Your giving me too much credit, I was thinking 1/8 mile . We'll see what it'll do sometime soon. I'm gonna dial it in off the spray then I'll bring a change of underwear and hit the juice.

I saw those actually. I was thinking of making moves on perhaps those and those Forgeline wheels Erik from Torq has for sale. Go down to a 20" for daily driving get a better tire on it.

150! Thats pretty generous I don't think my car has the power to trap that speed. I'm gonna loose a few rwhp through the 9". Matt went 136mph with his setup and I'll probably be making give or take 80-100 more rwhp. If I can drop 130+ maybe a 140 i'd be impressed with myself lol.

At 900 rwhp you'll be high 140's with everything going right. I can hit 140 at 732 rwhp.

you can try asking for "unsafe driving" if you haven't already used them up.

It'll be cost of ticket plus $250 plus court costs but no points.

Or you can pray for lesser with the plea bargain which they will most likely drop it down to careless driving which is like a $77 fee but 2 points

I haven't used any of them ever, this is probably the first points related ticket i've gotten in give or take 6 years. I mean there is not other ticket associated with it like speeding or anything. I'm hoping they drop it down even to careless then i'll just take a online defensive driving course and wipe the points out.

Been doing good man, little things here and there trying to get the car ready to do a bit of racing this year. Sadly I've been hitting roadblocks on each part so its going slow.

Been following your thread and for sale thread man hoping to catch an update. How is everything going with the new career?

So I got the gforce kit installed today, rode nice but I'm having some issues. The diff is leaking fluid from somewhere I only noticed it when I got home its all underneath the car. Going to get the diff down and re rtv everything when I get the chance. Other than that it felt super positive going home, the posi unit is amazing just feels rock solid like its laughing at the power my car is making.

It does, but its leaking slowly continuously. I put some pieces of paper underneath it that were clean last night. Checked it this morning and there were drops of oil on the paper. I doubt it would leak like that from the vent.

Car is getting cozy in the garage, I also have Matt looking into the driveshaft for me as well. Potentially issues there as well.

I can't wait to hear some stories about you racing at the track . This car is a damn monster. I'm sorry to hear about the roadblocks, but hopefully they'll be sorted out soon, and you'll be crushing some competition in no time .

Everything is going good with the new change, and I've been studying as much as I can. I can't delve deep into everything until the car sells. I can't have any payments on anything for this change, so the more money I free up the better. I would love to keep it though .
