Ah, you guys are ruthless... and Jax isn't very far away either.
But that's OK. Keeps us on our toes!

The differential parts are ordered and were sent out today to be put together. Then (hopefully) the center and axles will be done and they will be sent further out west so that the upper control arm gets modded. And then those pesky turbo hard lines should also be done. THEN... it can hit the dyno. The dyno will be getting rusty if we don't get it on there soon...

Everyone seems to be having babies right now (no, not HERE) so things have been a little slow on the SST.

Contrary to popular belief, it will be nice to have it back here. Just been really busy so haven't had a lot of time to keep on top of it. Speaking of which I gotta crash. Very early morning tomorrow.

Usually I feel sorry for cars on a dyno, seeing all those rev's on that poor motor... On Nelson's stuff I can't help but feel sorry for they dyno having to keep up

I'll stay away from the maki... err... having babies comment.... for now

So does a burnout with square wheels constitute "wheel hop" ?

Ouch !!

Hey, we're all glad your wheels now go round and round. I am sure your car rides a whole lot better than before.

Oh ya. No more wheel hop.

You know when you're getting wheel hop from the FRONT wheels on your SS, there's a problem. hahahahaah

Alright - I can say it now - YOU SUCK !!!
Not only was it HIS first ride in a new Camaro, but you gave him a ride BEFORE me.

Next time I will feed both you and him a box of Ex Lax before you take your ride... Talk about skid marks.
