Well I had a great time the half day I was able to run the car. It was good to see old friends. It was a planned day, but didn't know if I was going to run till I was there. Work is just killing all the fun lately, and I had only slept 12hrs in three days. This is normal for me, but still exhausting. The car ran ok, but kept throwing codes for the CPS and the fans. I went out first session on my 4yr old R6's, and ran with my good friends modded C6. Not bad for a guy that's been on track only twice in four years. The codes popped up again. But really had no time to work on the car for the first two sessions. After the TT download I only had time to TQ the wheels than back in the car. The second session went well, but I'm leaving a lot of time on the track being a bit rusty. But it was fast enough to sit 3rd 1:56.8 on the AI grid behind the two agent47 cars. Not to shabby considering I didn't tune the car for the stock bore, aligned it or put it on the scales for cross weights. I ran only half of the 3rd session when the SES went off again. Besides I was tired, it was 100deg, and I still had to load up and unload at home. I did a little poking around at the CPS, they are not wireless! It helps to plug it in. I had to get some help from a buddy to find where the two different places for codes on the fans. One was off, the other wasn't.

Well it's been about two years since I ran the bird in AI. It's a long story if you don't know. Anyway I took the car out to BRP in Nov and ran it in TT, and blew the motor up in the 3rd session on Sat. I wasn't to upset though. If some really bad stuff didn't go down at Fontana two years ago, it might have let go on the speedway(150mph) there on Sun. That would have hurt alot! I just pick up a 98 corvette long block for $1400 with 114t miles on it. I start a tread in the engine section on the basic mods to it. I'm not doing a full rebuild since I'll most likely never race the car in AI again.

Any way I e been doing alot of Jeepin with a $800 93 ZJ. A grand cherokee guys. I've spent two years of race budget on the thing as of now. It's a lie of course, when the suspension on it cost more than the AI car.

I still have the black firebird also, it really just needs a few good days to finish the small stuff, exhaust, and the Koni DA's rebuild.

I'll post up a few pic's, and see who is still around here.

I hope you all have a great time with friends and family.

Don't eat to much, you'll have to buy a bigger race seat!
