nice car, GLWS.  I grew up in New Providence, cool to see such a unique car close by!  I bet it is a fun car to drive in Watchung Reservation

That's good to know!  I always worry about being a little fish in a big pond with some of these companies that cater to the NASCAR and NHRA pro guys.  Some are genuinely good to work with, some don't want to give you the time of day unless you've got a 7 figure operation going.

If I remember correctly, they will work with anyone, I remember the guy doing the hoses for us at Robby's was telling us about working on guys cars they were building in their garage

I am a big SW20 fan, what does the new motor have in it?  Any idea what the power will be?

I didn't know that!  I definitely want them doing the measuring and layout, because it's really hard to eyeball what I need not knowing exactly how tight I can go on some of the bend radii, etc.  And on the crimped stuff, they usually use one fixed end and one swivel to reduce likelihood for leaks.  I'm not too far from them, though, so I'll probably just winch it up on the trailer and bring it to them when the time comes.

Cool!  I know they will do it in their shop too and work with you on the routing.  Really nice company, I have met the owner a few times.

Z32 trans is not ideal because you have to put the starter on the bell housing, really terrible for packaging.

I would consider a K swap for sure, could be a cool motor for drifting.

My eyes begin to well up every time I think about what the million miles of -12AN and -16AN BMRS dry sump hose assemblies are going to cost me.

Look on ebay, I found another length of hose that would work for my fuel setup for $50, I got my other one from the autofair for $15 or so

I need to have their vacuum rated and crimped stuff for my setup anyways, so I'm screwed either way!  Probably going to just bring them my car, give them my credit card, and ask them to just charge it without telling me a final price.

haha!  They will actually come to you with their trailer and plumb your whole car for you

I'm going to redo my fuel lines in the trunk with ethanol compatible stuff and will probably use that.   I'm not excited about buying or assembling them...

The nylon is pretty easy, but yes stainless sucks

just an FYI,  I had a hunch and tried it, successfully assembled and will be testing soon.  I really like the convoluted PTFE hose, and am going to try and use it for all of my AN lines

Anywhere not on the coast of NC or SC has very little natural disasters, just bad thunderstorms.  Would never live in Florida lol, my parents are actually retiring to the coast of NC instead

The Lounge / Re: Justin Samberg - Vendor Relation Challenges
« on: November 26, 2019, 07:41:43 AM »
seems reasonable.

It sounds like deactivation makes sense based on the simple logic that he's no longer supporting the market.   

If this becomes a scenario where folks are reaching out to a deactivated vendor to ask about a cut rate on leftover inventory, that's pretty clear what they're getting themselves into, and we're fine with it...  I won't say it feels good given the design choices, but I think y'all are correct that the real rub is using his platform as a vendor to do so. 

At the end of the day, we get it:  Justin's just trying to make a living.  At one point, he really was a friend.  Maybe when this all went down there was rent to pay and he was just faced with some crappy choices.  An explanation would be nice, but it what it is. 

Does this seem like a reasonable position (deactivation but free to sell his leftovers as a private party)?  If it becomes clear he's trying to move added production, then we'll ask for greater intervention.

I agree as well.  It really is a shame he offered no explanation

I get all my steel (and most of my plastics) from Race City Steel in Denver.

I like them, their price is really good on that 1 x 1
