Our day in pictures

leave a comment »

The wife and I took the Ducatis out today to Mulholland Drive for the day. We saw a lot of action and got in some great times on our 848s. One of the bikes in our make shift group caught fire! It put our little group into a stop for a second. The guy survived and he managed to walk away and take a cab home. Cops didn’t ticket him or anything, just let him go with hurt pride.

Then this car appeared, it was nice and cherry. There is some history to it, I heard it goes for crazy cheap too.

After one of the Lotus guys got pulled over, one of the guys in the bike group realized we were by the MASH set. So of course we decided to climb up to the set. It was crazy to see this place. It still pretty much looked like it did from the show. On the pole that said where to go. I carved mine and the wife’s initials inside of a heart. Just to make a little keepsake for years to come.

Most people don’t know

When I can allocate time to it, I do all of my own work. With the exception of engine work, painting the car, and some tuning. I know it’s cliche, but there is nothing like working on your own vehicle. Even if it may void a warranty or two, but that’s what today was centered around. Working on my CLK63 BS. I put a new suspension kit on it. It was a crazy ride around town with it, tomorrow I’m taking it down through Mulholland then I’m getting the car dyno’d at EvoSport.

Mulholland pt 2

leave a comment »

Saturday night, after hitting up the taco truck, Laline and I took the Supra onto Mulholland again. This time with my new Ohlins setup instead of the Motons. The car handled much MUCH better with the Ohlins. Of course there was still a bit of a stiff edge to it. But it was not like the Motons. I wish I could keep them, but it’s a crazy stiff ride. Almost race car like. Which was insane, maybe I didn’t set them up correctly or get the car dialed in correctly.  But the Ohlins were strapped in and ready to go. It was pretty sweet. This time the Michelins held up! Which is great because I don’t have to buy a new set for the car.

The drive on Mulholland!

leave a comment »

It was insane until I started feeling the car fight back a little. It is the suspension and it’s too rough for the street. But overall the drive was absolutely awesome. I was leaving heavy tracks of rubber from my Michelins on the road. No sign of the police though. The drive was literally insane with all of the curves and the adjustments on the drive. I really want a more road and race suspension. Not a purely race and hopefully suspension. Yes I am ditching the Moton setup, but I will be back with something truly unique. Well unique to Supras as I have more suspension work on my car than 95% of the community of Supra owners. Which is a lot I can say.

I am definately going with a Roberuta cup kit, so I may end up with some Top Secret coilovers. Maybe a Ohlins, Bilstein, or Aragosta setup. I am tempted with some Teins, or even a HKS setup. With those NOB coilovers coming out, I looked into those. They’re mainly drift coilovers though, nothing for street/track though. I’ll look around, all I know is the Supra will be sitting until I can get a new setup to attack Mulholland again.

Oh, I need new Michelins too. The 335s are spent after the run on Mulholland, and I mean spent!!!
