Default Loving Life

Yesterday it was 76 and today 70. Top down days for the first time since October and I'm boosted. Doesn't get better than this. Drove the car to work the last two days. Other than needing to sort a mild tip in issue and the fact that I have to crank for 3 seconds to start the Adaptronic did what I wanted it to. Cruising in slow converge autotune now. As soon as it is settled I'll let it take over tuning the spark. Man, this thing is easy.

After the Chucky fiasco, as soon as I find some more injectors it's going to 10 psi with an EBC. That's as far as I'm likely to push it with 99 motor's higher compression and my little IC. Even then, it's more of a hoot than my WRX ever was.

Word.

It's been 70ish for two days in a row here in Ohio. Definitely did some top off cruising the last two days. And whored out some of my friends motorcycles.

I can't remember the last time I drove with the top UP.

Some of you are wimps. I rode home 20 miles with the top down yesterday in a t-shirt at 60ish degrees, the warmest it's been here in 5 months...but I've also been known to go top down even into the 20s, so maybe I'm just weird.

My brother is in Greenbay...He is loving it right about now.

My top hasn't been up in oh, months. There were a couple of cold days, but the car stayed in the garage and I took my son to school in the Cooper.

We need rain desperately though.
