  1. Random thought thread

    I’d definitely choose the auto. Why? It’s faster. That’s what makes it more fun for me. Back when the reverse was true, I’d chosen a manual. Just look at video of some of the new cars with auto’s street and drag racing. Most of the time when the MANual guy clutches to shift, they lose ground to the auto. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The Brembo's on my SS have probably saved my life at least 3 times. Stock rotors and pads were amazing. I lost some braking going to Hawk HPS pads with Baer drilled and slotted rotors.

    A Telsa model 3 Performance can do that. It is as fast in the 1/4 as my SS was with H/C/I/E85, etc., before the supercharger. Best ET I seen for the model 3 performance was 11.7 in the 1/4 from Motortrend. I think after the update it runs 11.4 in the 1/4 now. A Model S Performance is in the 10's.

    Manuals are jealous of the instant no-lag shifting of the new auto's along with converter tq multiplication. You can't shift as fast as the new auto's. Just like pro-stock drag racer Lutz showed, he could not shift the Camaro SS manual to a faster ET than a female magazine editor in an auto SS. Technology makes things obsolete. Who'd have thought?

    Well this is a different approach to stall... https://www.dragzine.com/features/sema-coverage/sema-2019-hughes-performance-new-torque-converter-dump-valve-kit/

    No, that's the anti-theft device.

    I have been eyeing these vehicles for a while now. It seems they have found the right recipe to get my attention. Good range and crazy fast with performance package. You can get in a Model 3 Performance for around $50k and that's as fast as my H/C/I/Exh + E85 Camaro SS (11.7 1/4). Any of you willing to step over to electric performance vehicles, or still in love with piston engine petrol hotrods? I think for the right price, I'd step over. Right now, the 10sec Model S Performance is out of my price range, but exactly what I'd want. Wonder how reliable they are and if they're worth buying used.....?

    It isn't an aluminum block?
  9. Holy cow, Mike, 9.8 @140 is crazy fast at your weight! Congrats!

    Been installing remote start on the Tundra. 12 Volt Solutions kit is nice. Plug and play. Directions were not great, but got it on and it works. I also got the cellular add on so it can be started from any distance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Congrats! Having a new hotrod is awesome! I'll have to meet-up with you and see it one day soon. Maybe a dyno day just to record stock RWHP? Again, super nice!

    Well, today is a really hard and sad day for me. My cat, about 18 years old has survived hypothyroid and even had a fast growth cancer removed that bought us a good bit more time with her. But unfortunately, her liver is going now. I’ve done all I can do, but she has stopped eating and drinking. She is almost too weak to move now. So I had to make the horrible decision of letting her suffer and die naturally or have her put down to end the pain. I didn’t think I could ever do it, but after caring for her this past week and seeing her sick, I scheduled to have her put down today. She is family to me, so this hurt my heart pretty bad. I can’t tell you all how much I’m going to miss this cat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
