I don't know how many people caught it, but I made a great display of how shitty the Gen I w-body braking power is on the way to Big Bucks. Got on the brakes as hard as I could, and because I had already had to stop fairly quickly a minute or so before, I had basically no brakes and pretty much missed the entrance to the freeway. (the brake fade on Gen I w'* is probably the worst I have ever experinced in ANY car) And, I had just put new brakes on it on Thursday, so they were only 2 days old! I was following Sol and was trying to duck in between him and an SUV and I got passed the SUV but couldn't get over 'cause when I got on the brakes it didn't stop, and obviously I decided it wasn't a good idea to slam into the back of Sol. If it weren't for a fellow BC club member letting me in, I probably wouldn't have been able to get back on the freeway and make it to Big Bucks, since I had no clue where the place was.

And then everyone had to smell my brakes the rest of the way there.

Time for some slotted rotors...

The person on the very left in the front (on the right looking at the picture) is me. In the leather and khakis (sp?).

Good point. And what'* Sol'* real name? We've all pretty much given up our real names except I've never heard his name!

Shawn scared me with his brakes. I thought that smell was coming from my car.


And as for my name, if you really wanna know, go look in the Intro section under the sticky about the mods.

I had fun, even the 12 hour trip there and back had it'* fun parts(and scary). Making a big trip like that is a blast. Especially when you turn up unexpectedly. :P
