So I wanted to start this thread as a continuation to Tyler's (Boostingsnail) build thread. Keep everyone in the loop of whats going on with the car so people dont think it disappeared or ended up in the hands of someone just looking to strip the car for its parts.

Here's a link to Tyler's build thread for reference: https://www.srtforums.com/forums/f451/boostingsnail-vegasfuel-agp-turbo-street-machine-build-599268/

For those of you who didn't know this car, it was immaculate. Tyler took his time with everything and couldn't have asked for a better track car for the price.

So I originally had a 2005 Flame Red SRT that I had a tire blow out while merging onto a highway and subsequently lost control of the vehicle and went head on into a median across 3 lanes of traffic in April of 2013. Thankfully I was ok and no one else was involved. My insurance check was surprisingly substantial and I needed a new car to track with minimal down time. I would have loved to have built another car but I found Tyler's for sale and with my insurance check I was able to purchase his car and a trailer.

Last season, between my car being broken into and all of my safety equipment, gopro and tuning stuff stolen, buying a house (with 4 garages!), family stuff, and work it was a bust. The car was garaged and started here and there to let everything run. Over the last couple months I've been able to replace everything that was stolen and been able to start making some tweaks here and there to the car.

So far the ACT twin disc has been removed and sent out to get rebuilt, after Tyler's track seasons I felt it could use a refresher just to make sure everything good with it. While the trans is out I will be placing a Monster Billet Clutch Fork salvaged from my wrecked Srt, DCR Fork Ball and Mopar TOB. A DCR 4th solid motor mount is going in as it was the only mount that wasn't changed and its easy to get to by sliding the engine over with the trans out.

I plan on getting a lot of seat time this season to get comfortable at the track with the car and get consistent 60's. I also want to get the track times this car should have been putting down at a good track, most likely Maple Grove, Englishtown, Atco and Island for test and tunes (Tyler was running at Beaver Springs). Then I plan on getting a tubular exhaust manifold, havent decided which one yet but that'll be down the road, something twin scroll, bigger intercooler, water injection, 2000ish cc injectors and an E85 tune.

Good luck with your build and the car.

I'm not totally far from Maple Grove, a little over 2 hrs and 15 minutes give or take and the same with beaver springs.

If you ever go Maple Grove on the Weekends, let me know I will support ya.

Continued build pictures:

















Here's some pictures of the twin disc after two track seasons.









On a side note, my bumper from the red car wasn't a complete loss. A buddy of mine that does circle track racing was in the need of a bumper for his neon and I offered him mine to try and repair and see what he could do with it, needless to say…. IT TURNED OUT AWESOME!

A little update while I'm waiting for the clutch to come back from being rebuilt. So between my trailer and the height of the car always making it difficult to load and then also there being the catch can setup and coolant overflow behind the bumper underneath the headlights I needed a better and faster way to get the bumper off. I know some aren't the biggest fans of the Dzus fastners but I like the way they turned out. I orignally was gonna try some sort of draw clamp style fastner but couldn't find any I really liked so I settled with these. 2 on each side and 3 under the hood for 7 total and solid as can be.

Car is back together and was running good. Had it down to Ocean City, MD for Cruisin' weekend but started have some rich idle issues, think it's due to an exhaust leak. Also found out the 2-step isn't working so gonna figure those two things out and then hit the track!

Been chasing the idle issue the last couple weeks, finally found that my upstream o2 sensor went bad creating bad readings and making the pcm dump fuel.

Went to the track last night, first time attempting to launch on slicks. Didn't even get off the line on the first pass and broke the passenger axle. Thankfully I have spare stockers but now I'll have to send this one back to DCR to get rebuilt. Gonna try and go next Friday with better results.

Got 3 passes in last night. First pass didn't launch it, just wanted to get it down the track. Second pass lowered the 2-step to 5500 and ran 12.2 @126 with a 2.0 60'. Third run my 2-step stopped working at the line and couldn't get it figured out after so called it a night.

Thanks man definitely appreciate the support.

2-step is fixed, found a loose wire connection. Car is all ready to go and I'll be heading to Island Dragway on Wednesday the 6th if the weather cooperates.

Times from last night. Got a new personal best of 11.5 @ 124. Still gotta get my 60' under control. Car bogs right off the line launching at 6600 with no tire spin but picks up and backhalfs like a train. Anyone have some suggestions?

Looks like your 11.5 pass was right on. Need Low 1.7 60'fts or mid to high 1.6x's. Your MPH is pretty consistent.

Did you log that pass, did you change anything after that pass?

Let off the clutch to fast?

Unfortunately I couldn't change a thing because I forgot my laptop. This was the first outing where I had nothing go wrong so I was just happy to get down the track consecutively. Next time I'm definitely gonna log the runs and post them up to look over.

When you say letting off the clutch to fast do you mean dumping it off the line? With the twin disk I pretty much have no choice especially once it gets hot.

Boost by gear? If so what are your settings?
Yup boost by gear, I'm using the high boost settings so I'd have to go check quick what the box is demanding. When I'm running I don't really take notice where I'm at boost wise.

That's awesome man. Bring that laptop with you and get that 1st half down. You will be in the low 11s no doubt ?
