This is going to be a "Banzai" run for me, but we are very much looking forward to it as well.

Started a NEW job a couple of weeks back. Today I informed them bout taking off Fri. the 19th to make the drive, 8)
then I explained that I would also need the 3rd thru the 6th of Oct. off for Vegas,.. :no:, Looks like I,ll have to drive back from Vegas on the 5th to be back for work on the 6th :(.....oh well...

I feel the pain there! The last few Vegas trips i've done were "work on Monday" after the show. Man, it beats you up!

See you in Grand Junction. Hopefully i'll have something 'neat' for show and tell for you guys by that time. ;)

Yesterday at 10 am the motor was in a "million" pieces on the VWP bench.

I spent the day observing Jason put it all back together.
{HAVE I EVER MENTIONED ALL THE HELP I GET FROM VWP} :w00t:
Got it home, got it in and fired it this morning at 10am.

Will meet Jay at the shop in a couple of hours and have the Tune Master {Kris} do his magic.

Still having a gremlin with my car. It's cutting out a bit for some reason. Can't figure it out.

I don't think i'll be running my best at GJ. Gotta figure out what's going on.

I think Paul has a very good chance at ET and MPH this year!

May have found the culprit. Alternator coverplate (behind the pulley, held on by three screws) had come loose. Now the alternator is charging again, and so far no wierd cutting out (idling in my garage anyway).

Time to put the stinger back on the car so we can make some noise! lol

Sweet. I'll be rolling into town Friday afternoon. Going to leave here at about 2pm-ish. Just ran the car down at the shop, and got it sideways in second. She sounds good right now, but who knows what she'll run. Just wish I could find someone with a Dyno. They're like chickens teeth around here. I've met plenty of guys that have access to one, but when it comes time to give them some cash and strap it down, I can't get ahold of them for whatever reason.

Quite frustrating, but oh well. Hey, anyone in Grand Junction have a dyno avaliable Friday night? ;)

Man, what a GREAT time! Even though electrical gremlins kept me from making an elimination pass, I still had a great time. From the BBQ on Friday night, to the racing/blockparty on Saturday at the track, to a late dinner at Boston's Saturday night, to the awesome breakfast this morning at Madson Manor, this weekend was great! Re-affirms if I have to pick ONE show to go to that is out of state, this is the one!

Now to see if I can't track down the gremlin in my car before Vegas. I may or may not make it down there!

The racing at Grand Junction was great. Eric put on a real show with his buggy. We had a good time meeting new racers and visiting with old friends. Eric knows how to put on a good race. His wife and family provide an awsome breakfast too. Thanks Eric for putting on such a good event. We will be back next year for sure.
