Default What can I say? Another fantastic Goodfellas experience

long story short...took the GTP to the guys to swap out my old trans for a TK trans. along the way, they discovered various exhaust and boost leaks. took the time to clean everything up and even fixed my rear manifold. also installed my control arms while it was there.

picked the car up tonight. all my leaks are gone, car feels fantastic. total sleeper now. silent as can be while idling and cruising. my manifold leak was definitely hurting me. power delivery is much smoother and the car feels far healthier after being w/ them for a week.

cant say enough good things about these guys. thanks again

Win, Mook vs the entire DDR team, this way the 2hrs of track prep can be done by his team of emotional mechanics. Mook takes the hit for bragging rights to your 120mph wheel spinning, 8month build "race-car" everyone hears so much about. Lock that shit in.

And FWIW, Mooks car will be on a 17" street tire, no track prep, full weight, and pump gas.

10sec swingin hard.

Seems Goodfellas did a trans faster then cya racing.

HK would get his shit pushed in. I think a better race would be 10sec vs mook.

yeah DDR can't hang with any of our cars. we are all still SC, other than Kevin's car which is ungodly slow for what it is.

That is correct, I have revoked my faith in this car until further notice. It has nothing but problems, which need to be addressed.

I was trying to say that none of the DDR cars can hang... the sentence needed some punctuation.

and yeah, we have slow ass shit.
