If I'm not mistaken, you might have a kid on the way? Possibly quite soon? Your first?

I'll be ecstatic to welcome you to the group of "fathers who are also challenge racers" but let me also say it will most likely have an impact much greater than you are expecting. p.s. I realize this is the trash talk thread but this post is in no way meant to be trash talk.

HAHA i appreciate it. i didnt take it as trash talk. I understand i have a little bundle of unknown and full expect it to rob me of time working on the cars. Luckily for me, my wife is a stay at home mom and we have a pretty decent game plan going into it. Granted i know those plans are bound to change, because of the whole unknown aspect, but im opimistic. 

She potentially will be the youngest Challenge attendee lol. She was there this year in the womb, and next year in a stroller lol

Remember that the smell test is always safer than peeking by pulling the diaper out with one finger.

Fords have always had a problem with numbers.... 4.9L ? Close enough. Round it to 5

EDIT: also, if you don't break a 15.0, you got beat by a Hyundai. Just sayin'

Tanner was 17 days old when he made it to the Challenge.

Shhh!  Don't tell him all the secrets!

(My first trip to the Challenge had my wife and  another mom setting up a nursery in our race trailer). That kid could have driven at the Challenge this year!

Who is bringing the identically prepared CiViCs that's we can go hijack semis full of VCR TV combos?

TBH it looks pretty slow.  I think your gearing is totally wrong and looks like you don’t have much traction with just that one tire.
