Default I got a new job!!

I was contacted by www.Speedwaremotorsports.com a few weeks ago since they heard I was planning on moving back to Washington. I am going to be a technician there. They don't currently do any custom forced induction systems so I get to bring something to the table. They do a lot of work for Microsoft employees since they are located a few minutes away from them. Its going to be a lot of Porsche, Audi and BMW work although they will do whatever. Speedware is also the ones who really helped Sparco get started in the US and they do a lot of R&D for them. I am pretty excited to move back home and get started.

Oh no...I will still be peddling parts. I will also try to be able to offer something like a discount and Sparco and Recaro stuff as well as helmets or something to you guys.

When were were negotiating they said they had to turn away and Exige owner that wanted a custom turbo system. I am pretty pretty sure they will be trying to get him back in the door now. I will have lots of pictures for you guys.

I was in Seattle a couple of years ago. Heard something interesting on the morning news. Seems there was a slowdown on the Tacoma bridge due to "The Sunshine Effect" Seems people in the area don't know how to drive when the sun is out.

You should see what happens when it snows. Its comical. If they get more than 2 or 3", people start abandoning their cars right where they are at. That includes cars like Audi's with Quattro and 4 wheel drive Scoobys.

Glad to hear you're still be selling yoyr performance products. I plan to get a WI kit , but can't pull the trigger for another 2 months. Congrats on the new job, sounds like you're making a name for yourself, in a good way.
