I really should merge these two threads...lol

Do you remember when you first (and subsequently) asked me how I knew all the stuff I knew about cars/mechanical stuff/etc?

And I told you that I've torn up more stuff than most people have ever owned...


Welcome to the club.

yes and no.

a friend of mine offered me his cat back system (4th gen) years ago if I helped him swap from shorties to LT's. well, when I cut the tube right before it goes over the axle... I cut it on the bend. so when I later tried to install my cutout, the clamp wouldnt hold quite right. so I sold the electric motor and basically, when I wanted the "cutout", I'd mash the gas and the torque twist of the car would pull the exhaust clamp loose from the part going to the muffler...

I've got a vid somewhere of it...lol

edit...



I've got another one...somewhere... its not showing in my photobucket, so it may be elsewhere... I'll look for it

I think this is the flame throwing one... out the rear




found another from the first time I seafoamed the car...

http://www.myspace.com/camarospike23...rnout/10631047

btw... I figured out a way for you do run water/meth with a maggie

I called it my "2nd gear cutout" cus when I'd lay into it, as soon as I'd go to 2nd gear, it would pop loose.
