Ill just take the line off and vent straight from the catch can to atmosphere. Or if I can ill throw a filter on it to look legit. Cant run it to the intake as my car is turbocharged.

I drove past the cars parked waiting for inspection while driving on the 201 and thought to myself how I'd like to be there, but I spent the afternoon with my girls.  Ah well, hope everyone had a good time there.

Hope you weren't headed west lol. Traffic was a joke right there. I could see it backed up from the staging lanes.

Thanks to UtahSohcTurbo for the advice at the track. Unfortunately I snapped an axle(I will have to learn to launch better) on street tires. I was only able to make 2 passes. Thanks again.

Not a problem man. You should put some slicks on it and make a few passes. That'll really get you goin haha.

Yeah Im thinking of getting another set of rims for slicks, and the skunk drag kit. I would just run stock axles, and try to get better at not breaking them.  I just dont want to drop 1200 for axles when I only make it down there once a year.Plus im starting another project car. Does preloading make a noticeable difference on your clutch life? Also what rpm is your 2-step set at when your doing this?

I know what you mean aftermarket axles are far from cheap and not cheap as in lowballer talk either lol. As for your 2 step, its all dependent on the car. Your 2 step isn't gonna be the same as say Ryans, his car hooks at a different RPM then yours does. You just have to find that mark of where your hooking pretty good without completely breaking loose.
