#tbt (to be clear this incident was 2 years ago, not on the current suspension. I think it might have even been on a different set of rear control arms.)

Current plan of attack is to leave the bump stop spacers in for Laguna. I'm not out there leading a supermiata race. Just dinking around.

Over winter I will pull the springs and measure where contact occurs and build a spacer/spacers accordingly.

This will require reseting ride height and maybe redoing alignment.

After all of my amazing luck, and building my own fuel system this was long overdue.

Leaving for laguna in 3 hours.

Savington was nice enough to get in contact with me about the downpipe flange and clamp. I'll be picking them up from him at MRLS.

Which means all my downpipe material has now shown up. Waiting on flanges and 321 weldels before I actually start on the manifold.

Also bringing my dad's DSLR so I will have some less shitty pictures too.

Safe travels!
If you take the 101 contact me when you are near Marin. I will be racing tonight but I should be done by the time you are in the neighborhood.

I love this drive. Turning onto hwy 1 in less than an hour. Haven't even opened the hood. Should check oil next gas stop.

It's amazing how much less activity there is on the forum when Aidan is out on the road....

Finally filled up with 91. Now I need to kill this whole tank before the track so I can put my sweet sweet Oregon 92 back in.

You know, it'd be a lot easier to put in 2 gallons of 100 at the track and fill up with 91 after that.

But I have a trailer.

Pretty sure my motor is on its last leg. It is now a smoke machine. And i get a solid stream of air out of the exhaust valve cover vent.

I'll beat on it one last time and make it home. Good thing building an engine.
