You’d spray 150 because that’s what i tell you to spray, or i’d put in 150hp jets and tell you i went 75.

Might actually be better matched against my own Infiniti powered contraption. What are you down to, 3200 lbs or so? 340hp/3200 lbs vs 260hp/2500 lbs, plus nitrous in both lanes. October is gonna be wild.

This was supposed to be there last year but I couldn't get my personal life or the car sorted to make it happen. This could be the year.

I almost purchased a M45 a couple weeks ago. 

It will be bad for all the people who lose to the clapped out Q45 crew.

I was clapped out once. Shot of antibiotics in the ass down at the free clinic cured it.

Fun cars to autocross. I still fondly remember manhandling John's a few years ago. It was pretty easy to get ahead of the power steering.

So does this mean Patrick will have 2 cars at the challenge? Or is the Wartburg too far out for this year?

I have been planning on coming this year, and this thread makes me want to even more so, but we may be buying a house soon, so a trip to Florida could make things tight.

This likely means that Andy will bring this Q because we have a tentative agreement, and I’m full go on the Wartburg.

yesterday I decided backup plans make me lazy, so we have zero backup plan and will register a car that the body still has to come off of again that we’re not even sure we can hit any sort of stability factor with.

No backup plan is the best backup plan.

So i have to fiddle with this guy a bit to drive it to get the salvage title inspection done so Andy doesn’t have to deal with it in PA.  Plan is MAF and whatever the noise in the LF wheel is, then schedule inspection.  I’ll have the title this weekend or next week.   This guy looks right.
