Well, communicating with John at TrackSpec Motorsports. I'll have my cage under construction by tomorrow... I'm buying the six point with the add on pieces for making it an 8 point cage for that eventuality.

When it arrives and after I install it, I'll drive over to Simpson Safety Products in New Braunfels and get custom fitted for a harness. Since they have all the pieces there, it's a matter of getting measured and then they put the pieces together and walaahhh, I drive off with it ten minutes after they finish measuring me. I'm getting it in platinum to match my seat leather...

It'll be a six point harness with the rotary cam lock and dual anti-submarine straps. I'll then have to take the seat cover off the drivers seat and have it altered to allow for the pass through of the lower harness pieces...

I'll probably purchase a second harness for occasional passengers in mile runs... I know one person that wants to ride with me if I make 200 once... With the tricks Corey is talking about, that shouldn't be an issue...

Brandi is a blast to drive...

Have you talked to the suspension guys about alignment specs? Don't want no squirrely car at those speeds! Matter of fact, I think Pete Basica is your neighbor now

Has anyone hit 200+ in a 5th gen yet?

Cage is paid for and headed to coating. The six point bar is ready, they will have to build up the 8 point cage extension, but that won't take long. it all get coated, covered and shipped....
I'll install the bar for a while until I get to running fast enough to need the cage...

I bought the 11th one in the group buy, so if one more person jumps in, we all get the 15 percent discount...

If you think you might want one. Now is a good time to jump in...

add a little boost, 150 shot, some race fuel... and see what we can do with the timing... this will be for the runs at the mile and for drag racing after the nine inch.... I'm hoping to see 1200 - 1300 HP...

Two days at the Beach

My Wife Debbie and I just got back from Corpus Christi...

She needed a couple days away from the house and work, so we got away...

We spent a couple hours on the beach Tuesday afternoon, and then it pretty much rained all day on Wednesday... No complaints from us, as we most assuredly need the rain in Central and South Texas....

This morning, on the way out of town, I took Brandi out to play on the sand... No tire spinning or much more than idling around, I just wanted to take a couple of pictures... Brandi doesn't need sand in her skirt...

Thanks, yes my builder has earned and I give him part ownership of this car... He is amazing... no advertising, no beating the forums, just quiet quality work.... I do the gabbing and he does the building...
