yep. the more it moves up into thursday afternoon/night the better. the projected rainfall totals are also plummeting, should bode well for for the yard.

I think the amount of water on the inside would be the same if I did. If I drive this thing in a downpour my socks get wet. I put a new windshield seal in and it's borderline useless.

I have one I could bring

I think it'll be fine. I do have a cover I can throw over it just in case though.

speaking of rain and eating, anyone :cough:marv:cough: got a high capacity smoker/grill? one of the Aspeed guys has offered to smoke/grill chicken drums as a precursor to dat ass (tm), but the ol egg doesn't have that kind of capacity because... well.. despite my propensity to eat I can't eat quite THAT much lol.
So, uh, I resigned from my job this past Friday so I'm 50/50 on going now. Feel like I should be doing some job searching instead of drinking and talking **** about cars but we'll see. I can bring the red barrel though if I come. The barrel can do an entire brisket, like 5 or 6 butts, lots and lots of ribs. More than we'd probably need for the weekend. What's the shower situation? Got running water outside we could stand under?

there's a finished bathroom outside by the pool, shower and all. just bring towels and toiletrees (or be prepared to run to the cvs... two of which are within 5 miles lol)

I've been killing myself trying to get the car ready to drive down. I had the cam plug fall out Friday. A brake line blow on Saturday. Swapping in new straighter trailing arms. Advance auto losing my brake caliper.

Can't stop, won't stop.

My stuff should be "good enough". I might have time for a new fuel baffle, might not. Worst case I'll fill it up before we go to the track. Either way it still pisses fuel a good two feet out of the filler cap on right hand turns when full.

Valve seals seem to have helped a lot of running issues.

Riding down/meeting up with Jared still, planning on Friday.

damn. they updated the track schedule since the last time I looked (which, admittedly, was a little while ago), some sort of 3 day event this weekend. I'll try and call & see if they're going to do test n tune, but with the rain friday morning I'd be willing to bet they're pushing everything back half a day and won't have time for us peons.

What we'll do instead (assuming we can't race) is mix the evenings normally associated with mountain meet with the dyno. There's a couple cars that I need to tune and I'm sure a couple of yall would like to spend more than 20 minutes on the rollers as will likely be the case saturday. I know Mo wants redemption runs after the last time he was down, Mark's 2j car will still be a work in progress so we can make the 2j noises and then later maybe see how it stacks up to sam's vvti setup (as long as he doesn't spray it lol)

this whole thing is going to get insane starting this afternoon. Bought some heavy duty warehouse shelving from a store going out of business... they called and said the **** had to be gone by COB friday. So.. I'm gonna try and get it all today. if we have to take it apart, then it'll just get propped up in a corner til after the meet.. if it can be loaded up intact (which would be a feat, no lie), I'm inclined to try and get the re-org on early.. which will involve shuffling stuff down ahead of the rains down in africa scheduled for tomorrow.

nothin' but work ;)

Speaking of food...yeah, I know....my favorite subject in school was lunch.... Kenny, I can bring the deep fryer of destruction if there is a need for fries, tots, wings, etc.

I also have the gas grill that I brought to Mountain Meat and a Weber kettle grill. Someone closer probably has a grill that could be used, but I do have one.

I don't know how much we're going to be cooking vs. eating out, but I like hanging out and cooking better than looking at a menu.
