    Where\'s Spickler?

    Haven't seen him on here for ages. Is he still alive and kicking? Last update was what...somewhere around 6 months ago or so? Is the Potent Rodent still running or is it still dead from the knocking incident?

    Still dead..the 496 is K.O. but the 540 short block is sitting in his garage and I think he just needs the heads back from the machine shop. That'll take care of the motor. I also think Shawns has ALL the parts together for the 4L80-E, WMS 3:1 203/205 doubler too. Just need to get his driveshaft changed and get the exhaust done too...

    He also has his 2002 TransAm motor that he his building: turbo'd 6.0...I haven't talked to him for a while so I don't know what the deal is on that motor. He has the turbo kit and the block and most of the rotating assembly but I have no clue whats been done in terms of machine work to date...

    I think it is the lack of the aforementioned money that is causing the process of building TWO stupid-insane motors concurrently to be a very long and arduous task /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Hell all this talking about the dude has got me wondering what the hell he is really up to...I guess I will call him tomorrow and tell him to get his ass on here /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Re: Where\'s Spickler?

    Seen him at his party last night. He is pretty busy chasing snatch these days. I guess the motors and cash seem to have burnt him out /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I would be surprised if the Rodent was rolling by summer /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif But when it does I feel sorry for the asphalt under them tires /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif I told him we would get a crew together for a long weekend when he has all the parts together. There nis too much work for 1 person to do,motor,auto conversion,doubler,springs,etc..... I guess a list like that would be hard to get motivation tooo... /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif Anyways he is alive and healthy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Good to hear the news. Just wondered about him lately as he hasn't replied to anything on this site.
