looks great! however, your photos do not do it justice. also, take some better photos of the rear disc. that's my next mod. yours looks good!. how does it work? and do you have any problems with the front drop bottoming out?

got a few pics up in the gallery of the drop kit & scoop mod !
Nice, I have the TRD BBK front and SOS rear disk conversion, putting it on next week...

How do the brakes feel?

I will be putting a 4-link rear during the winter and may use the SOS front system to lower the front for autocross and road racing...

Stickers?

Some of us race our XR's (drag racing is for fast cars, autocrossing is for fast drivers)!

I have my race number on year round along with my 2 sponsors and the contingency for SCCA racing on the national tour, some of us are proud of the racing we do and do not just cruise around town looking to race street lights...

By the way, I hand painted 'TRD' of my open hood scoop, I kept the mesh thing and opened it up and painted the letters in, not perfect up front but from a distance it shows up nicely!
