Quickshift Update 1-25-12
Update for Project Quickshift (1-25-12)
Truck is just finished at Motor Machine Super Shop. Tune is done and the
truck is making power and driving like a champ. This is a collection of
videos I have taken during the course of recent events. Sorry for the poor
picture quality. For some reason my phone likes to change it's settings
back to default every once in a while instead of shooting in 720p like I
told it to...
A HUGE thanks goes out to Don and Bob at Motor Machine Super Shop in
Carmichael, CA. I couldn't have done it without them.
Also, big thanks to STS turbo, Sinsity
Kustomz, HiLEDs, Auto Radio Stereo, Over The Top Performance, Jonny_Vico,
Cory (05_quick4door), Mike B (emaxxer), and all who gave encouragement and
advice. It has been a very rough and tiring road, but we finally did it.
Enjoy the video
Video of the 2014 West Coast Super Meet (WCSM) this past weekend. Lots of
good times with good people.
I apologize for any issues with the video. Had some weirdness with the
GoPro and my computer (which sucks) and got some issues in a couple spots.
No matter. On with the show...

AutoX-ing the Canyon
Took the Canyon to the Good Guys AutoX on 5/31/14 and had some fun. My
buddy Jeff is riding shotgun while I try to go around without make it look
like I know what I'm doing.
Was running Nitto 420S tires 255/55/18 so times could greatly improve with
better tires and if I knew what the hell I was doing...
As always, thanks to Jay's Hot Rods, STS turbo, Nitto Tire, and XS Power for their support.
Part 1: Installing A Short Shift Kit On A BMW
blog.BavAuto.com -- A short shift kit reduces the length of throw between
gears on a standard transmission. This can shave seconds off your driving
times. In this two-part video, watch as Bavarian Otto installs a UUC
Motorwerks Evo3 short shift kit and Double-Shear Selector Rod on a BMW E36
M3 (95 thru 99). Both the short shift kit and selector rod can be purchased
in our online store at www.BavAuto.com.

QS 500hp or Bust (again...)
After our appearance in Truckin Magazine and the saga of the blown motor,
we decided to come back stronger than ever and build something most people
had never even dreamed of.
Project: Quickshift is now, to my knowledge, the worlds first vehicle to
have forged internals for the GM Atlas 5cyl motor. It made 350rwhp in this
video and we are currently working to get that figure to over 400hp, which
roughly translates to over 500hp at the motor. In the coming weeks Motor
Machine Super Shop will be working to finish the motor build out and show
that 500hp in a reg. cab mid size truck, is plenty for anyone.

Took the little truck to Sac Raceway to see how it liked the new NT420S
tires I had put on this winter and I have to say, the results speak for
