Derpy Needs YOUR Help! Send Your Suggestions! Mounting a Permanent Camera!

So, I’m thinking about giving Derpy Hooves a permanent camera for capturing motorsports events. I’m just not sure where to mount it. This is where all of you come in handy. Let me know in the comments section where you think I should mount the camera.  As always, BE CREATIVE! ^_^ I would LOVE some inspirational ideas!

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!

Derpy and I In The Mountains Enjoying Friends

It’s nearly impossible to describe how awesome it feels to have good friends in your life. My friends, Steven and Tyrus, went out of their way to show me a good time this day. Consequently, Derpy found herself two new friends that day as well!  Absolutely nothing better than having fun with friends that you care about in a manner that you find most amazing! At any rate, on to the video.

New Goodies Purchased and Installed!

Filed under: The Build — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — D.Adams Drift @ 6:23 pm

Hey there everyone! Just doing a quick update to show you all some of the new parts picked up and installed

 

First up is the meat of the meal. The boost controller. Running stock boost still, we haven’t installed the gauges yet and I want to make sure that I’m not running too lean or too much boost. I can’t wait until Tyler stops by to help us out with that!

Next up comes the headlight and foglight setup that we’ve done. The first image is the headlights in the box . . .the foglights were taken out and laminexed to get the yellow finish.

A comment on the Facebook page was “Somebody’s got jaundice!”. LOL! I love it! That’s funny! But yes, I am truly digging the setup, I can’t wait to get more parts installed!

 

Check out Derpy’s Facebook page, here!

Derpy is definitely best pony and best car!

Thanks all!

Get that cat off my turbo!

Filed under: The Build — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , — D.Adams Drift @ 7:57 pm

WOW! I have nothing to say but WOW! So I have several friends and two of those friends are mechanics. One is my personal mechanic that I have used forever and the other is a friend that works as a BMW tech for a dealership. Today, our venture was to remove the catalytic converter from my exhaust system (primary not pre-cat) and see what that does.

 

I have a few pictures from that!

 

 

Here’s Juan and Terry getting ready to weld after cutting out the old cat.

 

And there’s the test pipe they’ve welded in in place of the catalytic converter! So awesome!  It’s not much louder than it was as the TSi’s have a pretty growly and gnarly sound anyway but it’s much . . .MUCH quicker through the gears! Natural Aspiration has NOTHING on the affects of turbocharged modifications. This car is seriously quick now, and it’s probably just over the stock feeling! I say that because the car never really “wow’d” me until now. When I first drove it, it felt slow and it felt slow as I continued to drive it. Both of my mechanics say that it’s most likely due to a clogged catalytic converter (which I didn’t even know could happen) and it behaved like an exhaust plug literally suffocating the car. A great guy I met on the StarquestClub Forums also helped to come to this realization and has given me some AWESOME tips and tricks for making this a wicked drifter!

 

I can’t wait!
