A couple weeks back, my buddy Clint Davis gave me a shout about a feature he wanted to do for the Longshots section of Import Tuner. This section is normally reserved for automotive photography, but Clint wanted to switch things up a bit, and feature some video content.It is VERY flattering to be featured in a tuner magazine for my endeavors behind the keyboard instead of behind the wheel. It is even more of an honor to be paired up on the same page with my ‘Keep Drifting Fun’ buddy, Will Roegge!This feature really turned out cool, and is available on newstands nationwide. Thanks Clint!!!
rnphoto c/o Sir Shawn the SmithThe private DM test-session on the road course at Atlanta Motor Speedway was SICK. Insane high-speed entries, and equally as fast course-exits. I remember looking down as I was apexing the last clip and the speedo was at 85mph. GNAR.Stay tuned for more details.
I finally got around to installing this piece. I think I ordered this in late 2004… and it has been by the wayside on my install list ever since. Truth be told, it would up in a toolbox, and I forgot about it. Matt had to drill out the existing hole and re-tap it for the VDO temp sender, because for some reason it didn’t fit right out of the box.Install was SUPER easy, and now my oil-temp gauge works!
Matt Foerst stopped by and helped me fix my stripped oil pan. He came armed with a HeliCoil set and had it knocked out in no time. Have I ever mentioned how much of a badass this dude is? Well… HE IS. I watched him change a clutch in my car in 45 minutes once… and he wasn’t even rushing. That same task took me and a friend 6 hours to do. Matt did it in 1/8th the time. BAD. ASS.On a totally unrelated note… I love the HeliCoil logo. It is so stylized in it’s simplicity. The intersecting elements representative of the thread coils are a great element that really makes it what it is.
