Default GXP"* Next Mod Plan Of Attack.....And other necessary B

I thank the many people who have written me and I was overwhelmed at how many people here were supportive. ( even though i admit i was being too sensitive) (**** happens when ya
start believeing theres a pork chop in every beer bottle). ( All Apoligies sent / received and a huge reinforcement of a great club.

Havent been on much as i've been busy with car and drying out to 'bout quater speed

Haro is not a problem and we've talked.....he just didnt think before posting that and I believe him when he says he didnt purposely link the "joke"to my condition

Bill is Bill and I should have felt proud to to provoke his good natured attention. It just happened on a set of days I felt like the whole world was pissing on my feet and telling me it'* raining. Sorry Bill,
And who better to understand the art of posting with your sails fully hoisted.
************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** **

Things for the car now in the works should keep me busy.
It'* entered in the Carlilse Custom Show (one of the largest, and craziest) Weekend of May 7 and I want alot done yet.

Hope tp have front air struts installed. Coupled with the OEM rear air struts the car will sit on totally indepent air ride suspesion, powered by twin Viair 150psi chrome compressors, feeding
a chrome air tank with switched air selenoid valves, and dump selonoid valves. This is all monitored by a blue flourecent lit control panel which tells me the individual pressures to all four
air struts and the tank pressure as well. All sensors will be removed and sealed. (and looking for a black sticker just the right size to cover the Service Light thats gonna result.
And the air ride system comes with the next gen digital control box.(size of a small TV remote).Now that my bonnie can fly, she'* gonna learn to "dance" as well. This mod should bring
down quater mile e.t.'* as well putting to fronts to ground and rears jacked. Will Wren told me rigging a cabin controled ELC trick would not be as simple as I stated, so I just had to one up
him.....J/K BIll......

Also in the trunk ( Starting to think I'm gonna need spare tire compartment) will be twin amplifiers, one for new rear deck speakers and one for the 8'subwoofer going in the middle of back ledge and the custom box for sub. A 700 Inveco 120volt Inverter (chosen for red enameled ribbed aluminum housing not quality) This is mainly for the laptop going in the front cabin (God knows exactly where yet) which has WiFi and three web cams are planned. cabin cam on swivel and one in each bumper. (this mod is really needed cause of the paint job, I'm infamous for hitting concrete parking blocks and curbs parallel parking. And all three should make for great video footage. Laptops also getting upgrade for GPS and feeding twin DVD monitors behind headrests. And it'* a toy that will be a focus for alot of other mods. I also have a Onstar web account and can ask for and receive instant engine diagnosis

Time permitting I shoul have red neons and led lasers in as well.
Damn I'm gabby when sober Pics will start appearing as next step in GXP VENOM begins

Good to see your still adding things on your car but, why you want it to go faster and add stuff on it? ..amplifier, sub, etc...

Weight will kill power.(i say that just because you want to go faster)

Considering the added load on your electrical system, the 'ol GXP is just begging for one of these:



There'* a half dozen of these running here now (I have a 160amp myself) and they work great. There'* even a couple 200amp units. Email or call him. He'll set you up.

Thanks to everyone for the positive replies and input, Haro, glad to be back and I want everyone to understand that most of the misunderstanding was my bad and NOT yours. And Bill'* just got a drinking posting twin from different mothers and I need to learn to take it if I'm gonna "play"

Will thanks for the link and your dead right... I'll be pushing the OEM alternator to critical....

Mike, I understand your concern but organized drag racing isnt what drives or appeals to me. After I get some E.T.'* and dyno sheets for reference and validity the car will not be dragged anymore....that kind of enviroment is to deterimental to the kind of money i'm investing in appearence. My paint job alone could buy me a new N*. What interests me most is Custom car shows and staying on top of eating ricers who are getting close to 300Hp OEM. The suspension system is lighter than OEM and I lose the coil springs. The air compressors fit in my hand and tank is small. The subwoofer and amps minumal size. And the ability to get entire suspension tricked should come close to offsetting the extra 200 lb'*....possibly a little more. And since I wont be doing drag racing regurlarly, i will be apt to jet nitrous to a point I wouldnt go if I were going to drag every weekend. My experience with the 75 Hp jetting alone (first bottle is toast) tells me I can afford a few pounds.The acceration is incredible and I'm ashamed to say scary getting use to keeping the car under control with the &%(#$ing torque steering. Still I appreciate and respect your side of the performance fence and understand the weight issue clearly.
