  1. It's been a minute. I don't recall the last time I browsed here, I did lurk when I heard of Shelby's passing. Last week I came across a box of 86 sensors he sent to me, and I seeing his name on that address brought a lot of memories back. My Starion has been hard parked for about 4 years, the head cracked on me. I didn't overheat it, but the repair on a previous crack failed. With the help of my friend, I got a replacement used head (from @IntercooledFlatty) installed and she is up and running again. Not in the greatest condition, but the important part is it's driveable. Getting back into this car is like coming home after a long trip abroad. First pic of the first test drive in many many years: Glad to see all the familiar names, like seeing old faces at a reunion. -Robert
  2. "We need more mods..." http://www.26liter.us/wp-content/gallery/rare-stararri/starrari030.jpg http://www.26liter.us/wp-content/gallery/rare-stararri/starrari031.jpg http://www.26liter.us/wp-content/gallery/rare-stararri/P8170162.JPG http://www.26liter.us/wp-content/gallery/rare-stararri/P8170161.JPG Done. -Robert
  3. The GM AIT's spec 3.457k ohms at 20c, factory spec 2.45k ohms at 20c... so it's not "just a couple of degrees off." That's besides the point though, as the secondary AIT you're talking about won't affect the car enough to really notice. The first one, in the MAS, however, will. -Robert
  4. The oil pan is definitely not protected. The front of mine is scraped up, and so was the one I replaced it with. Also have some good scrapes in the sway bar. When I hit an unmarked raised section of the road, the crossmember was bent back into the oil pan, puncturing the pan from the steering stops. Nothing else was damaged and I drove back home 1/2 mile or so, leaking oil. On the cannonball run I went on months ago, there was a section with poorly paved road and the Ferrari I was chasing was scraping more than my car was. I spoke to the owner recently and he said they come with skid plates, fortunately haha. I've been working on one myself, maybe I'll have it ready in time for summer. I haven't damaged the airdam though, and it scrapes all the time. -Robert
  5. Good news to hear that you're getting better Shelby!! -Robert
  6. Looking good. I need to make some of those. -Robert
  7. Ooops, wasn't trying to drag anyone into this pointless BS lol. Some of us, including myself, take the internet a bit too seriously from time to time. Thanks for taking the time to reply without the Fbombs and such, Mark. We did get along at some point, I remember this, and chatting for hours. What I don't remember is what happened exactly to make it go awry, but I'd rather not rehash that if anyone does remember. As harsh as this may sound, it's not important anymore. I only posted to respond to the thread asking where I had gone, correct the actual reasons for my absence, and put forth an olive branch hoping the drama stops here. (Yes everyone, I am aware of the downfalls in making this thread, but am positive the outcome will benefit us... or else lol) We don't need to do this to each other, adding useless drama and stress into each other's lives. I'm sure everyone else is tired of it too. It may never go back to the way it was, but we can make it better if we try. Time away really puts things in perspective, if you feel you need it, that's great. I take no gratification in being responsible for anyone leaving. and hope you come back soon. -Robert
  8. Long wooden planks, 2x6's supported underneath. I need 2x4's just to lift mine lol. -Robert
  9. Drove it, in the pouring rain lol... But I don't mind the rain. I've been wanting a shot with tree blossoms, and snapped this one today with my cell phone. -Robert
  10. Now that's what I'd call a target rich environment... -Robert
  11. SOTTY, the man himself. If any thread deserves pancake bunny, it would definitely be this one. We just need to find a picture of pancake bunny driving a golf cart next to the pool and it will be perfect. -Robert
  12. Chad!! Woah what are you sellin'?! No, 'mad. Thanks!! Hello Mr. Brown, I hope you are doing well. Edde, it's good to see you back here. "Back from the dead". I would say a lot of us here are unbalanced to some degree, just some more than others lol. Britt... nobody ever said I was smart LOL... the slacker part you are correct about though. I do have more pics, and even a video... I'll have to stop dragging around and post them up. Hey Tim, good to hear from you. Yeah their response was definitely skewed lol. Meeting you and Sam at Mesquite 11 was definitely fun... too many shenanigans to remember LOL. -Robert
  13. Lol... I see you already forgot what you posted last week. Just let it go. -Robert
