Yessir, he's a really nice guy. Knew nothing about him, history, or car till this weekend. He gave me some advice to start out on the cheap to get my car handling better while we waited in line to hit the course. He loved the front coil setup when I first got the car. I too would love to follow in his footsteps as that car is legit. Like I said, felt like a bank vault on the course, completely solid, flat, and seriously refined. He's a damn good driver and very aggressive. At spots I thought he was going to lift he was hammer down, was unnerving and mind blowing. After I got home I emailed him his pics and talked to him a bit more, he directed me to his youtube account, man has he got it together!!

Adam will have to update his thread with pics, he's got his own story to tell.

Here's all the pics of the autox from that weekend if anyone is bored: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PO...QUijlhtpZLV0-R

Thanks man, wasn't a bad time, just wish we could have had all the cars together to get better pics.

Once I'd gotten to TN I thought something didn't sound right. Sounded like valvetrain and some piston slap. Bugged me enough I pulled the valve covers and checked for any issues. No broken springs, missing retainers, all rockers at 0 lash, and all rocker bolts torqued.



Figured I'd pull the plugs and check the burn patterns. Damn car is burning clean but found the issue. #2, figured it happened when I was driving through the torrential rain of the hurricane? The electrode was rusty where it was cracked. Replaced the plug and romped on it last night, man the cold air really wakes this Ol girl up! Unintentionally hit the speed limiter, 125 mph, forged slip yoke and dialed in pinion angle work! May be hitting the track Thursday.
