I mean really... who doesn't know their bosses name?


Anyways, how is the motor coming along? Any other changes besides wheels?

According to Sean at ERL, my motor should be shipped by the end of this coming week... Which means I might get to see it for a little while prior to leaving for work.

Corey told me he would have it put together and the motor broken in and ready for the dyno by the time I get home... which looks like it will be 4 weeks at work this time... Trying to help out my relief who is supposed to be greeting his granddaughter into the world on or about the 17 of Feb... Still working on the schedule...

Corey did say he would wait for me to get home before actually dyno tuning it...

I hear you on the suspense ...

We are making progress though... My wheels are ordered and there will be some custom center caps with them... but that's a secret until they arrive and are installed...

I have to say I am still blown away by the service I am receiving from Mike@TF wheels.

I placed my order the other day and we discussed the variations and styles and I decided on a wheel. He has been in contact with me several times since then to ensure I get exactly what I want...

For example, this evening he called and we discussed the lip width based on the Camaro offsets required.

They often curve the rear faces to allow for more lip width, but this adds 3-4 lbs to the weight of the wheel... In my case, since these will be my land speed wheels, he wanted to get my decision as this weight could be significant when trying to set records.

After discussing it, and him sending me text message images with variations and side by side wheels to look at, I made a decision and stand by it... I'll have the curved faces on the rear 11" wide wheels, and the front faces will be straight at 9.5" wide...

I have Mike's personal cell phone number and e-mail.

To this point, and I certainly see nothing changing, absolutely great customer service and assurances that I will get the wheels I want made the way I want them....

Thanks Mike@TF... True Forged Wheels http://****************.com/#/content/start/

Oh i am sure you are a lot more antsy then any of us are.
But, i am also pretty damn sure you have that "It can't happen fast enough" feeling!
It is such a breath of fresh air when vendors are their for you and you know it and feel it from the first time you talk to them! Glad your wheels are in good hands!

I've gotten to the point that waiting is worth it for the finished product to be right...

And amen on the vendors... I've had a couple of them I wont mention on here in any good form, and then there are some that are incredible...

Matt formerly of ECS, and RX... Pete, ERL, George at Rockland Standard Gear... Thomas at Hendrix Motorsports, etc.... but first and foremost, Corey at Henderson Performance Tech.. and the employees of his that have offered and given ideas and effort. An amazing group of people...

I am excited about the new wheels... No Doubt...I need to do some work on the calipers though since they will be more exposed... I need to paint them and get new logo stickers....
