aluminum bolt together cage...worthless
huge turbo on a motor that barely runs, and no water line hooked up - FAIL
5spd, really? why bother???
oh and the air setup is a dual paddle single gauge dual needle setup...come on, you have $5k worth of chrome and a $5k set of wheels on the car and you cant pony up and get a digital management setup....
oh and the attempt at hardlines on the brakes....
Shame there's all that potential in the bay and the car isn't/can't even be driven. I just don't see the point in building a car with insane amounts of power and then just letting it idle on/off the trailer
And the 20 people wearing tshirts for the car was really cheesy. I understand everyone being excited but come on...

bags and wheels = build thread

get your facts straight...kid
I'm just wondering, does a show only car really need to run? It's only purpose is to look pretty...
As far as top dawg goes. I don't think shop cars should be judged in a show that built around enthusiasts. I'm not saying they can't be there, it's just not fair to the guys that build their own cars.
Joe def. was a well deserved win. And I have a feeling the judges take notice that he has built effort into that car for years and he only continues to make it better. You could walk around Joe's car 20 times and still probably miss the smallest detail.
lifes not fair, and the show isnt about enthusiasts any more either. its about toolboxes and who can get drunk and do something stupid, and judging by a lot of these threads, about imports.
shop built or not. enthusiast or short term scenester making a splash. a nice car is a nice car. thats why the show field exists. top dawg is best of the best (yes, open to debate every year, i understand...) but if its money and time thrown at the car, then so be it. if you dont have the money or the time to get a car into the top, get it in the show field and compete there. thats why theres so many classes for so many cars. you cant compare the two different builds really.
It works both ways, but in the end one would think the O2M swap would be worth it if you're going to go 'all the way'.
Got your email dude bud.
