Aidan, Sean . . . you know there's this thing called "PM's"? Or, you could exchange cell numbers and text each other. You could even move next door to each other, build a tall privacy fence and then talk through the fence. That would be cool.

Just sayin'.

In my defense, up until yesterday, my build was on task.

Can we just have our own section? subforum? Well call it "The Aidan and Sean show"

<p>I do have some actual build related stuff.</p><p>I keep flip flopping back and forth on what I want to do with the car. And I think I finally came to a decision.</p><p>I'm not going to build the motor for at least the next year. I have a whole list of things to do before I crank it up to allofit, including improving my driving.</p><p>But I don't want to spend money on parts to get halfway in the meantime. I.E. I'm trying to swap my dw200 for a 300.</p><p>Going to get traction control up and running</p><p>Flex fuel figured out.</p><p>New brakes.</p><p>Etc, etc.</p><p>This gives me a whole **** ton of stuff to do, while also moving towards where I want the build to be in a few years.</p><p>So sadly, no forged motor yet (knock on wood), but a whole bunch of little things that I hope will help you guys with your bigger power builds.</p>

Default Community build thread...Aidan occasionally does the things

What's the latest plan for brakes, or are we still in limbo?

<p>Waiting on EO2K&nbsp;to get some clearance numbers. Then move along with it. Maybe go in with deezums on a set of calipers/rotors for development. You have x9s and i have x8s. I would like to get them to fit in both. Maybe have a caliper/rotor each and just ship brackets back and forth?</p>

I've had time to do nothing since we last spoke a bout this. I'll see if I can do it before the weekend.
