that was a really good writeup. Car has progressed really well along the way so if possible, keep chipping away at it as opposed to selling it. And, yea definitely drive the snot out of it in the meantime.

It will get some continued love as its cheaper to play with than anything else I would want to do. Also, all the room is spoiling me vs usual 4th gen and modern car designs.

I will play with the tune a little more granted its pretty good right now. I want to adjust shift points a couple hundred rpm and apply the Holley adjusted learning to the base tune so that's closer. AFRs look good etc.

is it wrong all I see in this pic is a black TA with 30+ year old BFGs on it? LOL



I like those turbo wheels, they scream out for RWL tires though. a modern version of those wheels would be nice.

You'll have to ask Larry on that one. Original cars will be original.

I also don't hate the turbo wheels and agree on a modern rendition would be pretty cool. Might look odd with it upsized and a shorter sidewall tire though.

While I value open and constructive dialogue, I must express my disappointment with the tone and content of your message.

I believe in fostering a respectful and productive environment for communication, and it is important to me that we treat one another with courtesy and professionalism. Unfortunately, your tone came across as aggressive and threatening, which is neither necessary nor conducive to a healthy exchange of ideas.

It is essential for us to maintain a level of mutual respect and understanding when engaging in conversations, even when we may disagree. It allows us to better comprehend each other's perspectives and work towards finding common ground or a resolution.

Moreover, I found the threatening nature of your message deeply concerning. It is crucial to remember that words have a profound impact on others, and it is our responsibility to use them wisely. Threatening language creates an atmosphere of fear and hostility, inhibiting any meaningful discourse.

Moving forward, I kindly request that we maintain a more respectful and considerate tone in our communication. By doing so, we can establish a more productive and collaborative environment that fosters understanding and cooperation.

If you have any concerns or issues that you would like to discuss further, I encourage you to approach me with an open mind and a willingness to find a mutually beneficial solution.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I believe that through respectful and constructive dialogue, we can resolve any differences and cultivate a more positive relationship.

Respectfully - Skynet

It's okay for me to talk about my job, as long as I'm not specific. I am the Sergeant of a three-man Rapid Tactical Force at one of America's largest indoor retail shopping areas. Although there are typically between fifteen and twenty normal security officers working the beat there, we decided a while ago that it would be best to have a specilized force for violent individuals. We use modified electric vehicles and can be anywhere on a given floor within eight and a half minutes.

Naturally, the regular security people are unarmed. We "RTFers", by arrangement with the local police, carry high-strength OC spray and batons. If we have a full tactical alert and permission from the local LEOs we also have a Mossberg 500 with less-lethal rounds and two K-frame Smith .38s loaded with 158gr. LRN.

I am writing a proposal to replace our current Mossberg/Smith armament with the following:

3 MP5K-PDW with red-dot sights;

2 G36 rifles using SS109 rounds;

3 Glock practical tacticles in .357 Sig

1 PSG-1 using Fed Gold Medal .308

1 Starlight scope for the PSG-1 in case we lose power in the building.

3 Glock 27 backup guns

3 Kahr P-9 holdouts

I think this would make us capable of facing nearly any situation. I'll let you know what the management says!!!

"Who’s joe?" a distant voice asks.

Instantly everyone nearby hears the sound of 1,000s of bricks rapidly shuffling towards his location.

The earth itself seemed to cry out in agony, until finally the ground itself split open and a horrific creature crawled from the ground, covered in mucus and tar.

”Joe Momma…” the creature whispered.

The man cried out in pain as he disintegrated into dust, and the whole world fell silent in fear.

"I did a little trolling." the wretched creature remarked before burrowing back into the earth.

To answer that, we need to understand what "Winning" means to BLS.

Is winning being faster than everyone? Or is winning having the most fun?

Either way, we can safely say, he will not win.
