Hello hello. As some of you might know, I am driving cross country to LA tomorrow night. My friend will co-pilot and we are taking a small sleep break in Oklahoma City to rest up since he is working tomorrow morning and I'll be running around do any last minute prep.

We were able to put on the blue painters tape on the car and it turned A LOT of heads. I installed all of the gadgets into the car and I have to check tire pressures and fluid levels before we set off.

I use an app called WAZE which is user based to report traffic, accidents, hazards, police, etc and they have a feature called "follow my drive" which allows anyone with the link to follow where you are driving. With that said, I will post a link here tomorrow night so you can follow me driving from NYC to OKC and then another link for OKC to LA. Both of those trips will be done with stops only for gas.


Video!

Enjoy guys

BTW: DMAX will be going. He will be in my trunk being fed through the ski-pass. Any posts you see from him here after 2100 EST tomorrow will be from his phone.

Overall cost was about 880 in gas and 450 in hotels. Wednesday night the 15th and back home at 0200 on Saturday the 25th.

Enjoy this vid. We drove over 100 hours and I put together some clips to make 27 mins worth

i'll definitely be following you on Waze. How many miles do you have on your car and what have you done in preparation for this trip?

It should be a fantastic trip. Good luck man. I did my Westerly RI to San Jose CA road trip and it was a blast. Hope you have a radar detector

Pretty much everything is repaired on the car, nothing I mean nothing is worn out. 125k miles.

Just got out of the shop for the following;

- Oil pan gasket
- Oil filter housing gasket
- Two power steering hoses
- Vanos hose
- Oil change
- Water pump
- Thermostat
- Coolant flush
- Rtabs
- Engine mounts
- Ebrake lines
- Alignment
- Voltage regulator
- Differential fluid


The car is running beautiful man. You have no idea.

See you here, weirdo.
Love you.

My car has the same mileage as yours - 125K, but that's about to change!

So you're taking US40 through New Mexico and Arizona? Sweet drive!

I was waiting for this thread. Make sure you pop the ski pass and toss a slice of pizza every 24 hours for our special friend!

Drive safe and don't pick up hitchhikers
Ah, forgot to mention that. Must update first post :eeps:
