This does deserve a full post that I (shockingly) don't have time for at work. I have all the pictures I took uploaded, I just have to sort through and put the best looking and least obnoxious ones in the gallery.
Saying PKA wheels are no longer the big guns is slightly disingenuous though -- they beat every car but one, and lost to that one by something like .063 seconds, yeah? Were the field so saturated with those wheels, more would likely show up in the top spots. It is fair to say that there are better wheels, however.
I found the KDR/Fringe combo aesthetically lovely, although I was slightly disappointed about the speed. Good thing in buggy there's an uphill part.
