T, when I read that thread back when, I shot the Maggie Rep on here (the one that answered the questions) is this something I should be worried about and he assured me it was not. I still have the PM. I bought my Maggie through SLP, so they're getting a nice letter this week along with a copy of Cunningham's bill to fix it. I spent the extra money for the warranty also, but they come 3yr/36K out of the box and it wasn't even a year or 900 miles on the Maggie. Believe me bro, I'm raising holy hell!! (Even though it's fixed, it's just bad business when you drop that kind of money)

Bro, you're in Texas right, just enter as many local meets, talk to shops, schmooze them, tell them to make you decals and you'll sport them on your ride, but one hand washes the other, so what will they give you in return. To them it's the best way of advertising. Obviously with 2200 miles you know mines not my DD.

I'd sell my car in a heartbeat for one man. A ZR1 even looks and functions just fine the way it sits from the factory. That's the miracle of it. Something can always be done to a car, but the ZR1 is just amazing. If your heart says yes, it's a done deal, and the trade will be made.

No, no, no, you guys missed my point.....And didn't read the rhythm correctly.

My sig used to say 650 HP, but after a message from CMS I had to change a number. But thank you for the compliments, as you always give! You guys push me, and T there's no way I would or could justify spending that much $$ for a new ZR1, now that one that Kurt showed, maybe! I like the Z06 Vettes and that's one car the Cunningham MotorSports specializes in giving big HP too.

I really do LOVE my car and can't wait to get it back, and with the upgrades I've done, i.e., DSS Carbon Drive Shaft, 1400 HP shafts, upgraded clutch, etc..I really want to rip around in it, and pull up next to that new ZR1, or Lambo, or Ferrari owners and dust them. If would be foolish to sell it unless I could get a great price on it, but with the tricks up my sleeve, I could get a nice price. There's a lady in Tennessee, who's husband is a drag racer and she is absolutely in love with the car, and it would be perfect for her since her hubby is a gear head....Gotta respect a chick that loves the car that much. She saw it when I had it on ebay and wanted to pull the trigger, but I yanked it to sell Pierre the wheels, get 20s, the cam, and then everything else followed. So with 2200 miles on it, and many brand new parts, I'm certainly going to see what I can get.

But like I said, the coup de grace is when it's in print for all to see, then that increases it's value, and right now it's in line for 3 mags, but talk is cheap so we'll see who steps to the plate first. But I've always had a love for the Vettes, my first one back in 1989. Unlike you Brotha P, I have no children and my wife is scared shitless to even ride in the car with me and that was before, I'm sure it'll only be worse now with the upgrades.

So for now I want to feel what 700 RWHP feels like, I have the best adjustable suspension, Pedders (Thank you JusticePete & Deb), and other components so lets see what she'll do in a few events, racing that is. Because nothing satisfies me like speed, the rush, the high, I love it.

So for now, this will wait.......

Yeah I don't think you can sell that car! Cause then ill pretty much have no reason to get on Camaro5 well except for the random questions I have every now and then. But for the most part I get right on your page to see what's new with the Camaro!

So somebody wants to pay for some more mods, well hop aboard the Kronix $ Train!!!




Hammer Denver & Packers tomorrow

Denver is -9 and they'll win by 20+
2nd best Peyton Manning QB rating in career.
Manning has beaten Ravens 9 straight games
Cold weather forcing Manning to wear glove
(2-0 SU with 6 TD and 1 INT wearing glove this season)
Ravens played 4 playoff teams outside of their division this regular season: gave up over 34 ppg
Ravens at altitude:Mile High
Short week (Sunday till Saturday)
One less day to recover. One less day to prepare.
Team knows it matters: Ravens changing travel schedule.
(change of routine, another less day to prepare)
Have not played in Denver since 2006.
Older teams have more trouble.
Denver led 31-3 after 3 quarters in first game vs. Ravens this year



GB is getting +3 and they'll win outright in San Fran.
You beat San Fran by running on them.
5 games they didnít win this year: yielded an average of 143 yards on the ground.Packers as an underdog are 18-6 against the spread last 24
Last 4 games: 11 touchdowns and zero INTs for Rogers.
Rogers 3-1 on road in playoffs.





Now onto the game you care about...

Atlanta-2.5 to Seattle
Unfortunately, I think your Hawks run comes to an end on Sunday. The Skins WRs are no match compared to White, Gonzo, Julio Jones * Matty Ice, the only advantage Skins had was at RB and the rushing attack, but when RGIII went down it was all over....Plus the loss of Chris Clemons will hurt them. To play this game, Seattle will have traveled 8,215 miles in less than 7 days. That takes a lot out of a team, and a rookie QB, especially playing in the dome. The Public is on the Hawks, the public loses 80% of the time, Las Vegas wasn't built by winners.
Seattle on road since 2002: 38% ATS (32-52-1)
Seattle lost to Lions and Dolphins on road this season
After losing a game, Falcons 20-3 ATS(Against the spread)
Ryan 33-6 SU at home in career
Ryan: 11 TD and 1 INT streak


Pats-9 to Texans, this number is a little inflated because Vegas knows the public loves the Pats & the Favorites. Last weekend was the first time in decades all 4 favorites won & covered the spread. I have this game at Pats-6, but Texans do not impress me. So I'll probably tease them down in a 2 team 7 point teaser with Denver-2 & NE-2, for around $10K, since I'm on house money.
As for the Pats/Texans game, the only thing that scares me is 80% of the $ is on NE.
NE beat Texans 5 weeks ago by 30+pts & No Gronkowski
In the last 4 games of regular season:
Texans covered by 2-points at home vs. Colts
In the other three games,
they lost against the spread by: 25 points, 23 points, and 17 points.
Houston: 3 offensive TDs the last 4 games
Coach Kubiack 41% in career as a dog of 4 or more points (13-19 ATS)

I lean Pats in this game with quite a few points scored.


It's time to Get$$$$$Yo!!!!

Solomon would've lost that bet Kurt LOL! Not bad over the weekend though 6-2, Saturday killed me with Pack & Broncos going down, I knew I should've gone with my gut on Ravens, I love Ray Lewis and hope he goes out a Champion! But made up for it today, hitting all 4 Overs on the Totals on all 4 games & Atlanta+4 & Over in a teaser & I wound up taking Tim's Seahawks +3 and they ALMOST pulled it off, I was pulling for them. What a great game!! I know that's probably all Greek language to you amigo, but I certainly don't depend on that money for a ZR1, that's just play money

Why is it Dyno's break when my car is there??? The Dyno at CMS is broke and Ryne's 99% done with my car, but just needs to fine tune it and then road test it. I'm hoping to have it back by Tuesday or Wednesday

We all know what John does for a living, he mods his car. I don't think he has time for a regular day job, or part time job for that matter.

Thanks for making me laugh Luke!!! It pays to marry a Doctor But honestly, I've busted my butt in the Food & Beverage biz for 30 years, so once she got done school she said, you do what you love. So now I work with a good friend in the surf industry & made some smart moves with real-estate so being a landlord has helped my modding addiction.

I meant the betting lingo brother Kurt, but hey maybe you do throw a wager or two
I just can't wait to hear the lope of the cam, it'll probably sound like that beautiful 69 you have in your garage!! Videos will follow, when it ever gets out
