My mechanic buddy that can weld and has a bender offered too do my exhaust and Summit Racing is local too me, so I can order the pipe, muffler, tip, mounts and couplers and have them shipped too my house, not sure if there open too the public, going too remove the O2 Sensor and Cat, I put a $25 Summit Racing 2 stage muffler and tip on my 97 Jeep ZJ with a 5.2 V8 and it sounded dam good and I liked it, cause I still need some back pressure for it too run good Right ?? my next problem is I need too run a new hot wire for the electronic choke or install a manual choke cable kit, cause pumping the shit out it when its cold is getting old too start it in the winter

Not sure on the carburetored, my 3rz is EFI and has no issue with zero back pressure. I could blow a 2.25” ball from the collector back. It is loud AF under heavy throttle.

I had the cat removed and had my man weld in a 2’ Cherry Bomb in its place. The good one that is scalloped on the inside. It behaves similar to a resonator and in cabin drone/noise is minimal. The straight through muffler is too much. A good ‘turbo’ style muffler would suffice.

I didn’t take a pic but my new Bilstein struts and shocks arrived yesterday. I gotta swap the shock bushings out to fit my Tacoma but it’ll be just right.

It's weird, common caliber stuff is flying off shelves, but match ammo seems to be readily available. Granted it's more expensive, but it's out there at least.

Just ordered them and don’t expect to see them for a month, but I ordered 2 of the Olive Green SCX24 Deadbolts, one for Dad and one for me, plus a spare battery for each. I also ordered a few new shirts from BlipShift for myself, including the new Smoking Tire cola called The Canyon Run (which is a take on the original Cannonball Run Movie poster, but with Matt’s and Zack’s cars instead), BS’ 2020 Apex Everything shirt, and their “Human Torque Wrench" shirt.

Quick edit, I went ahead and ordered the P.U.G. lower intake for the Chrysler Pentastar V-6 family and new gaskets for my 200 from Summit (a first for me), the "upgrage" lower intake will apparently flow better in as molded form from the factory that the older, original design lowers do AFTER somebody ports them! Sounds like it whouldn't matter what car the Pentastar is in and if it's a 3.2l from a KL Cherokee or the 3.6l nearly everything else got some form of and tuning isn't required to see the improvments out of it over stock.

As of right now, stuff should start arriving Mid-April and the Axials and batteries should get here in about a month since those are backordered to the end of April

I finally got my hands on SRB chassis, its in rough shape but looks like the chassis is all there, I already have a Sand Scorcher Bug body set and some Frog front and rear rims and tires, I have already looked online and found a guy on Ebay selling individual parts from a new released kit and see I need the roll bar and the 2 rear body clips and also found the vintage CRP kits too add coil springs too the front and rear shocks, the chassis should be here on the 9th going to fit in nicely with my other Vintage Tamiya's I have a 83 Subaru Brat and a 85 Wild One and a 80's something TA02 and 90's something TA04S and 2 2000 something TT02's

Some Fiocchi Exacta Aero slugs. 12ga, 437gr, 1560fps. That'll leave a mark.

I've been doing a lot more sim racing while on lockdown, so I broke down and finally ordered the last piece of Fanatec gear I needed to finish my sim rig out with all Fanatec gear. I'm tired of having to get out tools to switch from sequential to manual H gate gearboxes. Can't wait for this to arrive.

Haven't actually received it yet (should be delivered tomorrow, or Friday), but I've decided to get into another aspect of RC. I've flown helicopters & drones (I'm actually getting ready to sell my Yuneec Typhoon H, along with ALL accessories), I have several land-based surface vehicles...and now, it's time to 'get wet'. If you can "read between the lines", you know what's about to come...and, for those who can't, here's a photo:https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...a062977625.jpgHeaded my way is a ProBoat SonicWake, a 36" FE monohull, with a couple of upgrades (dual pickup rudder, and single-piece HD flex cable) already installed by OSE prior to shipping. Also, coming from "the land Down Under" are another couple of upgrades, in the form of adjustable trim tabs, and larger turn fins. Looking forward to it.

Fast boats are nice ( +120 km/h )

But when they fail it can be just as expensive as when other RC things fail, water are not soft or merciful at those speeds.
Ill leave that stuff with my friend who only been marginally successful with those damn things.

Got to love new toys. Picked this up today. Charging four batteries at once will be sweet. I know it's not the most powerful charger but for what I do it's perfect. Just need to sit down this weekend and finish programming it.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...a9a4e22681.jpg
