You aren't teaching him a f*ckin' thing. He won't remember or won't use that general-ass sh*t you just threw out there. If he got the bitch, he knows the bitch.

Once again newyorker talks himself into a wall. And we all feel just a little bit better about ourselves.

SRT-4's struggle to get high 13's.

The new Caliber SRT-4 gets 14's.


But wait...the truth is you don't know any "7th gen k20 swap owners". Because really, who does that shit? What a waist of f*ckin' money. I'd rather buy a cheap Del-Sol and strip/turbo the bitch to 13's.



I do know this....I'm running low 12's...on street tires.

Bitches.

No, he's totally serial. He's going to road race it against an Elantra for pinks, spin out of control, hit a car, then make a run for it, and post all about it here on CF.



I'm actually really curious to see how this turns out. He could be lying, but he could be telling the truth....

Either way, the only way for us to believe you, NY, is for you to post a pic of your receipt of the deposit. That too hard?

Your name's Alex....

that's no secret.

How many times do we have to say this? DO NOT MAKE CLAIMS WITHOUT BACKING THEM UP!!!

And if you think 13-15 dollars an hour is a lot, then you need a wake-up call, particularly in the form of supporting yourself.

I have 2 shops in mind as of now.

shop one is the shop that did my transmission repair it is a newer place so they might be able to toss me a discount in return of me spreading the word of their place (word of mouth and they said they might do some graphic work on the car) this shop is still looking into the procedures behind it before they give me a price

shop two is the shop that did my alignment..i dont think i will get much from them sponsor wise because they are mostly RWD oriented. they have a few shop cars that they take to local race events, and are currently working on a Lexus GS430 (i believe) drift car

road racing isnt street racing. road racing is racing around a track...at least here its nicked that. things like LeMans, F1, etc. could be called road racing..of course my car wont be on that level, but just clearing it up

Il consider it. in the meantime im more concerned with working and makin money for it all
i am looking at install cost, as well as 420 for the mount adapters, 300 for the redone wiring harness, and 350 for the axles all from hasport, plus the cost of the engine, plus the cost of the labor (hopefully i can get a deal here but im looking at at least 600 id assume)

Ok fair enough....I just saw it as the same as street racing.....But then again, in your scenario, surely it would mean the same thing....

One other thing, I know you can use the 'quote' function, so please refrain from posting more than one post at a time (same goes for everybody obviously...)

No, I meant the "quote" function...I was referring to newyorker (and others) replying to each individual member in different posts, rather than quoting them all in the same post...
