    ABR's random pics of stuff in the shop

    I figured sometimes its good to show off random stuff we have floating around we are working on. Some go-fast stuff. Click here to enlarge Some regular car stuff. Click here to enlargeSome oddball stuff.Click here to enlarge

    Not that we are some badass or anything, there are way nicer looking and more equipped shops than us- but just to have fun, spark conversation and entertainment value.

    I was sulking during a sand storm, over something that wasn't going right on the Ultra4 car I sponsored.... can't remember what it was, but I remember being pissed off over it lol
    OF COURSE, one of my pit crew was poking the bear and taking pics of me trying to cool off lol

    This is a buddy of mine coming up back door. I was shooting with an AMAZING 70-200 Nikon DX lens on my D7000 body (I'm selling the body and a 35mm 1.8 if anyone is interested)..... so I have about 30 shots of this roll over, these are every 5th frame (!).....

    Wow, the pics of that rollover are freaking perfect...I mean damn! That camera is amazing, NIKON has the BEST sensors IMO when it comes to picking up color and contrast. Just amazing.

    What's this? Well, it's a home made gasket we are replacing on a recent turbo installation from "those guys". A gasket that costs about $2.93 to replace. It goes on the drain for a turbo in a 335. Why would you not spend the 3 bucks to replace this? The original gasket is steel and doesn't leak. This is what happens when you go to sub par shops because they are the cheapest..... or you listen to people on the forums and don't do your research. We are authorized vendors forVargas TurboCharger Technologies for a reason. We do quality work and do NOT cut corners. Especially $3.
