Got a little surprise going on this morning that nobody knows about. More about that later.
Getting track prepped at home right now with sse1990, then we're picking Katie up (her first year at the track!) and heading to the KOA. 100 octane just went in. We got home last night with about a pint of 92 left.
Pat, I didn't even know Boost was on the phone with you when we were running.
We took his car out for some runs last night (great winding country road out here that has seen ALOT of Bonneville runs in the last few days).
The car doesn't whine any more. It SCREAMS. Very distinctive sound. There'* no doubt who'* doing a flyby next to the KOA any more. It'* funny, nearly every car here sounds different, except the Cheetah and Damien. They're nearly identical. sse1990 and I both simultaneously filmed the other SSEi'* as they entered an onramp on the way home last night, and I have to tell you standing there as they ripped by at WOT was nothing short of amazing. The cars passed us 4 feet away under full load. Mike was filming from the open sunroof, I was at the LF corner of the Zilla. Truly amazing. I'll try to get the vids up soon, but tonight is a late night at the track. We start test/tune at 3pm. Weather is VERY good, and will be nearly perfect tomorrow morning when the bracket racing starts.
The only communication for the rest of the day will be via phone.
Every white car that has arrived so far has had a mechanical issue that we had to deal with. The curse takes a new twist.
SPECIAL THANKS to Don Blackwell, Admin extrordinaire, and John Wikoff, Mr. Senior Moderator for phone support over the last couple days while we were out of internet range and working on cars. GREAT support. Amazingly quick help.
