You've had quite a season - glad to hear that it's still going on.

AC Cobra replica. 155 mph down Andretti straight without even

Meanwhile, I'm working on getting my trusty NX1600 ready for next
year. I bought it December 31, 1992 so it's now coming up to 16 years

it's one of the best investments I've made. To keep all of us safe
it's getting a 4 point roll bar and harnesses. Mechanically all is
well - I've just added a phantom grip LSD for a bit more bite. Had to
rebuild the transmission (I just don't like grinding sounds) so the
timing was right!
Calum is still working his ECU magic and I'm hoping to get just a bit
more out of it; and I'm not ready to swap engines yet.
Take care and if any of you decide to come up to some Canadian
tracks, let me know.
