Her name is Sandy. I met her through a friend but I dont talk to her anymore. I told her about NT but she didnt really seem interested. I believe the car was a graduation gift and they had the interior all done up too. I got a up close look once, it's awesome for a girly car, but a little too much any other way.
Anywho about the track, probably wont be able to make it with the car (it figures right).
What happend was on the way back from Florida my Dad was driving it and after making a stop he heard a loud rattle noise. First thing he thought is that it might be the trans after those runs. So he had to wait there because he didnt want to drive it, and wait almost a whole day for my mom to leave and meet up with him (he left before she did/ they towed it down). So he was taking a look at it for T.C to make sure it wasnt the engine and he noticed the noise was coming from the S/C.
Well, me and a friend went to go take off the belt and bypass the S/C and start it to see if it was infact the S/C. When we got the belt off we noticed the pulley had A Lot of slop in it. T.C torqued it but I guess the 10 hour highway drive might have caused it to loosen and he didnt notice right away because the windows were down and radio+. So after taking off the pulley we saw it damaged the inside of it were it slides over the "key".
Believe it or not this is good news. We first thought it could have been the trans, then a bearing in the S/C (lots more $and time), but just a pulley is ok. So we need to order a new pulley/key from T.C, get it anodized and put it back on. Hopefully that will fix it. Cuz theres a couple cars out at the street races that I've had my eyes on (not that I would ever do such a thing) lol.
if you guys want to meet up or just meet down there on wednesday let me know my number is &#$ - &&! - %($@ or pm me. I'll try my hardest to make it, but I'm horible with remebering plans so.... Maybe I can have my dad tow the car down. We'll see.
