Dyno day!

leave a comment »

I made 1150RWHP on a dyno yesterday. The torque curve was insane now that I finally made one full wide open throttle pass on the rollers. What made it even better was the new Toyo R888s hooked like a mother fucker! They even stayed in traction during the hard highway pull on the way home. People liked the car, I love the car. I’d like to get some more aero bits on the underside of the car. Just to keep the car stable on the highway and when I do top speed events out in the mile or in the Silver State Classic.

Friday the wife stopped by the office, because the new couch was in. She even crashed out on the couch about thirty minutes after coming over. I let her nap out on it for most of the morning because she was tired from the night before. Not because we were sexin’, because she needed help with a paper. That I ended up finishing for her.

New tires

leave a comment »

I ordered some new tires today, the Michelins are great, but as you know, take some time to heat up. I was looking around and found the Toyo Proxes R888s. In 19s they offer 295s and 305s. The Michelins are 335s in the back. But I’ll sacrifice some tire width for quicker warm up temps and therefor more traction early on. Because opening up the car for a couple gears after I warm it up. Is quite fun, but it gets old. I’m not much of a burnout fan unless I’m drifting. So they are on their way in, I got 295/30-19ZRs and 305/30-19ZRs. Let’s hope my quest for the perfect tire is over!
