Thanks Ted, I don't know what I would have done without you the past few years!

You have helped me learn so much about my Viper.

Got married? :)

Sorry, it's that "imagination" of mine - always looking for great possibilities.  You're welcome, I'm glad that I've been able to help you out Leslie.

It's a good thing when knowledge gets use - otherwise it just becomes trivia, lol.

You're an amazing person and I like to think you go around the track a little faster 'cause of my info and suggestions.

I asked a couple vendors and JonB sent me a reply that Archer builds bushings, but needs the A arms to to them for you.  Waiting.

hey Ted, thanks I really appreciate it!

Today was an AWSOME day!  Drove to MI to track down my mechanic of 7 yrs, darn if he didn't move this summer :'(  Peace of mind, I know my shocks/springs aren't shot, all is well.

Shop I took my car to didn't tell me they saw a screw in my tire, they know I track my Viper. ???

Valve stems were also leaking air, so once we replaced the valve stems and put the pressure where it should be, car wasn't bumping anymore. 

I guess it's a 'give and take' with a street car I drive on the track.  I gotta decide if I am willing to give up some comfort on the street to get the drive I love at the track.  I am at the edge of that right now with tires/wheels/susp/alignment where if I go any farther I'll need to start trailering it.

When something's good I am learning to just ...leave it alone!  haha.


Just got a call from 2 of my Viper buddies and they are gonna run this weekend with me at Mid OH, couldn't have been a better day!!!!

That's the wonder of the internet.

Sean Roe said that he's been trying to get companies to build the Poly bushings for us and he will try to convince them at SEMA, again.  He said that he also built bushings but they would start to get noisy after a few years.  Guess that means race only or high maintenance.
