  1. Random thought thread

    Yeah, about half of mine load straight off the phone. So unless I go to the trouble of downloading and modifying in paint, they just don’t get posted.
  2. Smokers

    I bought a weber smokey mountain a couple weeks ago. I’ve cooked wings, jalapeño poppers, brisket and a small pork butt so far. All were pretty good with just charcoal and no smoke wood. There’s lots of room for me to improve, but I’m happier with the outcome vs my last foray into bbq.

    Open it in MS paint. I generally have to resize my iphone pics to 30% for them to upload here.

    The weather would be great for my car, but with all the rain, the track will be extra crappy. I’m staying home
  5. Tax and/or insurance question

    You can put it in your checking account until you pay the other healthcare bills. Just keep records of what money you’re spending on health care this year in case you get audited.
  6. LS misfire only at idle

    A lot of my misfire stuff is dumbed down in the tune because of the large cam. It could have them and never set a code.

    I red lit and we both spun. He saw the red light and just let out.
  8. LS misfire only at idle

    Seems possible. If a late model GM won't idle at the set rpm, instead of opening or closing the throttle body, it will add or remove timing. When I had the 90mm tb on my V without the proper values in the tune, it would feel like it had a miss at low rpm.
  9. Union Hill 2018 thread

    I red lit the first round of the street car thing. There was a good turnout, but still a lot of cars that didn't show. You could probably have made it a couple rounds on bye runs if you wanted. I decided to run trophy too. I made it past the first round and red lit again. I've got to get a handle on that. I'm anticipating that last yellow light and leaving too early.

    I'll be there. Tomorrow night is a heads up race for the fastest "615" street car at the Hill. There's a street class and outlaw class. You are actually #30 on the street list still with your mustang and an alternate if Michael Quinn doesn't show. Might as well run the wagon if the spot opens up. @shaft is on there too. Leonard (kwikrnu) is on there at number 21. He might show if he's not detained downtown or out brandishing firearms at Brentwood city hall. A lot of these cars won't show, so any alternates have a good chance of running. They didn't do a good job of getting the word out about this and most people don't even know they are on this "list".

    Hope the rain holds out tonight so I can see this thing, but it's not looking good. However it won't be the first time the weathermen are wrong. I think this thing would be awesome with a coyote/6 speed swap and some suspension. Something like an NMRA coyote stock car.
  13. What kind of phone do car guys use?

    Iphone here. I tried a samsung something a few years ago and didn't like it.

    Gary Steele (blue buick convertible) sold a ws6 formula with t-tops recently with 99k miles for $9500. It was super clean and mostly stock. His was a 6 speed car. The ws6 only adds the hood to a formula.

    Done that. https://butlerperformance.com/g-21248-2000-ram-air-ta-with-traditional-pontiac-power.html It's a turd. You can't fit any worthwhile intake or induction without a big cowl hood and chopping up the cowl. And that whole rear distributor problem.
