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!

*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!

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.
