  1. Honey Badger's Completely Off-the-Rails Build and Adventure Thread

    No worries. I get the question a lot and it's a good one. If I were to start all over knowing that the end goal was race car, I'd buy a wrecked car and do a CPC conversion and then follow the same path I'm on now--focusing on engine reliability (CPC and drysump), safety (cage, fire suppression...
  2. Honey Badger's Completely Off-the-Rails Build and Adventure Thread

    Okay - so back to car stuff. I'm in the process of evaluating a couple things, ordering a couple more things, and openly exploring others. First up, roll cage. I haven't completed my order yet, but we're only a couple weeks away. I've decided to go with the TrackSpec cage. It's modeled after...
  3. Honey Badger's Completely Off-the-Rails Build and Adventure Thread

    Agreed. The trucks today are so good.
  4. Jerico/GForce trans: crazy or interesting?

    Okay - I've had some interesting convos with folks in the last 40 hours that give more insight to this potential swap. Looks like the Gforce GSR is the top choice since it's a top-mount shifter. The cheaper/older Jerico/MVEs, etc. are typically side mounts and they're too wide for the trans...
  5. Honey Badger's Completely Off-the-Rails Build and Adventure Thread

    That would've been hard since my engine is currently spread across my garage :) Next year I'll be there for sure!
  6. Jerico/GForce trans: crazy or interesting?

    Alright ladies and gents - got another one for ya'. I was talking to an older gentlemen about road racing a little bit ago and I mented that I've started to look into a trans swap for my GT350 (switching to cross plane). He asked if I had explored dropping in a Jerico/GForce 4 speed since I...
  7. GT350 low-speed corner track question

    This question warrants the-always-favorite "it depends" answer. Re: advanced drivers, yes, sometimes more advanced drivers will drop a gear to stay in the higher RPMs and get better drive. And as @EFI said, it's dependent on traction amongst many other things. In practice, it really does...
  8. Honey Badger's Completely Off-the-Rails Build and Adventure Thread

    On a serious note, I had an F450 on order, but ended up with the Dodge for a couple reasons: 1. Ford ordered early Dec - still no delivery estimate, continued delays, etc. Dodge was ordered end of Jan and showed up this week. 2. Best deal on a Ford I could find was 1k off MSRP. This truck was...
  9. Honey Badger's Completely Off-the-Rails Build and Adventure Thread

    New tow pig is in! It’s ridiculous and I love it. Now just waiting on the new trailer.
  10. Antigravity ATX-20-HD

    Advertising on someone's personal thread is poor taste, IMHO.
  11. First 3 track days... What's next?

    Agree with the above. Greasy tires don't mean much other than you need to work on technique. Like @pilotgore, I've opened quite a few people's eyes on what better technique can do with tires. My rule of thumb is you don't need more grippy tires until you're 4 wheel drifting everywhere (as in, a...
  12. Part number for just the starter solenoid?

    I'm more convinced than ever this is a problem with the starter design. The wires "float" inside the housing and the Voodoo vibrations fray them until they fail. I think this is a wear item with the FPC. The Powermaster XS starter I ran is A LOT more robust, but I don't have enough FPC data to...
  13. Let's talk trailers...anyone with a custom ATC/inTech?

    A bit apples and oranges in a few ways. Mine's not a stacker - only single level. But outside of that, the Intechs are true motorsports trailers - inside and out. Everything is customizable and oriented for motorsports use. The trailer I ordered is actually more similar to a LQ horse trailer...
  14. Let's talk trailers...anyone with a custom ATC/inTech?

    I know. Feels a bit dirty, right?
  15. Are my Cup2s toast?

    I have a couple friends that roll up with (4) tires in the trunk and back seats :)
  16. Are my Cup2s toast?

    Going a bit against the grain here - if those are your only tires (i.e. you're driving them to/from the track), I'd toss them. If trailered, sure you have more time. Definitely a day, likely more. But this is not a chance I'd take if they were my only tires. Not worth losing the track time. And...
  17. Let's talk trailers...anyone with a custom ATC/inTech?

    My buddy advocated hard for a stacker - but for some reason he didn't want to pony up to help pay for it. Ha! Truck will be a Ram 3500 HO *gasps* I had an F450 on order, but the delays and prices were killing me. The ram was built in 8 weeks and is just going through shipping. The Ford is 2...
  18. Let's talk trailers...anyone with a custom ATC/inTech?

    Well, my trailer is nearing production. Just had final sign-off on the engineering drawings. Beginning to wonder if 50ft is overkill, too late now. Ha :crackup: This will be the most ridiculous thing to take to the track when all it is doing is hauling a Miata. HA!
