    I have a set of Wilwood big brakes for the front, but they're off the car so that I can test a slick on a 15" rim. The Wilwoods are too big for a 15" rim. It keeps up with cars that trap ~120mph, so it moves pretty out fairly well. Just using it to get me by until I can afford a Supra into my budget. Let me know what you think. The trunk lid is also carbon fiber with no wing.

    Why did you buy the wilwoods if you were going to drag it anyway?

    Because I like to drive it on the street and have good brakes. They look nice too. Swapping in the stock brakes is a 30 minute ordeal at most, the hardest part is finding a body around to help me bleed the brakes. So no big deal to switch between the two.

    Fronts only just fucks up your bias. Better braking with bigger fronts only is all in your head.

    I have more aggressive pads in the rear, the Wilwood's are solid and allow me to run a bigger pad with many different pad options based on my style of driving. They are also lighter than the factory brakes. Bias can be adjusted with a proportioning valve anyways, but I have not felt that I needed one. I'm not quite sure how can you say that's all in my head when I can tell there is a major difference in how responsive the brakes are, especially when they're up to temperature.

    I can tell already that there are some "know-it-all" smart asses on this forum. :rolleyes:

    Continuing on...

    Why have "big turbo" in your title when you're not going to show it to us?

    My mother worked for the company that insures it so insurance is not too bad. Gas mileage on the highway has always been between 30-32mpg, city is more like 15-18mpg.

    Very nice!
    A buddy of mine has an 04' with a 60 trim.
    Needless to say it moves!

    also, how comfortably do you feel at 120+mph in the SRT.... do you feel like you're gonna die? i wanna go huge in my DSM but having the car useless below 80mph seems like a waste....considering once i get over 110 or so i feel like death is approaching... been ona fucking T28 for like 5 yrs now cuz full boost at 3k rpm is annoying enough on the street...3500-4k makes u look like youre 16 driving around like a dickwad

    anyway
