Hope everyone has a great time!

Any chance you can still come for a part of the weekend? Some people are arriving late or leaving early. It's a long trip, but it's worth it!

Will be departing this evening. Stops in Montpelier and Jackson (just a brief skip up the great gulf trail) then checking in tomorrow night. After that, just a hop skip and a jump to Millinocket and Scarborough before jumping into fest-ivities.

We are up here too now, but we aren't staying at the resort. We had found a little house on a lake nearby to rent.

It's about 4 hours for me, which would be a nice drive into Maine. I could do it Saturday possibly. I'm sure some people would like to see the CP3 set up. I still have to buy the membership though, which I keep forgetting to do.

OK, I was hoping to leave Toronto tonight around midnight to get to the Fest early Friday morning, but my Transmission decided it had other plans for me.

After not being able to select reverse or properly get the shifter into 1st, 3rd or 5th, I thought that the shifter fork went bad. After opening it up, we found that it was actually the Shaft that rotated and bent .

I have sourced a new shaft and reinforced the shifter fork since it is open (too bad I can't source or afford an LSD to put in since it is open already) and once it is all put back together and closed up I should be ok to leave for the fest sometime Friday morning ish.

See ya when I get there.

I am gonna seriously need some ZEN Time once I get there....

Are you going to have to find a dyno and update your signature again?

Have Fun!

Don

P.S. I wish I could be there.

May stop in Vegas on way home if I can make appointment with Mike at TDTuning to run on the dyno in Henderson and have Mike adjust the tune. New turbo is VERY responsive at the low end. Lots more at the top end also. Think my 9 month old VR6 clutch will be due for replacement soon. It slipped once or twice already. Right now I am seeing 23 lbs boost on a "safe" tune. Need to dial back fuel a bit. Still too much smoke. But no huge cloud of black smoke like you saw in San Diego.
