Mine are garage queens cause they never run. Always breaking timing belts and stripping teeth off the oil pump and shaft. Cant hardly get around the block without some kind of failure. Thats why they all sit in the garage.....

No need to freak out when Jackson makes a comment like that, he's just trying to be funny. He never has problems with his cars, after he has personally gone through them, and all he drives are T3 cars pretty much.

Now Mr. Jackson, stop picking on the kids!


Oh, and I do neither with my T3. I usually save it for "special" trips out of town, usually car shows. Been to a couple local Mopar shows (local meaning 250-500 mile round trips), took it 2600 miles round trip to the Mopar Nats this past August, and as of right now, it's my top pick to take to the Moparty on the strip in Vegas next March (1600 mile round trip). It's not a garage queen either, only because I don't have one!

i really want to get into street class time attack...but it doesnt matter how much i think about the weak link in these cars is the rear suspension..maybe im wrong but it sure seems like that..plus my gf doesnt think i'll have time between full time paramedic classes and third shift job..i laugh in her face. i always make time for cars.

Ok im sorry but I had to.....

As for racing events I have ran my green R/T at the last 3 SDACs. First time at 20 it was about an 800 mile trip to get there,beat the crap out of it on the street and burrowed some slicks and made like 15 passes and drove it home. Only opened hood to show off engine.
21 was more fun,new motor(100 miles old) 38 PSI all day everyday at the event went thru a full set of tires playing on the street and giving rides. 18 passes on slicks and run its best times then drove home. Only opening hood to show off and adjust things.
22 was about 6 hours away and played on the street plenty too. Brand new slicks and about 20 passes between James Lindsay and I and finally killed a stock axle at the end of the day. Had to trailor home cause the axle stub was stuck in the Quaiffe..

Probably only have about 40K miles on the TIII cars between Tiff and I this year.
That make you feel better Shredder?

i just love killing corvettes the most cuz they are the the best to wallop on cuz all their owners are uptight pricks. the lambo ferarri and Porsche owners arnt to bad cuz they buy the cars to actually race, not be a status symbol

Never raced my T3 yet. I want to get to the track this coming year. Years ago i raced my 88 Shelby Z all the time, best run was in the 14.50s. I would be happy to get my R/T in the 13s
