    a little rich and the plugs are too hotalso working on the alignment - the C5/C6 front suspension uses the typical GM cam bolts... and they can move... need to find a solution to this (and the stupid potato camera's inability to hold a steady shot)

    Electric emergency brake system

    I know that having a good e-brake (after clipping in the Camaro subframe) is in top 3 things I really like about the conversion...... as for the e-version. I still know that girls like a good J-turn and pressing a button does not have the same effect.

    that's probably the biggest thing I got from SEMA. Do it right, while I was spending an extra year building it - it wasn't so great, but I know the response I'm getting now wouldn't have happened had I not....

    with where the crane is, that'd be a tough thing to do. With that said, the trolley needs a brake, the heavier the load, the more the trolley wants to set a land speed record to get to the end of the line.... if you were putting a motor in, it'd be more trouble then its worth to use it...

    the garage is 1/3 bigger and has quite a bit more volume due to the roof. Soon, AC in the shop..... my wife said I'll never leave, it's likely.

    lol, 77 was available and close enough to 76. Not that year makes much of a difference.... very little of the original car there.Ride-alongs. I think only the cruise - other drivers can ride along, but the key is the car must have the same safety gear for both. Mine doesn't - 5 point is...

    to be honest, I didn't look. I had this problem with my FJ40 - mirror was too low and would move under hard wheeling.... so I bought a UTV mirror... works great and stays put... why, might you ask do I need to? yes, that's light under the rear tire...

    Wouldn't most magazines have issues?From the guys who are winning - Yokohama, NanKings, and Falken are the top choices... That said, the last two (and maybe Yoks) don't have sizes that fit my car (usually it's the rear size that's the problem - 325)sorry, #dadjoke.

    what a trip the filming is. I may end up nowhere on it (kind of doubtful because I had cameras on my car pretty much the entire time) - but I seriously think one of the biggest boosts I got was from that whole thing.... I know all you experienced racers don't think anything of it - but to me...

    It's supposed to be on Optima's channel (wherever that is) and on Roku... the last time I looked at the Optima, their showing was later then the MavTV showing (which does make sense)

    so they filmed my car doing the DSE portion of the event (and doing AutoX and doing the drive portion).... rumor has it that I will be on MavTV next Friday night in their coverage of this event.I need new tires, and more hp... but I'm having a blast and what I'm learning is invaluable.
