Not much happened today, so I got proper pictures.

Also Lane or anybody else who might know, best way to repair the parking brake? From what I can tell, there's a plastic rod that connects to another one with what looks like a ring holding them together. That ring is broken.

I can't say I've seen/read failures on them, so I can't add any enlightenment.

Have you checked the tech sections of LS1GTO.com If it has happened, then you'll find it there.

Did a quick search on ls1gto and I found it. Took me 10 minutes to fix it. What happens is that over time the plastic rod that clips to the ratcheting mechanism pops out which causes it to not lock. I drilled a hole and tied it up with mechanics wire. And for the first time ever, I have a car where every single thing works.

And it has the proper cylinder count, transmission choice and funnels it's power to the right axle. ;)

I haven't really done too much to the car lately other than oil and trans fluid change, but I did take it to the track and I ran a horrible time, and I'm pretty sure it was from the shifter and it's long throws. If I wasn't missing third I'd miss fourth. This caused me to do my second mod.

Before

After

It's called Lou's short stick and it made a huge difference for me in regards to shift speed and not missing gears. And while I was at it I got a 2 pool ball knob since it's blue and matches the stitching on the boot.

Also got some pictures from the track and some randoms.
I was car 165 and this was my best pass

Now that the Grand Prix is gone I have a couple things planned for this, just a matter of me finding the time to do them.

Dude you have no idea. I spent like an hour trying to get it to be right side up and because of how it's threaded it kept landing that way. My level of car OCD with this thing is really high.

This happened today.

I have one more thing up my sleeve but I won't say much till I get it finished (Matt knows what it is). And then after that I'm leaving it alone for a while.

Use a lock nut under the shift ball. Lock it down where ever you want.
