I drove all the way to Florida last week and missed GTA's and speedster's cars! (I missed GTA and speedster too, but the cars are what I went for.)

I might need to schedule another trip soon.

I want to see those videos, speedster. This has to be the most anticipated video ever! And don't forget the burn out videos when it hits the street. You might need to get another set of rear tires right away.

This is very exciting!!!

I love those NRE dyno vid's

Is the rear diff assembly gonna be a direct bolt in, or do they have more fab work to do once it's sent to Nelson?

The diff is direct bolt in, but due to the size of the CV joints on these Outlaw axles, the upper control arm must be notched and strengthened to clear them.

You and me both. Getting itchy to run it. Having severe horsepower withdrawals lately. :(

That is almost sad. Note: I said "almost."
When your car is back on the street, all the waiting will fade into the rearview mirror (VERY quickly, I might add.)

Yeah, we have made it this long, a little longer won't hurt too bad. Work has been insanely busy so I haven't had a lot of time to think about it. Gotta hire another 8-10 engineers in the next 10 days crazy.

So did you take Smaug out for a little FUN RUN now that you are back home ?

I drove over 100 miles in it. Had to charge up the battery (it was almost dead when I got back!)

The drive wasn't too overly thrilling. Had my husband with me.

I'm going to take it to the car wash today (alone) and take the long way to get there.

Alright - so that is the time to "stand on it".... Yeah .

And next year when you take your husband for a ride you'll do the kind of launch where his eyes bug-out, his nostrils flare, he grits his teeth and then grabs for support all with the flick of your foot on the accelerator. Make sure you make the passenger seat waterproof beforehand...

We took our camper/van to the service place two days ago to drop it off. I followed in the Camaro. So, we dropped off the camper for service and got ready to drive home in the Camaro. I asked "would you like to drive?" He said "no." Everytime I accelerated on the drive home and the motor growled, he looked over at me like I was going too fast. I said "I can't help it. It makes that sound when I press on the accelerator."

I won't be taking him for any thrill rides. He doesn't appreciate it. The good news is, her rarely rides in the Camaro. I think that was maybe his 4th time in it. The other piece of good news is that he doesn't mind that I love it and he thinks it's a good idea that I have it. He does, however, think I'm a bit obsessed with it.

I can't wait to see/hear your car. This must be a very exciting time for you.

I just love the colour of your Fbird. Looking good. Big work bee going on this weekend getting the Pro Street cars ready for our trip south. Bakersfield next weekend for testing and then on to Vegas for the Super Street Nat's. Send you some pic's when I get back.
