    Burning away the quarantine blues.

    Looks like there will be no racing this year, and there is only so much that can be done at the shop when you can't get parts.

    Took the truck out to get some excercise.

    Yea eh I was suppose to do the Ferrari driving experience the weekend of April 26th. Postponed, but the raceway says I can use my ticket anytime once things are back to normal.

    Wait a sec... a v8 swapped turbocharged ranger? That has to be crazy fun.

    It's still on stock tires, and needs some stiffer suspension up front, so it's mostly just scary. I built the thing on a shoestring budget. Everything but the lowering kit is made up of homemade parts or repurposed junkyard parts. Even the turbo is a tp38 from a 97 powerstroke diesel. Good to 550hp I'm told.

    Very nice! Is the one fender flare for race car or for salt belt?

    Where's all the snow? We're getting more tomorrow
    My mom says I'm cool

    It's salt belt, but it's also getting some 325 series Nittos this year, which would necessitate trimming some fender in the rear anyway. Getting two birds stoned with one bush at this point.

    And that's just funny.
