You ever heard of that dude who traded a red paper clip, and he kept trading things, and eventually was offered a roll in a movie because he was getting so famous for what he did, but he ended up trading the movie roll to some other dude for his house. He traded a red paper clip for a house. I think you might be that guy... Hahaha

I have heard of that fellow. A few of my close friends know what I do on the side. But I don't want everyone to know that I like to buy/sell cars for profit lol They think you're a real asshole for making a Dollar then rolleyes

Nice job, and the Si sounds good! Looks like your front end is plowing a bit, causing you to overshoot a few cones - a thicker rear sway bar might help, or in the mean time just brake harder before turning the wheel.

Steering tip: if you can keep your hands at the 9-3 positions, and avoid shuffling the wheel, you might gain a few tenths per run. When your arms cross and reach the limits of rotation, try taking one hand off the wheel and moving it to the opposite side side. When you straighten back out, you move that same hand back in reverse order. Takes practice. You won't always land at 9 and 3!

Sometimes you can avoid taking a hand off by gripping with the area between your thumb and forefinger (all 4 fingers will hang off the wheel). You can push the wheel past 180º this way, sometimes more. Again, great job, and best of luck next time!

Been a while since I posted.  Wanted to throw up some pics of my other rides.  

First, the 2001 Regal GS.  Some stuff modded... All the maintenance has been done and the aesthetics for the most part (still a little more to do).  Coming up this fall is a T-70 turbo kit.  Should be a fun little thing after that.

Older shot with different headlights.

Next, is the Sierra Denali.  Fantastic truck but had high miles when I got it and needed a crapload of TLC.  It's close to where I want it now.  Probably getting another set of wheels for it soon (Boss 330).  Did all the routine maintenance on it... K&N CAI and new muffler.  DEPO black headlights and black corners.  HIDs for lows and fogs.  2004+Silverado tails.  Black nerf bars.

Rick, you've got some nice-ass automobiles. I've always loved that Regal. Did you just decide to keep it for good? I think I remember you trying to sell it in the past scratch

This is a different Regal Zach. smile Nick bought my old one and he turbo'd it. I sold that car when my family was having health issues and I had no time to care for it. If you look at the regalgs board, his car is the Regal of the month.

*facepalm* I should have known! I was wondering why it looked like a different car than I remembered. Damn hangovers beer 

That car deserves/deserved to be Regal of the month many times over!

Not one for naming my vehicles but this one has to be Minion.  Now that name Minion doesn't really have any sort of respect or reverence (especially since that stupid cartoon movie) to it unless you played Twisted Metal back in the day.  lol

A friend of mine was parting out his car, and I got quite a deal out of it. I now have race headers, and I decided to wrap them last night once the UPS truck finally came at about 7:15PM. Problem was I used gloves which were rubber coated only on the inside half, with a breathable back, so I have little titanium fibers in my hands all over the backs of my fingers, but it's worth it. These will be going on possibly today, likely tomorrow, all depending on the weather. I'll hook it up to my Megan catback first to see how ridiculously loud things will get, then I have an OBX twin-loop catback for when my ears start dying or I get tickets for noise. If you've never heard of or seen a twin-loop muffler, it's the best thing you can do for a Honda since it creates a very deep and not-as-loud tone. Demo video at the bottom, just below the 'before' picture of the muffler. I will be polishing that up tonight with some #0000 steel wool and metal polish!

*Header. Not headers lol.

Cool shit man. That actually sounds good. I like it. It's not a fart can jump

That wrap will keep the header noise out of the cabin too. Nice job. You should head to the store and get yourself a can of DEI Silicone Header Wrap paint (P/N 010302). It's been years since I wrapped and painted mine, and liquids still bead up and roll right off the wrap. Just a nice added protection...

You're right, I have race header* haha, and I read on DEI's website that since I'm using titanium wrap instead of fiberglass, and since my header is stainless instead of mild steel, I don't need the spray.
