Hit up one of our local tracks the other night with a few friends, this was the first time I ran the car with the new Mickey Thompson drag radials I got. Those babies are some sticky A$$ tires!! They took a full second and some tenths off my previous runs with the Nittos. Another good thing with those DRs is that I can drive to the track with them and not have to do my wheel/tire change there, like I would if I had gotten slicks. Below was my best time out of 4 passes. I'm still running the same tune I had when I was in Cali, so I really think I can put this car in the 9s once I get my new tune from East Coast Supercharging. 2 more weeks for that cause they need to get their Vettes ready for Corvettes at Carlisle. Speaking of Corvettes....

I made it official with my order on the Stingray yesterday, as I heard from my source that production should be starting fairly soon. Since my dealer is the top Vette dealer in the country, they're going to be getting the most of any dealer off the bat, so I wanted to make sure that SSYNSTR2 will be part of the first truckload. I kept it fairly simple, just making sure I got the Z51 performance package, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, and the Dual Mode Performance exhaust, everything performance driven. I have no need for all the overpriced interior bells & whistles that come with the 2 & 3 LT packages, I'll just wait for the aftermarket companies to start putting out their go fast products once the C7 is out.

Any video of the car on the track?
What did you run for front wheels/tires?

Thank you sir, just trying to keep up with you!


Just installed some custom diamond plate kick panels I had made to go with the floor mats. I got so much stuff left to install for the potentially "new" owner, I know what I'll be doing all next week.......

Thank you my friend, Kurt! You're comments are always appreciated...As for my absence, I'll say I've been a little preoccupied with trying to turn my career in a new direction. But I've realized I've done my thread & forum friends an injustice by my vacancy. I forgot how much I enjoy writing, reading & following everything on this great forum, so I promise to be more proactive!

A Black Billet Front Speaker Trim to match up with the Billet cup holder cover & inserts, and SLP had sent me 4 or their new Black Chrome emblems to represent. I put one on the rear so far and it just seems to go perfect with the badging. Not sure where, I'm going to put the others yet...I'll be adding a few more things and post up pics when they're complete.

Thanks for swinging by!

Thank you my brotha! And coming from anyone should mean a lot, because you've created a fantastic machine & you should be proud! I always appreciate my overseas brothas continued support! I just hope you continue to accept me in the VERY NEAR FUTURE

P, my first overseas brotha, we will always be connected thanks to a set of rims & tires, every time I see da Bullet it makes me smile knowing I have a little bit riding on that whip!!! As for my absence, I may not have been posting all the time, but I'm subscribed to all my brothers threads, so I always do see what's going on. Just with the move, and selling some properties, and gearing for a new career path, it seemed that life just got in the way. But like I said, I'm always in the loop! You've made me very proud from your accomplishments & I wish you continued success!!!

Thanks RC, you're another LTL, as I like to call them, Long Time Local, to my build and have always been one of my biggest supporters, and I thank you for that from the bottom of my heart! The SLP badges do fit perfectly, it's a shame because the pics really don't do it justice as it looks more silver, but it's really Black Chrome

Thanks Punk, that's my BABY!! It's really incredible and to be honest, that Tahoe gets more looks, stares, thumbs up, people asking what is it, and telling me what a great job I did on it, than my ZLX gets Don't get me wrong, the Camaro snaps necks every time I have it out, it's just I drive my Hoe every day, and she's been very, very good to me!
