Are you going to make it to the Fest...

Robert, I can't make it to CFIII this year unfortunately! I have two daughters in college and am on vacation with them at same time as the Fest... and they had other options for dear ol' Dad! I really want to attend next year. I am hoping they have it in Hawaii! Then I woke up.

In the meantime... to Brandi and you I say:

Ild rather go conservatively than go big and wrong on short time... And I do agree that last minute runs before a big event are nerve wracking... Anything major goes wrong and the car stays home... Ild still go but that would be a lil bummer...

Dang, that track is too far away for this close to departure time.... If I get on a track at all, It'll be San Antonio Raceway... Time will tell on that as well...

Rent the car from them for a week, do some minor maintenance... Is it too late to put your calipers back on if need be...

right now I have the all the stock calipers on the car. The rears are powderoated red to match the new fronts. So, worst case I roll to the fest with mismatched brake colors. and do the swap and Bruce raymonds shop when I get there.

Best case, everything gets here on time and I'm good to go

Well, worst case scenario, we'll be changing brakes in the parking lot at Indy... We have the technology and ability...

I just got back from filling both 15 lb nitrous bottles, and getting the windows in my truck tinted... Front driver and passenger door... well, that turned into let's darken all on them... So, we put tint on every window in the truck with the exception of the windshield... I think everyone sees a target on my forehead or something... actually, his truck was sitting next to mine in the work bay and I liked it... so, hey... >>>> and he made me a great deal...
