    Not surprised, but it's still an awesome project! Worth the extra time and $$!

    For the corner balance? I don't know enough about it but the were able to get it 50/50. Car weighs in at 1548lbs with a 155lb driver and a half tank of gas.

    Under 1400 lbs is awesome. Most of the time if the ride heights are really close then the corner weights are almost there any way.

    We use 4 40lb kettle bells in place of the 10 year old boys, they don't squirm as much

    Mikey is about 150, he can cram in the trunk. Two for one on the coffin.

    Had it out in public for the first time this weekend.

    Appears to be running well after some ongoing issues with the fuel pump. Bad ground looks to be the main issue.

    Still having a problem with VTEC engaging, throwing a VSS code, but the speedo is working. Hoping a new VSS sensor cures it.

    Also went for an Out of Province inspection this week...
