Unexpected failures

IMG_20160806_180320_146

When it comes to some parts, there’s some things that you know will fail and others the you never think of ever failing.  This happens to be the latter.  But things do happen at the most inopportune time.  Unfortunately, it ruined my day and a few others.  Black Ice humbly apologizes.  Back to the cave to assess damages and come back another time.

8/6 Day: Enter the Levi aka Black Ice

IMG_20160731_120537_044

This is Levi (no attack on titan reference), short for Leviathan aka Black Ice.  It’s been a while, but I'm finally getting back into driver’s seat.  Didn’t think I’d really build another corolla after the demise of Barney.  Wasn’t even sure I wanted to put another one together, since I know how much work is involved, yeah I'm getting lazier as the years go by.   I guess it’s my destiny, but I really had to save it from the clutches of the fan boys who already pillaged the chassis and left it a slow dying death.  After many days of toiling in the summer heat getting Levi together it’s finally ready for it’s maiden track day.  Let’s hope it doesn’t fall apart on me.  Especially on 8/6 day.

Losing the original clips sucks and are hard to come by now a days.  Unfortunately. didn’t have one in the back.  So made do with some safety wire.  Though not original, it does the job.

Facing decision

Time to do something different for a change.  Or maybe I should stick with a winning package, because Takumi.
