those look like the exact same times I saw with my '05 ATX. I made a 16.4 with a 50hp shot of nitrous.

My degree seemed to be mostly theoretical. There are some labs involved with our vibrations class, a senior level metals lab, circuits, experimental measurements, etc. But I think it's more of a "get out of it what you put in" program. The professors are great, but there are no requirements for inte...

glad it helped. Crutchfield is pretty good about clarifying fitment issues and recommending the right products based on your needs. I can't always vouch for their prices, but I assume they're usually reasonable

Congrats! I know my schools team likes to crash their plane prior to the event although I am not sure how they did (doing?) this year. Quick question, does your school have Formula SAE? If so, why didn't you do that? One of the biggest reasons our professor only lets us do Micro class now is that i...

My Senior Project (not that kind Gramps)

So today I wrapped up my last exam before finals on the 22nd. Things are starting to wind down a little, and I thought I would share a little about my senior project for those interested. My team competed in the SAE Aero Design competition East down in Fort Worth in March. Basically, we have been de...

I can see that both ways. I kind of agree with ragek23, I would have a hard time turning a wrench on a nice ACR like that one just because of what it is. However, at one point I thought the same thing about my SRT-D, thinking "oh, hey, this one's a little more rare than the rest. I should keep it st...

BTW for 14K i did find an ACR srt4 on autotrader with only 32,000miles and bone stock in OH. I'm slowly liking this idea a lot more.

Well Bill, apparently he felt you needed to know that the car you spent time and money fixing and were paying him to work on was trash and that he doesn't want your money to fix it.
