Hey, sorry for not posting - been out of town. Doin' some military type stuff. Anyway, no crazy updates other than the TC - (Torque Converter) will be done and the tranny shipped back to NRE for installation. Then....finally....road tuning. But... I will be on vacation up north during that time so I will have to arrange for shipping while away.

Glad everyone here is still crazy as ever...

Uh... definitely NOT!!

Just that business has to come before play and it has been pretty insane here. Once we get just a tad closer I'll give you a sneak preview of some of the cool stuff we have been working. Think small, sneaky and very, very fast.

As you can see we have a slight affliction with speed.

So when the SST comes home you won't be able to greet it and take it out for a welcome home drive??? That's gotta suck big time! Try not to pull your hair out.

If you burn it hard enough can you change the weather pattern and get some rain to Texas?

From 2.5 feet to 50 feet. That one is your height. Kind of remote control - you could drive it from where you are in Michigan (or anywhere in the world) as we watch it chase stuff here, or it doesn't need you at all. It can drive itself - it's fairly intelligent.

Obstacle avoidance system? Or pre-planned route?

That's a pretty high tech piece of equipment..... dare I say very cool? I think I got the wrong education. That would be so fun to work on things like that!

Yes. Can't comment on a lot of details right now, just some generics.
