Question on seats

The seat rule has two main purposes. 1. A "stock" car shouldn't look like a race car. Noobs shouldn't show up an an autocross and see people running stock with full race seats and get the impression that they need to do that kind of thing to be competitive in stock. 2. A driver who's willing to give...

Just a couple minutes in the morning light with a mirror and a flashlight identified the unplugged Cam Position Sensor. Plugged it in, and all is well!

Ahem... "The Fit is Go!" :salute:

And thanks for lunch, Doug!

The clutch disk and the important parts of the flywheel are undamaged, no problems there. The outside of the clutch cover it beat to death, but not enough to be a structural problem. I would have opted to replace it, but Soraya doesn't have the money to spend... and it's her car. We just installed a...

I'm running in the PAX class... with a Mirage. PAX is not friendly to the Mirage. I ain't gonna win anything.

So, whatever. We can swap rides if you want. I've driven your car before, liked it!

Last call, get registered!

And I'm still open for a co-drive. Challenge me, teach me, or learn from me... I don't care which!

I'm gonna make a T-Shirt for Soraya: "Keep Calm and Keep Turning Wrenches" Okay, so it was a long day. 8am to 7:30pm. I'll try to recap as best I can, but I didn't exactly take notes. Nor did I take a lot of pictures this time. 8am I got out there, moved cars around and got started. Soraya had dropp...

Buuuuuump. I had dinner at Craft Street tonight. (don't act so surprised) Cathy had the Cajun shrimp and grits special, it's REALLY good. Previously had the Italian Sausage and Shrimp flatbread special (sound weird... isn't), it's also really good. Me, I just had a Yippie Hippie Chicken salad, which...

Soraya just dropped off some of the parts. Water pump and stuff. So, I can be installing some parts on the new engine first thing. Could be doing it now. But, I'm like on the couch and stuff. With a little motivated effort and some luck, we'll get this sucker done tomorrow! To do: - Install new oil ...

8am is the plan, but we can't do anything until Soraya arrives with parts. Well... I guess we could move stuff around and be ready. She's supposed to bet here at 8, though.

Fun day today. I'm gonna upload some photos, then discuss.

We had plenty of hands this morning, and got to the point I expected to get to. There were 4 of us, and including our lunch break, we probably spent about 5 hours working on the car. If we were professional mechanics... let's just say we wouldn't be buying a new car this year. But, for the hacks tha...
