We've been accepted into this race. That's getting to be something of a big deal seeing as over 300 teams try to get into the Sonoma Raceway races. Anyway, we are in, and it's time to get busy. Hopefully the Phoenix Racing guys have also been accepted because that will put two GTs on the same track again.
- Date: March 21-22, 2015
- Track: Sonoma Raceway, Sonoma, CA
- Drivers: TBA, but at this time 8 people have told me they want a seat in the car, not including Lowkey.
Our motor is still busted. Apparently giving it a month off wasn't enough time for it to heal itself. Until an hour ago I hadn't touched it, which is surprising because I am really curious to see how much damage we did. Anyway, the car is on jack stands again and I've started taking parts off. The radiator is out and the intake/carbs are off. I'll get the rest off tomorrow and if I start early enough/am inspired I'll pull the motor, too.
We have a spare 2.0 almost ready. The bottom end is done, the rings have been gapped, and the pistons are ready to go in. I've got a spare head all ready to go. I'll need a full gasket kit because I used the one meant for this motor in the Arse-Freeze fiasco.
I love working on these things and wish I could do it more but other projects and money issue are competing for my time. I'm sure you all know the story.
More to come, naturally.
