So a couple weeks ago, i posted about some s****y t**d breaking into my shop yard and stripping all the ground control coilovers, control arms, and m3 brakes off the new e36 track car i was building for myself. well, @groundcontrolsystems saw the post, and offered to send me new ones! i cannot begin to say how rad that is. after that, my homie @gotdapah came by and said he was hooking me up with m3 spindles and brakes, and helping me hook up the new security cameras! extra rad. i've said it before and i'll say it again, the car community is the best d**n group of people around. thank you guys!! #saynototheft #thievessuck #groundcontrol #groundcontrolsystems

New @mbrpexhaust stainless cat back kit installed on the rs. this kit uses a much lighter weight rear muffler, and deletes the factory bypass valve. it's also 3" as opposed to 2.5" and has a great tone without being loud or rappy sounding. #chucklesrs #focusrs #fordperformance #fordrs #stilol #mbrp #mbrpexhaust

Talk about torture testing! @tialsport we are getting in some serious testing this week! these run at about 2000* f for over 500,000 cycles. at that point we tear them down and evaluate the parts. even after that kind of abuse, they are still ready to go for another round. #test #testing #madeinamerica #michigan #heat #glow #glowing #tial #madetowin #thebestintheworld

Super stoked to announce that @fifteen52 is joining forces with us to do some one-off racing wheels for @oldsmokeyf1 for our assault on the diesel mile land speed record and hopefully @pikespeakhillclimb as well. they are also going to be supplying some turbomac wheels for the chuckles rs like the ones @kblock43 uses on his rally car. they make everything from 3 piece forged billet 3 pc racing wheels, to cast rally wheels like the tarmac and turbomac. wecome to the family guys! stoooked!! #fifteen52 #tarmac #cncwheels #teamoldsmokeyf1 #forgedwheels #turbomac #theoffset @theoffset_

Happy new year to me! some unscrupulous piece of s**t broke into the yard over the extended weekend, went through a bunch of cars, and stole all of the ground control coilovers, lower arms and m3 brakes off of our new e36 track car project. if you see any of this stuff for sale give me a holler. coilovers are are ground control, yellow with red springs. calipers are brand new m3 as well as lower arms. m3 spindles.

It's oil change time for @oldsmokeyf1 we only use @powerdrivendiesel zddp rich full synthetic oil. modern over the counter oils don't have nearly enough zinc in them for high performance diesels, and cause more wear because of it. we also use @knfilters oil filters. they flow more oil than standard filters by reducing restriction in the filter media, helping keep your high revving diesel fed with clean oil. #powerdrivendiesel #syntheticoil #dieseloil #k&n #k&noilfilters
