    Hey I'm Brian

    Figured I'd check out the forum. I have an 09 Cobalt with lots of visual mods and a few performance mods. That is my daily driver.

    My recreational vehicle is an '83 S-10 Blazer. 400 S.B. V8 bagged on 20's and body dropped. Still working on building a new floor and firewall in it so it's not drivable yet.

    Here is the car

    Thanks guys.

    I'll find some more blazer pictures. I have lots. It won't be staying in the multi color primer.

    TTM what is BIR?


    The only performance mods on the cobalt are GM Performance intake and exhaust, strut bar, BC coilovers, Short throw shifter.


    An old pic after I started modding it but before bags.

    BIR = Brainerd International Raceway. The cobalt would be fun on the road course. You might want different brake pads but that's all you would need to get out there. Oh and you need a helmet.

    We have an event on the 19th, I posted in the event section, check it out.

    Wow do most "slammed" trucks have to notch the belly pan for the driveshaft/tranny?

    oh cool, My car handles pretty decent but it's not fast by any means haha.

    Yeah it's normal to have to make a larger tunnel for the driveshaft and transmission. I'm actually only gonna have to make my driveshaft tunnel about 3 inches tall, that's not much.

    Do you have any experience with RideTech or AirREX?

    Hey "fast" is relative, it's all about the driver and the cars around you on the track. Todd here at Track Time has a 600hp 93' Camaro that is gutted/"track purposed" it is fast by just about any standard and he leaves it at home sometimes to drive his 2006 Accord on the track because he has just as much fun driving it as he does his Camaro. If you come to the track you will find that its fun to drive in sessions with people that have similar lap times regardless of what kind of car it is. Todd is an experienced driver and with the few minor mods he has on his accord (springs, shocks, Wilwood brakes and pads) he can keep up with and pass "fast" cars because he's a good driver.


    Also we just had two guys sign up over the weekend: a neon srt-4 and a 2000 civic...my point is you don't need to have 400hp corvette to go and kick ass on the track people bring all sorts of cars and they all have fun!

    PS I also live in Vadnais heights

    No I haven't used those products, you?

    and yeah I can understand what you're explaining. It would be fun. I'm a little shy about running my daily driven car on a track.


    I'm right on the border of little canada. County Rd. D East behind the wall along 694. You must be pretty close to me.

    Did a little work on the blazer over the weekend. I don't get to work on it all the time because it's at my parents house 40 minutes away from me.


    Welded in the two large floor pieces. They are nice and strong with the bracing underneath and beads rolled. Also got started on a driveshaft tunnel.

    threw a seat in there just for fun

    I'm the same, other cars on the track with me make me a little nervous. BUT the training events or AutoX help minimize that if you want to try them out. BIR holds a couple road course training events a year.
