Well, sold my cf whaletail to Daniel this evening at the kemah show. Gave him a sweet deal. So pretty soon we will be seeing something new on his car :) This sale also puts me close to my new SVT front brake kit :)

Cool comic Justin.


Also Justin can you post up a pic of the voltage tester you use for car stuff and the wire crimper/stripper tool you use that seems.to work well. Thanks.

Did I see wire crimper mentioned? ..... hmmm :D


On the other note:

Blue B!tch had a bad mood today..... died on me when entering the freeway.

So I left work around midnight, get into my car, start it up, everything is ok, lights on, a/c on, so here we go >> first gear strong, second gear strong, at that point I was close to STOP sign by the freeway entrance so I press the clutch, aaaand..... here it died.

I'm trying to figure out what it was, it seemed the way when you forget to depress the clutch while coming to a Stop and engine dies, BUT it was depressed.

Anyway I turned off a/c, lights, I set it in neutral and try to start it, cranked for full 5 seconds but got no ignition.... and five full seconds is kinda long time if you look at the clock

popped hood, got out to have a look, everything seems ok, checked battery terminals, looked in the exhaust tube to see if some kids didn't decide it would be funny to clog it with some dead frog or something, but everything 'seemed' to be ok,

ok, back to the car, i try to start it, so I hear starter works, it;s trying to crank, but no ignition, again... but this time at 5th full second it kinda made an attempt, so i kept key turned and at about 7th full second got the ignition, motor started, yay \o/

for a while i was driving on the side of the freeway, and every time I was about to stop I was turning off the a/c and low beams, and when stopped pushing gas to keep it at around 1300 rpm,

it seemed fine so I went back on freeway and made it back home

on the driveway I turned car off, and started again, and repeated 5 times, - all good, so went for a short check around the block, car was behaving good, it seemed to be missing some power in first gear but it may be as well just me in 'problem spotting' mode exaggerating a bit, otherwise all ok, so came back to my driveway, turned it off, and started it again with all the lights and a/c on - all went good, no problems.



so now I'm puzzled, - why did it die out there, and had problems to start again

I know you guys weren't there to see, and there is a little information i;m presenting , but any ideas are welcome
