Green Stone Brewing produced two batch's of Thunder Struck Pumpkin Ale (20 gallons) for 2012. I'll bottle a few litres to haul south next year for a event your attending.. Bottle conditioned for several months will be a treat.

Pumpkin is all tucked away for the winter now.:( On the winter to do list is: second and final attempt to install 2-step and line lock, front rotors and coil-overs, cat delete and JRE tune.

Wow, I hate that you have to Store the Pumpkin prior to Halloween... but the new mods will make bringing her out in the Spring so special...

This is a brand piece from Lingenfelter and apparently once this is wired in to the clutch safety switch you can then use a 2-Step. Waiting for more info and installation PDF from Jason at Lingenfelter. Finally I'll be able get my 2-Step working for next season.

Pretty slick device there, were you having issues with the 2 step in the past Brian?

I bought a MSD 2-Step quite a while ago, but no way to activate it because of the can bus system. Unless you want to try and crawl under the dash and install a micro switch on the clutch pedal.

I don't think the box supports that, but I do manage no lift shift from 1st to 2nd without a box as it is. But the box does activate the 2 step and gives me adjustable release point on the clutch switch. Still waiting for Lingenfelter to supply the 2-step box.:(

Took advantage of some Black Friday pricing and picked up a set of DBA 5000 two piece rotors and a fresh set off Hawk HP Plus pads for the front of Pumpkin. The road course action has taken their toll on the stock front rotors.

Cool sounds good, we can crack some taps. That was nice of you to make the trek up to Seattle to visit with us. Still planning on running the Ridge again. Try to plan it so Colleen can come to if possible.

Progress is being made on repairing our Turbo car, after the crash in May of 2011. Soon we will have two cars to choose from in 2013.
