It's probably also got something to do with nice weather
Fuckin' losers and their social lives.
Nah brah. This ain't what it used to be
Seriously. I would usually check the DC on the weekends while having my morning coffee and I'd have 10+ pages to catch up on. Even if it was mostly swift, dsg and zip posting crap.
Well I spent the day hanging out with Robbie Gordon, Marco, and Mario Andretti. We got to stay in the pit box for the races, so it was fun. I was in Gordons stadium truck for a bit, while he gave me the rundown of everything. Pretty cool day.
Mario is impressively down to earth. I was blown away when I got to meet him; he was just milling around with the fans.
Took the bruised banana out for another run. Checked the timing before I left. I completely guessed on the timing when I set it and it was 2 deg advanced from stock specification. Good enough for me. Actually got it out for a bit; coolant gauge works, fan works, still gutless. Gas gauge is still iffy. It either shows full or empty; no in between.
Tried to teach the gf to drive it. Absolute and miserable failure. Probably not one of the better cars to learn in since it has a fairly tall 1st gear and absolutely no torque. Didn't matter how many demonstrations or explanations I gave, she would just dump the clutch, stall it and cuss up a storm. Had to throw in the towel when I could tell the battery was getting weak from all the starts. Going to be a long way to go before she's comfortably on the road.
