I never really like going to the yard much, but when you need parts, it was now a must. And it seems i've been on a binge for a few weekends. So this past weekend, I stopped by the Pick a Part on Katella ave. in the city of Stanton.
As I continue my quest to finish the 7.5in project. I came across a way to modify the roll center. Usually there's the weld on pieces from manufacturers like Cusco. If you race on a competitive basis, usually the sanctioning body rules disallow any changes to the suspension points of the vehicle. But what if we skirt under the radar.
I've been up to the Bay area few times, but this is the first time I decided to stop and smell the salty fresh air. My first time in the bay was when I was in a ROTC shooting competition at the Presidio, that's so long ago. Unfortunately, we were restricted on base and couldn't get out to explore. Other recent times I've been here, was for either participating track days or watching the races. Once it was over I immediately headed home. Since I was here for a friend's wedding, I made it a point to take in the sites.
Your friend who's a Corolla guy, is getting married. What do you give the newlyweds? TRD shifter, Japanese bumpers, or maybe some new Volk TE37Vs, the new wife may not approve. Since they're Chinese and you're cheap, what's more correct than 86.00 dollars in cash. Too bad I couldn't find 1985 circulation currency. Congratulations to Andrew (86Fever) and his new wife Cynthia on their marriage.
Even though the Lexus SC was available with a V8 engine. Someone decided it wasn't enough and decided to drop a Ford 5.0 power plant. Is this another shop vying for Formula D glory? Obviously it failed since it's now at the yard.
After some wholesome break in time at the dyno. It was time really test Barney and it's cleaner emitting tune. Signed up the the Suislide Girls drift event at the balcony at Willow Springs Raceway. It's cheap, low number entries and there's girls. But they didn't have any tattoos as far i'm aware of, but they do like to drift.
