I'm sorry, Russ... but this was some most excellent SMACK talk right here!

Two way street... You are one of my favorite peeps on here... And I'm looking for some V-6 rear brakes so I can put a 16 inch wheel on and get some real slicks... Not sure how big I can run yet, but I'll be in touch with some of the tire experts...

You never know when it might be useful...

And the big one...

I spoke with Frank at the Driveshaft Shop... and ordered my nine inch kit.... It'll come with the WaveTrac diff, 3.07 gears, 33 spline stubs, and a one piece 3.5" driveshaft....

I'll finally be able to launch Brandi without worrying about leaving my diff on the track...

Yesterday, I washed Brandi with dawn dishwashing liquid and got all the wax and what not off of her and then clay bar'd the entire car...

Today, I got started on the orange haze and swirl remover... and got most of the car done with that... I still have a few surface scratches to concentrate on as well as the small areas and around the grill opening and on the blade spoiler...

It's going pretty well, but it got too dark to go any further and Debbie invited me out to dinner with her and a couple of friends...

Again, a big shout out to Jason, our local Adams rep for the stuff I'm using and for the instructions and help along the way... I'm getting Brandi ready for our local show Saturday in San Antonio... She is only going to be on display, and not competing for class awards...

I'm judging the car show in one or two of the classes...

On a side note, I got a text from Corey and he has ordered my boost controller, an AMS 1000 and a shift light... So, Monday, when she goes in the hospital, in addition to the diff and trans work... we'll be installing the boost controller, the shift light, and fixing the wastegate issue... Well, precision will fix that part but...

Should'nt be long before I'll be able to launch the best looking and fastest 5th Gen Camaro in the area down the track...

It'll really "pop" once you hit it with the polish! I checked out the diff you're getting. Serious chunk of metal!

lol, I figure about 250 lbs of metal...(and it's probably not that much...) but... it ought to hold up to some serious launches... I'll be thrilled to be able to do the first burnout with both tires since the build...

I've got some focused work areas where I need to try to get rid of some surface scratches... hopefully tomorrow I'll manage to get those out...
