The owner of the shop asked me what I wanted to do with the motor. I am thinking about telling the kid the sale is off and selling it to the shop owner or trading it for some of the labor I owe on the car. I think it will work better in the long run if I do that

What say you guys?
Inb4 something happens and he blames you for selling him a bad block

I guess it all depends on how much credit the shop will give you. It's always good to have some rep at the shop

I've had a good few people interested in buying my current built short block (not the sleeved/o'ringed one). My buddy wanted it, but like always, he wanted to pay me in installments over like a year, so nah. Another friend wanted it after he blew his built motor in his WRX, but 1.) He doesn't have anywhere near enough to buy it, and 2.) He blew his motor by running it without a tune. Not just a bad tune (), but no tune at all. The shop and I both told him that he really needs to get a tune on there, and he was like "Nah it's been running fine without one", so I'd rather not sell the block to a kid who's gonna run it without a tune and have him blow it up.

Another buddy of mine thinks he might have cracked a ring in his STi. He still needs to do a compression test, but if he did, he said he'll buy my block for $2,000 straight up, which is what I'm asking

There were a couple people online who expressed some interest, but nothing solid. And lastly, another friend of mine, the same guy who bought my 35R kit, wants to buy it, and offered me $2,200 for it, because he doesn't want to see it go to a bad home. He may as well throw a built block in there if he wants to run high boost on that 35R

Gotta judge the factors.
Sell to kid; Make more?
Sell to shop; Earn cred, get credit towards labor, build relationship

I've been in this situation and more often the shop route is the better way to go, my personal relationships with shops in the area that i've built on my own under my father are worth more to me than that cash in the pocket. Knowing you're welcome at a shop is a very good feeling, free advice is invaluable. Like when i was deleting the 3rd post off my wing, went into the bodyshop bull****ted and said hi to the guys, then got an in depth process for how to delete it, then got told theyd let me spray some things there and show me the ropes with painting.
cool. I am heavily taking the decision serious. The kid is going to be disappointed anyways because he is just throwing **** in there and not doing the essential prep work. I think its coming to more than what he wants to spend. Idk. I am just going to talk to john first and see if he was serious about the motor and then if he really wants to do it I am going to tell the kid I got almost twice the offer from someone I knew and havent seen in a long time. Gave me cash right on the spot. Then just say sorry.

Ugh... simple **** man this kid kinda doesnt get it

also in the event that I got pulled over for dicking around in the snow should i just hand the guy my gold metal family member PBA card (State police though), or would there be a wise way to bull**** it, oh officer i lost control in this parking lot.... (that doesnt seem good).

With the amount of dicking around I do in parking lots when it snows i think its only a matter of time before i catch some **** for it.

Stop being a *****, if you wanna have fun and do illegal **** do it. Don't look for an excuse ahead of time for you breaking the law. If you don't wanna be in trouble then don't risk it and **** around.

Yeah, if you want to dick around go to an empty parking lot at night and dick around. If a cop comes over, tell him it's the parking lot or the streets.
I was out for a few hours last night

Also, change spots if you're going to be out longer than a couple drifts. Easiest way to get caught is to blow up your spot.

I was making runs late one night in a big parking lot that had a track a lot of cops actually practiced on. Someone called the cops. Car came out and gave me a bunch of flak, but I don't think he could legally ticket me

As far as springs go, would you guys say RCE blacks/yellows would be a good way to go? Car is my DD and coils won't be in my budget for a while.

RCE is great stuff, I recommend it if you can't afford coils.

I would cite you as reckless driving.

The best thing to do is go to an area where there isn't a lot of people (like the big rig area you spoke of). Only stay there for about 15-20 minutes then find a new area. Depending on how close a patrol is it would usually take 8-12 minutes for an emergency response. However, a patrol could be around the corner if they're dispatched so be mindful. Don't stay in an area too long.

If you are caught with your pants down just be polite. Hand him your information and be nice. Apologize for losing your sense of responsibility and you only wanted to have a bit of fun in a reasonable area away from the public. If you convey enough sincerity and the guy isn't a dick he might let you go. You have to understand that there is a high possibility of getting a ticket since you're doing something that is against local ordinances. Just be aware that you do that you accept the likeliness of getting in some trouble :/
