go to the grocery store, buy a gallon of water, empty it out. fill it, condition it, put it in your treatment container. make a mark on the outside of the treatment container for what a gallon is :)

RB's and the 2JZ's are probably 2 of the best engineered motors ever made. Both capable of over 900 crank HP on stock bottom end, talk about over engineered.

My craze recently has been drifting. The art of slideways. I'm thinking about picking up a 180sx or old corolla that is a beater, fixing it up just enough that it is not a rust bucket and learn the art myself.

I do RC (radio control) drifting already, I came in 2nd in the points event in the last competition down here.

Hoenstly don't worry about it. Try not to let it happen again but I think mostly everyone has had a betta with a torn fin.

Just do the salt bath like mentioned above and add some salt to the tank every time you clean it until it is fully healed

Betta have probably the more delicate fins, atleast to my knowledge. just accidentally getting it caught in a siphon can rip some of them

Your DSM is sweet! The 1g's don't crank walk as bad as the 2g's though :) Holy giant turbo! why not ball bearing?

Now that 240... mmmmmmm. The body kit is a bit much for me. I really like the s15 chassis as is, maybe some mild side skirts and a small lip in the front and rear. beautiful blue, close to what my MSP was. The exhaust note from the dyno pulls however. /drool

If you do not have a large enough container for a gallon of water, do what i said with a gallon form the grocery store. drain it, fill it with tap water, add the tsp of salt (already dissolved, i use a shot glass to dissolve), add the water treatment, mix well then fill your smaller container with the salt bath mixture ;)

Sounds great! when he is all better you can use a few drops of bettafix and a pinch of salt every water change too as precautionary measures.

Don't forget your daily salt bath's until he shows definite signs of healing, then you can stop with them and let him finish healing in his home.

Welp...we werent concerned about the BB or Not thats just how we picked this one up. We can make anything work! WE were running 10.0 on a stcok head stock block and stock AUTO tranny we pulled from the junkyard on just a 60-1!

I never cared for the body kit on the car either, but over all its still pretty sweet!

I plan on leaving work in 30 mins and heading straight there! I wish i wouldve thought logically about filling up the gallon! LOL i think i was tooooo in shock about my poor earl! Earl- names after the BEST "AN" fittings in the world!
