VLOG3 and a Shake Down Run! AAAWWW YEAH!

I don’t really have a schedule for updating the blog, but I’ll try to do at least one a week. Please forgive any delays in posting, the racing season is picking up and so is work as an IT Consultant so I’m strung between two lines, LOL!  But enough about that!

The fun stuff. Got the car back up and running and she looks SOOOOOO awesome! Can’t wait to get to her first drift event. I’ve had a lot go on so I’m just gonna let the pictures and videos do the talking. We’ve gotten a lot done, new aero, cage welded down and reinforced, engine put back together and a shake down run! WHAT?! Yeah . . .I said it!

So let’s see these pics!

 

We saw the cage when it was mocked up, now it’s finalized. Next up is to put an SCCA Brace in it, that will happen before our first event.

This is during the shake down run. The valve cover gasket wasn’t fitted properly (it was too large) so we had to modify it and seal it with gasket maker. Worked WONDERS! Photo Credit to Brandon Andrews.

This is how she currently sits. I love it! The wing and tow hook may not be for everyone, but I enjoy it. And it will be SO MUCH FUN at the track!

Here’s a cool shot from the mountain run! We see most of the “team” lined up. I put “team” in quotes because we’re anything but, we’re just a group of guys who likes to have fun! Respect for ourselves and respect for one another, that’s the code we live by! That’s the code we drive by!

 

 

 

 

I also had the change to get a VLOG up. So here’s VLOG 3, explaining the final steps on getting the car running and the body modifications setup. As always, the video will explain everything!

I also got some video from my solo Shake Down run this past Sunday. The video below will show you the fun (and mistakes) that were had. It took some getting used to and the chassis is now more rigid that the suspension wants to deal with. So that’s a thing I’ll have to look into with my suspension setup. It’ll get all dialed in, piece by piece. I’m not gonna rush it.

At any rate . . . on with the video!

It’s been a LONG WHILE! Updates, Touge Runs, MORE!

Sooooo . . .yush . . .it’s been a while

A long while 😦

I’m very VERY sorry that I’ve been away so long, there’s been a lot of crap going on in my life that has kinda taken me away from the game. But, I’ll try to be more diligent and post more things up here so that people can get a sense for what’s going on with Derpy once again.

Well, the shot version is, I moved to NY for a bit, decided that wasn’t going to work, so now I’m back in Georgia, LOL! Sweet Georgia! Much better here than NY, for a multitude of reasons. But I’m considerably happier now.

So let’s just jump to the present. A group of buddies and I do these Monthly Mountain Runs that are really fun. We’ve closed the group now but we will start to open it up once the kinks and bugs are worked out of the system. I’ll post some pictures from that below.

Derpy had some issues with oil and boost, all have been resolved and she’s running better than ever now. Lots of responsive power and tons of peppy tail-happy handling that we love so much about her. She’s a good girl and I plan on keeping her that way.

Ummm, trying to think of anything else IMPORTANT! Umm, not really much going on. The mountain runs have been a blast, getting her fixed and going on a few shakedown runs has been awesome. But that’s really it!

OH! I plan on driving her up to New Jersey for a show. So stay tuned for THAT! It’ll be amazing!

AAANY WAY!

Such a fun FUN car! I can’t wait to get back out there! Our next run is on the 27th of October! I hope to see some of you out there for one of these!

Livery installed, Derpy Hooves is OFFICIALLY the coolest car in Equestria!

So, the livery installed and I’ve had a chance to take Derpy to a drift event. The persons in charge of printing, cutting and installing the livery are the good folks at Performance Signs and Designs. <— Click there to check them out on Facebook. Brent Knott and Alexandria Bingham are great people to know and will quickly become good friends of yours. Their professionalism and courtesy are second to none and they have UNBEATABLE prices! I’m not just saying that, I really do mean that you can shop around for days, weeks, months or even years and you won’t be able to beat the prices they have.  So check them out, tell them David Adams sent you and they’ll give you some special pricing!

 

Once again, the Performance Signs and Designs Facebook is located at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Performance-Signs-Designs/355164184577728

Their Phone Number to call them is: (386) 438-9012.

Let them know I sent you! ❤

At the event, it was SOOOO COLD but we had so much fun that you literally forgot how cold it was (low 25, high 50). It really gave me a chance to shake down the car and to show off how the Brony Community gets down when we decide to get it sideways. Derpy was a big hit, everyone loved her so much. I can’t believe how much fun it was to shake hands with almost everyone at that event and to get so many people wondering what this was about. I probably converted a few people over to the Derp-side! LOL!
Anyway, enough babble, on to pics and a teaser vid of some drifting!
