  5. Congrats Mike, my Dad lasted about 3 weeks after retiring from MNPD, and has worked stocking shelves for Scott's Lawncare ever since
  6. Here's what it looks like for me....

  8. Happy New Year everybody!
  9. Typically these aftermarket fuel systems have a relay independent of the car's electrical system. I had two of them go bad. I installed the fuel system myself and had the relay mounted under the passenger seat close to the fuel hat. I bet it's either that or a fuse, but most likely the relay. I have a video on my youtube channel of the install that may help.
  10. Could be a collapsed lifter. Have a video on my youtube channel where I had that issue.
  11. Check fuel pump relay, specifically if you're running an aftermarket setup like Fore.
  12. I heard a rumor Orakge Krush will be there But Go Man Go is my race car now
  13. Cool, will be fun GG! We can both eat burritos as we blast down the track LMAO

  15. 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.
  16. Picked up a 4" aluminum dampened drive shaft from DSS. Nice piece, easy install, fit like a glove. No noise or vibrations up to 150MPH.
  17. The shop is set to support a Bendpak 2 post lift. That's what I'll likely install when the need arises.
  18. I tried to buy a Demon DS. First of all they're crazy expensive, and second even with my contacts I wasn't able to purchase one without a Demon VIN. Just do the DSS Al, save a few bucks and have fun.
  19. These guys need to get on board with CF9.
  20. Thanks, yeah I edited out the wheel well detailing Dale LOL. Yep Alan, 10.50s bone stock with just the tires/wheels and a DSS drive shaft for safety. I was expecting 10.80s or maybe 10.70s so I'm thrilled. Conditions were good with about a +100 DA. One other thing is that my supercharger had to be replaced on the car due to the bearing issue that impacted quite a few HCs. They had a bad batch of bearings or something and the blower would start whining really bad. Mine started about 1700 miles and the dealer swapped it out for an updated supercharger P/N. It's possible the new bearings freed up a few horses. Car made 670RWHP on the dyno the next weekend after the track. Mike at OST thinks it'll get in the high 9s with just a tune!
  21. Yep forgot I had the Eibach kit on OK.
  22. No offense taken whatsoever, don't sweat that junk. I agree 100% that built cars have more character. No it's a good question not slinging mud. I was either lucky, or good, but I'll take lucky any day LOL. I had a DSS chromoly two piece drive shaft in OK. I came across one cheap, but raced the stock shaft for a long time. Wheel hop will kill parts, that is for sure. Anytime I even thought I had wheel hop I let off the gas immediately. I ended up making enough power that I just blew through it and only had to watch it on DRs at the strip, so I switched to slicks and never had another problem.
  23. You can log AFR at least on the Hellcat now. I do.
