    Chrisfball12,
    I remember when you first got that pikachu, you were messaging everyone for help restoring that ride, from mbworld, benzworld, and then finally saw you here on 190Rev. Looking good. How's the engine and everything?

    The engine runs fine but passing smog is tricky. Sometimes it won't pass sometimes it will so I have a few issues. I just fixed the bent Evo2 wheels and had them painted and finished. The 100 mile drive was shake free with my new wheels, i'm so happy.

    Storm prep in anticipation of Hurricane Harvey. Now have 3 working generators. Gotta have spares when u r going to power a water well. Both Hondas started 2nd pull. It's going to be a long week if modeled trajectory if followed. Hurricanes have a habit of not following the rules.

    Thumbs up

    For as long as I've known with these models from an 8v to 16v, 12v to 24v, and even a 4.2l or a 5.0l v8's, we all tend to drive them hard sometimes just to feel the torque pushing into the seats...just simply replacing the catalytic converte is as easy as it gets. Those tend to suffer the most here in the west coast. For guys in the east coast, they just suffer from corrosion and oxygen sensors are their gremlins. Then the $400 smog pump or egr valve were also my gremlins. Haha...

    I like that you've keep it up after all these years. I disappeared since I had a kid in my life, and I returned to the 190E world so my kid and I could project this build for him. Hopefully this way he can respect this car and work on it when he starts to drive.

    I'm not as active as I use to be 10 years ago. Only reason is now I'm working full time and I'm beat when I get home. Last thing I need is fix the 190 hence why the car is still Yellow.

    Thumbs up Drove out to Newcomb's Ranch (CA-HWY 2 - Angeles Crest Highway)

    Did an early Canyon run this morning and MAN was it still humid-hot-ass-hell at 9AM. (Haven't been up here in 20 years)

    The BenzDroid handled well for the first run. Looking forward to either lowered VOGTLAND SPRINGS or chopped 400E/420E springs for just a little more tighter handling.

    Brakes are new with ceramic pads, did not do cross-drilled slotted this time around, because I wanted to make sure this car is serviceable. Although after today's run, I might be switching over to cross-drilled for cooling reasons, when the pads wear down. On the corners it did not tire-screech, cornering was great at 40-50mph on the 25mph turns. I ran up and down mostly on 3rd gear(automatic) and even on this hot-ass-day, no cooling issues(knock-on-wood), thank goodness. I'm running on NANKANG NS-20 205/50R16 on 16x8, yes there is a slight stretch for the height, it's fine. Like I said earlier no tire-screech and for under $60 each, they are also excellent autocross tires.

    Anyways, my solo run for the month. probably going up again at the end of this month if I don't do a track or autocross run.

    PM me or reply to this post, if anyone wants to do something like this on occasion, once or twice a month. It was all fun, I did not overtake and did not force anyone off the road, actually kept my distance and most drivers were courteous enough to pull over to let me pass, including a motorcycle driver I was tailing at a distance (he had a passenger, but driving pretty fast).

    Anyways, if you're out there crusing this weekend, be safe!!!

    Hey glo86,
    Ya heard the others talking about that last Saturday. I just missed out. Had an itch for over a year and this weekend was perfect timing(missed the rain too). And after doing so, I definitely need the 2" drop before then.

    I also might be planning Kanan Road from Malibu to the 101 via Mulholland, used to do that years ago too. GMR is another itch for me as well. I'm gonna try to find some springs today at the pick-your-parts sale. ;-) Built the car, may as well enjoy the car, right?!

    PhotoChopped:
    2" drop up-front...LOL
    Do you admin remember that old section of 190Rev?
    PhotoChopShop...can't find it...forgot the name.

    It's not about the drop... it's about the correct spring rate....

    Don't bother with off the shelf spring sets get your self a set of H&R r129 500sl springs and chop them to the right height.

    Slap on some good shocks and enjoy!

    For me today was my last day as a full time car salesman selling GM cars. I'll be a part time salesman on the weekends selling GM cars. My new venture is working on self driving cars with GM.

    FYI cross drilled rotors do nothing for heat. Start with high quality pads and fluid first. The next most imports factor on brake fade is rotor size. This is of course if you are already running vented (down the vertical access of the rotor) rotors.
