either. haha. In any case, I added you on facebook.

Also, I'm mostly looking for things around the Wilmington area. Not trying to drive to Charlotte or what not. Sorry.

Yeah, it's at a bowling alley called Ten Pin. It's not a bad meet, but it's used to be better. It's starting to be run over by rednecks and their squatted trucks.
