naw man, that wasn't even your fault. Everyone knows it was all Pink Flea's doing. Seriously though, show all those trailer queens how a real sports car is supposed to be used.

ya I was there, I was parked next to garfinkles once they finished moving the cars all around in the 40th anny (not the 40th that had the fireballs on it) there in front of the building. I think a friend of yours also gave my wife a ride to the store while I was in that seminar.

Exactly what I was saying - my cousins Supra was a Turbo cover car about two years ago, but it was a trailer queen 1200whp and never saw real use. My old Rx8 was an HCI cover car and the owner at the time said they couldnt believe the car was driven daily...

Just goes to show, you can have your cake and eat it too....

I think we tempted fate enough on Friday evening. ME driving in a race seat, leaning up the whole way, on 1/2 slicks, on a wet road. But I was surprised at how well it stuck to the road. Too bad I didn't get to drive it on the gap on dry road. Next year you need to bring your interior driver's seat, so I can see out the windshield.

WELL.....

I think the plan at this point is to get Jims car done so he can bring it from Saint Louie.. and I can bring the E Prod car.

But ya know.. I was thinking of bringing BOTH race cars, if I can find or borrow a trailer to fit both of them.

I would of course need someone to drive the less cranky of the two. /HINT


Now to get kicking on overdrive on both of the project-mobiles that are in the garage. (EP and 20B)

The worst part.. I am about to buy a Mill for the garage, and could use that on some hardened parts for the E-Prod car.. as well as part of the shock/spring setup... or part of the clutch setup. /cry
I need to come up with like 8K to get the last few hard parts for that thing.

Sounds like fun projects. Good luck, I hope you complete them by next year. Then what will you do after the 20B is done?

Once that beast is gone, and on the way to St. Louis.. I have a couple projects in mind.
Other then the E Prod car.
One involves a New ZX-10R engine, and some tubing, and carbonfiber. /nod I may have mentioned it at DGRR. I may just sell the engine though.. I have wood to build up a 20B in PP N/A. I may finish up the E-Prod car.. and then swap in a 20B PP.
That or simply race for a season.
