Congratulations! It sounds awesome, I like the camera glasses. Wish we had a video of a passing by. I guess your not going to have any passengers, that sure is a lot of wiring lol. I like the front exits you don't see that a lot, you sure made a lot of room for them tho. Glad to see you finally got it down and out for a ride bet it felt so great. I didn't realize how long you had been working on it til I went back and looked at the date. You've come so far with only a few months til spring. And here I was super impatient working on mine for a few months haha. Just as you got it all together your going to tear it apart lol I guess what else is there to do in the winter time. Good luck and enjoy the new year!!

Hey thx man. I feel really dumb cause I got it all done in the last 2 months, but it has sat in my garage for over 3 years with me touching it rarely. It wouldve been pretty sick if I had come out with it 3 years ago.

Wiring looks bad but it isnt, just have to mount my panel and wires will be tucked away. Plus that was the tach wires with jumper wires to hot and ground. Cant wait to hit the track

Default slight update

No major changes. Sold my racepak sportsman and got the v300sd. weather finally about to break. Gonna get the front suspension dialed in and maybe take the car to get it scaled.

A few updates, What I thought was a coolant leak is actually oil and it my be leaking down from rear of intake. I got the front end aligned, added head lites,bought new rear rims(12x15 5inbs and 29.5x10.5W's) for the car. I should be heading to the track in a week or so. I drove car around the block a few times and it pulls to the left going only 15mph and this is after I got it aligned 2x*:shock:*

Oh yeah I did install my racepak and dash, just need to mount d.s collar. Bought a front end limiter kit from team z just need to install it.*

Default finally made it to the track

Finally made it to the track with my car. car ran great for being first time ever. Went down the track straight as an arrow, really effortless to drive. first pass of the foot brake and idle was 1.45 60foot 9.22@145mph didnt feel anyfaster than my 10sec car was.

second pass was off trans brake 3500rpm was 1.39 60 foot 9.00@151mph

car leaves like a pig, converter is too tight. made 2 more passes and yes I did get my 8sec pass and this is all motor passes.

Gonna get a 5200/5400 stall convertor, as I am looking for atleast 8.50's on motor. will have vids in a few days.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxBcCdkTs7Q

dont have 2nd pass. Here is 3rd pass off the brake at 4400 but I dont thing it reved that hi. I forgot to shift, shift lite not working. bounced it off the limiter at 8 grand shifted and then down shifted at the 1000ft mark by accident.
