  1. you took time to not only comment on the caulk but actually take a screen shot to post. You should see the inside of the compressor closet door trim! I don't do handy work so stay like it is it will lol.
  2. Had a boo boo plus an update on how the ceramic and Xpel clear protective film are doing about a year later. Had a boo boo plus an update on how the ceramic and Xpel clear protective film are doing about a year later.
  3. Well, we'll see. The typical buyer I'm coming across seems to be really concerned about a warranty, and once you get in to the 60-70K range, $10K isn't that big of a difference to some I think. WHAT! You didn't watch my video, now my feelings are hurt!
  4. Things that make you go hmmmmmm
  5. We shall see
  6. Time to turn up the boost GG!
  7. Not on the Challenger, but might be pertinent to some of you running a water/meth setup. I found a VERY inexpensive solution that works great.
  8. This is all correct. Simply driving the car will eventually set everything ready if there are no problems with one of the emission controls. The drive pattern I describe above is just a shortcut. It's there for when work is done on a car like new battery etc and a tech needs to get them all set before handing car back to a customer. Thankfully they've banned emissions tests where I live so no more of that crap for me.
  9. Yep, this year I'm going to push the YouTube channel a bit since it's become such a big thing. It's funny because years ago it was just an extension of my website, now it's really taken over. Content each week does become challenging as I don't always have an active project, so some content will be project stuff and other content will be something different. I am going to start a series on the shop build since I've dozens of questions about that, so that'll be coming soon.
  10. Pretty surprising even without a tune. Obviously with a tune controlling the fans, you'd keep the temps consistently lower, but still something to consider regardless.
  11. When I had the installer come do Xpel clear protective film on the Hellcat, he highly recommended I consider a ceramic coating as well. Xpel thread/video here: I decided to have him come back out after several friends also recommended the ceramic and swear by its ability to make the car so much easier to clean up.It's impressive stuff for sure. The installer cleaned the car, did a quick paint correction to insure no swirls or imperfections were sealed in, and installed the ceramic. The car had a decent shine to it before, but it was crazy watching it buff to a very high gloss like a just waxed vehicle has. It's super slick to the touch and water just falls off. Went right over the stripes, Xpel PPF, and trim. I asked him the difference between the pro stuff and the consumer, and he said the consumer version is a heavily "watered down" product. The pro stuff can flash cure if it hits any water spots, and if you don't buff it properly will harden and leave marks that take a high level of polishing with a cutting compound to correct, and sometimes even wet sanding if bad enough and the companies producing it don't want the liability so to get the pro stuff you have to go through training and get accredited. Sounds reasonable to me, but just repeating what he told me. He did hit a small water spot by the back bumper where water hid under the panel lip. He did get out his polisher to correct it and reapply a bit of product.
  12. The above is exactly why I had it coated. I don't have time for all that polishing and waxing anymore and this stuff will last 10 years at least. I literally didn't have to even wash the Hellcat from September until April. Dust just blows off as I drive down the road, and a quick spot detailer removed bugs from the front. Cost is location specific driven by competition in the market. It also depends heavily on how much paint correction is required. In my case it was zero since I had it done when the car was brand new.
  13. Drama and some after track clean up tips, where you at Cruzking, you need to see this.
  14. Haha
  15. You can do older ones as well. It's cheaper on new cars because less paint correcting involved. It is awesome stuff and cost depends on local economy I've found. There is a consumer version available I'm going to try on the Camaro. I'll look a the log and email ya.
  16. I've been really driving my YouTube channel for 2018.....channels have started to take over where website/blogs used to be prevalent. I'd appreciate you guys subscribing to the channel to help me continue to grow it. If you know people who'd like the content, recommending it to them is appreciated. I've made it a point to publish one video per week since January 2018. Thanks in advance! Here's the channel - http://www.youtube.com/speedysgarage
  17. Congrats Chuck. You're gonna love it.

  19. Yep that's how I understand it now....totally confusing at the time and even the officials handing out the awards didn't understand lol. Man wish I'd known you were there. I may try to do the Heavy Street class in Aug.
  20. Yeah, a Daytona from what I could tell.
  21. Well, he certainly went off the deep end That thing ran like a 4.3 @170!
  22. A little follow up content - Barn Burner was awesome and got to see Rob Goss make a pass and hang out with him a bit as well.
  23. Awesome news!
  24. Hahah, so I had to dig to find some info, but apparently it's an unspoken thing that if you win one of the top awards they do hand out the index awards to other participants. Rules don't say that, but I guess that's how they do it. So I technically one Runner-Up as fastest HEMI street car with the Demon being the overall winner. Wish I had known, I'd have set the car back to kill and gone after the Demon instead of slowing it down to 11.00.
