Getting excited
« on: January 23, 2010, 10:33:19 AM »

Bought some tires for the tgp. The tires that were on there were from 1998!
I bought Fuzion ZRi 245 50 16
I haven't had a really dry road to try them out on but Im super excited because the tires were the only thing keeping me from taking it to the track last year. Now that I think about it, I had probably better replace the boot on the passenger side halfshaft. Its got a tear and it leaking... but besides that, I cant wait! Hoping for a low 14.

Those are decent summer tires but I would keep them away from snow at all costs they sent my 89 into the ditch 3 times in 2008.

Even with the new tires I still have a traction problem. But to be fair the roads in these vids were kinda wet. The first vid I just floored it. Second I played with the throttle until I got traction.

I have to say though... of everybody that'll be out there, I'd be most excited about racing you. There's not a lot of people that race their TGPs any more.

So far, here's the list

Yea I am thinking most definatly will be out on the 28th with you guys. I still need to check map quest but I'm not worried about mileage. I do need to drop in my comp cam rockers and the 22lb yellow top injectors with in the next two weeks. I just wish I could get a torque conveter in before hand but I'm thinking not. Hope to see you guys there.

I would join in but hell I never get anything done lol!  I probably will just join NTRCOOL there unless I get a rig ready for the track but never hold your breath the guarantee is as bad as my promise to stop buying them!

Just about ready for Sunday. I need to swap out for a new set of wires install a oil pressure guage air up and load my slicks into the trunk. I think I might head down sat night and grab a hotel near the track, because I hate getting up early.
