Thanks! I actually took the wheels off because they are balanced like shit. Guess that's what I get with XXR's.


Anyone know a good place in the area with a road force balancer? I am going to try that and then give up on them. I get mad vibration and shaking in the car at any speeds above 70MPH. I know it's the wheels because I threw my stock wheels on and all the issues went away.

Search Facebook for "Charlotte Acura Group". It was changed from a secret group to closed, so it should be visible now. If you don't see it, PM me the e-mail address you use on Facebook and I'll manually add you

I got in last Thursday, you'll probably need to send Stephen a message.

I still gotta do my intro post, but I haven't had time to get any pictures of my car up yet.

So any word on a new location for Cars and Coffee since it is coming up next weekend?

Also I won't be making VIR. Have to give in sometimes and do what Megan want's so going to the dog festival in Huntersville this weekend.

I will be going to the Lexus LC release event tomorrow though. Showing up in a loud Cadillac though.

Totes not car related at all but I flew out of CLT this weekend to go to Cuba and grabbed dinner beforehand here: https://www.yelp.com/biz/good-food-o...rd-charlotte-2


Has anyone been, it's fantastic! Tapas/small plates style food with a lot of different influences. It was so good, when we came back from the trip Monday, we swung by again for dinner #2.


Just thought I'd share that

I haven't, but I bet my wife has. She works near there and has tried lots of places. I will ask her when she gets home.

Eric or Jason, are there any decent rear diffusers that fit our cars pretty well? I just got my coilovers and will be putting them on soon and will be ordering the front lip, and side skirts and possibly the Mugen front grille in the next couple of days/weeks.

Thanks Jason.


Bryan, maybe take a look at APRs website. Jeremy had some APR canards on his Porsche and I bet they have some nice diffusers that could work.

BTW, anyone looking for a quad-copter (drone?). I know we have a lot of photography guys... so thought maybe you'd be interested. I got it on a trade and haven't touched it other than upgrading all body work...

JB I have friends coming into town that had wanted to ride GoPro karts Friday but it appears they have an event going on. What's the next best karting in the area that you recommend?

^ Yeah, there's a double-header race this weekend... Friday and Saturday.

I'd recommend Victory Lane Karting. Indoor, but the karts are fast and the tracks are a ton of fun...

They usually do have coupons floating around.

Not sure if any of you guys have been recently but they remodeled last year, took over more space, added another track plus bowling lanes, and expanded their seating in the bar and grill area. New (faster) karts as well!

Oh dang I had no idea they had renovated the place. Last time I had been was like3 years ago I think. Definitely need to hit it up again then with all those changes and faster carts. Need to find some coupons now.

Thanks JB

No problem! They took over the space next door last year and did a bunch of expanding and updating. Couldn't find pics of the track but they have two now, and once a month they combine them for a super track!

Small pic of the bar & grill area (called Pit Road Bar & Grill)




And some pics of the bowling area (called Gasoline Alley):

That is pretty sweet bowling alley setup.

And they make one huge track once a month. I definitely have to find time to get there for that. That sounds like it would be a blast.
