4 Attachment(s)
So my g/f knows I'm really into ecomodder & she has looked @ my computer & seen the pics I have saved of all you guys cool mods. She came over the other day with about 6 or 7 boxes & some duct tape & told me we should go play :) so She & I went out & she helped me make some wheel skirts & a really flimsy kammback, lol. She also made a giant wing & taped it on b/c she knows I hate ricers :D Here are the pics....

Dude. trade? My wife wouldn't even watch me make a grille block for someone else's car.

Man, I love her... lol. She just doesn't care about/understand how efficiency works into our lives. Although she did notice the way that I shop for food, and she understands that we get 2x as much if she does it my way.

So... any ABA testing on those new aeromods?

You can get those stickers by talking to a mod and offering your first born child... or, I think you can donate to the site as well, and that should get you one or two.

No I didn't test them, lol, we took them off when we were done... HOWEVER, I have got 2 front LRR tires recently and about to give out some results for those in about eh, 4 days, its looking like about another +1 or 2 MPG... :D

I had LRR's... they were bigger, and heavier than the stock tires. I took them off a few days ago, and I'm waiting on this tank and the next one to find out for sure if they actually did anything.

It doesn't matter if they did, I sold two of them to a friend who needed some tires for his car so he could get back and forth where he needs to go without asking for rides all the time.

I have a feeling they weren't really doing much, though, since they were like 1.5x the weight of the OEM combo at each corner. In fact, I don't want to say for sure that they were hurting me, but I think they were at least canceled out by the weight gain.
