Car is doing great. We are still dialing it in. We had to adjust the rear shocks a bit. But, they are now back and ready to rock and roll.

We will have it ready for C5 Fest.

Have you had the chance to street drive it any of late? If so, how is that?

We have driven it on the street. We have to be careful to keep the right foot light on the go pedal or it gets kind of squirrelly on street pavement. It needs a track for the back wheels to stick. But, it is really quite easy to drive if you keep the throttle at reasonable levels for the street.

But, once we finish dialing it in for the track, I have asked the tuner to put a street tune in it for 93 octane gas so I can drive it on some cruises and at car shows.

How did it do at Atlanta? I thought I saw the breakdown and it read B. Williams and had a 10 something next to it. I can't see your car going that slow unless its on 4 cylinders!

You can put 93 in it and safely put it around the way it is now. That's what I usually do. But Ted did give me bigger pulleys and a specific 93 tune.

Just got back from 3 weeks in Alaska. Whew! It was an amazing trip and we are very tired.

I've not had a lot of internet access or time to post in that time. Now that I'm back, I'll post some updates soon... after I get all the laundry done!

We are going to do one more test and tune before C5Fest next week. We had broken and axle at the last test session we had. Also, Mark's vette had an engine fire the same day. So, we decided not to go to Atlanta. Mark's trailer with all the goodies on board are our main pit support tools. So, we decided not to go to Atlanta.

We not have new axles (thanks to DSS!) and we have dialed in the struts to help with the axle issues. Ah... the fun of having a race car.

I am getting very excited to come to C5F to see you guys again. The guys from IPS will be camping at the track, so come look for the big motorhome with the trailer attached. Mark Carlyle will be hauling my car and one of us will drive his Camaro (he is going to show it. He has an awesome 5th gen!).

Thanks to the guys at IPS, expecially Tom, thank to Patrick for tuning the car, and thanks to Mark for helping me out. I really appreciate everything you guys do. Oh and thanks to Bob W. for risking life and limb driving my car!

Thank you!

Hubby just bought me my bday present. Been asking for this for a few months. Very out of the ordinary for me. I usually ask for electronics!




Now I just have to figure out how to get it out of the bed of my truck and into my workshop.

Plans are getting finalized. I think we'll be leaving Columbus very early Friday morning to drive to the Fest and be there in time for test and tune/qualifying mid morning.
