I had a blast this year as always, even despite the rain hindering things, most disappointedly the burnout contest and my tent, lol...
It was nice to see the many mangs and hang out with Scott again. Scott is like the big-brother-that-works-on-cars that i never had... i have big brothers, but none turn wrenches.
It was cool to meet Ivan too, the mang behind the shark kitty. I'm sure he's a huge help for scott... also big thanks to him for fixing my PCV circulation... i had assumed air got pulled into the nipple on the TB, so i left the pcv valve in-line in my oil cap, which was pretty much acting like a one-way valve, the wrong way. I had been burning oil since the CFI swap, I always had been a little, but i had never made any burnout or exhaust clip videos before, so i never got a good look at it, and didn't know it was more than usual. i burned about a half quart on the way up, and no noticeable amount on the way back. Thanks mang :2up:
I also think i created a few more LED addicts while i was there... :D
Good company, good eats, good cars, good fun. You can't ask for much more, aside from strippers.
Can't wait till next year!!! :wootrock:
Ive got some pics to post and some video clips to merge together yet... Im gonna try to get some pics up before company comes over tonight, but the video might take a while. im using my antique Dell since my Emachine crapped the bed... its pretty slow for media editing.

my computer is fixed... so here's video for those unfortunate enough to not have been there. I left out the grand marqs' for file size sake. The aero ran 17 something and the box was 19 something...
more to come....


09-03-2009, 12:13 AM
you know, if I ever do that again, I should try to plan running against a car with similar times, just so it doesn't look quite so embarassing lol

09-03-2009, 08:34 PM
Do the organizers decide who lines up with who or is it random? Box vs box next year would be sweet!

here's the random clips I took lumped into one, in no particular order. It doesn't really make sense as a whole... maybe next year Ill get more footage and make a neato moviefilm...


09-04-2009, 02:29 AM

09-04-2009, 08:55 PM
