whoops. I got about 1 mile from my house and car just shut off. I looked behind me and saw a trail of fluid. Put my hand in it and it was black, so my heart sank. I smelled it and it was def fuel. Checked oil, was perfectly fine. Car still cranked. I then heard gushing lol. Checked under car saw a spot. Called Larry for an idea he said "drivers front of rear? check fuel filter". sure enough, line was popped off the filter . White clip was still on the filter. I shoved it back on and it obviously fired right up. Drove it home... hopefully will be able to make it to Larrys

Ebrake cable needs to be secured better
Check the fuel filter quick disconnect

Rear diff fluid change
Dial in idle - doesn't like parking lot maneuvers.

yeah, that must be bmr (a lot of folks don't think much of them). Sam works with UMI on a lot of stuff.

I saw a parts rundown on Sams 4th gen. The one that none of us can catch on an autocross. IIRC he might have won a national championship in that car. I've watched him run past some high dollar stuff. Anyway, I don't think he has SFCs on them. Also might be a hardtop car, I forget.

Feather-light suspension, Konis just couldn't hold. I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors.

Yep his car is insanely setup. He thinks SFCs are not needed if all your suspension is refreshed. he said if SFCs helped you, your car has bad bushings, shocks, springs, etc.

Car is back after another bunch of money thrown at it. Runs good now and is really fun over 4500rpm.

Back in the garage to wait till spring. Definitely gotta upgrade the brakes.

Still have to do brakes. Idle needs adjusting a bunch. Good otherwise
