YES IT IS!! It was so nice to just sit around, eat cheap hot dogs and enjoy the company of fellow car guys. The scenery around the courthouse in Shelbyville is really cool. It gives the cruise in an old time vibe.
My AAD stuff showed up today. My BMR cradle lockouts shipped today. I haven't heard a word about my Bwoody sway bar links but they aren't really a must before heading under the car to install the other components.
So.. I suppose I know what I'm doing Saturday. 🙃
I tackled the AAD and BMR stuff this afternoon. It wasn't bad at all.
Some of the engineering in these cars will make you scratch your
head but I suppose that's always the case with newer cars.
From the time I backed it in the shop until I drove it back out was
4 hours and fifteen minutes. I did it by myself other than my wife
helped me remove and reinstall the exhaust. I saw no need to take
pics since the process looked just like Speedy's video except the
car's a different color.. and my shop has a few more miles on it than
It clearly will need an alignment. I didn't have particularly good witness
marks to reset the cradle back into and it drives as though it's not
square in the car by a bit. However, I got on it pretty hard and - like
everyone says - it was much smoother and a lot less likely to shake
the tires. I'm looking forward to getting it to the track soon and seeing
how it acts. So far I've been 1.47 60' at Music City and I still have the
hard 1-2 shift that rattles the tires pretty hard. I'm hoping for a slightly
better 60' and less "unnecessary activity" in the rear end on the 1-2 shift.
Hopefully we'll find out soon..
