Headin to AZ Tomorrrow

So the trailer is almost packed, car is strapped, and I'm almost ready to drive 1700 miles.

Narrowed it down between a couple houses in either Stanfield or Casa Grande.

One of the questions I do have though, who in the hell do ya'll get internet through? I've called ***, Comcast, Verizon, and none of them offer high speed internet in Stanfield or Casa Grande.

Not 100% sure about Case Grande but when I lived in Mesa, we used ***. My buddy lives in Arizona City and he gets *** and youre in between the 2, so I would assume ***.

Why Stanfield or Casa Grande?

Stanfield? Population 1000. lol
I'm pretty sure there isn't any internet down there. Its mostly a trailer camp.
Casa Grande probably has Comcast, though the vast majority of people there are still on dial-up.

Looking closer, the house is towards Arizona City, and it has QWest Internet available(is it any good? LOL).

As long as its a decent connection, I'm not too worried.

Hopefully the roads aren't too bad either, cause otherwise I'm gona bottom out on everything.


Also, where is a good place to get my fenders rolled? Once I put the new spacers on, I'm definitely gona need a roll and possible new suspension adjustments.

Qwest is going to be a DSL internet connection. As far as rolling your fenders one of the guys on Arizona Mazda Club.com has one. I'll see if I can figure out who it is and let you know.

Yeah I had been looking at their(QWest) site, and they show a 20MBs connection available. If that is the case, and it actually is a fast DSL connection, then I'll be happy. I do alot of gaming on my computer and upload videos so a faster connection the better.


Also, where would be a good place to either find an aftermarket under tray, or a stock one. Mine has been ripped to shreds from old roads back home.

One last question, is there any kind of noise restrictions as a state law, or is it just based upon the area you are in. My exhaust is almost as loud as some sport bikes with D&D Mufflers and Sidewinders.

As far as DSL speed, 20mb, that's going to be MAX speed on a great day.

Under tray? BHR can get you a new factory one below retail. Andf you'll need it when summer comes for the added cooling ability.

As for your exhaust,, if they haven't stopped Flashwing I think you'll be OK. AZ is not that bad on vehicle laws. If you can drive a Prostock Dragster down the road, licensed. And you can! I don't think you have much to worry about.

It all sounds good. Once we get moved in, I guess I'm going to have to find BHR and take a look around.

Are there any kind of hang-out/cruise spots or is that more towards Phoenix/Tuscon. I know we had some back in Indianapolis.

I don't know what Ray Hill's schedule is but PM him if you're interested in visiting. I'm working my day job all week but I'm sure you'll find Easy_E hanging around as well!

Quest is great internet, I switched from cable to quest dsl once and it actually uploads way faster than cable. The download speed was less, but not bad.
