Fuck ya! I'm in the final steps of getting gold car up and running from the winter. I'm planning on participating in the MDU series this year and the No Star Bash. I can't wait to see some of you guys again. Drift, drink, and have fun. I'm tired of driving my truck all of the time.
I wrote a gold car/year write up on my super sweet website, you should check it out www.jakematuren.com
. I need to work on it alot more, but my time has been focused on other, more fun, shit.
During the winter build I spent all my time fixing problems and potential problems. Chris Conley and I all worked on gold car over the winter and we modified the front end suspension to withstand more thrashing, built bolt on fender braces out of aluminum square stock, upgraded IC piping to ensure no air leaks (ever!), and strapped a heatshield in place. So, I'm happy with where the car sits and I'm investing time and effort right now to minimize any little problem that could pop up on the track. I hope to be in a comfortable financial spot by mid season to get a real roll rage.
Here's what it's like to be in the driver's seat
The dreaded automatic brake pedal problem is fixed
Wiring status inside the trunk
The front of the motor shot
Playing around with ideas for the cold piping at the moment.
AN bung needs to go on there somehow.
And Chris's car.
