  2. dumbass http://www.flkeysnews.com/news/local/crime/article204397634.html Bosco the dog was locked in the bed of a pickup truck for two days and on Thursday, Bosco’s owner was locked up in the Florida Keys jail. David Varie, 39, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of abandoning an animal after Bosco, a male black-lab mix estimated to be 2 or 3 years old, was found in the back of Varie’s Dodge Ram 1500, which was parked and not running at the Marathon Publix around 12:55 p.m. Varie Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Michael Maleta wrote in his arrest report that a manager at Publix reported getting to work at 6 a.m. and seeing the parked truck. When he took a lunch break around 11:45, the truck was still there and he saw Bosco in the bed of the truck. That’s when he called the Sheriff’s Office. Maleta wrote that the bed cover was open only about 2 inches and that “I placed my hand on the window of the vehicle to feel the temperature and immediately removed it because of how hot the glass was. I did not notice any food or water inside the vehicle for the dog. At that point in fear for the dog’s well-being, I opened up the tailgate to the truck to let the dog out. Once the dog was out of the vehicle he was extremely hot to the touch and panting extremely heavily, the dog then urinated for approximately 20 seconds.” The Florida Keys SPCA was called and took possession of Bosco. That’s when Varie walked up to Maleta and told the deputy that “the dog was his and that the apartment where he was staying, approximately a quarter mile away, did not allow dogs.” Varie reportedly told Maleta the dog was in the truck “approximately two days but his 19-year-old son would come down a couple times a day to let the dog out.” SPCA staffer Hugh Smith used a digital thermometer to measure the temperature in the truck bed and cab and “the temperature of the truck bed ranged from 87 degrees to 102 degrees. The temperature of the cab ranged from 108 degrees to 109 degrees,” the deputy wrote. Friday, Varie, who also is charged with pot possession because he had a joint when arrested, remained in the county jail on $3,000 bond.
  3. I know there have been plenty in the past, but lets get this party started with this one. http://www.lex18.com/news/woman-arrested-for-raising-cane-at-winchester-car-dealership A Madison County woman was arrested accused of "raising cane" at a Winchester car dealership. Laqueeta Penman and her boyfriend went to the Rod Hatfield Dealership in Clark County to trade in their car. They got a Dodge Challenger, but Penman says her boyfriend changed his mind. She says the problem started when they tried to get the old car back - there was a disagreement about money and getting the key back. According to the citation, Penman was "raising cane" at the dealership. Investigators say a deputy asked her to leave several times when she was being disorderly but she wouldn't. Penman and her boyfriend are accused of fighting a deputy after he tried to arrest Penman. The citation says the deputy tried to use a taser, but Penman grabbed it out of his hand. "I don't know who was the scariest. Either it was the detective attacking me was the scariest, or the people at the car shop who watched it. It was 20 people and no one helped," Penman said. "I was getting beat down there." LEX 18 tried to speak with witnesses at the dealership, but a manager said there was no comment. Penman is facing several charges including assaulting a police officer and disarming a police officer.

Sheriff Robert Matheny said police are looking for any information on the owner of a dark gray, newer model Dodge Challenger with a temporary license plate. “We don’t think it was a West Virginia temporary plate, possibly an out-of-state temporary plate,” he said. “The last known location was at the Jane Lew exit on I-79 south.” A deputy had the car on U.S. 50 east near Wilsonburg reaching an excess of 100 mph on radar, Matheny said. “There was another deputy in the area that attempted to get behind the vehicle to stop it,” he said. “Then the pursuit began, they were on Rt. 50 east to I-79 south and the pursuit became too dangerous. They were reaching speeds of 140 miles per hour.” Matheny said the deputy backed off and state police got involved to maintain visual contact into Lewis County. Anyone with information is asked to call the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department at 304-623-6655 or submit a tip of West Virginia Crime Stoppers.
  6. http://www.thedrive.com/news/18954/dodge-challenger-driver-arrested-for-doing-145-mph-flipping-off-tokyo-speed-cameras Police in Tokyo have finally arrested a man who was allegedly spotted driving 145 mph his Dodge Challenger on an expressway—and flipping off the speed cameras that recorded his impromptu Mid Night Club audition—after a two-year search, The Asahi Shimbun reports. On the night of January 29, 2016, authorities say forty-one-year-old Yoshimune Shirai piloted his muscle car onto the Chuo Expressway and accelerated to nearly 150 mph. The fateful run was tracked by Tokyo's Orbis speed camera system, which captured an image of the Challenger flying down the road with the driver's middle finger raised proudly in the air. Shirai was arrested on Thursday. It took more than two years to track him down in part because the Challenger was missing its front license plate. However, the region's extensive network of speed cameras eventually captured five more images of the car speeding in various locations, and police were able to piece together a positive identification...of the car, that is. So far, Shirai has reportedly proclaimed his innocence, telling investigators that there's no proof that he was the one behind the wheel at the time. Japan has a strong history of street racing, immortalized in part by the famous Mid Night Club racers and other crews that were active in the 1980s and 1990s. Unfortunately, you needed to hit 160 mph to join their ranks—so it looks like Shirai missed the mark in more ways than one
  7. Is Craig coming?

  9. I have LT's on my NA 6.1 based 426, they are ARH and awesome. Did i miss something?

  11. http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2018/02/27/richmond-carjacking-suspect-slams-into-home-during-pursuit/ RICHMOND (CBS SF) — Two suspects have been arrested after the pursuit of a Dodge Challenger involved in a Richmond carjacking ended with the vehicle crashing into the garage of a vacant home, authorities said. Richmond police said one of its officers was patrolling a Iron Triangle neighborhood when he saw a distinct car – a Dodge Challenger with a black stripe on the side and stripes on top. The officer remembered an armed carjacking incident a few day before that involved that same car. The officer called for back-up and when the other officers arrived attempted a traffic stop. When the officers were giving orders to the occupants, the driver of the carjacked Challenger stepped on the accelerator and took off. The officers got back into their patrol cars and started a pursuit. The Challenger had a head start and the officers couldn’t catch up. But Challenger driver lost control and crashed into a garage. When the officers arrived at the crash scene, they began a search aided by tracking dogs. Both suspects were discovered hiding and arrested. No one in the car or home were injured.
  12. That is pretty cool.
  13. 21k is a decent trade in value, I wouldn't sweat it.
  14. Challengers have dropped in value a crap ton since the Hellcat came out. If you are lucky 25,000.
  15. Well, maybe for the Mahle drop in pistons on the first engine. But the 2nd engine was a cam bearing issue.
  16. When I had a D1 Procharger on a 426 at 12 PSI, with big red race valve, it was fucking awesome. I kept blowing shit up, not the Prochargers fault though.
  17. I know of one person that can not run his Kenne Bell more than once down the track without needing to cool it off.
  18. My P1SC and D1SC did not have an independent belt. There may be an option, but I am not familiar with it.
  19. Just a better overall package. The Kenne Bell will heat soak like Al Gores global warming bullshit.
