Booger the one w/ the Aprilla laid his down too yrs ago and just never got around to working on it. As of late he's picked up new fairings and repainted them and he was waiting forever on the front end and finally got it installed. Think he is just doing odds and ends but he's slow. LOL

Not a fan of 1/8th mile tracks either but that's all they have and I haven't the need to drive 3hrs for a 1/4. I rather drive my car on a road course like road atlanta or sebring. 5hrs drive though for the amount of money they want? Sheyot...I miss the nurburging SOOO much right now. Pay 16 euros and go, no tech inspection, nothing. Here? You need a class 1st then a co-pilot before they let you out on your own. WTF? And then you're paying some astronomical amount of money for 8hrs which brings me to my last point---you need a gang of people to go in with ya to make it cheap/affordable.

Yeah I'll let ya know when I head out that way. My coils came in! Pray to God that's been the problem all along w/ that car.

Coils didn't do the trick. Grrrrr...

Talked to Adreline Rush today and they said the do weld 02's bungs on titanium exhaust. Said the bike has to be there to do it or the exhaust system itself. Told him the yr and make of your bike and still couldn't give me a quote. Bunch of BS there but what ever. Personally, I'd look else where and use them as a last resort or get it done up where you are before you leave if time permits.

What's the issue with your car again? And Coils, what engine do you have in that thing?

That's good enough for me if they can do it. I'll just take them the exhaust and let them do it. I would like to do it before I leave, but my bike is blocked in my storage unit by all my house hold goods and I don't feel like messing with it before TMO comes to take it all. I have so much to do to it anyway that it just makes sense to do tackle it all when I get to FL and have a place to do it. It'll need new tires, new battery, oil/filter change, coolant flush, and who know what all. I'll just take the exhaust off and have that done while I'm doing everything else on it. Then it can all go back together and be running strong.

It's an LTx 388ci, low compression setup. I'm using an modified opti only as a cam sync. Using a FAST XFI system and LS7 coils w/ a FAST XIM controlling the coils. It's a hybrid system and works but I just can't get mine to work. When I first installed it it busted off w/in 1/2 a revolution of the engine starting but I had no cam sync so it wouldn't stay runnning. Then something got fried and had to send both boxes back to sum of 1200 bucks to be repaired. They got it fixed and I found the source of no cam signal and figured once the boxes were back I'd be good to go. Shit on got worse and would never fire again. The spark on the coils were weak and continued to wane so I figured the XIM torched the coils and that's why I bought new ones and where I currently am today. Bitch still won't fire.

Just checking in man, any news on the camaro? How's the weather there in PC?

I'll be leaving the desert in 2 days and then I should arrive in PC the first week of November after a long road trip.

Ummm...let see. Finally got the title last wk, registered it, took it on it's maiden voyage Sat and before I got it out the garage...dropped it on the camaro. Was taking it off the front wheel stand solo which I've done countless times and this time as I was doing it the kickstand decided to pop up the same time as I was letting it down slowly and the momentum took it down. Broke the fairing, wind screen and two dents in the tank. Tank is gonna cost me 250 to fix and I just found an OEM fairing on ebay that I'm closing the deal on now as I type. So all is left is the hotbodies windscreen. I'll get the tank fixed in the dead of winter. Camaro has pearl white paint on the door now but I think it can be buffed out. Pissed more about that then the bike.

The initial ride was a blast! It's gonna be awhile before I really get use to it. Torque is everywhere on this thing and I'm still adjusting to riding it. It makes you respect it that's for sure and the brakes are damn right silly on this thing.

Got the camaro running today for the 1st time in 2.5 yrs but it still needs some work before it's driveable. Timing was 180 out and my fuel pumps weren't running as programmed but got it all sorted out only to find out all 3 wideband 02's took a dump. Hoping I can fix the most important one which is the FAST WB as that's what the XFI reads. Basically running in open loop now.

Tomorrow I ride w/ Chadthaman for the 1st time. Asked him to go easy on me. LOL

Time is getting short for ya man!

14 days in a rowHahaha dead of winter...you mean those 3-4.weeks in late jan to mid feb where you can't ride (early in the morning)

Dude, riding is YEAR ROUND.in PC. There might be 15 days this winter that it will be too "cold". Otherwise it'll just be avoiding the rain.

For the last 7 years I rode at least once a week EVERY week except when it rained constantly.(more than 14 days in a row , and even then you can sneak in a quick session for an hour or two at one of the spots)

Dead of winter... HAH! That guy's got jokes!

Enjoy FL my friend.

Hell yeah I got jokes. LOL

It's all relative dude. It's YEAR ROUND in Belguim/Europe too but I bet I won't see you out there in the "dead of winter" riding in snow...now will you? LOL Lets see how hardcore you THINK you are. I don't freeze for no one and I get cold easy but that's just me. Riding is a means of pleasure for me at this stage in life and not my primary means of transportation as it may be for some. When it gets too cold for me I'm driving one of my other toys. Spring and Fall are perfect climates for me here in PC. Summer I don't mind at all as it's my preference but even then I ride in the morning or late afternoon/evening.

I've been here the last 4 yrs and have never seen no rain during that short stint of winter. What you talkin bout Willis?

Enjoy Belguim and make sure ya hit Spa and the Nurburgring if you haven't done so already!

I'm gonna hit mettet first (next month) and spa in the spring. The ring I will probably do next summer. That one will be expensive to do a full on trackday at. Hopefully assen, caldwell park, and sachsonring as well next spring/summer depending on finances.

You will have a great winter man. It doesn't snow much here but the rain and black ice will keep me from riding in the wintertime.

Nurburgring is cheap! The cheapest of them all. 16 euro's per lap unless it's gone up since I was last there and even still, you can't beat the price for 14 miles of pure bliss! God I miss that place!

Yeah, the black ice AIN'T NO JOKE in your parts but don't be fooled. You'll get some snow. LOL

Sandman, hope you are traveling down the east coast right about now. LOL Temps dropped like 20 degrees because of that storm. It'll be a little warmer by the time you get here.

Rock hill road is garbage, too many bad bumps and a couple deep grooves in the road. I had a bad run in with one of the locals there too. He put axle grease across the road out of one of the decent sweepers. That was enough to make me stay away from that road.

Sounds familiar, but I didn't run it often if I did run it. IIRC that's the one that is on the north sike, kinda close to bob sikes road? Puts you right into the walmart on 331 right?
