It's not the HP... it's the way I got there...
This Cam is super radical on the street and my crank up at 530AM is deafening. It was already way loud but now...

I'm buying a mini-truck from Jerry tomorrow...

Great Thread

Thats awesome, wow and thanks... I hope I didn't bore you with it... The most, truly the most, amazing thing about this car is the people I have met due to owning and driving it, sharing in events with others, and spending time with quality people...

I wouldn't trade any of it... and it's only going to get better...

I can't wait for the Fest...

I had to miss it last year due to a change in my work schedule, but after what I've done to get the car ready for this one, well, lets just say I'll be there, car or no....Several people already offered to allow me to ride with them if my car wasn't ready... I hope it doesn't come to that, but if it did, I'ld still go and share some incredible time with others...

I'll see you in less than three weeks...

I sent a request for a general feel of Brandi this early in the drive and break in period...

This is Corey's answer... I'm stoked...

The clutch "feels" great at the pedal. The engagement is very livable, not too chattery, easy to drive. But you can tell it's a not joke setup. The motor feels SOLID, and the turbo's sound BIG. No sissy boy high pitched whine when they start to turn. These things should lay out the boost. I of course have not put it into boost yet, but you can make them spin a little and not get into trouble. :-) The rear suspension is TIGHT. A little bouncier than before perhaps, and you hear 100% of the noise the differential makes. Other than that it's a ***** cat.

He is going to try some different differential lubricant to quieten it down... But I am way excited and I wish I was on the way home already...

Quit looking at the clock

If you did drop springs, might need to time the bushings, some have complained of a 'bouncy' feel after dropping it.

Yep. Well, with my drop springs, it's usually pretty tight and will stick to the ground. But every once in a while, I'll hit a bump and that back end bounces up and down a few times. I REALLY only noticed it once. The ride is a lot tighter with those drop springs, though.

Busty Brandi

With those two big turbos and the mellow sound coming out the back I think you are going to be pleasantly shocked Robert when you throw the go go juice at Brandi. She is gonna light up like a Christmas tree. I bet the fuel economy won't be too bad either...if you can keep your foot out of it. But...with that thing spooling up it is going to be tempting at every light. Have a safe trip home...your baby awaits. BTW... great teaser video. Cant wait to see her on the dyno.

There really isn't much else to look at out here... I say that and then remember the sun rise we had this morning... Wow...

Care to explain to me the "timing" of the bushings. I've never heard of it...

My ride was substantially tighter after installing the Eibachs...

My old fire truck I drove for sooo many years lit up like a christmas tree, lights and all, just didn't do anything very quickly... It's already rumored that when I make my Friday night sojurn to San Antonio, they will be able to hear me coming through San Marcos, which is 35 to 70 miles from the meet site depending on where we are meeting on a particular night...and if I am traveling with Kyle, (700+ HP Procharged LSx)OMG, they will be able to hear us in Dallas...since that is behind us and we are pointing the tail pipes that way...

Wow, Brandi isn't in the same league with The Speedster Beast, but I sure am flattered to be mentioned in the same sentence...
