If you live in the Tampa Bay area. Street Warz will be held this Saturday at Showtime dragstrip http://showtimedragstrip.us/
I will be there racing my truck. Lets see if I can get in the mid 9's this time.
This truck has been amazing. Very low maintenance and a lot of fun both on and off the track. I have just turned 124 k on it and the repairs have been minimal.
- Engine was stuttering under power - bad coil on cylinder 5
- Squeak from the drive train - Bad u joint on the drive shaft
So after 124k the clutch has finally started to slip. So..... Great time to upgrade. I ordered the organic clutch from Jim Wolf Technology and low mass flywheel :)

So I got rear ended. Luckily I was looking at my rear view mirror and was able to pull out of the way before getting hit full force. The Altima behind me was not as lucky and was hit hard. The bumper of the truck that hit it was sitting next to her back seat.
The truck is ok as the hitch took...
