he is doing good... moved down south.... to Detrooooit
He is working at Liberty Gears, building transmissions for cars from stock drag cars to NHRA. He is really enjoying it.

he is working on setting up the Cryo machine for Camaro rear end gears... should be cool, 30-40% stronger for a couple hundred bucks. not a bad deal

I had a good time at the Autorama this weekend (largest Houston car show of the year). I didn't feel my car was really ready, but I did manage a place trophy.

Now that we're basically done with the performance mods, I'm going to focus on the interior and a few more things.

You know, I was thinking exactly that. Your car needs a few more things

I couldn't agree more. Definitely one of my top 10 5th gens. Congrats on hitting 9's Russ. I can only imagine what it feels like to have that much acceleration in a street car. What are the interior plans?

Thanks guys.

I'm still working on the whole plan, but I'll be starting with a new dash and audio system.

So clean... and so fast. You've built a great combo Russ! Cant wait to see what your plans are for the Dash and Audio system. You going to go pretty big?

Thanks for the compliments.

I'm hoping to do something interesting with the audio, but I'm not sure yet. I would expect that like every other part of this build it will end up bigger than what I anticipate.

Notes:
Owen, Russ is going to need more power.

Self, Russ is going to need higher rate rear coils.

Russ is going to need more money.

Pete...you're giving away too many secrets! The plan is 4 18s and 24 tweeters.

Definitely don't want to go that big, but we can always up the nitrous shot to compensate.
