Sticky this thread... Whats in and whats out for 2010
Here is a list of whats "in" and Whats "out" for 2010 according to Josef Jaureguiberry in the world of cars and drag racing. Use this list as a life line... use it as if you were a fallen senior citizen pounding on your life-alert button. Enjoy.
Out- Drag lites and spinners. Including spinner hub caps and necklaces.
In- Billet Specialties, Champion Wheels, and of course DAYTONS. Everyone needs a CLEAN set of daytons laying around. Preferably 120 spoke 13's.
Out- Kirkey Seats, Tap-Out seat covers and floor mats. People... you DO NOT need top-fuel seats in a 12 sec. car. Plain and simple. If you do, you might as well roll around town with a Hanns device.
In- Corbeau seats and alike. Sure they're heavy, but so are golden bars and Lincoln Continentals and NOBODY here can say they don't want either of the two. Leave 'em in there and throw those floor mats away.
Out- Narrow band air/fuel guages and any type of rainbow colored "Faze" guage. You are better off running a hose from the exhaust pipe into the car to find the air-fuel ratio of your civic by monitoring your time of death... which would do us all a favor.
In- Racepacks, Dataloggers, and for some reason,,, Tachometers that are the size of a city culvert. You "could" get rid of the tach to make up for the weight difference of the seats, but why get rid of something cool?
Out- 177 in cowl hoods and Stalker body kits. Look... at least you wont be embarrassed seeing as how NO ONE can see your face passed the cargo-ship hull you're using as a hood.
In- Clean, short, extended cowl hoods, or, no hood at all. No hood works well for wrenching on the fly, but dosent work worth a damn when your name is bitchstang and your Digital 6 turns into a rain-water storage facility.
Out- 75,000 dollar shop built 14 second cars that get into magazines. Look... its politics and don't deny it.
In- 10,000 dollar, home built, 9 second cars that destroy the shop cars on the street. Whats the excuse for that car not fitting into the pages of your favorite mag? Probably the fact that the owner is HEAVILY armed.
Out- 2 valve 4.6's. From rolling fires, projectile spark plugs, and bearings that spin like ferris wheels, I don't believe I'll be building a 2 Valve anytime soon.
In- PUSHROD V8's. Sorry Supra and Cobra guys... this will always be "in". From LS1's to 815in Donovan BBC's, they STILL have the fastest times for any internal combustion engine. "But... but... What about the 6 speed record?" Last I checked, Ashley Force could give a FUCK about a 6 speed record... ans Ashley Force is a Goddess.
Out- Drifting and road racing. Sure its fun... After you've had your ass handed to you everywhere else. These are the ONLY two motorsports where its "ok" to lose... need I say more?
In- Drag racing, land-speed, and oh fuck I hate to say it... but Nascar. Why Nascar? Because every race I get to see Danika's face... that's why.
Out- Biker boys with big Mo-hawk helmets.
In- Turbo-charged biker boys with big Mo-hawk mouths. (waiting for retaliation)
Out- Pissing on everything in your life for the sake of getting faster. Fuck, before we know it, people will be able to drive around New Mexico and see tons of "done" ET Street radials holding trailer roofs down.
In- Turning wrenches AFTER work or work at turning wrenches... the economy sucks, and it sucks when a popular car goes down... so thank the lord we help eachother out to get 'em out there and running.
Out- Pump-gas race cars. Last I checked, nobody gave a flying shit about what was in the tank. That bitch could be burning bananas and cooking oil and I would STILL put 747's on it... at the track or on the street.
In- RACE FUEL. Turn that shit up or go the fuck home. It isn't cheap to be a winner, so don't bitch about the price of 116.
Out- A top highway speed of 51 MPH. I bet you wish you didn't decide on those 5.13's when TSC came along... don't cha?
In- 6 Speeds, gear vendors, or taller gears. Who would of thought? Freeway rolls out of a Turbo-400?
Out- Arrow 102.5. Sorry Jerry, John, any other old guys... but alot of things have changed since America was the number one band in the world and Alice Cooper could actually hit the high notes... those days are over and you should probably just let it go.
In- A little contraption called XM radio. You can listen to REAL music while you try to figure out why your 4.6 just shit out the num 7 ring glands.
Out- DSM's. I don't need to explain.
In- DSM's. Why? Go buy a 50 dollar 78 caprice from M&F and set her up at about 40 mph. You'll saw that DSM in half... and live to tell about it... and feel a sense of gratification.
Out- Street racing for "fun". You mean to tell me that I'm going to kill a 300 dollar set of tires, use 5 gallons of fuel, and potentialy bar-ditch my car for the sake of just fun? No. I don't think so.
In- Street racing for CASH. Hopefully my winnings will be enough to cover the tow bill, fuel, and tires. Not to mention my meal at Taco Cabana.
Out- Talking shit about big tire cars on the street... It really dosen't matter... right?
In- Beating big-tire cars on the street. This however, DOES matter.
Out- Trailer queens. Stop it already. Ok.. if you're going all the way to Roswell, load her up. But if you're driving from Rio Rancho to the track with your SS Minow on a trailer and the bitch goes 12's... Grow some balls already.
In- FUCKING DRAG WEEK. I really think TSC needs to make a showing in this event. Drive the bitch 1000 miles and make a couple hits with her... Plus, there's groupies on that tour. Yeah... you heard me right.
Anyway.... if you want to add to the list, feel free. This will be an annual thing, so read up. Some of us my want to print this bitch and laminate it... maybe hang it from the rear-view to remind yourselves of how cool or pitifully rediculous you are. Let 'em eat this season bitches.
I look in my garage and see a car that doesn't get yanked by a crx....
