No Challengerfest for me :(

No Challengerfest for me :(
Well boys and girls....I'm out for CF5 for sure now. After picking up my car last week from BFNY, I brought it back to get the exhaust adjusted as it was a little too tight, vibrating a little bit, and making noise on bumps and such. Well, after Erik adjusted a few things, we uncovered a new sound. Pulled the drain plug on the trans and yep -- metal in the fluid. The trans had less than 100 miles on it and none of my patented launches . Simply driving from BFNY to my house and back. Needless to say, I'm bummed. Nothing anyone did wrong other than the trans shop that rebuilt it. It will get addressed in short order, just not in time for CF5.

If there was a silver lining, I was going to bust ass early next week as I just sold my old house (thank god) and need to get my stuff out of there, so now I will have time to get that done with out killing myself. Also, got to meet Bill (bluebyubill) who was a nice guy and will have a wild 6spd ride at CF5.

So....anyone want to buy the 6speed they are sending back fixed? maybe it is time to eat a burrito and go fast.

nope....extra easy ride home. I'm sure the problem was there from the get go, it was masked by the other sounds.

investigating automatics.....being broke sucks and I have had enough of it.

and no phil I'm not selling you the car for $5,000 and a goat Smile
