All to drop 2 seconds. That's why I figured $5000 for a used chromoly roller, about $30,000 for a Nelson engine, I'd have a little more in it but could lift at the 1/8 and easily run a 9 once I sorted out getting that monster out of the hole.
Fuel... had this cool airomotive set up. But i burnt the pump a couple months ago. We just never got the car tuned and dialed in. Bin dumping money in the grand so i havent messed with it. More than likely going to off it i have to many toys and we just had twins. Not enough money to go around. ZJ is actually more fun!! I like running things over. Thats how i know i own a zj when it takes every waking moment to keep running


When in doubt throttle out!

HA! Spray the car behind you at a redlight then get out with a squeegee, clean the window (even if the spray misses) and hold your hand out for a tip.

I would so love to mod mine to be able to do that to tailgaters. I'd go through so much washer fluid.

Most of the side roads here have no shoulders and drainage ditches on the sides. I would if I could.

WASH! WASH?.......sacrilege I say. Burn the witch at the stake.

Mine gets washed when it rains, or when I can't see the doorhandle.

When you watch the Daytona 500 just so you can watch the pit crews in action to gain some pointers so when you need to do a trail repair, you can do it as fast as possible.

On lap 2 tonight, there was a big wreck that took out 5+ cars, Fox is cutting away to shoot progress on repairs in the garages, interesting stuff. I wish I had a garage like theirs and pit crews to fix my ZJ.
