Thanks. If your scales are still around, I'd like to use them after Turkey Day so we can have an idea of where we are at weight wise.

Why are you even bothering? We met this year's upcoming winner last year out by the lakebed. He has followers all over the country, you don't stand a chance.

Race prep has begun. Powertrain is almost ready to come out. Hopefully I can get some time this week to do some power washing.

No upgrades, just fluid changes/tune-up and inspection. Trans is going to Tom for a check up to make sure it's ready for next season. Engine has had the oil pan off a few times, so we know the bottom end looks good. lol.

With the engine out we can more easily look at the wire harness where it passes through the firewall. The gromme backed out in June, and we patched it up; but we figure it's worth a full inspection.

With the drivetrain out we can do a deeper cleaning and inspect the chassis more thoroughly. The plan is to clean and inspect everything.
