    I'm from Panama City, Fl and we were hit by Hurricane Michael. The track has been down for years and they had just recently opened when the storm hit and messed it all up. Yesterday was the 1st day opening after the storm for Test and Tune. You're dang right I couldn't sleep the night before. I tossed and turned all night long like a kid waiting for Santa to come.

    Anyway, I haven't been able to get much practice due to the track being down so I'm working on it. First run was with some old E85 in the tank from back in November. I ran an 8.700 with plenty of knock. It was terrible!!! So I looked at the logs and pulled my plugs and saw the plugs were seeing some knock, probably due to the fuel. Threw in a new set I had purchased before heading to the track, threw in some new E85 and this was the second run against a big ole V8 with HUGE fat tires. Thought he was gonna kill me. My [email protected] to his 7.0 something at 101 I believe. Trying to get down in the 6's but I'm having issues shifting. Probably due to a warped flywheel (I'm thinking) because I'm getting locked out at high rpm's. Never saw the guy come around me though. Anyway, enjoy....

    So new turbo is in. Just working on getting it installed, then more updates. Manifold is currently on order but should be soon.

    Nice. I can't wait until I get my car done so I can start enjoying it again. It's been almost 5 years since it has seen the streets.
