Just thought i'd post since its quiet in here. So far, I've sold my enzo and VDS mr-02, as well as a rolling hopped up mr-01 chassis with a Modena body. With that, I've been looking at what parts to purchase for an MA-010. Whats up with everyone else?

Also, I don't have much planned for tomorrow so I was thinking of heading to the RCP track and test my car since I changed a few things. Anyone else want to go do some tuning?

I'm down for some practice. I'm thinking about taking mine apart and figure out what's the deal with the steering. I can do that tonight if I don't go out. What time you plan on being out there Hank?

I'm not sure, I was thinking around noon sometime, but let me know what time you'd prefer.

That's a good deal, they do a real nice job with the shop. I think everyone should buy one. :p

Good practice session yesterday. I timed Hank for 5 minutes and he turned 58 laps. :eek:

Ha ha I was just joking. We didn't time each other, I just wanted to scare you.

lol, I was thinking to myself I didn't know I did 58 laps! How I come I don't remember? :p

Yea man, my car was doing pretty good, but at the house, I just tried GPM 8s all around and it was awesome! I might have to check out how that feels on the track.

1/1 car: SRT-4(12.9@113 with traction problems )

That's pretty much identical to what my friend's stg.1 SRT-4 runs. His next mod are drag radials. Best in the WRX is a 13.5 @ 102. Hopefully put a big turbo on it early next year and shoot for 11's.

Here is an old pic of my GTI for Patrick. It met a nasty faith with a tree. :(

Heres my run

http://media.putfile.com/Track-run-15

As you can see, I was trying to run some 15 inch wheels with some old school BFG drag radials that I got from ebay. Its pretty apparent they weren't working :D I think my stock tires would have done better!

Speaking of past cars, this is what happens when you have a high school freshman talking on her phone while driving behind you. :(

That sucks Hank. How fast was she going? That looks like a pretty serious impact. :eek:

Nice video! Here is video last year at Silver Dollar. I still have no idea of all the mods on the car since I bought it used. :rolleyes:

I have no traction issues. :) Just lacks with the power.

It actually wasn't a very high speed accident. It probably looks real bad because the accident was with 2 SUVs

Basically, I had to break pretty hard to avoid hitting the guy in front of me. He stopped but you couldn't tell because his break lights weren't working. I stopped and had a little less than half a car length between us. Next thing you know the girl behind me hits the back of my car and pushes me into the car in front of me. Only had the car registered for a month and it was gone :(

Nice run! Sonds real nice too! What did you launch at and do you remember you 60 foot? I'm around 13.5 as well off the bottle. Maybe when the track opens again in march, we should go make a visit. That run was in 2005, I haven't anything since, but if I plan on going this year, I just might have to get some stuff. :D

I usually launch around 5k slipping the clutch. My 60 ft. times were around 1.8.

I'd like to run a t3/t04e 50 trim setup and drop in a new RA gear set. I'd like to go again I think I could run a little bit faster with my current setup.
