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.
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.

A SBK Novice Win: WERA, Fontana, 5/25/14
My quickshifter stopped working in the Formula 1 Novice race so I had to
power shift the bike this whole race. I started in 2nd grid position in the
