No. He has "blue" on the brain. It makes him think slower.
:ninja: we all have blue blood thats why the veins look blue. it's not until the air makes contact like in an open wound that it turns red. :ninja:

Either way like its been proven before in this website the blue cars are the fastest

Venous blood is dark red and looks "blue" when looking at it through the skin due to a wavelength phenomenon of light. There is no such thing as ''blue blood". Trust me on this one:thinkerg:

On the medieval discussion on 'blue bloods'. Just take a look at the tubes used when someone draws blood from your arm, that blood is more or less oxygen depleted, venous blood, on it's way back to the heart and lungs; and is not exposed to open air; unless of course you have a sadist or vampire drawing your blood. ;)

...back to the topic, have a look at the Vogtland springs, engineered and manufactured in Germany. They are available from Hot Parts/J&M Products. www.hotpart.com. The springs are $207.50 including free ground shipping, and a really cool shade of purple! ;) These springs are used in BMW M series and MB AMG series automobiles, and yes they decided to make a set for the Shelby GT500! I am getting a set of the Vogtland Sport Springs installed this coming Thurs., 9-11-08. Along with J&M LCAs(no relo bracket), UCA, and adjustable panhard bar. I'm leaving the stock tokico dampers in the car for now. The springs will lower the car 1.2" all around, leaving the overall rake aspect intact. Will most certainly post to the forum after I take her out for a little test drive or three. Some more info below:

J&M Products has found the Vogtland Spring to be the best on the market. After evaluating the other springs, such as Eibach and H&R, we have determined that Vogtland is the best quality and the only spring we will continue to carry. Vogtland is the only spring which is made using the exclusive to Vogtland spring VVS alloy. By using the VVS alloy Vogtland is able to manufacture a superior spring which is up to 30% lighter than other springs of the same spring rates. This will reduce your unsprung weight and give you better handling, response, and road feel. These springs come with a 10 year no sag warranty.



Front/Rear
Spring lb/inch Working Rate lb/inch DropFront/Rear
Front 152 lb./in. - 250 lb./in. 152 lb./in. - 250 lb./in. 1.2" or 30mm
Rear 121 lb./in - 225 lb./in. 121 lb./in. - 225 lb./in. 1.2" or 30mm

Implementing the most current Wafios spring coiling technologies and our proprietary post coiling processes ensures that you receive a spring that meets the most current rules and regulations for linear spring rate characteristics. Our post coiling process includes tempering, shotpeening and a multi-stage presetting process. Finally the springs are phosphate treated and powder coated to provide a superior corrosion barrier. VR racing springs are tested to perform under the most difficult Motorsports environments. VOGTLAND utilizes the most current generation Instron spring testing equipment so you can be assured that the spring rate is within 2% of nominal. We also implement rigorous dynamic testing standards to guarantee our racing springs do not lose load capacity to ensure your setup before and after the race. When operating near solid height over the course of a race, VOGTLAND VR racing springs will not let you down.

Your advantages for more power are:







significant less weight







more spring travel







obvious higher spring force
