OH! That'* a good idea! Same laser system that did SilverBullet'* TB adapter for his GenV, and all the SEBF06 keychains.

Off to the machine shop to work over some throttle bodies. Harofreak'*, Shadd'*, and Custom88'*. Unfortunately, there were problems with Custom88'* shortstar TB. I'll contact him seperately on that.

Need to get work done quickly? Get help. We had two mills going. Quoc is one of my co-workers. His brother Hua is one of our WCBF sponsors this year (wcbf04'ers know Hua and some of you have met Quoc at hp on your visits):

No, I don't know what it is either, but he'll tell you it'* a 'heat shield' for his flux capacitor.

It'* a 3.0 on there right now.
I was at the other end of the track when you almost hit the wall. As for the sig pic, I was standing RIGHT next to your car, and I got a partial video, since I was getting the race in front of you until I heard the car rev up, then all you can see is smoke, and you actually loose the car in the smoke. I tried to shrink it down and upload it but my computer is NOT co-operating with me tonight.

Haro, Bill said to say that'* your TB on my supercharger on the workbench.

And when we put my supercharger back together, we got the rotors mixed up, and yours and mine rotors got swapped. At least they're the same blower, eh?

That'* a plug Bill, and it wasn't leaking to Shadd'* knowledge, but he is aware of it.
