Everything is going good with the new change, and I've been studying as much as I can. I can't delve deep into everything until the car sells. I can't have any payments on anything for this change, so the more money I free up the better. I would love to keep it though .
Yeah for now probably just some track rentals till I can scratch together the cash for a rpm cage. Yeah it'll get fixed its just tough not having your own space with enough tools to diagnose. I have to take it somewhere for them to diagnose, time consuming process.

Thats good man getting a head start on everything so when your ready your prepared. How goes the selling process? Anything coming up local? Try Ebay? Of course I think you should keep it

After some deductive reasoning I don't think there is much wrong with the gforce diff. I think on the pulls I did coming home the clutch let go finally and potentially doing some damage to the trans. Or I have transmission damage. At this point I might as well do both the trans and the clutch but sadly I have other obligations to make this summer. Looks like sta-bil and a battery tender now.

Yeah I didn't expect it to last forever, just needed it to last a bit longer than it did. Most likely the pulls on nitrous did it in, 810ft/tq no joke at 3k rpm. I got my new wheels from 360 Forged on a side note, kind of a kick to the nuts since I can't drive it.

Ita absolutely awesome....but leaves you wanting more!!!

I basically skipped all the things most people do first. Headers, intake ect. So ill add that plus i nice cam and smaller pulley and call it a day. I cant imagine how fast that will be but i also want to be able to enjoy it and not be spinning everywhere!

Haha it always does, just have to resist man!!

Yeah to be honest its nice probably to have a near stockish sounding car but with all the extra power. It gets crazy man honestly 500-600whp your border line streetable. Anything more you'll need to roll around on a drag radial. I'm hopelessly spinning I don't even know what it its like to run through 1-3 anymore lol.

So I had the car checked out today, got a 90% clean bill of health overall. No clutch/transmission issues that were able to be replicated at the time. Diff is still leaking a bit out the vent tube which is confirmed and was a little low on fluid. So its ok to drive for now just keeping an eye on the level in the diff while we sort out this leak.

Right now im 502RWHP and zero traction issues with 315/35/20 Vreds. I can be rolling at about 10mph with temps above roughly 55 and no tire spin. I love these tires.

Im sure things will change on my next round of mods in a few years, that will put me at roughly 650RWHP. But ive read people running Vreds with over 700RWhp and love them.

Thats pretty sweet man that sounds like an awesome tire. I was going to order a set of 4 for my new wheels but my back tires are still good so I'm gonna run those out first and put vreds on the front.

Yeah the more you go up especially with your blower the torque is gonna be crazy and then you'll start roasting the tires lol.

Indeed I am pretty happy. I noticed the leak is still pretty prevelent so i'm going to keep the driving to a minimum until we square that away. Doesn't seem as serious as I thought now but as we dig deeper into the leak we shall see. . I got her aligned again after all of this drivetrain stuff installed she drove great today.

Car looks so good man! Glad you are able to drive it again.

Excuse my inexperienced thought, but woulding it leak out of the vent if you overfilled the diff? I thought that was part of the point of the vent. Maybe it just had to much in it.

Either way, those car show pics are bad ass!

Thanks man! Appreciate the kind words . Normally yes it would just vent out the excess from the tube but usually there is a baffle in the top that keeps it from just pushing fluid out. It seems like when the diff heats up its just pushing fluid out. When it was inspected last it was low on fluid so it leads me to believe it keeps pushing fluid out for some reason.

We'll get to the bottom of it shortly . Then I just need some proper tire to get some track times.

Haha thanks! Actually those were from Tune-Time. The guy took some great shots of laditee as well.

I'm looking for the next show, I'm gonna try and get my new wheels on next week. I have to order new front tires for the car the ones on there now are burned out. Rears are good so I'm gonna swap them to the new wheels and run them out.

Thanks Kurt, I probably should have bought the tires through 360 and just had them come with the tires. Oh well.

Had an awesome time today at ECS's Open House. Thanks to them for putting on a great time, the car cruise was awesome went through the pine barrens of south jersey, no cops, nice roads, and I was really able to stretch the cars legs against some other high HP cars. .

I took home highest HP on the dyno challenge and I was voted best camaro at the show! Awesome stuff it was a great day and I met a lot of great people which is always what I find to be the most enjoyable thing about these get togethers.
