Alright, I'm starting my thread now since there's about 4 shipments headed to me at this very moment in time. I've decided to start with suspension and work my way into speed. I autocross more than anything and with a top speed of around 50mph, speed isn't my top priority. Stability and handling, that's where it's at! So... I'll start this and will add all information and pics as we move forward. Should have a huge update after this coming weekend.

Baby Hippo: 2013 Abarth, cabrio
Current mods: NONE

Project weekend #1 8/1/15 plans:
Install all incoming goodies... stay tuned.

Beautiful car, and it sounds like you've got lots planned. I will stay "tuned!"

It's been a crazy year and I let this one slip by me.
We did some stuff :)

Installed a full Bilstein coil over set up (which lowered the car DRASTICALLY)
Installed the Neu F big torsion bar
Installed the big Road Race Motorsports, Red, Intake
Installed the motor mount torque insert (no difference really)
Put the Falken Azenis on the car finally

Then I took it to Autocross to see if I wanted to keep going...
I shaved 5 seconds of my time with these mods. So we're going to keep going! Spring will bring down pipe, FMIC and tune... followed by some personalized additions still to be determined.

What was really fun was putting the car on dollies and putting it into a spot for the winter with literally a 3 inch allowance lol! We pack em in like sardines over the winter! The struggles of a 2 car garage and 6 cars ha!
