Thanks guys, I didn't race the car, just took part in the show. Watched some of the races, there was another Sterling Gray '13 there with a blower on it and running an auto, he was constantly running 10.2 @ 133 ... Looked great!

Thanks Tony.

Yesterday the wife and I took both cars to an annual show in Bethlehem, NH.
I ended up winning another trophy.

We went shopping a bit after that, then we went to the Mount Washington Hotel and had a couple cocktails and some food.
Left the house at 7AM, got home at 10PM, put about 275 miles on the cars, had a great time

Changed my front rotors and pads today. It really wasnt that bad of a job. I was quoted $150 if I brought my own parts, so I figured I might as well give it a try myself. Much easier then I remember from the last time me and a friend changed some pads 10 years ago


They had a black coating on them, after the bed-in it's gone.

I had a productive week. Finally got the fender damage from the fat raccoon repaired. Steeda Triax short throw shifter installed. Carbon fiber drive shaft. BMRP street catback exhaust. This is starting to turn into the car I wanted.

Just do it.
'13-'14 TVS & injectors, FRPP twin-65mm throttle body, JLT 123mm intake, and a matching tune.
That's my wife's combo and she went from 551/546 to 656/661.
Much different car. A blast.

Her blower had some light porting done to the elbow and the intake part of the blower, but it's running the stock pulley.

I was working with Zegin Braun. He was quick replying with the emails, but very short. If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll pass along his info.
Well,......they sold the car.
I went back every 3-4 days to see if it was sold and low and behold.

Very cool! How many miles? I haven't done them yet on Marilyn, but maybe someday. 16k miles only and light use, so the brakes are still good.

Thanks! I have 26k on my 2012. The pads were almost at the wear indicators. The shop were I had my clutch (among many other things) installed about a month ago told me my rotors had grooves wearing into them, which was surprising to me based on the miles. Figured I might as not mess around and just knock it out.
