    Steve
    left you a message, I am trying to do my leaf springs and shocks in time for sunday. The website is vague about the time trial and there are not many photos.

    call me at home tonight or on my cell tommorow, thanks.

    call mr angry and whoever else you can think of, this could be awesome.

    That should be pretty cool. If you guys go, I will probably try to make it. I've got plans on Sat. night though, so it may be hard to get there.

    Ya know what? I'm out. All work, no play. I'm in pre-SEMA mode and there's just no time for me to work on the car, let alone drive it.

    And yes I'm grumpy.

    Steve Try and make it, I am thrashing to get my car ready. It wont be fun to have the only musclecar amongst the minis and 911s.

    My last hurdle will be that my car pulls under braking, they make you do a no hands brake test at tech. I guess I will look at the front end and brakes if the leaf springs and shock dont help. I am hoping that replacing the totally shot shocks, leaf springs and shackles will help a little.

    This may be ok - I think my wife volenteered us for a Katrina Relief thingy on Sunday morning, but I'm not sure yet - as soon as I find out I'll let everyone know. If I don't have to go to that I'll hit this event - it sounds pretty cool.

    Yo'! -

    I can't make this weekend - my wife has us signed up all day Sunday to man a table at a charity event for Katrina. I'm bummed I can't make it but I would feel pretty crappy if I blew off the volenteering thing... plus my wife would kill me.

    When are we having the next get together BTW?

    It looks like I'm going to have to bail as well.

    Dirk, it looks like you'll have to carry the banner for the pt board. Get some video! How'd the 3' drop leafs work out?

    ken, thanks for moral support.

    the springs dropped the car a little too much so bert made longer shackles for now.

    I get rid of the air shocks and now i have joe dirt shackles!

    LOL, if it makes you feel better, feel free to 'cuss me. I really would love to go, but a late night tonight, coupled with about 4+ hours of Acct. work to do by Monday is killing me. Sorry for bailing on ya. Please represent the PT crowd proudly!!

    Had a great time, I will post video and more photos soon. The car is still a handful but I didnt hit a cone all day. Some of the full race cars were mowing down cones.

    That's an amazing photo. It reveals a lot about stock suspension geometry and the effects of soft front springs. Anyone who is scrathcing their head trying to understand camber curves just needs to stare at that right front wheel for a while. From the video you sent me, it looks like this event is a big deal.
    Sorry I missed it. I'm glad you had fun.

    It was great, crossed the throgs neck bridge under a full moon and full throttle.The event was a little disorganized but I still got to throw the car around on city streets with cops diving for cover. The times will be posted in a few days.A couple of autox ringers with beemers and a lotus elise were the fastest, these guys were smooooooth.I cant wait to do my front suspension , the photo of my front wheel says it all.P.s. I was told i beat the nascar guy.
