Watched Fast and the Furious for the first time in years last night. It was even better since I actually somewhat understand what they're doing to the cars now. Anyways, can't drive worth crap right now. If you see a red svt driving like it's street racing, that's me!:)

yeah it can be intense at times. Especially when I have to report all the mistakes they are making with the budget and stuff like that. And I'm also surrounded by people of questionable inteligence.

man F&F was fun when i was a kid but the older I got and the further in the scene i got i realized how much of joke it was. lol you have to read the original article that inspirired the movie. it was about a street racer in LA. i think the artile was something like Racer X or Driver X.

Do you peel out because of riding the clutch?

i know most svt's tend to bog down about 800 rpm from a stop.. not always. just release depends on the balance of clutch and gas.
i always start my roll slowly then get on the gas when i want to launch.
i will try to give ya some pointers on sunday.

yeah, i kind of deal with some of the same stuff and definitely some "questionable intelligence" people here.. like 85% of the people i work with. lol


some of the database has been wrong since the 50s.. and nobody has noticed it until this project.. when i came up with the "process" to do the whole thing.. its been used by a few different companies.. which is cool.. but i don't get credit for it.
