Talking Atleast a 3 mpg increase mod

well finally got some new window visors cus the first ones didnt fit being way to long. just need to leave the windows up for next two days to let them stick. just being small pieces of plastic i think it looks little better.







also cragars are really good cup holders! iv had that cup in there for about 2 weeks and i have been on the highway and it still hasnt come out

Those window guards are also HP gainers

Why do you have a cup in the tire?

yeah man i was in florida from liike april to october. I was in Fort Walton Beach on Eglin AFB doing some EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) training. I had a blast(pun intended). Unfortunately my services are needed elsewhere like in maryland now.. I hear you on windows down even when its like 100F and 100% humidity.. still rolling with the windows down and radio blastin... thats just how i roll. even in the winter but i wear a beenie with the windows down.
