    Show me your FAST cars and trucks!

    Dyno'd today. 442 whp. There are issues with the tune (see the dip in the power curve) and possible the fuel pump running out of volume. So I expect to make closer to 500 whp once I go back after some more tuning and all. Fwiw, this combo is maxing out a ZL1 fuel pump....

    Show me your FAST cars and trucks!

    Ran the new setup and got a 7.74 @ 91 mph in the 1/8 and 11.9 @ 116 mph in the 1/4. Stock, they're 13.1 sec cars at just over 4,000 lbs with driver in car and at least 3/4 tank of fuel. I'm 210lbs and 3/4 tank of fuel, the scale was at 4040lbs. Tried stalling up, but got bad wheel hop on the street tires, so started leaving at idle and got my best 60ft's and ET doing it that way. Tried turning traction control off, but it just lit the tires up through 1st 2nd and 3rd gears, so I gave up on that run. Need a DR or slick to stall it up and turn off TC. Last issue is the trans tune. On up-shifts, you can't tell in the video, but it was over revving and bouncing off the rev limiter at just over 6,800 rpm's. My MPH and rpm was set correctly, but during the shift it would over rev while shifting. Weird, but working on ironing that out now. I work out those issues and it should be a good bit faster. FWIW, guy in right lane had similar mods and was on a DR's.

    She's done and waiting on a tune. Again, un-tuned, but here is an idle clip:

    I would not even take that out of the garage right now. With as busted up as the roads are, it'll surly get some rock chips. My SS got pelted one day. Nicked the hood stripe, chip in the windshield, chip on the outer drivers side pillar...

    ID850’s ZL1 fuel pump Got the Circle D 3200-3400 RPM 2B Converter but didn't snap a picture: https://www.texas-speed.com/p-4365-circle-d-specialties-high-perfromance-gm-6l80-ls-torque-converter.aspx Everything is being installed now and will be tuned shortly after.

    Well, I got a day off yesterday, so I finally felt like I had the energy to do something. I started swapping my valve springs and retainers off the TFS heads and put the Texas Speed PAC springs and TI Retainers on. The valve seals looked the exact same, so I didn’t bother swapping those since they’re brand new anyway.

    I have a few revolvers to share with you. Some TC's. One without a scope is a 454 Casull. Just got bored and decided to snap some pictures with the iPhone.

    Kids SHOULD walkout at school

    Public education is liberal-left indoctrination while colleges are alt-left Marxist indoctrination camps now. They prep them young for the hard core Marxism they'll get in college.

    Ruger Precision Rifle

    Online, it's sold out/out of stock. It'll probably be better to search in person locally until the supply builds up.

    Non NFA 11.5" AR

    Ouch... 4 MOA.... Not too exciting. I'll keep an AR pistol with brace. They can keep the gimmick to skirt NFA. http://www.gunsandammo.com/shot-show/franklin-armory-presents-reformation-a-new-line-of-firearms/

    Non NFA 11.5" AR

    The binary triggers have been out for a good while now. They fire one time (not continuously) on the pull and the release. By definition of the law, it is totally legal and the BATFE has approved it before it ever went up for sale. It must be a typo. They list that rifle on their NFA page: https://www.franklinarmory.com/collections/short-barreled-rifles/products/bfsiii-franklin-armory-11-5-libertas-sbr-nfa Maybe they meant to sell it with a pistol stabilizing brace because a butt-stock with an 11.5 inch barrel makes that an SBR.
