I really like CMP. I feel like I was learning fast and had a couple people say I was doing good for first trip out and on street tires. Next thing I know smoke everywhere. Stupid oil cooler blowing everywhere. I ended up borrowing trailer space and had to drive a friends Viper GTS back to Raleigh (I stole the Vipers trailer space). I had the best and worst experience ever today.

Well that's great you were having fun until the oil cooler blew and it sucks that your oil cooler blew! ;) :D Shame you had to drive a VIPER back to Raleigh! ;) :thumbsup: And YES I know what it's like to have an oil cooler blow but when mine went I went off track and smacked a tire wall! :( :( So things could have been worse! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :D

Things certainly could have gone worse. I just hope I got the car turned off fast enough not to damage anything. I will say this about the guys from the viper club they are a great bunch of people. I think everyone came by during cleanup to check on things and see how it was going. Driving the GTS back was a little awkward. It turns out I am the 3rd person to drive the car ever. Wow smacking the tire wall would have sucked I got lucky it happened in a slow section and not a straight. My tires were soaked in oil (along with everything else). I am a little bummed right now and have to find an oil cooler quick or at least get my BMWs brakes fixed so I can get to work Tuesday.

Call Kenny Brown they usually have them in stock and if you're an SCMC member you get a 15% discount on their parts. :D :thumbsup: Sorry to hear about the problems though!

I think I am going to check with Carolina Mustang first since they are right down the street from work. Thanks for listening to me vent a little. The only thing I am worried about is if I cooked a bearing. :(

Good luck getting the cooler back on and I hope there isn't any major damage inside! I was lucky mine was a slow leak so I didn't do any damage to my engine! :thumbsup:
