That would be great! That site has the registration and hotel info on it. If you register put ACE5 as your car club. That way you'll be parked with us.

Wish things were better for you out on the rig. Once a few get disgruntled (rightly so even) it seems to infect others quickly.

Sweet... maybe some new Aggie jokes for the slow days.
Nope, Mine goes down in front of the dash.... It does not integrate into the dash like Speedsters... Hey, I'm all ears for Aggie Jokes...

I'll visit the idea with the wife... She may want to have some visit time with her brother... or I may make a solo trip if I can work it out...

Now, I need to find a trailer... I have access to a couple of them, but I want a specific one.... and it's 7K... bit pricey...

As for the disgruntlement, we don't feed too much off each other... if you whine in front of any others, then you get ridden like a stick horse... So, we usually just have a cuss fest for a few seconds and go on about work... The only up side is they dont understand the workings of a rig well enough to determine if we are actually doing what htey request or not.... We can lead them around by the nose and fill them with ideas and prohibitions to why something has to be done a certain way but the end result wiull be the same.... lol... the part that drives me crazy is they want a written procedure for everything we do.... everytime....

The reason for this is in about four months, they are supposed to take over the rig and only essential personnel will remain... OIM, SubSea, Barge Captain and a few others... The rest of the rig will be run by Nationals... uhhhhh, I won't be here even though I'm subsea... We are already heavily segregated and I don't treat anyone as badly as they treat us.... I was raised better than that...

and we have too much fun messing with each other to let things bother us too much...

There were three Aggies huddled around each other at a local bar. All of a sudden, they jumped up and yelled,
"Yeah, 45! 45!" The bartender goes down to them and asks, "45? What are you guys so excited about?"
One of the Aggies speaks up: "We just finished a jigsaw puzzle. The box said 2 to 3 years, and we did it in 45 days!"

Ok,

It's official,

I finally got a vendor to reply to me about some wheels purely for racing...

Matt at East Coast Supercharging has done me right on a set of Weld RT-S 17 in. wheels with a black face and polished barrel.

17 x 10 for the rear, and 17 X 5 for the fronts... with polished Gorilla Lug nuts...

I am ordering a set of adjustable lower control arms, probably BMR, and 28 x 10 x 17 Inch Hoosier Slicks, and M&H Skinnies for the front.

These tires will not see the street as they are race only tires...
