Default March 7 season end 2009

wooohoooo.... first time all wet

man, i gotta remember to bring my poncho or at least my jacket next time. i got it at the last minute while i was walking to my work corner after lunch. then it poured off and on.

i ran with my windows up and with the a/c on once cuz i forgot to turn it off. i don't even remember if i had my wipers on or not.

i did almost finish backwards on my first run, but i thought i'd take out too many cones and/or get yelled at. so i went forward and took the DNF. lol.. looking back i should just went backwards and finished it.

always cool to see that silver saturn general motors thing. it makes this really cool winding noise and pulls hard.. kinda like the sound my motor would make just before it blows up and rolls backwards. hahaha.

I hope runoffs won't be wet. Apparently, I qualified to race in the runoffs so I'm going to try to make it to that one.

yeah, i got invited too, i should be there.

right now i'm not sure about the times from yesterday on the red cobra. we all thought Corey didn't even make 45.xxx, its shows 44.xxx

maybe a typo? i wouldn't be too concerned if it didn't mean i won't get a 2nd place magnet again.. LOL

wet, wet, wet
I stayed under control pretty well. It had been a while, glad to say I wasn't one of the many DNF's and I don't think I coned. The run that actually had puddles was my quickest.

I dunno if I had much supercharger whine on yesterday as it just induced wheel spin.
But I am still addicted to the whine


I didn't qualify runoff's so I will see you guys at the July Auto X

nah... my car is cool that's why... there is no off. always on, my man, just like your car. haha

hey good news is that Corey chimed in with his last run. definately looks like a typo, no one seems to remember him catching me. so that means i get another 2nd place magnet in ESP!

45.7xx was my best run. yeah, i see i didn't catch you... maybe next time. i have no idea how i woulda done against spike this time. i was looking forward to it.

mine turns off @ 95% throttle factory
or whatever you set it at if you have HPTuners

If spike was in fact in the ladies gym instead of ottercross, I want to know how he got it. They keep that area roped off and separated, and I want in!

i asked where you were. he said school... so i said girls locker room. we both agreed that's better than racing, especially in the rain.

well, maybe i can join you next time... as my camaro is acting up on me. started idling bad the other day off and on and today my CEL came on going up H3 just before the tunnel. it went off but i know something is up. i doubt its the emissions.

could be that dam intake gasket leaking water again and if it didn't already, its going to ruin my vavles again. apparently from some google searching this particular engine (3.8L seriesII) does not like prolonged idles and this intake gasket is prone to failing. i'm thinking the design of the intake is what makes it fail, its not that the engine doesn't like long idles... its that the engine doesn't like to run, period.

i'll have to hurry up and run some tests to confirm... ahh fakk!

cool... i'm out though. car runs like poop 1/2 of the time.

the only code i found today was a MAF code range/performance from when it went on and off. unless i start getting misfire codes i doubt this has anything to do with the intake leaking water, still i have to run compression tests, vacuum, fuel.. just to see what the hell is going on.
