Thanks guys. I like the car, but I swear it hates me or something. Every time I fix something, another thing breaks. When I got it running, the turn signal stopped working. :roll: It was an easy fix, but come on...

Every once in a while I find something pretty neat that I think would help out with our projects. I'm sure somebody has heard of this stuff before.

I know a lot of us do custom break and fuel jobs and this is a great product to use. Now this isn't the cheap green stuff (though it still doesn't cost very much). I've actually held it and it seems like it would work much better than standard SS.

Those lines are interesting...I'm about to start on my fuel/brake setup pretty soon.

I want to say hello to everyone and that I'm not dead. As many of the family men on here can attest to, sometimes life makes you take a break. The last few years have been interesting. We've had new additions to our family (5 now. All boys), a deployment to Afghanistan, and now I'm going back to school to finish my degree. My goal is to go to medical school and be a pediatrician. It's always been a dream of mine and I made the decision last year that I'm going to do it. I still have the alltrac tucked away safely in my garage. My wife loves me, but I think she was secretly hoping I would sell it. I still have all the parts and what-not stockpiled to make it a great project. My oldest is eight so its the perfect age to work together. It's going to be a blast. It will be a slower project and I'll post when I can. My goals are to keep it simple, modernize where I can, and 400hp at the flywheel. I figure thats the line where people say "Wow!", but it's not too crazy. Looking at many other projects the price seems to get a little too high for me after that. 400hp seems reasonable.
Everyone's projects are looking great!

I recommend you sell your car. With 5 boys you should start stockpiling food for when they hit their teenage years.

Does your car run? Trevor has been bugging me to get my car running so he and I can both go down to RMR. I think he'd pee himself if three AllTracs went to RMR at the same time!

What would he do with 4? Or do you only mean 185's? Love Trevor's car, if its the one I'm thinking.

He'd probably squeal like a school girl, all while peeing himself.

Ha! All the more reason for me to get this thing going!
Yes it runs, but...
Ok so the guy I bought it from did "rally" and didn't take good care of it so the body has some dents and dings. The car runs and drives fine and it has a lot of parts and pieces in great shape that are hard to find. My intentions were to restore it and make it nice (over the life of the car). But, the more I dig into it the harder I see that that is going to become. What I would like to do is take all the good working parts out of the interior etc. and make it a fun rallycross car. I hate to sound like a defeatist, but at it's heart that's what's best for it. Trust me, my boys and I are going to have some fun with it, but this way I don't have to worry about the bodywork and I can keep the parts in storage until I get a 185 in better condition. Right now this will be a fun learning experience.
