It's like a rolling Halloween **** show on wheels! So random and so fun! Seriously, it'll be a road trip you won't forget... I don't recommend taking a car you really car a ton about though cause it'll likely end up covered in eggs at the very least by the end of the trip.

You Win by Hitting the Checkpoints and Looking Awesome

RCR isn't technically a race. The team with the lowest odometer score and best costumes wins. Each team must hit several checkpoints along the route, including sites like abandoned airfields, giant decommissioned howitzers, airplane graveyards, and other absurdly awesome locations.

we used to get rental cars, install nitrous, and run them at midnight mayhem. We did a chrysler 300, a seabring, a ford mini van, and one or two others.

It was awesome having slicks on the front of the mini van and beating civics and **** while we had like spare tires and jacks and crap in the back.

We raced rally raced a rental in h/s. Friends older brother rented it, ripped out the rear seat, welded in a roll bar and raced it. Cleaned it up, cut out the roll bar, put the seats back in it, made a lower bumper valence piece out of some large white PVC to replace the one that got ripped off and returned it.

I'm assuming you know about the Shelby Hertz rental mustangs back in the day and the stories behind those...

Friend of mine used to work for boyd cottington. They rented a ferrari for a month, pulled the whole drivetrain out and built a 30's ford based around it. Then put the drivetrain back in the ferrari and returned it. Ferrari took longer then anticipated to deliver so it worked as plan b. That same guy now works for Chip Foose as his main chassis guy.

My only experience with nitrous was in college in a roomies S10 with a 4.3. It was rad!!!! He popped the motor shortly after graduation though. That kept me from ever playing with nitrous again.

Personally I am treating my wife to some Raising Cane's for dinner. If you are in the caniac club they have a bogo on combo's tonight. That plus we know that the kids will eat it. Followed up with a trip to Sportsman's warehouse for some ammo and a tent then call it a night. Why yes, I am a true romantic.

I'll be in the garage all night... No time for valentines! Gotta motor that needs to be running REALLY soon if I ever want to actually work on my own crap! LOL Super ambitious but I'm really hoping to have front end 100% finished and then the rear end completely 100% finished and prepped and ready to go again by early next week if not end of the weekend! Basically I'm looking at probably 25-30 hours of work between now and sunday night I think.

Going too big with a dry system? You can go pretty big(200-300) with a wet system and be...ok as long as sprays are in short bursts. Use forged internals and you can go beyond 400 with a wet system. Dry systems IMO are only good for up to 100 in short bursts. I knew a guy with a Dakota 6cyl spraying a 250 dry shot for minutes at a time on the freeway. He was genuinely puzzled when his motor popped! Told him he was retarded when he first talked about spraying on the freeway.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

No that makes sense I tried to get my wife to be ok with going out next week but she wasn't having it. Should be fine though I've never had a bad experience at Lawrys.
