I've said it more than once.. The change in the car with a good suspension is unreal.
I'll have to have them done prior to the Mile run... don't want to be driving an unstable wing...

Amen Brother.

Looking forward to see how your cage turns out... I'm stashing some coin away for a cage/rollbar. I need figure out what the right safety measures are for my ultimate goals. I need a functional back seat when we take the family out for ice cream. So, I'm not sure how I want to do it.

No problem Bud. Keep me posted, since Pumpkin made it to the hoist yesterday I suspect it will be in the dealers hands by the end of next week. Not sure how long they will have Pumpkin to address the issues and whether or not we will be battling over the tranny. The wet weather season is pretty much on us now, more rainy days then dry ones.

Yeah, I tried but I don't think I'll be able to get up that way now before the snows create a problem...

I do appreciate the invite though...

Snow will not be the issue, just rain. It's more of a rain forrest up here in the Pacific Northwest. Portland weather will be about the same as Vancouver and Seattle. Still warm up here highs of 60+ lows 50's.

The runs start at 7:00 am, and will probably go all day... The best runs may be early that morning... I was thinking of leaving around 4:30 or 5:00 am from my house... Depends on if Debbie wants to go....

That's part of what I want to determine...

Pete, have you thought about approaching the guys building the formula one track and seeing if they are interested in building a two mile long stip of asphalt...or concrete... I believe there is room on the property and they could run 1/4 mile drag races most of the season and then host The Texas Mile...

I don't have the kind of contacts you do... and wouldn't know where to start... Austin has the support structure for something like this, and it could be a premier MotorSports Park...

Knee is getting better... hopefully I'll get a release to return to work when I see the doc in three weeks... Nov 21st...

The trip up north got cancelled due to scheduling conflicts and now the weather sux...I'm not driving up there through snow...

I'm currently trying to find some racing seats to install, which will negate needing to go up there anyway...

The wife is cool with me getting some, and I'm hoping I can find some Sparco Milano Prestige seats for the right price.... I also need to determine if they can be made to accomodate the five point harness with the anti-submarine strap...

Thanks for the check-up...
