It's a toad that when it comes on tv, hypnotizes everyone to do what he says. Sach is trying to make you bend to his will.

Saika: 2012 Track Slut

Ah gotcha. Yeah I'm looking for a replacement now...
Sway is like a race horse; if you push it sometimes, it's ok, but if you are hard on it all the time, then it's going to break its ankle and then you will have to shoot it.

I havent touched my car since I loaded it up on the trailer to bow out of 100 DoD early. Yeah, it had been sitting on the trailer for 6 weeks and had 3 flat tires, lol.

Finally got it off the trailer last weekend and took some pics.

The hideously growing windshield crack

New project in progress, Ford 8.8 LSD disc rear from an Exploder because at some point I am going to get more power and AE86 axles are too weak to deal with and Supra axles are stupid rare to find. If I wrecked with one I'd be down for like 2 years to look for another, so dependability is off the charts low. Hoping to have this Ford rear shipped off to a shop to get the 4-link Toyota mounts welded on and have one side shortened to have a centered diff.

Just fired her up one last time with a bone stock 4age:
Image

Ready to donate the 4age to Riley:
Image

Already stripped the bay too fast. Cooling and half the wiring disconnected already.
Image

Kinda sucks that Riley takes too long for the layers of paint to dry, heh.

Plans:

- Strip car
- Pull cracked windshield
- Paint interior/cage
- Fix dents/wreck damage
- Repaint the red part of the car
- Rebuild 4agze with bigger supercharger
- Get Ford 8.8 rear built and installed, getting it delivered to a shop in MD next week to get the axle housing shortened and the 4 link mounts fabbed.

Deadline: May 2013.

I'm pretty sure I'll end up getting a cage for Riley. If so, I'll get that cage put in closer to May.

My Saika project deadline is May, so I hope to be tandeming in either car by that time.

Got a little bit of progress done, like 15 minutes last night, and about 2 hours before I went to work today.

- Driveshaft removed
- Trans fluid drained
- Trans mount unbolted
- Exhaust downpipe removed
- Fuel line disconnected
- Most of the wiring harness disconnected for engine removal

I'm pretty much set to pull the engine out Saturday! Hoping to start washing the engine and get some seals replaced.
