Ended up getting my alignment done last week.

Loaded up and ready to go


Results


They told me that I needed to replace my left inner tie rod and also my right outer since they have some slight play in them. There is a test and tune this saturday and then next weekend is Honda Fest. I will replace both of those after the events which will give me time to schedule for another alignment right after.

Other than that not a whole lot going on with the car. Hoping to get an ATV in the next few weeks so that has been where my money has been going for now. Once I get that then ill start saving for more parts.

No, I'm afraid if something breaks I won't have enough time to get it fixed on time for the Honda Fest next Sunday. Plus, I don't have a trailer. Its a 6 hour round trip. The towing bill to bring the car home if it breaks would be huge.


Years ago I drove there with a bunch of friends. Made 13 passes and drove home. Good old times. Not taking that risk again.


You coming to Honda Fest?

Of course I am lol. Im planning on (as long as the weather is alright) making the test and tune this saturday. I just want to make a couple passes then head out to make sure the car is all good for honda fest since I made quite a bit of changes since last year. New parts I can think of is swapping over to Blox drag suspension, removed sway bars, replaced bushings, switched to skinnies on the rear, added progressive shift light....maybe some more stuff.

Been a bit since I posted on here. Picked up a new toy last week.

2005 Yamaha YFZ450




Then today was HondaFest! First time running the car with skinnies and the Blox Drag suspension. The car felt very stable off the line and hooked. With some more time with the setup I am hoping to get lower into the 11s.

Im almost positive that I posted these updates but they seem to have disappeared.

Old updates
Got around to replacing my windshield strip today. Hopefully the extra 2 inches will help with the sun setting in the evening at the track. Its pretty brutal and sets directly in line with the drag strip.

Before - Flat black


The goods


After - Gloss black


Alignment time

Whats new Justin? How's the car running? Haven't heard any updates in awhile...
The car is still running great! I havent done anything to it lately except for signing up for a permanent number at the track at my last test and tune.



My summer is pretty booked so there wont be too many new things happening with the car. I just got back from California a couple days ago where I went to Disney Land, Six Flags Magic Mountain, and Universal Studios so funds are limited for a while.

Anything new with your car?

Well not a lot has changed on the car. Just getting it ready for IFO in a couple weeks. My Duralast battery did finally die after 4-5 years of sitting in the car. Just ordered a SHURiKEN SK-BT20 battery to replace it.

The specs on it looked decent and for only $65 I cant complain.

Battery is set to arrive tomorrow. IFO is 1 week away.

-----------------------------------------

But I will be parting out the car in a couple weeks. I have had this car for just about 5 1/2 years. I have alot of time and money invested in it. Ever since turning it into a track only car it made me really miss having something nice to take out on the street.

I have learned a lot about working on cars just from this one car. This car was actually the first turbo car I have ever been in. Pretty crazy that someone would decide on building a turbo http://rover.ebay.com/rover/13/0/19/DealFrame/DealFrame.cmp?bm=954&BEFID=96477&acode=935&code=935&aon=&crawler_id=455941&dealId=PaIuUyQsQ77OZnwptsTXJw%3D%3D&searchID=&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.partsgeek.com%2Fm51w8gy-dodge-ram-3500-turbocharger-intercooler-hose-kit.html%3Futm_source%3Dshoppingcom%26utm_medium%3Dpf%26utm_content%3Ddc%26utm_campaign%3DPartsGeek%2BShoppingCom%26fp%3Dpp%26utm_term%3DDodge%2BTurbocharger%2BIntercooler%2BHose%2BKit&DealName=2005-2009%20Dodge%20Ram%203500%20Turbo%20to%20Pipe%20%28Hot%20Side%29%20Turbocharger%20Intercooler%20Hose%20Kit%20-%20Gates%2026224&MerchantID=455941&HasLink=yes&category=0&AR=-1&NG=1&GR=1&ND=1&PN=1&RR=-1&ST=&MN=msnFeed&FPT=SDCF&NDS=1&NMS=1&NDP=1&MRS=&PD=0&brnId=2455&lnkId=8070676&Issdt=170819051306&IsFtr=0&IsSmart=0&dlprc=63.33&SKU=18254-05398879setup before even experiencing what turbo http://rover.ebay.com/rover/13/0/19/DealFrame/DealFrame.cmp?bm=954&BEFID=96477&acode=935&code=935&aon=&crawler_id=455941&dealId=PaIuUyQsQ77OZnwptsTXJw%3D%3D&searchID=&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.partsgeek.com%2Fm51w8gy-dodge-ram-3500-turbocharger-intercooler-hose-kit.html%3Futm_source%3Dshoppingcom%26utm_medium%3Dpf%26utm_content%3Ddc%26utm_campaign%3DPartsGeek%2BShoppingCom%26fp%3Dpp%26utm_term%3DDodge%2BTurbocharger%2BIntercooler%2BHose%2BKit&DealName=2005-2009%20Dodge%20Ram%203500%20Turbo%20to%20Pipe%20%28Hot%20Side%29%20Turbocharger%20Intercooler%20Hose%20Kit%20-%20Gates%2026224&MerchantID=455941&HasLink=yes&category=0&AR=-1&NG=1&GR=1&ND=1&PN=1&RR=-1&ST=&MN=msnFeed&FPT=SDCF&NDS=1&NMS=1&NDP=1&MRS=&PD=0&brnId=2455&lnkId=8070676&Issdt=170819051306&IsFtr=0&IsSmart=0&dlprc=63.33&SKU=18254-05398879is lol. This is also the first car that I have ever done a motor swap in by myself. I can now do that in my sleep. I love this car and will more than likely regret it but I am ready for something else. I plan on getting another project Honda someday but right now I just want something more streetable.

First day I bought it
