Robert, glad you the wife and Brandi were able to make it back home. I'm sure corey will make the magic happen again. I'm interested to find out why you own Four turbos instead of a warranted two of them but, I will hold my opinion until I hear the final result. The car is a beast and I STILL NEED A RIDE!!

Robert. It was great hanging out with you again...had a great time. I'm disappointed we didn't get to race down the track, but maybe we can run at the Camaro Nationals later this year!

Robert may be wondering the same thing, but has too much class to talk about it. I'd also be very interested to find out the cause of the failures, and why he had to purchase two turbos after less than a week of use.

I have to give kudos to Robert on this weekend's events. He had the most optimistic, calm, selfless attitude about the problems he had this weekend. And Robert, you couldn't possibly ask for a more understanding, supportive wife! This was most definitely a weekend I'll remember forever. Now, get Brandi back to her full potential again, and let's go hit the track soon!

No, since I got the two off the display motor, J.R. Kept my old ones and
Put them back on the display motor. he is going to send them back to Precision for the rebuild. I hope they have already shipped as I'm writing this...

J.R. Said he would keep me informed about the shipping info and progress as they are rebuilt. I will have them shipped directly to me when the rebuild is complete.

I'm sure Scott/Justin at Precision would be more than willing to keep me in the loop as well.

Hey Robert,

Just checking in. It was a pleasure meeting you this weekend. I'm glad you were able to get your car up and running again. I look forward to another 1 and 2 gear roasting session on the way to the gas station.

Hope you made it home safe!

Hey brother, the pleasure was mine as well.
I did roast a bit... Of metal, oh well, I'm going to see what it takes to fix the synchs and improve the shifts, or start looking for a race ready transmission to put in... I want to stay manual, but... Time will tell...

You should check out the transmission in this corvette. I wonder if his tires are bolted on? They sure wind up!
