There is a new CAN display that I'll be getting as well...

I'll be heading to BlackJack speed shop probably monday to get the new tire mounted... I was headed that way yesterday, had the wheel and tire off the car and in the truck, but it got to late and jet lag was catching up to me, so I decided to wait...

I also need to meet up with Pete for an alignment... Maybe monday or tuesday... Where will be decided by availability of an alignment rack...

It's coming together, but why is it always a thrash right at the end to get everything ready... lol... oh well... If all else fail's, I'll put the car on the trailer and throw hte clothes in the back, and head out... Some of my priority list has gone by the wayside... I'll take care of registration stuff after the mile... Most probably wont be driving her on the street before then anyways...
Hey Bud, speaking form experience getting race cars ready.......................there never really ready there is always some little thing to do. Good Luck.

Well I'm willing to hire him as my Texas guide for the weekend. I'll give him $20 a day with a $5 per meal food allowance. Oh! I have a health plan also, it consists of Advil or Tylenol, no more than 2 pills a day though.

There is balance in the universe and Roberts racer's luck is long over due. I feel this is Roberts year. We know that his car is as solid as a Chevy rock. He and Corey have built the most reliable power that Robert has brought to the mile. My guess is that Robert can nail a 200 MPH run at 3/4 throttle. With that run in the book he can let it all hang out. IMHO.

May God be with you on your mile runs and watch over all the racers at the mile. Be fast. Be safe. Vaya con Dios my friend.

Any car that can run 200mph is very cool.
If they can do it in one mile, that's super car territory.
If they can kick 200's ass and rocket past... I can't think of an appropriate word to describe that car/driver, maybe something like ...



Best of luck to you & your team Robert, between Corey and his gang watching the drivetrain, and Pete watching over the bouncy parts, I have every confidence this is gonna be your weekend

I may be way off here, this is a WAG... (wild ass guess) but I'm thinking it's a TT ZL1, built by ADM... and if so, It'll be bad to the bone for sure...
