    Oh wow. Wonder if you'd even like it. At this point maybe you shouldn't watch it. How I feel about anything with the word "Star" in the title.

    I caught it but ignored it. No bullshit on the cop chip or cop shocks though.

    Well, the first 200 miles went great this morning. I was taking my time and hyper-miling.
    110 miles outside of Cleveland, I realized that if I didn't hurry up, I'd be stuck in morning rush hour traffic. And at the that point I wanted to be home and see my family. I proceeded to do around 70-80 mph for the next few hours. Only then I realized that I may not make it home on gas. I refilled the 2 gallon can again, so I wasn't worried about running out; I just didn't want to. So, I resorted back to hyper-miling, and started doing some calculations and realized that I should have just enough gas to get home.
    I did. Total trip was 503.1 miles. I made it home. Just took it to the store and it's still going at 514 miles. Not gonna beat the new record, but I'll definitely take back-to-back 500+ mile tanks of gas.
    Now the mods can begin for the return trip in 11 days.

    It has cop shocks and a 440 plant and it's a model that can run on good on any gas. As for shocks for your car TOJ3 get the Billsteins I heard good things but not avilable for older CV"s and GMQ'S.

    I'm currently running the KYB Gas-A-Justs on all four corners. Thanks for the heads up though.

    I found the secondary color for the Tank. No more Grabber Green.

    From this:


    To this:


    yup.

    I replaced the shitty sway bar end links too:

    I'm headed back to Indy on Monday. Looking to break 567 miles. I'm still on the same tank of gas I came back on last week. 529 miles so far, but I should be empty very soon.
    I also filled in the massive gaps under the directional with black weather stripping; 7/16" tall, 3/4" wide. It looks nice on the driver side, but a little off on the passenger side.

    Also filled the gaps in under the turn signals:


    This one has a bit more gap. I'll take car of the gap under the head lights once I get the newer ones installed.


    Low fuel light kicked on at 488.7 miles. A 3.4 mile improvement.

    Sweet. You thinking of adding flares to kick wind around the front tires?

    Most definitely. There's a lot of frontal area exposed and can be covered and air diverted.

    Also:
    578.9 miles on a tank. I think I've reached the mileage limit of 3.27s.

    Don't take it the wrong way, but I find it funny that you're into hypermile stuff given that I've ridden with you before, and your driving style, especially in the Nagivator, was not exactly conducive to fuel economy.

    My wife says the same thing, lol.

    I like most all aspects of being a car enthusiast. Except those stanced and donk rides. Those all suck.
    It doesn't take too much skill to slap a few parts on from the Summit catalog and go fast.
    It does take a little skill to squeeze out the best efficiency of your vehicle. I like it; it's a challenge.
    And the Navigator is severely fuel deficient, lol. Especially with like 7 dudes in it, going through the PA hills.

    Ah hell, I hate that stance/donk shit with a burning passion. Let's spend money to make our cars hazardous and shitty. Nothing makes a car look like a hooptie than the appearance of bad ball joints and unevenly worn tires.
