    It is. The building was only 3 years old when he bought it. Since then, he has done all kinds of cool stuff to it. The Camaro in the background, he has been doing all the work to it himself. (Detroit Speed suspension & mini-tub) So he does get the shop dirty.

    Uhhh, what?? [/QUOTE]

    I guy I used to work with would say that when he liked an idea you had, was agreeing with you, or was aknowledging he heard you and would comply. It stuck with me over the years.

    Love to see your work. I wish I was 30 years younger so I could go into debt, build a garage, fill it with tools and a lift and enjoy this hobby beyond basic tune-up and bolt ons work, understanding the theory, and driving the car. So I am building a theater room in my basement instead. I at least have the tools for that and the structure already exists.

    Hope to see you this spring...and the car!

    I decided to change out the rear coil over springs over the weekend. I removed the 150s, installed some 95s, and those bottomed out. So I ended up running some 125s


    Looks a lot better now.


    After a few test hits in Mexico, I hit up the local car wash.


    I dont know about you guys, but I cant wait to hit the track again! All this quarantine shit sucks ass!

    You running the coil overs in the stock location? What length did you go with?

    I always had issues with the ones I had. Either it was to hard, to soft and bounced something horrible, or just sat to low. I ended up going back to a regular spring rather than fighting it at the time.

    Im with you! I cant wait till this all clears up and we can get back to living a normal life again. I had the black car out for 10 minutes the other day on back roads just to get over the fever some!

    Yes, I ended up running the 12" x 125lb Afco Coil over springs. The car seemed to like the switch, but until the track opens, kinda hard to tell.

    Good parts for sure!

    Once you get it sorted out, you shouldn't have any issue getting it to 60 like it should. Should pick up a good bit too Id think.

    Im sure you can get you 60ft. down in the low 1.30's and pick up a couple/few tenths in the quarter.

    I love how the coyote cars leave and how they sound. Very hard to beat them!

    If it would pick me up I would. Hopefully my new coil springs will help.

    I think that will be a night and day difference!

    Im in the same boat with this virus crap. I had plans to get most of my stuff bought and this hit. Im almost nervous now to spend a good amount of cash with not knowing how this is going to play out or how long. Im still working but as soon as a few people start getting it, Im sure they will shut us down.
