You guys should be able to change them yourselves. Or maybe not. I dunno. I picked out artwork for you at random. Hopefully that's OK.

It certainly helps to know who drives what!
Nice choices

Nice pic there Randy!

Is that a HMS roll bar in see on your car?

Glad to hear you enjoyed the Mac nuts.

Yes, HMS rollbar and harness bar. HMS will accomodate the hdtp mounts, no other bar (that I'm aware of) does.

The chocolate covered Macadamia nuts were outstanding

Randy,

What size tires are you running, especially up front? Are they 245"s? If so, do you have any problems with 245 on the stock 7.5" rim.

Thanks!

The tires shown in the (overly large...) signature pic are Hoosier 225/45 front and 245/40 rear. I've read where people have put 245s up front, but I just don't see how. I have a 5mm spacer in there now and I can't get half of my little finger between the strut and the tire (I know the gap is less than 1/4"). Hoosier tires for a given size run pretty wide, those 225s are wider than my Bridgestone S03s that are 235/40!

So, they fit the stock rims just fine.

How does this avatar thing work anyway?

I gather that it's something controlled by the moderator and not by the user until one or more are assigned? Curious.

Jon,

Maybe I could get one too, since I'm the one that took the pics for the ones used by Ron, MGRMLN and DannO?

Yep. I'll do another bunch in a month or so. Shafer actually has to do the work, not me. Moderators can't do avatars.
