and of course, I flush all my fluids every 10k miles, and change the oil every 5k.

How the Raider-mobile sits now:

All the pictures taken during the day, were taken the day before I got the windows tinted.

I like the wheels, but why paint the bumper black?
Also tinted tails are a bad idea imo.
My previous bumper was kinda messed up... had paint damage, and a large portion of the left side ripped off. The pics don't show it because I was trying to hide it...

and I found some super bright bulbs for my tails, and it seems to be working, cause I'm the only one of my friends who hasn't been pulled over for the tinted tails... and we all have the same tint and stuff

Blow off valve for a nitrous setup? Huh?
It's a release valve that blows off the nitrous pressure if my solenoid goes out, or the fuel pump fails, or something goes wrong, so that it stops feeding in juice, and saves my engine from damage. Also stops the nitrous from continuing to flow any extra after I disengage it, preventing the nitrous from pooling up in my intake manifold. --just an extra precaution.

The ride is really rough actually. I have them set to 2 all around, and after long rides my back starts to hurt... And I'm 18. Granted, the roads here in SD are shit, but I don't remember it ever being this uncomfortable before. The AGX's will wear out much quicker if you set them at 1 on lowered springs, but if you want a mushy ride, you might have to resort to that.

I also have low profile tires though, so that might be contributing to the roughness
