I heard they took the SST to Subway for some type of photo shoot.

Good luck with the demo. That will be interesting to hear how that goes.

Thanks T. I would have pushed a lot more to be done but this demo is a biggie so it has taken precedence. I will be in California though.

Ran some more today. Working great. Whip out your phone on the west coast - command and control a USV/UUV off the east coast. Gotta show this update to GTA...

I am going to be in San Diego and would like to hop up and see the SST, but at this time we have meetings scheduled from sunrise to sunset every day. Then I have to jet back to FLA since one of our employees is getting married Saturday on the beach.

P.S. TCAT - Thanks for the kind words earlier. Can't wait to see your machine come to life with that Turbonetics setup.

That is one busy weekend, ha-ha, but it should be a ton of fun.

Your very welcome. You're car has some amazing mods, both appearance and performance. Amazing choice on everything .

I'll be sure to post in my build thread hen the turbo gets put on so you cab see how the numbers are coming along. You, as well as some other turbo owners will be really helpful with the build with all your turbo knowledge and experience. Have fun next week!

Bruce,

Where in Florida are you? I'm going to be near Ft Lauderdale in October on business. I'd love to meet up and see the beast if we can work it out.

Hey Russ -

About 2 hours north of Lauderdale. What time in October are you coming. Pony Wars are the around the 7th.

On an unrelated note, NOW the scheduled road tuning is for Wednesday late. The shifter is done. The axles were hitting the upper control arm so we are modding that. Then...HOPEFULLY...DONE... Damn, it has been dragging (and not at the track. :()

Oh well. Off to San Diego.

They have to modify the upper rear control arm clearance when the car has all of the weight on the rear wheels.

Hey Pete - originally Spohn and BMR were going to make an aftermarket one (upper control arm) but no longer show anything. Is that something Pedders looked at doing ? Is it feasible ?

Thanks.

A company like Chevrolet does a lot of destructive testing with components like arms. They spend more on validating an arm than any aftermarket company could. That is one of the key reasons we work so hard to work withing the constraints of the OE chassis.

When after market companies do bring full arms out they find ways to limit liability. We do the same thing with 90/10 struts and some other components. GMPP is incredibly cautious. Rumor has it that Spohn will have something out in 90 days or so. My guess is that the fab work you and your TEAM are capable of that a modified upper OE arm may be your best choice.
