    X90 Hydraulic Handbrake Installed

    got any pics of it installed? According to UPS tracking number, my ASD ebrake will come in today. Just curious to see how you mounted it.
  19. sick dude! That wall ride would have been sick if you wouldn't have spun after
  20. this update can be found on my website. http://www.matsbaribeau.com/ As many of you are aware, we had an encounter with a wall at Icar. We still drove two events afterwards with the car bent and lets just say it wasn’t driving like it used to. Well the month of August has been slow for us which allowed us to do much needed repairs on the car before Hold The Line Round 3 which is September 10th. We just got the car back today from the frame shop. The guys over at Fix Auto in Kingston did an amazing job! Now its a waiting game until the remainder of our parts come in from Japan.
  21. Standings from HTL have been updated. We are still in 2nd place after 2 rounds. Next round is september 11th at Englishtown, NJ. http://www.matsbaribeau.com/?p=124
  22. i kept blowing out BKR7E all the time and switch to NGK 8 racing plugs. Let me know if you want me to get you the code. I would usually foul the BKR7E every round before i switched to the 8 and now with the 8 i can do 3-4 events before having to change them
  23. what kind of plug are you running?
