Back in the saddle again...
Haven't posted for a few days - computer problems (solved by finally buying
a new one. My old one was built at the end of the last century!!). Got that
solved, and been busy with getting the race car torn down and the rebuild
started. Here's the race recap I was going to post last Tuesday.....
Saturday was a mix of rain, sleet, snow, wrong tire choice, and too much
throttle in the wrong place.... But with the liberal application of a dead blow
hammer and a lot of duct tape, we were back out on track after missing our
qualifying session. From a distance, you couldn't even tell there was any
damage, but I've got a couple of weeks of sheet metal work and paint ahead.
Fortunately, the suspension survived intact. We even ran the fastest laps
of our race group on Sunday afternoon. We'll get it all back together between
now and mid-May for the Under 2 litre Trans Am Revival race the weekend
of the 17th.
