Punk Rock Chef,, the recap video

Jacob Meggers, our very own Punk Rock Chef has finished his recap video for the team, here’s a quick idea of how the weekend went,, at Punk Rock Speed!

If you like Jacob’s work, subscribe to his videos by clicking here!

We’ll see you at altamont with an operational car!

Yes, we’re operational. Subscribe to us over at Youtube. Have fun ignoring it! (watch the next video!)

Livery, I hate Livery!

Here’s the layered .pdf of the car (the file).  Check it out and give your drawing skills a go!

You’ve gone too far! Back up there!

It’s ALIVE!!!! (slightly)

Work, was definitely accomplished this week.

We got the engine to begin that wonderful belching noise that means, that some way, some how,, it could come to life!

Watch the video to get really excited about just how awesome it’s going to be!

Also, we finally got to meet our crew chief in person, he even approved of the car. Typically this wouldn’t be a big deal, but our crew chief is none other than racer Scott Schroeder, (he’s a little bit of awesome).

So check the video, think of pledging all your money to sponsor us for no good reason whatsoever, (seriously, others have!)

makin Z\'s the hard way

Tires!! (We got the Special Round ones!)

More Tires at Tires to Go!

Well today, on my way to get fitted at the dentist for a face fixing device (apparently they don’t come in size “missing a brain”) I picked up the tires for our racer to be.

At Tires to Go in West Sacramento (we can’t recommend them enough!) Thanks to Dave Komaromi (a noted commenter) and the rest of the gang, we’re now set up with 6 T-rated tires that will fit our erstwhile racer.

I foolishly didn’t write down the guys names (why I didn’t do that I’ll never know) but I did get some mighty fine pics of the gang at Tires to Go, so if you’re in West Sacramento (3001 Evergreen Avenue 95619 is the address) please stop by and buy a whole bunch of tires, they’ll thank you for it, and we’d really appreciate it too!

Tires at Tires to go!

It also looks like we’ll be going with the standard Z seat (a nice one for something older than some of our racers!) and having a removable steering wheel (it’s a safety device right?!) Oh it is, because if it’s missing you can’t control the car! Perfect! (At least I convinced me right?)

Murilee does it again, we’re paid up, and the cage is on the way!

So special “friend of team” Murilee Martin at Jalopnik (he’s not special in that needs a helmet way, more of a “helpful human who is cool way”) . Though yes, at the race we will have a picture of Murilee in a helmet (maybe even when he’s racing!) Murilee has found on one of his many junkyard forays (I’m surprised they haven’t offered him a yearly pass, no one goes there more, or sends them more traffic!)

We’ve got a new bumper sticker up (to complement the original (get it here!) (don’t worry, more to come)).Bumpersticker2

We’re paid up for the race (don’t worry Shaun, we’ll all pay ya back!)

Also, our autopower roll cage is ordered. Oh yeah,, protecting the team with the power of steel!!! Get your Autopower cage here!

Next task, to get the stuff in the Junkyard Murilee found (don’t touch it anyone else!) Also to order a race seat and safety belts.

Forza Porco!!

Today’s update-Jalopnik, new crew chief, work accomplished, still need,,,

First of all,, Thanks Murilee!!

That’s Murilee Martin at Jalopnik.com he’s written a bit about us (and our fun logo).

Next, this weekend we got some serious work done (yipee!) Check the pics here.

New (Used) radiator -in

Old AC condensor, heater core, dashboard- out

front lights -out

Interior, carpet, passenger seat, general schmutz-out

We have a special announcement as well, we have a new crew chief (not Chef, that’s already Jacob Meggers) named Scott Schroeder.

Who’s that you say? Well so far our team Nurse/Racer Jukka Valkonen (to be profiled later) has brought in Scott with these few words about him

“He races professionally (porsche), and trains drivers. this is a guy who has been racing since he was 15 having gone through the race schools, the BMW F1 development program."

So to recap: New crew chief Scott Schroeder (awesome), Murilee wrote about us at Jalopnik (Sweet!), parts are starting to get on the car!

Oh yeah, and tomorrow we’re buying our roll cage!

Here we go!!
