  1. I've been out of the scene for a while, glad to see that not only are you still doing vids, but they're still well-executed and informative. Good stuff, Speedy!
  2. I like everything except the color of the inner part of the grille -- I think the lightness of the inside of the grille (grey? white?) is a bit glaring - it rather draws the eye to it. If the color were darker, say the same red as the rest of the car, or black, like the standard bezel, I think it would look even tighter.
  3. Very cool, congratulations! I'd love to see it in person if you do make a trip out to SA Raceway!

  5. Dang, a 100 shot of N2O? Nice! Looking good, Sean!
  6. Haha Never say never, eh Sam?
  7. I installed mine this afternoon. Quick and simple, just the four bolts holding it on (I also kept my original). On mine, there is a very thin whitish-colored gasket that runs the circumference of the intake port where the TB meets it, which slipped partly off when I took the old one off. I re-seated it carefully and put the new TB in and replaced the throttle control sensor. After everything was back in place, I started the car. It idled at around 1100 or so for several minutes before dropping down to its usual 750-760 RPM. I then took it for a ten or so minute drive. It's difficult for me to be objective, but the throttle response is at least as good as it was with the original. It was responsive through all gears and varying RPM ranges. It's certainly no worse. Worth it? <shrug> In my case, all of my upgrades are very much piecemeal at this point, so I look at it as somewhat of an investment that might nicely complement future upgrades. We'll see. Maybe I'll notice some difference next time I make it out to the track, which should be Wednesday I'm hoping.
  8. Just for comparison, my stock suspension R/T, with the Goodyear F1s, measured 31" in the front and 32" in the rear. I also measured it with the Nitto tires, and that changed the measurement by -1" all around (the air pressure was lower in the Nittos, though).
  9. Those are very cool -- thanks for sharing these pictures!

  12. I ordered one from him also -- I think he's a little backlogged with orders right now. I'll post my thoughts after I get it put on. Some say they've gotten improved throttle response, maybe it's all a placebo effect...
  13. Back home from the Mile -- wow, what a great day! I got to meet and hang out with everyone: Kenny, Allen, Dale, Doug, Sam, Jay, Karl -- they made me feel welcome and made sure I had food, water, and sunblock (high was almost 90deg in Beeville and very sunny after the clouds went away). Dale gave me a polo shirt -- very cool, thanks Dale! In exchange I tried to stay out of their way! I arrived just in time to see Sam hit his 193.8, then got to watch everyone work together to try to get Karl where he needed to be -- there was some interesting tire/wheel swapping - it was awesome - just a great bunch of folks. I'm glad I made the trip.
  14. Congrats to Karl, Adam, John -- you guys rocked the Mile, was great to see it happen! Karl did an amazing job of driving the car -- he had a bit of a close call at the end of his 200mph run, and it wasn't just blowing the head gasket, but I'll let him relay all the details.
  15. Way to go!!!! video?
