I just can't believe how clean the undercarriage is. Mine looks like a crack whore they pulled out of a ditch by comparison.
:ROFLMAO: Thats the difference between thoroughly enjoying the car and not enjoying it nearly enough!

1. I’m interested to see how the new converter does for you!
Track opens in May, I'll definitely report back then, stay tuned!

2. please give us your wizard knowledge of how the hell you keep the under carriage so damn spotless lol
HAHA, Well first I am NO Wizard, but thanks just the same.... I started with a pretty clean unit, and I probably spend too much time under my lift ;) LOL!

Since I'm still waiting for the snow to melt to try out the new converter (yeah, seriously :() I thought I'd remove the inner liners and clean the rubber from the rear wheel housings this past weekend.

Of course you did. There was probably a smidge of dirt hiding in there. 🤭

LOL! Not quite, although my pals think I should wear a white lab coat in there! You might be surprised to know that it's shared with two daily drivers, where the majority of our annual driving weather is through salty slushy snow. I have become very skilled with a mop and bucket! :ROFLMAO:

Well finally got the car on the track to test the new converter and ported SC. I was blown away by the car, to say it outperformed my expectations would be an understatement! Best ET was 10.94 and mph was 129.27. This is with the factory cam! Lifting the wheels on the launch was just icing on the cake!!
