  1. That’s just nuts, so stoked for you! There’s so much room to go on your setup, can’t wait to see you turn the wick up, big(ger) numbers to come for sure! Awesome work!
  2. That’s my new screensaver at work. 😉 Hahaha, what a hoot this car is, good grief! I’ve had some runs, all successful so far 😂 Last weekend I checked a big box: CTS-V wagon, 6 speed. He jumped (no honk, no count, he just went WOT), I grabbed 2nd from 35-ish and grabbed on to his pull about 1-2 cars back. I was even at top of 3rd gear, and 4th gear put him in my mirror before Mexico speeds got too high. Very cool guy, we stopped and talked. He was stock, but very rare 6 speed manual. He was complementary of the Saff, prompting me to ask him if he would consider trading, 😂... I would do that trade, just to be clear. Sorry Volvo 🤫 (Sorry I didn’t film this, was a random encounter, which makes it kind of amazing. Thanks! It puts you back, fir sure. Fix your damn R! 🤣
  3. Let’s try this again: http://youtu.be/qOzTseDv-u0
  4. When I look at your engine bae I only see a bowl of spaghetti. JUST joshin’ ya there. Your bay is disgustingly clean, so shut your dang mouth. Your wagon is looking so good, even if I don’t necessarily know if I like roof rails or not. I really vacillate on that topic. But Jesus man, your car is just so nice. 💗

    Those spindles tho! Very nice, and as always very great attention to detail in your work and your write-up. You remind of Big Will in that way. Speaking of, where is he? The rotors are awesome. My only nag is that they rust on the untreated surface just where the hat and rotor face meet. It’s just a mil or two and probably nobody notices but me, but I do. All in all they’re fantastic though, and great info about their performance and heat shedding ability. I’ll be interested in your feedback on the pads. I’ve only run Textar semi-metallic, which iPd sells and provided with their old Porsche BBK. I think they’re fantastic. Relatively low dust, no noise except under 4mm pad depth, and great grabbers. Great job Andy!
  6. Man, you get the award for stick-to-itiveness and wherewithal! This car keeps throwing you curves but you keep battling, props from someone who’s been there! Seems like you’re getting close, though. Keep on truckin’ and keep up the good work!
  7. Some smudge with sage, some spray loads on the walls... it all acts to christen the dwelling. Approved.
  8. All I know is that the last page and a half of this thread has resulted in my cum sock getting saturated. Gross, I know. But true.
  9. (We learned it from watching Laser owners) 😛
  10. @Brandnirons is my Instagram, I need to put an updated build thread together... I’m a sporadic forum poster.
  11. Nice work! Car is looking great, love the Jag wheels!
  12. Thanks man, I really appreciate that! It was a blast, incredible cars and really a great, supportive environment. Everyone there was so cool. My best trap was 139.23 mph. I could have improved that if I were a bit more aggressive off the line and in 1st gear. I didn’t want to break my car in the middle of the California Central Valley, lol... I still had to go to the Davis meet Sunday and drive home to Portland after. I expected about 10 mph better, but there were dozens of cars slower than my time, so I can’t be too disappointed. This car shines from a roll, it’s always gonna struggle from a dig.
