  1. Hi, I see that most of you that responded to my Warning Points post think that I give good information in trying to help you out, but disagree with the way I come off in answering posts sometimes. O.K. I will try and be more compassionate when responding to posts as I hope others will be towards me. Thanks, Bill

  6. So as most of you know I've been killing myself to get my car ready for the race last weekend ( Ultimate Street Car Association/ Optima Batteries Qualifier @ Auto Club Speedway in Fontana) Long story short the hard work payed in full. The car was extremely competitive the whole weekend winning most events in all classes, let alone the gt2k (under 3k lbs class) The wider track, better tires and overall look of the car took it home. I beat the living hell out of it like always and it took it in strides. Couldn't be happier with her. Finally I got my ticket back to SEMA for another shot at the title of the Ultimate Street Car. Took first in all events except for the auto x by .3 secs to a nascar framed pickup (No Limit Racing C10) MONSTER haha There are 6 qualifier events left throughout the country, I GUARANTY you will have the most fun you've ever had in your car. Visit www.ultimatestreetcarassociation.com for the list. SIGN UP! On to pics. Video soon, got some editing to do. Thank you to all who have posted in the "going wider" thread, you guys really keep me motivated to continue pushing. I received TONS of coverage, TV, websites and prolly a few magazines in the process. The value of our cars is on the rise! http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3397_zpsbb1f43fd.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3420_zpsc3eab0d4.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3432_zps02ba9ada.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3447_zpse81c4053.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3488_zps97d9afd6.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3440_zpsc0b1fb67.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3459_zps3f828a21.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3527_zps26a3e741.jpg

  8. I just like talking crap. Except for BOHO. Im 100% serious about the things I will do to his mouth! Most engines can suprise. Thats maybe what I like about the out dated, under powered, unsupported G54B. I was at a shop a day ago inquiring about using their dyno and when he asked what I had, I said, "just a crappy 4 banger" he laughed and said, "cant be that bad" he asked more and when I told him what it made and what it runs he laughed and said, thats better than 90% of the cars I see. talked about SRT-4's, Mustangs, Supras, 240's and other V8's. Then I told him it was a single stick 8 valve head and he laughed in amazement. All well built cars are cool as long as they are DIFFERENT.

  15. I want to get a list of guys interested in these that are serious about purchasing. I am currently making them in very low numbers and have 2 sets almost ready to ship. The price is $2300 plus shipping. They will be trimmed long and will need to be professionally installed. They will be coming straight out of the molds. As of right now I'm looking to do 5 Sets.. $1000 deposit due immediately. Please let me know if your interested and serious. These are not for the faint of heart or the "purists" by any means. A LOT of cutting is required. These will make your car 6" wider overall and will allow for 335s in the rear, 315s up front, depending on your wheels. UPDATE! Those who have sent deposits, please send final payments as soon as possible, I will be ready to ship in the next few weeks and can provide quotes as soon as they are boxed up! As far as shipping: I am building frames inside the boxes to ensure strength and safety of the parts. They will be stamped fragile and insurance can be provided at your expense. I'm searching every shipping method available to make this as cheap as possible for you guys. If you have a business address to send them to, it will reduce the cost. http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3440_zpsc0b1fb67.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/Mobile%20Uploads/IMAG2164_zps8a05873d.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/DSC_3459_zps3f828a21.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w239/johnboy9788/untitled-75-X3_zpsacf47935.jpg 1 Leefser------------Deposit sent 2 speedyquest 3 Tae ----------------Deposit sent 4 needsq------------Deposit sent I'm going to post these elsewhere in a few weeks, deposits will secure your set.

  16. But I figured I'd share and maybe it'll inspire a few others to reach out as well. Perhaps with enough of us contacting them asking for support, they'll throw us a few bones? Not sure, figured it was worth a shot. Here's what I sent, as a template: Hello Godspeed, I'm a huge fan of your products, my RX7 ran GS coilovers and my Mazdaspeed Miata will as well. I am writing on behalf of a tiny yet powerful community of enthusiasts who drive the 1986 through 1989 Mitsubishi Starion and Chrysler Conquest models. I don't know how familiar one may be with that particular marque but these cars are amazing and, while I am already in possession of coilovers, it would be amazing to see more support for these cars. With your help, we can keep a dying breed of car from fading away. The limit also doesn't have to be drawn at suspension: These cars are turbocharged from the factory but with limited support we are stuck performing lots of custom and one-off modifications. Godspeed turbochargers, intake manifolds, exhaust manifolds, radiators, intercoolers, brake setups, etc would all prove to be a huge benefit to our community and you would nearly have a monopoly on it as, mentioned previously, the support for our cars is slowly fading away each year. While our numbers aren't extreme, there are more than enough Starion and Conquest drivers to make parts manufacturing worth while, the passion from each driver would ensure that your sales numbers are adequate and that research, design and development costs are promptly met! I'm also sure that there are no shortage of persons who would either: 1. Be willing to let Godspeed use their car for testing. or 2. Have a second Conquest/Starion for testing purposes. I understand this request may be a bit extreme, but I promise that if you at least give us a shot at having some parts made, we'll return the favor with a rather sizable and loyal customer base. Thank you, David Adams

