Pictures of Mods
 
All the time I see pictures of various mods floating around, and I would like to collect them up to make a gallery on crxmpg as well as just have a good inspiration thread going here.

So, that said, post up your mods and any description you want, and lemme know if I should include it on crxmpg while you're at it.

Thanks all.

Aww, c'mon now. Don't make me dreg through every post and ask everyone if I can borrow them, *tear*

Just nab 'em under "fair use". If someone doesn't like it they can just PM/email you and have it taken down.

TomO, tell us about the strut tower brace. :thumbup:

By allowing you to go faster around corners, how much do you believe it's worth in FE? ;)

GasSavers_TomO 05-30-2007 07:43 PM

Well, the 215/50/13 tires did more for cornering speed than the strut tower brace did, but the brace does its part too. I don't go around corners fast...it's more of the correct line (or racing line, if you will) so as to not lose speed. most all of my corners on my daily commute are on and off ramps.

As far as FE is concerned... the fact that I maintain or am able to increase speed on those corners keeps me from having to accelerate all over again. The FE driving techniques that I use are: Best line cornering, anticipate red lights (coast longer), slow acceleration, highway driving. And I still maintain a 50mpg 90 day average. The VX is quite a nice car ;)
