CALLING ALL ARTISTS! Derpy Needs YOU!

Help Complete Derpy’s Livery!

 

 

 

Hey there everyone and HELLO EVERYPONY!

 

Derpy and I need your help in finishing her racing livery! Basically we would like a clean design that’s clean and flows with the rest of her livery. I’ve already heard some cool suggestions on Derpy’s facebook page

But now I’d LOVE to hear from each of you! What do you think should happen? Submit your ideas to me on my facebook page or here in the comments and if we choose your design or idea you’ll see it on the car at the next drift event! We may even try to setup a prize for the winner or something!

 

That’d be fun!

 

Anyway, let me know what you all think!

 

Thank you so much for your help, I love you all SO VERY MUCH!

Driver Identification: Check! Team Identification: CHECK! Plus Thunderlane!

I recently enlisted the help of a buddy of mine, Brent with Design It Wraps & Graphics, with getting some door ID’s and team ID’s setup for my car, he accepted and the following is the result! I’m SUPER STOKED with how all of this came out! To top it all off, my VW, Thunderlane, decided to get his cutie mark as well!

Today was a good day! ^_^

*SQUEE* Derpy and I Need Your Help To Find an XBL User!

Help Dave Connect With This User!

As you can see, someone has made a pretty BANG ON clone of my car in Forza. The best part is, I don’t even KNOW the guy! I wish I did, I’d tell him “Thank You SO MUCH!” and give him a big ol Virtual High-Five . . .probably a hug! I know Derpy would hug him with all four hooves and her wings! This is absolutely awesome and I’m sincerely flattered by this gesture and homage to Derpy Hooves [Drifting is Magic].  I’m sincerely impressed! This is EPIC! Thank you, whoever you are!

Derpy has LITERALLY been making this face all night!

*SQUEE*

Derpy LIVES!

Well, she was never really dead, but she’s running better than ever!

 

For those who have been following the blog regularly, you know that Derpy was a bit sick over the previous months. I don’t know if it was all of the stress of the move or the cold weather but she developed a case of Bad Injectors.

 

So I opened the garage and pulled Derpy up on this rainy day:

Derpy sitting outside the garage, waiting for mending

 

 

And these bad boys came out:

 

Old injectors

The old, leaky/stuck injectors

And these were put in, brand new injectors from Trilogy Turbos! Check them out at http://www.trilogyturbos.com

New Injectors

New Injectors from Trilogy Turbos

 

They’re not only shinier but they put new life into Derpy . . .almost TOO MUCH life. We’ll get to that in a second.

 

Next up, a recently made friend of mine decided to help me out by selling me his OVCP (Over Valve Cover Pipe) hard pipe. Replacing those yucky (and as I found out, leaky) soft pipes with one solid piece throughout.

 

It also looks and flows MUCH better than the stock unit. Check it out!

 

The pipe when it came in

 

The new OVCP installed! Looks so much better!

 

OId Setup

The old setup, for comparison.

Close up of the old setup where it went to the BOV. You can see exactly where the leaks occurred. But, live and learn, right?

 

Now all that is left to do is find a location for the blow off valve OR have a bung (LOL! Bung) welded onto the OVCP for the BOV itself. That may prove easier, we’ll see.

 

Now, previously I mentioned that Derpy has new life and it’s almost TOO MUCH life. Well, the reason for that is, now that she has the new injectors and boost leaks fixed, she’s creating too much power for the stock clutch. It slips in the mid ranges. But no worries, a new clutch has been ordered, it’s an XTD Stage 3, 6-Puck Clutch.

A Stage 3, 6 Puck Clutch from XTD for the 1987 Chrysler Conquest TSi. Cloudsdale and Ponyville Legal!

 

At first I was hesitant to buy such an aggressive setup, but I figured that since Derpy is NOT a daily driver, it shouldn’t be so bad. It’ll only suck when trying to get her on the trailer, LOL!

 

I’ve also got on order, as I know they’re necessary, a set of coilovers. These aren’t a very well known brand, but they’re manufactured in the same building as K-Sports and D2s, at a much lower price, so I trust them.  I’ve also read reviews from people who have them and none of them have complained. I can’t wait to get them installed and get some serious drifting and racing happening this year.

 

Here they are, they are XYZ Sports!

XYZ Sport Coilovers for the Chrysler Conquest and Mitsubishi Starion.

 

 

 

Sorry for the lengthy update (and sorry for not updating more often) I just recently got all of these parts in and wanted to give all of the fans the run down and let them know what’s going on!

 

Thank you so much for being friends, fans and family with Derpy and I, it means SOOOO much!

A Quick Update on Derpy Hooves!

 

 

So Derpy is feeling a little sick, her injectors are sticking and leaking so those will have to be replaced. The mane problem we’re facing is that, because she’s a Conquest with the standard 2.6 liter turbo, her injectors are hard to find and when we do find them, they’re quite expensive. I’ve found a local shop/hospital that will take her in for a while and perform the necessary surgery required to get her up on all fours again and with any luck (and a lot of money) she’ll be in high spirits and on the track by summer!

 

Let’s hope that course stays!

 

Take care everypony!
