  1. Man, it's been way too long since there's been an Austin TJ meetup. I don't think I can afford cash- or time-wise to move into a more car-shenanigans-friendly place (! eeee) the weekend before and do, um, haha, anything in the near future, but I'd be down to say hi. (If anyone wants to drink beer and pack/unpack boxes, LMK! Haha.)
  2. I've seen tackle boxes in use for bolts, too, but I tend to have a zillion little baggies myself. It's my engine! I've never looked inside my engine—just done the stuff around it. But it's my engine! I have the spare engine from the '83 that had low compression in one cylinder and then sat in a field for a few years. I think I might rebuild that next, whenever I get some free time.
  3. IDK, there was a genius that tried this for LeMons with a Rita? Mini but they got a zillion penalty laps. Very sad to see the track go, regardless. :(
  4. Booooooo. Can't people just, like, live somewhere else? At the very least, I hope they at least accidentally end up with a Goatse Lane or something.
  5. Ooooooh neat. I came across these tests when I was looking up the concussion I got last year and didn't know they were available to the general public.

    Hahahahaha, this is great.
  7. Probably covering it for the internets, as usual.

    Safe Is Fast

    That's what happened to me. Right afterwards, I felt like I could've hopped back into another car. LeMons was a hard no on that one. I didn't go to the hospital since I felt OK at the time and was actually concerned about the cost of that. These are both stupid reasons for not going to the hospital. A few hours later, I was still full of piss 'n' adrenaline but starting to feel worse. I think I was more concerned about some small ache my arm that must've whacked something on impact than anything else. Next morning? Oh helllllllllll no. I was starting to feel really dizzy and even put off flying home until the next morning because I felt like butt. Then I had trouble doing basic tasks like finding my gate at the airport. Took three months to mostly-recover, plus another couple to really start feeling normal again. It sucks big hairy donkey balls. Lesson learned: if you're in a hard hit, just take the damn ambulance ride.

    Holy crap, this trailer sounds nice.
  10. Holy crap, that sounds like a blast. Good luck!
  11. Congrats! Heh, I'll also gladly volunteer as a free student. :) I suck! Who wants a challenge? Hahaha. TBH, I think it'd be hard to classify instructors because you have such a variety of students out there that it's hard to quantify what makes "the best." At the end of the day, the ones I've gotten the most from have been people who bust my balls about what I'm doing wrong, and who might know my car and do some crapcan racing, too. But then I'm there at the trackday for someone to point out what I'm doing wrong! That's my entire reason for wanting an instructor in the car! But others might just want to have fun and take things a bit more relaxed as opposed to "please point out every stupid thing I'm doing," so that's a completely different set of needs. I'd imagine some of you are better at different things, too: green students, advanced students, high horsepower, low horsepower, students who want to go racing, They Of Many Offs, oh-crap-you're-driving-this-like-an-autocross person, shy students, timid students, etc., etc. So, I think Mike brought up a good point—I don't know if time spent instructing or arbitrary levels would be any improvement over simply matching up students and instructors well.

    Oh hell yeah! Highlight reel time.
  13. My parsh didn't get dirty yet. Too wet, no headlamps, too soon. So, my project for the next month is to get the parsh dirty-able. Because DIRT!!!

    Haha, I was pretty surprised to see one of the in-car vids from Le Mans where Hartley's visor was up. LeMONS won't let us out on track without it down. I admit I leave mine up a lot but I'm kind of glad I'm so used to sunglasses now that I want that tinted visor down regardless.
  15. HAYSOOS! If he doesn't want to drive that 911, I will gladly take it off his hands.
