*** Official SM smack talk thread ***

I figured I'd start this one off.

I can't guarantee that my car will be up and running in time again this season, but I can guarantee that when it does run, you are all screwed!  :D

It runs.  That is a twinscrew charger (Lysholm).  It is huge.

Let me know if you ever need a hand with labor.
here is the difference:

I thought it looked bigger.  But then I thought it might be an optical illusion, because of the size of your tiny engine ;)

looks like that, it takes some but makes so much more. Only daily driving gets affected; gas mileage wise...

 for autox its an animal... no delay and power on any rpm.  before I was suffering from low boost at low rpm and a sudden power kick when the Vtech would change cams... it hated that cause it made a sudden change that cause tires to loose traction. its really linear now.  The previous lack of torque on low rpm turn arounds issue is gone and resolved.

the issue now is... can I drive?

Lets see. I always feel like bothering people with my driving issues... there seems to be so much going on once we get going and people get pulled on all directions.  thanks for the idea.

Jose - I'm always available if you think I can help you out.  I know it seems like we're all busy, but if you can wait an extra minute or two before your run, we are always happy to help out.

This will be my 9th season and I still have no idea what I am doing :)  Just keep learning little tips and tricks from the people that know, and you'll keep getting better.
