    MPI regarding roll cage addition to insured street car

    The other thing that just occurred to me, is that the original poster says that the car is fairly new... Pretty much all newer cars have side and/or curtain airbags as standard. I can see a roll cage getting in the way of the airbags functioning properly. Not sure if that factors into MPI's reasoning, but I can understand it if it does.

    MPI regarding roll cage addition to insured street car

    Nish's GT-R ran in the 10's when we took it to the drags... Some stock cars can do those times.

    1973 Celica ST (considering subframe connectors)

    Oh man... a blow-through turbo on a carb? I can see that being a complete jetting/fueling nightmare to get running properly.

    Sports car recommendations

    You could always just be like everybody else and get an S2000. Arguably one of the best sports cars/roadsters ever made. Though I'm not sure you could find a decent one for less than $15k. I'd be surprised if you could even find a Z4 for under $15k that wasn't smashed or bagged to hell.

    Feedback Request - New Race Prep & Fabrication Shop

    This is a poorly prepared survey. It is assuming that any vehicle that you may already own is NOT modified. All of the questions deal with future modifications, if any. At no point does the survey ask if your vehicle is already modified... On this forum, pretty much everybody here a) already owns a modified car, and b) most people here does/did/will do the modifications themselves.

    You only get that big a power increase if the stickers are yellow.

    GT-R brake pads

    I don't remember the brakes squealing on either of Nish's GT-R's, and as far as I know, they both just ran OEM Nissan pads. Does your friend's car perhaps already have some noisy aftermarket crap pads? Get some Nissan pads and call it a day.

    Where to get brakes changed?

    Just dive right in, man. There really isn't anything there that you can mess up. Remove the brake caliper and mount (depending on car), and the rotor should slide right off the wheel studs. Then just reverse the order. Once you do one wheel, you'll have the confidence to do the other three. You'll see just how easy it is to do a brake job, and you'll save yourself hundreds of dollars that you'd otherwise be paying in labour costs.

    Compression and/or Leak Down Tester

    If it was white smoke, blown head gasket would be a suspect for sure. Have one of you trail behind while the other blasts it in front to confirm.

    Bah, I should have checked there first. Sorry. Thanks, Shawn.

    Gimil Event Help

    This may not be the thread for it (but I didn't see another thread related to the Gimli event)... But do we have an itinerary/timesheet for Sunday? I ask because I likely won't be able to make the morning autox event, but I'd like to run the evening event. Is that going to be doable?

    2018 Spring/Summer Drive

    We didn't really stop much, to be fair. We pretty much nailed it right to Westhawk Lake. And once we got there, a couple of the guys had to immediately book it home. My wife and I snapped a few of just ourselves and the BMW in front of the lake, but I don't imagine anybody cares to see those.

    2018 Spring/Summer Drive

    Why don't the Cars & Coffee guys ever come out with their Lambos and Ferraris? Perfect time for them to open up those cars.

    Strange looking part

    What kind of BMW is this, anyway? Just hope you don't need to swap out the Eccentric Shaft Sensor for the Valvetronic system... God what a pain in the ass that was when I did mine.

    Those are some nice bushings on the guibo.
