GTO

Our old VP retired, and is selling off some stuff. Here's his GTO. If you know anyone actually looking for one of these, buy this one. It's literally a brand new car, and doesn't get driven hard. I've driven it, and it's awesome with only 14k miles. https://akroncanton.craigslist.org/cto/d/akron-200...

Re: Chevelle Upgrades, 2019

3.73's put you about 2400 at 70mph, and through the traps at 113 it's 5800. Might as well upgrade a little. That's why you have OD, muh man! Even 3.90's...

Re: Chevelle Upgrades, 2019

You could use an engine hoist if you didn't want to wait for anybody. You sticking with the same gears?

Re: TRP 2019

I'm out. Not for any particular reason... just not feeling it today. Don't want to change my tires on the truck, and I don't feel like racing the Golf. I'll probably just cut the grass and work in the basement.

Re: 2003 S-10

Finally got to drive on the freeway with my corrected speedo. Turns out it's exactly what I thought it would be at 70mph: 2700rpm. In a motor that goes almost to 7000, that's a good cruising number. Pretty sure my mileage has gotten worse though (says Captain Obvious).

Re: One Man Car Show

Gotta agree with the No Black Wheels policy. So bad on all counts.

You win the car show award!

Re: 2003 S-10

Last night I swung by Hutter Performance to see Trevor to correct my speedometer after the gear change. After a few minutes, we were good to go. So the only thing I really have left to do is get the A/C recharged and run mid 11s.

No kidding, I wonder if he would ever sell the Fringe? It's so badass, and such a legend.

Re: One Man Car Show

I've seen this guy on the freeway at least five times this year driving this in regular morning rushour traffic. He drives normally about 80 miles an hour, but never swerving, cutting people off, or acting a-fool. The car looks perfect and according to his plate, is a FINE 89. It's a Carrera 4. I ne...

Re: Chip off the old block

All-new is what keeps it exciting. And now you're searching for tracks that prep the WHOLE way down. No wheelie bar in the future? I know when a lot of these types of cars launch with a bar on the back, they run the tires real soft (maybe not the same tire you're running) and they're basically touch...

Re: Great Lakes google map roadie

I'm sure you'd see a lot of cool country, especially as you get north in Michigan and Canada. I've never used the maps that way, it's kinda neat. But unfortunately when your wife doesn't like driving on the freeway, this limits your ability to take a road trip. Maybe once I get my Viper...

Re: Chip off the old block

Success! It went there and came home in one piece. Now you have to learn how to drive and tune it again. Any ideas, besides more seat time, that will help you get to make a full power pass? I saw the video on FB, and it looks and sounds awesome!

Re: TRP 2019

The only bad thing (besides falling asleep in the finals) was how quickly they ran through the rounds. We didn't really have much time to dissect what was happening between rounds. It was almost like hot lapping. I'll admit I was paying more attention to Dave driving away than I was the Christmas tr...

Re: 2003 S-10

I was able to pick up the rearend on Saturday about 10am. $385 later and I have 4.10 gears. Another 3.5hrs and it was up and running. The break in period is a little tedious, but by this afternoon I should be able to get to putting some power down. The good thing is that all went smoothly and there'...
