B is definitely gonna be the most competitive class this year. i might have to switch to eating ramen to save up the money for the coils. i want that diff, but if i'm gonna have any chance against you guys i'll need coils/camber first

Turns out I had three vacuum lines loose or disconnected, after service last week, that led to my limp mode shenanigans at autocross. Lana did not have limp mode after we found the blow-off valve disconnected, but neither of us had the turbos all day. We were running the equivalent of a 128i going into limp mode. Nice...

Got my car back a few hrs ago, and it feels like a different car.

hey at least you fixed it!

i'm starting to get the telltale lumpy idle and have had a couple very slightly longer cranks. cleared codes last night (only 2 codes...from a cyl 6 misfire and from disconnecting the battery). prob gonna run stock all weekend at the glen in case i throw new codes. this way i can actually use them with the stealership. last year when i threw fuel pump codes i also had chip codes, so i had to clear everything and wait for the fuel pump ones to reappear

Let's do this then. I think Andy would appreciate it as a going away BBQ as well (I have crashing space, if needed). We need a big group of us though. Baker, that means you too. You are closer now. Just got a new cordless impact wrench in the mail today. Good to be breaking it in.

Throwing out May 28 as a possible date.

Is that Memorial Day weekend? If so, then crashing is back on, if needed.

nice! i'll be around that weekend. there's a great meat market in davis that i can stop by, depending on what/how many we're planning for.

................there's a good butcher shop too

i just ordered my camber plates today! gonna ship this week. ground control street setup, so they'll work with my stock springs. i'll call up hms tomorrow for the belts

and yes, that is memorial day weekend

Weak... First ya say you can't to the 28th cuz you are on a cruise, so we move it to the 29th, and now you don't even have the car.

So far we got Notti and Rachel cupcakes for a tech day/cookout. I'm on hiatus for more mods, unless Ming donates the ones we can't put on his car!

I suppose we could break out buffers/polishers and do that, if we wanted to.. if it's nice out.
