    I used to have a 1968 Barracuda Fastback, but did not have the money/time/space to restore it. Sold it to a guy that pimped it out.

    Now I have a new toy, an Adventure-sport bike:

    The bug does 11.60's so far. I haven't taken it down to sea level yet though. And with gas prices the way they are, don't know if i'll get it down there anytime soon. Until then, i'm stuck running it at 4400 ft. elevation. Mathmatically, it should dip into the 10's if I ran it down at Sacto.

    For the EFI, I went with a Megasquirt ECU (VERY happy with it), Redline/Weber throttle bodies, Innovate wideband, GM sensors, and Mallory for the fuel system

    Here's the engine:


    And here's the fuel delivery from up front:


    The fuel system is a bit overkill, but better to be overkill than underkill, lol.

    I've been known to drive in circles a time or 2... I didn't last year, stupid women, and likely won't this year, stupid almost closed track

    LOL very NICE!

    Yeah at sea level it will be like adding a BLOWER compared to 4400 ft!!!

    I saw the MegaSquirt. Even with those you have to do a LOT to dial them in. But once you're used to it, you can always change every setting later.

    Mine was home brew. Some guy (a non HVAC tech who I met here) helped me learn code for MicroControllers. It actually worked.

    I was messing with a turbo I had, but it was a little too big. It took too long to spool. When it started to make boost a few weekends ago, it broke loose the head bolt from the block (that I had RIGGED after it already stripped out).

    When I want to go to the extreme, I ride with my brother who is a pilot,
    flies the big jets, we fly around in this military trainer jet. This bird will
    fly straight up. He has had it 8 years, it screams along at 480 mph,
    sometimes 530 mph if the wind is right.

    Here is a front shot of it right after we flew in it. It drinks jet fuel, but is
    the biggest thrill.

    This is a 12 year old pic. Now still have the Banshee but also have the YFZ 450.
    used to race the Banshee in some desert races..was alot of fun
    Am pushing 40 and am supporting a family...try to keep the wheels down more lately

    Have an old 4 seater desert car that is in limbo due to some fab work needed.

    We try to get to the desert as much as possible..work is crazy lately

    I love muscle cars..am really wanting an old '67 GTO driver.

    Raced Dirt bikes all my life until recently. I got old and sold everything. Man that was hard to do.

    It's nice to see a Banshee that someone DIDN'T cut the front fenders off of!!!







    Here's mine. The first ATV I bought used (got ripped on buying the others new). It's fast as hell but the previous owner cut the fenders OFF!
    I like to ride through water, mud, etc. It sucks not having fenders. Most people around here think the first MOD to do on a new ATV is "shaving" the front fenders...





    We like to ride in the desert and sometimes up at the Cinders. (The part of Arizona that looks like Colorado )





    The hills are HUGE and it's at 7,000 ft altitude! My Banshee has a lot less power up there!





    New Video---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iXQhpNZ8mg

    Check out this new youtube video.
    A few weeks ago I took the Manx out with the daughter Melissa (13) and Matt was with us too. I taught her how to drive a stick. Then I drive it. I played with the fuel a bit on the home brew EFI and just when the turbo was making some boost it blew that stripped head bolt loose form the block again! (Had done a rig job to fix it).
    I still got fast enough out in the desert to scare them. Don't have a working speedo yet, but was in 4th gear. Probably doing 50 to 60 or so.

    I was going to sell it, but now I'm getting talked into keeping it. Now that I already pulled my EFI off and stuck the carb back on, maybe I'll try a blow through turbo setup.
