Happy Thanksgiving everybody! For those coming out of their turkey comas, I thought I'd post up the recent gauge face upgrade we completed on Orange Krush. This is one of those modifications that the driver gets a lot of mileage out of. You look at the gauges constantly and having something custom and unique really improves the driving experience.

For improved consistency in shifts as well as the ability to more easily hit my desired launch RPM at the track, I installed a Raptor Shift Light in to Project Orange Krush. Details and video inside!

Hit the track for a new personal best this past Saturday. I've gotten consistent in my launch and shifts and am now hitting 10.85 - 10.88 consistently with mid 1.5 60 foot times as well.

After searching for an serious brake upgrade for Orange Krush that wouldn't require custom three piece wheels, I found the Baer Brakes Pro Kit. Wow, what an upgrade. This brake system has made the biggest difference in driver experience since the supercharger. Full install information as well as real world testing inside!

A little pet project at Speedy's Garage this week. Crazy Coolers and I have partenered up to help Racing4Vets at ChallengerFest7. They're offering $100 off with discount code SPEEDYS GARAGE at checkout. If ten units sell with this code they will donate a cooler to the charity auction at ChallengerFest7 with 100% of the proceeds going to Racing4Vets! I bought one myself and it is a TON of fun. I've got some modifciations lined up as well so stay tuned :)

I kenw Orange Krush had a sub four second 0-60 in her. Finally got it today playing around on some back roads. The Nitto 555R tires get the job done on the street. With a little more finesse on the 1-2 gear change I think a 3.8 is in there.

Modifying the rear sway bar end links makes mounting Weld wheels MUCH easier at the track.

The rear 295/35R20 Nitto Invos finally wore out on Orange Krush after an amazing 20,000 miles that included more tire spin than I really wanted. I upgraded to some Nitto 555R drag radials in a 305/35R20 size. They fit, with a little massaging. Hit the picture below to see how it's done. I got some new wheels at the same time as well :) The 555Rs rock!
