I'm horrible at updating this thread.
Since my last update I have gotten a pair of Hoosier quick time pros, blown up a diff, rebuilt it and pulled some 1.6 60fts and I'm now in the process of putting in a built rear with a spool and 35 spline axles. Hoping to bring the 60 down to 1.5 or even 1.4. I'm gunning for 10s on the stock block.

|Towelie||No I just got a regular one for my car. Was kind of an emergency and I didn't have a lot of time to shop around. Didn't even think about getting the 2010 one. Are they better?|

Tested out the waterless wash from mothers, I love this stuff.
Also replaced the alternator for the second time in 2 days.

So I found out my drivers side axle is slightly bent. It's nothing serious but it just means my rear is probably gonna get built soon. I'm in the middle of buying a house so I can't do anything huge right now. That bent axle has been the source of the squeak I've had in the rear since I bought the car. I took off the brake pads and sanded of the edges so at least it stopped squeaking. The car also got new street wheels and tires today, in prep for the mm meet. No more amazing traction everywhere I go :/. My Mickeys are almost done for so I'm probably gonna get some Hoosiers to replace them. I'm also gonna be putting on some maximum motorsports caster camber plates and a new hub when my buddy gets here.
Anyway here's the new wheels. 19x10 square with 275/40/19's wrapped around them. Surprisingly my car sits almost an inch higher even though the wheels are supposedly the same diameter.

|Towelie||No it's never been on a dyno|

|braupe||I may have missed it, but have you dyno'd it yet?|

|Towelie||The 2 step? I fucking love the thing. I still have to do some tweaking with the wot shift feature but the thing leaves the hole like you wouldn't believe|

|Lemkau77||Have you been able to do much driving with the launch control? Just curious how you like it?|

I bought some stuff last night. Some caster/camber plates, a set of sumitomo htr z 3's and a new wheel hub. All in prep for the mm meet.
After I buy a house I'm gonna get some subframe connectors and motor mounts, and a few other things. A bunch of stuff I should have had all along

So my goodies got here. I'm gonna wrap them in the nitto 555 gen 2 tires as soon as I source a good deal for them. No more running skinnies on the street

Towel - Thanks for the love and support.
Don't hesitate to let me know if anything else and I'm here to help.
|March 22nd, 2016 05:05 PM|
The stuff works good but it's not 50 bucks good. You have to be real careful when you wipe it off or you'll take it all off and have to start all over. Sorry I forgot to take pictures.
On another note, I found a station around me that sells e85. Maybe a conversion is in my future.

Bought some street wheels today and got a screaming deal thanks to @AMAlexLazarus now I just need to buy some tires and I'll be good to go for the MM meet this summer

That sounds like a pretty stout motor. I could see finding a space to put it being a big issue though. Post up some pictures of how that stuff works, I have a black car as well, and am curious for future reference.

|Towelie||Theres a bit of a learning curve with it but I think i've got it figured out. I think they wrote the instructions for somebody who is much more generous with the paint than me, as I've done a lot of chips and still have a full bottle of paint. I just mainly have to tackle the passenger side door because that paint is fucked, from when the trailer the car was on blew a tire. This car is eventually gonna get a full respray but this is helping a fuck ton.|

|Cammin' 08||Dr colorchip isnt bad. Don't expect it to look brand new again but it will look way better. You can do multiple laye4s also to fill bigger chips.|

I don't have a lot of info on it. It's custom built though and the guy says it's rated for 1400. The guy was setting it up for 900rwhp. I'm probably not gonna get it though for the fact that I have nowhere to put it at the moment

Im also gonna give this stuff a go. I've heard good things, we'll see how it goes for me. Shit seems simple enough
|March 15th, 2016 05:55 PM|
|Lemkau77||That sound like it could be a good deal, what short block, and what is it rated for?|
|March 15th, 2016 12:30 AM|
So I just found a new built shortblock on craigslist for 4000. dude had the car in the shop getting the engine and trans built and a tree fell on the car totaling it out. so he's selling the drivetrain.
man this is tempting.
