First time I've ever gotten a chance to see myself drag racing. These are 3 of the runs I made on Friday May 8th, 2009. I'm running 8psi of Boost, E85 for fuel, MegaSquirt is running my 2.4L DOHC motor. I REALLY have a traction problem in 1st and 2nd. The last car I ran against really threw me off, I normally baby my gas in 1st and 2nd to keep the tires connected. I couldn't hear anything but that loud thing, I was quite happy when he ran off and left me to myself. hehehe
The 1986/1987 Shelby GLHS vehicles
Kazzer introduces the long overlooked low budget performance sports cars
from Caroll Shelbys Chrysler turbo days,
the 1986 Shelby GLHS (sedan) and the 1987 Shelby GLHS (coupe)
These weren't just Shelby stickered up Chryslers, the GLHS series of cars
were taken to Shelbys Whittier CA skunkworks facility where the performance
was bumped up all around and limited editions were made..
1986 GLHS's = 500 total
1987 GLHS's - 1,000 total
Turbo Neon vs. SRT-4 on Pass Time - Actual Video
This is the segment of Pass Time where Nick and Steve from BoostedFools.com were on the show. Slower
times than usual for both cars because they were both on street tires.
Steve had some problems during this run also which as you can see affected
his time... it was also very late at night, 1 AM in the morning actually...
For more info/pics/videos on these cars and more, go to BoostedFools.com! Remember to check out our
forums! Thanks for watching.

1978 Dodge Omni vs VW Rabbit Golf & Toyota & Datsun Chi Chi Rodrigeuz
This Dodge Promo film was made in the Fall of 1977 for the January 1978
Introduction of the Dodge Omni. Chrysler Corporation introduced it's first
world car'. This car was in production from Fall of 77 till Spring of 89.
They were sold as Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Chrysler Horizon in the UK
and the Simca Talbot Horizon in France. 165,000 cars were sold in the USA
in it's first year of production. The US version used a VW engine block
with Chrysler Parts attached which is kind of ironic considering that they
are comparing the car to the VW Rabbit (Golf) in this film. Chi Chi
Rodriguez does the intro for this film. Wink Martindale does the voice
over for this. These films were produced by the Roy Ross Advertising
agency for Chrysler. They were filmed in Palm Springs. Apologies for the
bad sound quality after about 3 minutes, it's a film that's over 30 years
How NOT to remove your engine.
Subscribe to my channel, I'm always posting great videos!
About this video, I know this is a bad idea. There were some idiots on the
turboDodge.com forums suggesting that
this was a good idea. I needed to get a blown motor out of my car, so I
setup the camera and demonstrated exactly what can go wrong with this
method. Honestly, I tried to get it down gracefully, in the end I guess I
was lucky it didn't knock the car over in the process. Let this be a lesson
to all, use an engine crane. At least in cars where it's not designed to
come out the bottom.

Dodge Omni GLH Shift Linkage Installation
I installed the Great Lakes Hot Rods L body Shift Linkage kit in my Omni
There are some differences between the NA GLH and turbo model shift linkages which gave me a really
rough time. Notice where my NA ball socket is on the long piece which goes
to the shifter vs. stock. See also how my piece is angled so much more than
the turbo piece is.
If you barely install the spherical bearing into the rod that will be a
great starting place to allow for proper movement and placement of the
shifter for the NA models. Installing the ball on the opposite side like
stock may help, but I was following the directions, and the height wouldn't
have been all that different anyway.
At 2:31 you can see the arm which goes to the shifter and compare it to a
turbo one in the instructions you're
