  1. Honda CBR1000RR

    If they don't pull any tricks, I'll be picking up a new Honda CBR1000RR today. Got it on the cheap. Leftover bike new in crate and MSRP for nearly $17k but I got it for $11,999.00 so with TN tax title and license, it was $13,006.93 OTD. It looks like this one... I hate the economy has sucked, but I've found some awesome deals lately. $16k off the F150, $5k off this bike.... Now is the time to buy if you can!
  2. Honda CBR1000RR

    Picked up the Bike from the Honda shop in Cool Springs. I rode it home and no issues at all.. They did a good job. Thought about selling it while it was being fixed, but after the ride I think I’ll just keep it.
  3. LS3 advice.

    Ouch! You think they’ll make good on the screw up, or?

    Put the lift to work today. Doing brakes on the daily beater yoda. Brembo pads with Baer rotors. I couldn’t find any Hawk pads like I had on it before. That combo was a lot better at stopping than the Toyota OE brakes. I hope these pads do just as good.

  6. Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving, all! Having the toddler running around made it one of the best! Just wish my Dad could have met my daughter before he got dementia and passed away. But his 80 year old sister and her husband made it up to my house. My Mom, sister, and my mother-in-law also were there, so it was still a great thanksgiving!
  7. Renewing my 08' Silverado

    That’s a nice looking truck! You did a god job! So when is it getting a TT kit?
  8. So what are your ET goals this year for the 1/8 and 1/4? Last year, my best 1/8 was 7.6 at 93 mph and 1/4 ET was 11.7 at 118 mph If we go by my last dyno n/a then it was with 442 rwhp. I'm going to shoot for mid 10's this season with DR's. If I do better than that, it'll be a bonus. Current dyno's are 723 rwhp pump and 760 rwhp E85. Weight with full tank is probably closer to 4200lbs with the blower and external trans cooler / larger trans I've added.

  11. Kamala is el Presidente!

    Biden has dementia. He has the look in his face and all. I know it all too well because my Dad had it. They're probably pumping him up with vitamin shots and all to keep him going. They were doing the same to Hillary Clinton. She had issues where she was just collapsing and her mind would clock out in ticks.

    Neighbor across the street already got their Christmas lights up. Looks nice IMHO. Took with iPhone Pro Max 13 1TB hand held at night and I’m shaky. Technology on these new phones is nice as well.

    That's a good looking truck.
  15. Random thought thread

    Watching the Jay Leno Mach1 test drive and I got to say that car is sexy. I love the stance and all. But… At first I liked the exhaust sound, but as time went on it got a bit annoying. Does it have dual mode, or are you stuck with that sound?

  19. 2010 Camaro SS

    The heat shield is removed and the trans mount has spacers, so it's good now.
  20. 2010 Camaro SS

    Well, time to fix a few issues and do a couple mods. First, I'm replacing that POS VARARAM turbulent heat sucker. From all my reading, it looks like Cold Air Inductions makes about the best power if I use the JRE scoop. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Smo75RWYXjzUfsZeyoilhCG0jPCzI6PBzmfOpGA_Ae4/edit#gid=0
  21. 2021 Bronco Sport

    Very nice! I know zero about these... Which motor is in this one and how much mpg's?
  22. Beech Bend Raceway Nov 6th, Who's Going?

    I didn’t go. Wife vetoed that since I wasted last weekend with the car and trying to run at Beech Bend.
  23. So who's going to try to make it to Beech Bend on Nov. 6th?
