    Yup, hit a decent sized rock.
    Oddly, weather was nice until my rim broke. Then it hailed, rained and even snowed a little. Shortly after I was back on the road, it was nice again :shrug:

    I need a TSW Sochi in gunmetal and mirror cut face for a 275/35 20 tire. (20x10 I think).

    Can you hook me up fast? Need it installed by Thanksgiving. PM me please. Better yet, text me, you have my number

    It was a great run. Great idea, klumpkat.

    I've had my car 1 month and that was a great opportunity to wring it out. I was a bit concerned about the P-Zeros but they hung in there. The brakes were good and the pickup was great, and the handing through the turns was nice.

    I did run over a huge rock pulling onto the road. I will have to check this morning.

    Thanks to all for a super day! We had 50+ Mustangs.

    Angeles Crest Curse

    I think this run is cursed.

    I shredded my serpentine belt yesterday on the cruise. Not sure if it was a rock that got up in there (Didn't have my belly pan on) or just high RPM's. I updated my Whipple tune the day before and bumped the rev limiter up since I did the OPG, Crank Sprocket and ATI damper. I felt the belt go at about 7,500 RPM's as I shifted gears. At first I thought I missed a gear and went from 3rd to 6th because power was waaay down.

    Long story short, went back into town to get a new belt from Oreilly's using the part number off the old belt. Hour later and back at the car..... They gave me the wrong belt (too small) :frusty:. Called tow, waited hour and half they never showed. Called back they said visibility was to bad and roads were slick no companies wanted to come up. My brother in-law ended up driving out from San Diego and picked up a spare belt from @SC_Ruby :headbang: and I finally got it installed and headed down the mountain. With all the rain the roads were a disaster by midnight with rocks everywhere it was like some kind of video game weaving and swerving to avoid rocks, some as big as a foot and a half. Even had one large ball of mud and rocks hit the road about 2 feet in front of me and dirt and mud showered my hood like a mortar round exploding when it hit the pavement.

    Finally got home about 2am with no further incidents... ZZzzzzzz.

    I did have a great time up until my Belt let go.

    Holy crap guys :eyebulge: Sorry to hear about everything that happened. It does look like it was a great turnout though.

    Damn! Glad it's all fixed, though.
    My predicament right now is that my rim appears to be discontinued :(

    I was thinking about after I saw your post and I was driving through the rocky road obstacle course. Winder if N4Speed sells just a single Rim if that were to happen to me. Is the rim repairable?

    I know there are companies out there that can fix them. San Diego has some. Might be an alternative if the rim is discontinued.

    Paul and I checked around to no avail. As soon as I leave work there's a repair guy downtown San Diego who is staying open for me. I'm going to hustle down there and see what he says :shrug:

    I would imagine Paul would sell one rim.
