talking about the battery being disconnected....

For the third time of me owning this car, the nut was not tight enough on the negative side of the battery and I couldnt start the car for 40 minutes. I have subs in the back so I cant physically reach the handle to open the trunk. im about 5'9.

I then got a ticket for being in the spot too long because I couldnt start it.

What a day.

Agreed, I do feel a difference but it is no as dramatic as stock-vararam was. I think that might attest to how good the gains are that the vararam provides. I trapped 96-97 stock, now I consistently trap 100-101 with A LOT of different wheel set ups(street tires 18 and 20s, DRS 18 and 20 inches). Just haven't been able to get a good 60'.
I'm hitting the track within 2 weeks so that will prove what the manifold and spacer do. I'm hoping for a minimum of a 102 trap, ideal conditions and if the gains are true, it should trap at least 103-4.

Wtf! They normally are told to not ticket cars with the owner in them or near the car to avoid confrontation...
