The way I move.... probably 2012.. haha.

Depends what plans I have next weekend. I pick it up Friday night, if they are running Saturday I may stay and go..... if i can borrow Deavers tires. haha.

Or If Owen wants to run it before I get into town he could do that.

With my move coming up.. it may not be until I get settled in Michigan... but then I wouldnt have the ARD pit crew to help out (russ.mike.owen.deaver.hose.brad.jason.SKIP.etc)

BTW... Owen was very pleased in how your latest mod came out... Said it came out even better than his since yours was a M6 to start with.

I hate that you're going back to Michigan, but I perfectly understand...

Any chance you can make it to Cabelas tonight... I'll come get you if needed... There is a guy from Michigan in South Austin that is supposed to be out there....

What are you guys doing? Grabbing some hunting and fishing gear in your car(s) and going out in the woods with them. Brandi and Kyles LSX may need knobby tires for that.

Russ - Kyle and Robert need RealTree and Mossy Oak Camaros...

On the flip side us Florida types just got done playing with the kids (and labrador) in the pool it's a beautiful day out today.

lol, no, there is a huge all make car meet at Cabelas every Saturday Night... Just about any make and model you can find or think of. It's a lot of fun and you get to see some really neat cars...

Just drove Kyles' car test drive on new trans, all I can say is Fassssst. The car feels completly different, staying in boost the whole time you on the throttle is awesome. Starting work on meth kit will post some pics later.

I got a chance to drive Kyle's car yesterday...all I can say is wow!

I didn't get it on it really hard, (just can't do that in someone else's car), but Owen took me for a spin and it was insane. This really is the best of both worlds. You get the thrill of shifting (without ever leaving boost), and you don't have to deal with riding the clutch in traffic.

I've been talking to Owen about this for a while, but was going to wait until after the LSX went in. I may have to reverse that order now.

Here are a couple of shifter pics.
