I'll quote what John said to me after the 105 mph. He said that "my asshole was in front of my balls".

David Taylor put up some pics of the PAC car. I always think his pictures are awesome.

Running the rocks on a flat.

Well, with the two of your EVP's combined, you may be able to replace that flat tire.
