CRANKWALKED? 7-bolt teardown 1080HD
Now this is a story all about how
My bearings got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
And tell you how I used to mix and burn my gas and my air.
In RVA suburbs born and raised
On the dragstrip is where I spent most of my days
Chillin out, maxin, relaxing all cool,
'n all shooting some BS outside with my tools
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started running races in my neighborhood
I heard one little knock and my rods got scared
And said "You put it in the garage until you figure out where..."
I Begged and pleaded that it not be that way,
But it didn't want to start and run another day.
I kissed it goodbye, because the motor punched its ticket
I got out my camera, said "I might as well kick it."
Crankwalk yo this is bad
Drinking metal shavings from an oil pan.
Is this what the rumor of crankwalk is like?
Hmm this won't be alright
But wait I heard knocking, grinding and all that
Is this the type of failure that should happen to this cool cat?
I don't think so, I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for this video I share.
Well I pulled all the bolts and when I came out
There were chunks in my fluids in the pan and they drained out
I aint all depressed cause I seen this before.
I got my books and my wrench and we'll do it once more.
I sprang into action like lightning disassembled
I whistled while I worked and my hands never trembled
If anything you could say that this bling is rare,
and when I saw what broke I stained my underwear.
I turned off the air compressor 'bout 7 or 8
And I yelled to crankcase "Yo holmes, smell ya later"
I looked at my internals they were finally there
To sit on my workbench and stink up the air.

Here's the 48,000 mile-old 7-bolt I blew up summer 2011 after over 150 drag
passes, a half dozen Dyno sessions, 4 transmissions,
3 clutches and 10 years of hard all-weather use.
StreetThisEVO - 9.42 @ 151.07 mph - 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution IX - Buschur Racing
Finally got to take the car out with the new setup for 2011. Still getting
used to everything. Shifts are a little slow as I was just working on
getting it down the track nice and straight. I was blowing the tires off
even in second gear. Buschur Power!!! I plan to get out soon and
hopefully get that 8 second pass.
Timeslip is as follows:
60 ft - 1.4615
330 ft - 4.0716
1/8 et - 6.1610
1/8 mph - 115.04
1000 ft - 7.9193
1/4 et - 9.4244
1/4 mph - 151.07
Curt Brown 2010 Buschur Sport Compact Shootout
As usual Curt drove the car from Pittsburgh, PA to Norwalk, OH for the
event running a best of 9.10@160 in the Talon! We all believe this car has
8's in it but ran into some fuel issues on the last pass. Congrats Curt and
see you at the 2010 DSM Shootout looking for 8's!
Emery@STM going for some 9s in their Full Weight SSL Evo!
Emery gunning for some 9 second passes in his and Shawna's Full weight SSL
AEM EMS tuned by Emery@STM
Stock Brakes, Hoosier Drag Radials on MR Wheels
Drove the car 3.5 hours to the track, did passes exactly how it is driven
everday, drove home!
Quick Shifting vs. Powershifting
BEFORE YOU COMMENT :
-The purpose of this video is only to show the difference between quick
shifting and powershifting.
-Constructive comments are welcome.
-Stop whining about the shape of the transmission. I don't drive like that
all day everyday, and it still shifts like butter (must be done properly
-Whining about the position of my hand on the steering wheel is also
irrelevant. I usually drive with both hands on it, but during the making
of the video I happened to let one hand on the shifter because I felt like
it (multiple shifts on a short time).
-Thanks for watching and let the VTEC kick in, yo !
Quick lifted shifts vs full throttle powershifts. Powershifting means that
you never leave your foot off the gas while shifting. Also added some rev
matching near the end.
STM - HD2 EVO - Shake Down
The STM crew shake down, the HD2 EVO at a private test day prior to the
Northern Nationals at Fram Autolight Dragway, Meremere, New Zealand.
With a soft tune to get some data, the car went 1.17 to the 60'.
We only got one pass in as we found tiny pinhole in the intake port of the
cylinder head. This resulted in oil from the rocker cover entering the port
at idle. The pin hole is the result of a thin section of the head casting
where the head was ported which didn't show up until the car was put under
some stress at the track.
The car will be racing next at the South Island Champs. Thanks for all your
