Default Re: Road Trip

Just getting up. Heading back to the shop. Yesterday they got the car back together, did load testing, and when I left they were doing a race alignment. I wanted to see but we didn't have a ride back to the hotel and needed to get some rest anyway. I saw a lot yesterday, enough to keep me thinking into the night.

I'm not sure what to expect today. Over a cup of fruit chuck said its faster than stock and handles better than stock. Not really a surprise but the way he said it was interesting. He said it definitely pulls harder than his supra, at least through 100. That is not something one says over a cup of fruit. Vodka sure. Heineken maybe. But a cup of fruit..?

Gtrs dont normally feel very fast, so that comment left me with something to think about...

Have fun learn alot and keep your third eye aware of what's going on around you. If you stand out people might get distracted. Cops will be gunning for you. Pace yourself and be alert as much as possible. Monitor everything under the hood and keep ears open for sounds. Good luck next you'll be running the gumball !!!!

made this vid to show throttle response. the top right gauge in the MFD is showing accel pedal position. big gauge shows boost. 0 psi is top/center and it goes up to 20 psi. you can see before i floor it completely its giving full boost.



am taking requests for future vids

What's with the hazard light by any chance. Or is that just your typical CEL there.
