    Not that I'm aware of. If the transmission was hurt again, I may say the hell with it and do a t56 swap next time, lol.

    I believe I already acquired, 99% of what was needed for in 2015. Now I need time on my side for 3 machines being built/updated at once.

If this turns into a retirement project, I'm definitely not taking it off the table.

    There have apparently been some advancements in my medication that might make ankle replacement a possibility in the future too. I'm going in to see a speciallist about it in the spring. If I get to the point where it's more fun than painful to daily drive a standard again, I may end up doing it eventually, whether it needs done or not.

    T56 would be awesome. Hard to beat an auto in the 1/4, but there is more of a fun factor with a 6 speed.

    Autos are gay... Plain and simple. When you live in an area with great roads for driving I don't understand why setting a car for drag racing would ever cross someone's mind.

    Hard to tell. I want mine to be able to go to a 1/4 track a few times a year and not get embarrassed, but that's about as far as it goes. I would like to go to summit point this summer and play some. It would be nice if we could get an auto x event somewhere close.

    I'd like to go to Summit Point too.... Driving around cones in a parking lot never really excited me much

    I thought the same thing, but after you try it, it's actually a lot of fun. I guess part of it is the competition to be faster than the other people...lol

    Autox is more of a mini car sport. I still had a lot of fun doing it but wasn't very competitive in a track built for a Prius.

    My 2015 list is rather long, but a torque converter is on top of the list.

    It just depends on how the track is constructed. Some favor smaller cars, some favor higher hp cars.

    It would be hard to build a track for high hp cars in a parking lot. That said, it is still fun.

    Back when they were able to do them at the airport, the tracks were set up alot better for most of our type of vehicles. I think Travis was moving faster in reverse in Elkins, than I was ever able to get up to at Belle, lol.

    The Belle lot is certainly not for a high hp car or truck.

    The one at Belle was a drag strip compared to the one at the high school in Fairmont, lol.

    The one at the Elkins airport I thought was pretty good. I think that was my best run when I ended up backwards...lol I have never been to any in Belle, or in Fairmont.

    My truck is mostly just your casual garage fill. It really hasn't got much that it does really well.

    I dunno Kenny. If you wouldn't be scared of getting a little rubber on your wells, I bet it would do a pretty damn good burnout, lol.

    I need front tires for the vette, and a set of good coilovers, and probably sway bars.

    trans am needs a baby cam stall, and some injectors. ooh, and the rear end fixed.

    I'd love to get the WS6 back on the road... we'll see what happens as the year progresses I'm putting more effort into shooting in 2015 so that will take up some time and more importantly money, hopefully by 2016 it will be bringing in some money!
    2001 Corvette - Heads, Cam, Intake, Full exhaust, Hotchkiss Swaybars, z06 brake ducts, SS brake pistons & Lines Etc. Lowered & Murdered out.
    2000 Trans AM WS6 - Forged Motor APS Twin Turbo Kit. Full Suspension & C5 brakes.... in pieces currently
    1998 Trans AM STS Turbo
    1997 Jeep Cherokee - when you just gotta go places other things won't take you.
    1995 Mercury Grand Marquis - ugly but comfortable
