  1. LS3 advice.

    Also looking at an OMP suede wheel too. Kinda silly to have two but figure if the car keeps moving in a direction I did not originally intend might as well have a good race wheel. OMP is not as fun to say.
  2. LS3 advice.

    Momo. Because it’s fun to say Momo
  3. 2010 Camaro SS

    I have the drones too. Car came with BB bullets.. Sounds amazing wide open and love the crack snap pop when decelerating, but DAMNNNNNNN, the drone is terrible. Most C6 guys go back the stock NPP exhaust. I am going to stick with this because I want to see what it sound like with headers and a cam.
  4. LS3 advice.

    Went to the track again wed night. This time to an old racetrack, Thompson Raceway that has been around for a long time. They are known for a national gasser race. Anyway, previous best was a 3.26 at 108.0. Last night I went 13.19 at 111.11. DA was about 2600 so not all bad considering. Still need tires, yep need tires. Sixty foots were 2.3.. and car was wheel hopping after hitting second gear. I had forgotten how much fun this is....
  5. I was in Nashville two weeks ago to take my daughter back to UTK. What I noticed is small, dinky little townhomes start at 200+ in Antiochhoodville. Traffic is now possibly the worst I have ever experienced. I loved living their in the early 90's when it was growing but not GROWING. The $/value ratio is getting way lopsided in my opinion. My kids mom and stepdad are building a big sweet home out past Las Casas. Out there is nice and it seems many others are figuring that out. That's the only way I would ever consider that area again. Now what has happened up here in the rust belt is kinda crazy as well. Trump is smart and understands economics which has had a direct effect on our industrial base. Houses are going up well over 10-15% for existing homes and there is very little inventory. Real estate agents are telling people that they better have a place to go if they list their house because depending on the market segment most sell with in days. I was planning on building but it seems Dad found someone who made an offer we couldn't refuse on the lots I was going to build on. Besides, with garage I was looking at roughly $180 per sqft. It was a way cool garage though. There have been more new construction in the last year than in the last 10 years in Trumbull County. Instead of building I am in the market for an existing home and for 250-350k you can buy a BIG sumbich (about 1000-1500sqft bigger than what I planned to build) and that is usually at 75-95 per sqft, That is for a nice updated well built house. Yes, NE Ohio is not glamorous but I can live well, breath easy and have stuff. What's crazy is if you look at the cost of living calculators its says it would add an extra 13% to the cost of living, yet comparable salary is -2.2% for like position for me to live/work in Nashville. Not to mention every time I am driving in Nashville I get overwhelmed by the desire to choke the **** out of someone who desperately needs it.

  8. Crown Vic Roll Bar Build

    What a cool car. BTW, the back seats are not very roomy when they have the bar n them esp for us bigger guys......so I've been told.
  9. So my son knocked up his girlfriend. Pretty sure he knew what would cause this. Happy and irritated at the same time. Ahhhhhh, life.....
  10. LS3 advice.

    So how would this work in conjunction with a tune? Is table a left alone? Do you tune to work with the vitesse? BTW, anyone know of a good LS tuner in my area, NE Ohio Western PA? Long shot but thought I would ask.
  11. Justice Kennedy Retires

    I have to be very honest. I have thoroughly enjoyed this presidency and the entertainment it has provided. The by products of a good economy, conservation restoration of greatness is the icing on the cake. Now the opportunity to solidify constitutional conservatism on the scotus?!!! Btw anybody ever hear from that bearded subie guy from the old board? Nick? I miss him, would love to catch up.
  12. LS3 advice.

    Yep they have them for the SS. My understanding is that they can be used in combination with a tune. Has 9 settings and response gets more immediate with each. At the highest it is instant and takes very little gas to spin the tires and is a bitrosy. What little have played with in the time I have had it it seems setting 6 is good daily fun. .
  13. LS3 advice.

    Added a Vitesse throttle throttle controller. Wow, that is some serious responsiveness! Makes stock seem super laggy.
