Other wise the only other track is a dirt track up by the airport.
I went to the autocrosses there too, but Rogersville is the one i was thinking of... I must have been confused thinking it was south... i just remember after a Santa Car Cruise toy benefit thing at the Rogersville drag strip, we ended up going to Springfield, and came up from south of springfield on that main highway that goes by springfield and intersects 44. Sorry... My mind is AWESOME at deleting information that i dont use frequently. lmao Ive forgotten so many town names, and roads and stuff.

Lol na its kinda south, just didn't know if you were talking about the autocross or drags. Yeah been out there a few times to watch but never really had any desire to drag race. Fun to watch though.

Nice build. I like the way the car looks.

I wish I had an NB when I see it.

Idk, my roommate received it from usps when I was at work, he may have moved the paper around to see if it was damaged but the box was definitely rough lol.

The trubo flange sits at a slightly inward angle which may mean my downpipe may hit my trans, but the flange also sits about an inch farther away from the head so we'll see.

Also I bought an injector seal kit from 300zx which should be here today so hopefully I can get those going after the manifold install. My last attempt at installing/tuning didn't go well though so we'll see.

It's been a very long time but she may be ready for higher than wastegate pressure soon lol
