Didn't run due to leaking stock passenger strut and FMHE...killed me to watch everyone else Honestly, most of the SS/TC's needed driver mod just because of experience level. Shroogis killed em all except for the one who hangs with and buys everything Powell (Loki).



Good to know, you ever get your air dam situation straightened out?
OTT? dont hold ur breath. Core return? Fail on that it seems. I will prolly make a replacement for Droxity's 04 with welded steel, the alloy required to make a billet due to the shape is a lot of money as is the machining required, and there must be all of (how many?) 10 2004 cars left that peeps care about. I have an 05 -up, cradle now. BTW Loki drove very well, and has a nice TC, and Shroogis was first class. Like Wangspeed says, autoX is more about the driver than the car.

the car helps tho' no doubt

John, if you say your gonna build a mount out of a burndt grilled cheese sandwich I'd still probably try it Just let me know...I can still see if I can source a core and send it to you as well.

I was very impressed with Loki as well, even more so after speaking with him at CED...driver mod definitely the least expensive and most impactful mod one can make 4 sure.

The other biggest mod I need to make is weight reduction, which is code for my fat ass getting less fat.

The thought is pure ambiguous

No. I am going to make a mount so I dont have to deal with cores anymore. It will not be made of alloy. It will be steel and be reasonably priced...need a couple of weeks to make it all happen. Porblem is I dont have my core back, and I will have to mock it up in an 04 cradle (got that) with a motor ( got that too) lol

to get it all done.

I've got 2 rl's that get The best treatment. It kills me to see one thing wrong with either. I've considered buying an 05 plus cradle just because of the mounts

2004 onyx black redline
1992 Torch Red z34 lumina getrag 284

I also port and polish lsj heads for a very reasonable price, pm me for details

mods in your sig isn't cool anymore

its ez to change but the radiator supports are a pita, andmove the bottom of the radiator forward. I just let my rad angle down and forward, but I have to modify the rad tie bar to clear the (thicker) rad/racegriffin/ac rad assembly.

New mounts will take care of the few people. Just makes me wonder about why I dont get cores back. equally a pita. I dont charge for cores, but maybe thats why I dont get them back in good time.