You mean Pickles could have turned his fans on in case the tech had to run the car??? wow. go figure, he drives in a construction zone, hits bumps, blames the contractor- I'm sure he was the only car that went there at 2:30 pm. Then has the front end checked and the shop is gonna pay for his head gasket job. Lucky sob is all i can say. Sure can manipulate the peeps.

  26. When will people open their eyes to the fact that we only invade countries to plunder their natural resources and give the rebuilding contracts to close associates. It has ZERO to do with anything remotely humanitarian. George Bush should be held accountable for what he has done to this country and this world. He is a lying, self-serving weasel and unfortunately only one name on a long list. They don't give two craps about us, why the heck would they care about someone halfway across the world.

Thus the Heavens and the Earth were completed in their vast array." Then God took a day off...just long enough for the serpent to convince the builder of this car that it was actually a good idea.

  34. ***UPDATED- CALENDARS SOLD OUT*** Original 50 sold; Second 25 also sold~~ ALRIGHT EVERYONE! Calendars are off to the printer. I'd like to say thank you for EVERYONE who submitted a photo. I hope there's no hard feelings among anyone who didn't get in THIS time, as next year people who didn't get in are more preferred (We'd like to showcase the variety of cars out there rather than just showing you the same few over and over.) A few things I learned this year doing this that I will improve upon next year: 1) I need to be more explicit with photo size requirements up front. A few of you submitted really great photos that were just too small to look good printed out (they appeared grainy) 2) I need to get a more accurate count of projected sales beforehand. 3) Next year id really like to collaborate with meet planners and get the meet schedule incorporated into the calendar. LUCKILY, all of these things are part of the learning curve and like any project, the next time I do this it will be much more fluid; resulting in a better finished product. It is my hope to continue doing this annually as I enjoy these cars and this community a great deal. Next years calendar should be even better and I hope everyone continues to take and send me great photos of their cars Thanks everyone for your patience, understanding, and support. So on to the product. What you're getting: --A 12 month, wall calendar starting with January 2012, going until December. Document Trim Size Photo Wall Calendar 11.00" x 8.50" 279mm x 216mm 1650 x 1276 pixels Paper Stock: Standard 100 lb text with premium glossy card stock. -- A "Bonus" Insert, with some commonly asked questions and fun facts about Starquests (U.S. import numbers, available colors per year etc) What its going to cost: $20 for 1 $15 for each additional calendar These return from the Printer sometime BEFORE 12/19/2011 and will be able to ship to you starting on that date. If you ordered one of the first 50, the calendar is on its way to you right now! (or already there) Paypal your orders to: Frenchi934@gatech.edu Here is a quick preview of the months: Cover: http://img843.imageshack.us/img843/9274/img1579js.jpg January: http://img809.imageshack.us/img809/1703/vegascruisefullsize.jpg February: http://img94.imageshack.us/img94/1774/img2798xq.jpg March: http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/3186/dsc0123xqw.jpg April: http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/552/nomadv2.jpg May: http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/9412/angleviewcopy1.jpg June: http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/8456/img2277e.jpg July: http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/4568/140742.jpg August: http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/3862/calendarshot.jpg September: http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/3785/sunsethsw.jpg October: http://img847.imageshack.us/img847/3572/88starionesirshpoct2010.jpg November: http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/5081/dscn0950x.jpg December: http://img835.imageshack.us/img835/8875/hpim0652.jpg

  35. so many people carry concealed weapons these days I am amazed when something like this happens where a couple hundred people are gathered and not a single person returns fire----this guy had body armor of some sort on so majority of peoples concealed hanguns probably would not have done much but maybe would have gotten the guy to cease his slaughter after getting hit a couple times----i will not sit here and say shoot for the legs or a head shot cause with all the chaos precision shots would be next to impossible in that enviornment-----another thing is hitting innocents when returning fire wich is problematic----all I know is stuff like this makes me feel better about always having a loaded handgun on my person anywhere its legal to do so----just my thoughts gig out

  39. Engine swap is for those who don't have the skills to keep their 2.6 running well enough to not blow up. What you need for reliability is more than just correct parts but the ability and knowledge to do the required maintenance, build/install the engine and components correctly, and especially a proper tune. Quite a few members have done this very well, others were missing parts of the equation and blamed the car. -Robert
