  1. i race that dude in the vette every wednesday night in the street stick class. That guy is a good driver. Hes leading the points this year too. I won the points championship last year but this year he is putting a beating on all of us LOL. He can definitely shift that thing. I saw in the winners circle pics a red chevelle so he musta got runner up.....Im sure I will hear about it wed nite. This is the first year they have added index racing and they dont have a slow enough index for me.....I would need a 12.5.....but they do have a bracket the same day so my plan was to go and race in the bracket just to support the index days. I figure if they get decent turnout for the day maybe next year they will do it again and add a few more indexes......but yea, the wedding just happened to be on the same day as the first one they are doing. I do plan on going to the rest (2 or 3 I think?)
  2. thanks for the congrats....the track photog took about 8 of you. Who won the 11.5 class? Did you race that damn black corvette with the smiley face license plate? Heres the link to the photogs site, she does a good job if you decide to get anything from her...just go to the 11.5 index folder https://onpointimage.photoreflect.com/store/Photos.aspx?e=10257697
  3. is this you Renfrick? One of the few times I dont go to Lebanon and miss someone from this forum. But I had more important things to do like walk my daughter down the aisle LOL.

  5. I am in the market for a trailer to tow my Challenger. I havent found any threads about trailers specifically. I was wondering what everyone here recommends for an open trailer. Feel free to post up about enclosed trailers too but that is not in my budget right now. It seems there are a fair amount of members here that trailer their cars. So, some things I am really looking for clarity....how long should it be (what is the minimum length and what is overkill), load rating, aluminum vs steel, wood decking vs steel, tilt vs ramps, winch mounted on trailer....just hoping this becomes a thread to find this info in one place. I am sure there are a bunch of opinions.
  6. Well, CONGRATS on the baby girl!!.
  7. any updates wildchild?
  8. well, I really didn't want to go the power outlet route. And the nice thing about the cirkit boss is it has the 3 spare fuses, already has a relay....even someone as electrically challenged as me can hook that up. Maybe there are better places in the trunk fusebox that are controlling less vital things. Havent really checked there. Or maybe just tap the power outlet with the cirkit boss and mount it under the dash instead of in the engine compartment or trunk. After all, the shift light and any gauges are all in the cabin anyway, might make things easier in the long run if a good place can be found
  9. thanks Speedy. I also see there are a bunch of empty fuse spaces in the box. I looked them up because I was thinking of trying an add a fuse to find the amps etc, and in the owners manual there are a few just labeled spare and a few labeled 'police something'. On the inside of the box lid they all just say spare if they are empty. It is this weekends mission to get the shift light in at the very least, whether the CB is in or not....but I will be poking around electricity tonight to see if any of the empty slots have power source and if they are switched. Thank you for replying
  10. Does anyone have a good place to pick up a switched power supply.....besides the charging outlet on the passenger side of the console. On the 2014 and older models was the handy 'diesel; fused outlet in the engine compartment fuse box, but this fusebox is totally different. I am looking to mount a cirkitboss in the engine compartment like I did on my old car and use that to add a shift light, and a gauge or 2. So basically, I want Speedy's video of installing the cirkitboss and gauges, except for the new car Any info/ideas are greatly appreciated
  11. Here is my GSP mascot 'helping' change an alternator in an explorer, just making sure I got everything tight.....freakin impossible job, just another reason to hate that brand...but what are you gonna do when your son-in-law owns it (which means your daughter will be riding in it) and he doesn't know how to turn a wrench....awesome dog speedy

  13. So let me get this straight...you are using the 6.2 shortblock and putting all the 5.7 parts on it? What changes are done....paricularly are you using the stock 6.2 cam that comes with the shortblock and if so, do you treat the heads as if you are swapping a cam like change valve springs and pushrods? I ask because I am doing a cam on my 5.7 and changing springs and pushrods. So if I do this, are they required anyway for the 6.2 swap?
  14. yea, its in the same spot but it seems like even more wires and less slack on those wires than what you show.Just trying to get it out of that spot was a nightmare. And like you show in your video, there are even more wires the same color going in those connectors. I just couldnt get the thing out to get in a good place to do the soldering. Thats when I called Raptor and he told me that it didnt matter where you picked up the coil wire signal from (or the clutch)....so I just went to the source of both of them.
  15. Nice write up speedy. I have the same light with the launch feature which if I remember is why there was a clutch wire. The only difference to my technique was i went right to the coil to get the rpm feed and right to the clutch pedal to pick up the feed for that. That made it so I didnt have to get to the PCM. On a '14, that is way more packed to get at than your video shows. I used the same technique for stripping the wire sheathing and soldering the tapped wire into it....except I didnt have that cool tool. Wish I did because I basically was like a surgeon and used an exacto knife to strip it away. I may have to get that tool for the future. Also Raptor told me it didnt really matter which coil to pick up RPM signal from so since I was running a wire over to a cirkit boss, i just ran the power, ground, and rpm wire together in a loom and broke the rpm wire out and hooked to a convenient coil on the passenger side (cirkit boss I have mounted near the main fuse box. Just figured I would throw some of this out there for guys with the newer models ('11-'14). As usual speedy, great write up and video.
