PostSubject: well that didnt last long......   Mon Jan 19, 2009 2:49 pm

well if you remember i told you guys about my driveshaft nightmare and how apparrantly it led to the early demise of my spec stage 3 clutch. Anyway, i got a new clutch installed that my friend gave me that was supposed to be equal to the strength of a ram race clutch. i think its was a ebay knockoff but at the time i was thinking FREE is FREE so i put it in.

well... hehe, that bitch is slipping more than a one legged man on a ice rink. I had just barely broken it in when i went to the local drive in and some guy in a 1992 mustang coupe with heads, cam started talking shit to everybody . he was all like im too fast for you guys and the people that wanted to race him couldnt because they were "too fast" to race and its wasnt fair for a race car to race a street car. Anyway i finally spoke up qand asked why he was so fast? he said did you want some of my coupe? i said im not scared..lol. so i looks at his motor and he is obviously hiding a nitrous kit because i grapped the No2 line and asked whats this?? HE gets all red and said oh thats nothing.... come to find out he is spraying a 150 shot. then he says he hwas to put his slicks on and i laughed because i was on radials. an hour later and we are done and people are betting on him till i start my futura up lol.

so we head out and get to the spot and we do the burnouts and he is doing it like john force so im starting to get nervous bacuase i had to let my buddy drive my car and i hope i win. well we race and right out of the hole im dragging his ass and we finsh up beating him by a couple of bus lenghts and he gets all pissy. so i tell him we can go again and i beat him AGAIN but i notced my car is smoking and turns out it is the clutch going up in smoke!!!!!!!! i shit my pants and we go back to the drive in and he starts talking shit about how i was too chicken to give him a 3rd race Rolling Eyes






good news is the car is plently drivable and got me home. but i jsut ordrered a spec stage three+ kit so hopefully it will hold up, to my little 408 because its rated for 800fucking horsepower.


hope this is a good read. later.

Well, it didn't last long, but at least it lasted long enough to give a cocksucker what he needed.

i had a similar thing happen back in the late 70's with a Grand Am, dude made my GTO look like a 6 cylinder camaro. i not only took the bait, i think i ate the pole. i never saw his engine, but i saw plenty tailights!!! anybody can run nitrous, it takes a brain to run gasoline.(no offense to nirous guys) fair is fair.

Your nitrous comments remind me of something that happened to me long, long ago...

[Wayne's World Flashback]

I was on my way to the local cruise-in one Sunday night in about 2000 or so, and one of the first '99 Mustangs pulled up next to me at a red light. I'd seen this car around some. It was that hideous Mountain Dew can green, with a body kit, 18" wheels that had these wavy spokes, and an aftermarket exhaust. Now, my car's not all that fast, but I figured I might have enough. So, the light changes green, and I kinda puss letting out the clutch (a common problem with me), but I hose him anyway.

We pull into the cruise in.

He comes over to me, and he's all, "Let's go again. I couldn't see the light because of the big, stupid black vinyl strip on my windshield. I wasn't ready. Let's go." I decline, and he comes back with, "You know you'd want another shot if you lost." Well, I couldn't argue with that logic, so I consented. We found a less used road with a light, waited for it to turn red, and pulled up to it. When the light turned green, I was determined to not be such a clutch slipper. I wasn't. When it finally gained some traction, I was a little ahead, so I hit second, and kept on pullin'. Hit third, and the next light turned yellow...shut down.

Leaving the second light, I left him again. This is getting boring. So, I pulled into a convenient lot, where he says, "Let's go again! I hit the rev limiter in second gear!" I said, "Do you know why you hit the rev limiter?" He says, "Why?" I said, "Because you were too busy looking at Fairmont taillights to look at your tach!" and let out the clutch.

A little while later, I got back to the cruise-in, and about 40 or so people are all walking toward my car in a big group. I got worried. Then, a fella I knew stepped to the front of the crowd, and yelled out, "Hey, what's this I hear about you having nitrous on that thing?" I was like, "Huh?" He said, "Yeah, that guy in the green Mustang says that's the only way you'd be so much faster than him." I said, "Oh, okay," and opened the trunk.

Not only was there no nitrous, but the trunk was front to back and wall to wall with Bounty paper towels. See, Wal-Mart had them on sale, and the wife and I were there right before I went cruising. I had forgotten to take them out.

[/Wayne's World flashback]

Anyway, that's my nitrous story.

Later,
Mike.
