Groj Day - Feb 1 - Let's do stuff!

I went to Jamaica 50 years ago when they still had public hangings. They probably still do. Awesome climate with the tradewinds.

Hint. Your Registration button took me to a very weird place. The above works.

FAST Autocross - Dec 28 - Lakeland

I was under the impression I was co-driving with The Mayor, but he hasn't signed up yet. As such, I might need to call in a raincheck from one of you generous souls who've offered to share your car... Time will tell. Sorry Steve. I had high hopes like the Boeing Space Capsule. Got into orbit quickl...

If you'd like to pay me 10 bucks to show the Old Bat how it's done, I'm in. :whip: My codriver won't be around 12/28 - I'll be looking for a ride that day, unless you'll be around and are tired of that big ol' heavy wallet that I can lighten up for you a bit? Okay. We were originally just going to ...

The bump marked in blue is neat. The really slow area is marked with a 4. This means for AWD is useless area. Only patience required 4 U.

Kind of weird that they put so many people in large index classes and basically screwed them.
A few well know people did very well in normal classes.

There fixed that typo for you. :whip: It's much better to look good than to run good. 8-)

It felt really good driving TO the parts store, at least.

Most people drive a lot faster in other people's cars simply because they don't have to fix them or know the car's limits yet. (They always find limits given 2 runs.) The Professor drives even faster when he is driving your car with you in it and he will talk you thru the whole damned course while c...

Painting a Miata

Considering the amount of work you did on this car it looks really good. ALL that you have described are why I will never paint a car again unless it's with rattle cans flat black or with some of that power wash off crap. Hopefully you have a gravity feed spray gun. I had to use an old siphon design...

p.s I welcome all the AWD comments, especially from the Mayor . Well. I haven't watched very many of your old races but you were always jerky as a light switch. This time you were very smooth and utilized actual steering and braking in a straight line. If you stay this smooth in the dry you will be...
