You can probably see my dash in one of the pics with the temp readings, but on average it's around 195*F for the coolant in the summer time. In stop and go, the temps can creep up to 205 but I haven't seen them ever go above 208* yet.

What are your LS3's temps?

Yeah those are about the same temps I see. I'm just using normal 50/50 coolant.


I picked up some new wheels to give the car a refresh.




I'm also picked up a S13 Coupe to work on as another side project... you can read about that and follow along on Grand Mighty if you're interested.

Done. New Advan GTs in Machined & Racing Metal Black in my long running 18x10" all around sizing. I did space out the fronts 5mm more this time.

I'm in love.

No one drives on those tires- LOL.
I thought you had bought the wheels used with tires off of a demo car when I saw your sneak-preview.

Looks great.

beautiful, loving the 5 spokes. I always thought about going with those wheels on the rx8. Might have to look in to it again.

I have desired those wheels since the first time I laid eyes on them.

They arouse me.

I just checked your blog post about your drive. I'm thinking of going there some time soon. How did you like it, other than the traffic? I've heard good things about that route.

That area definitely has the best driving roads in the immediate Bay Area. The section of 84 a little past Alice's is sublime, SMOOTH and flowy. Pescadero is whatever, tight, bumpy, and very typical to many, many "average" roads.

You right. I've also grown increasingly reliant on just using my phone to take pictures too Need to redo this.

Sizing listed here: ADVAN Racing GT ? Machining & Racing Metal Black | Grand Mighty

Tires are 265/35/18.

Excellent wheel choice. I prob would have went with the RE71 tire. You will learn to hate those tires. Oh wait, I thought they were R888's

Probably either at 7's day at Ikea, possibly one of my car meets, or maybe at Alice's. Car looks SUPER familiar.

Nice. I'm gonna take a drive down there when my buddy brings his car back from AZ. It's a shame that we don't have the canyons that SoCal has :/
