Well-just had my first "adventure" with it. Took my buddy for his first ride around in it (he helped me with my rear torsion indexing on multiple occasions). We're driving down a street in my neighborhood, having just adjusted the ignition timing (runs much better!), and I say "wow- it sure is running better!". LITERALLY, within 3 seconds, we run out of gas and coast to a stop. I just had to laugh! Fortunately, we weren't on a busy street or anything!

I'm sure loving driving this thing! I can't WAIT to get my front suspension all set up! Although, I'm about to start wearing ear plugs or my Bose aviation headset- it's LOUD inside!

Excellent! It is a great feeling, getting on the road.

Don't you have a Supertrap on there?

I think it's a clone, but yes. I might have to start experimenting some with the discs. It's a little too quiet right now.

Y'know- oddly I've never noticed the straight-cut timing gear "whine" everyone was talking about. I was sorta looking forward to it too!

Just pulled all the discs and the end cap off. NOW it sounds like a baja, dangit! Running pretty rich right now. Time to do some reading in the Dellorto book and see if I can figure out how to get the carb dialed in a little bit. I sure HATE trying to figure stuff out from books!

Well, getting closer to starting the next major phase (hopefully FINAL phase for awhile!) of my baja- replacing the 3x3s and rear disc brakes with some different ones, and installing my Warrior beam, Tweed arms and front disc brakes. Took the "new" arms to the powdercoater today. Hopefully, I'll get my arms and tierods and a few other doodads ordered in the next couple weeks. For those who didn't see it in another thread, I'll post a couple pics here. I picked up a used SACO/Wilwood 4-wheel disc brake setup last weekend here locally. Should make my car STOP like crazy when installed!

Chenowth chromoly 3x3 arms


SACO billet hubs and brake rotors


Wilwood calipers


These things are BEEFY!

UPDATE- arms should be done this week at powdercoater's. Also, I ordered what should be the rest of my front end components today from Chirco. Hopefully, the suspension/brake morph should begin in a week or so...
