That means it will take another month for my security team to process it through the system before I get it... Oh well.

We are going for a long drive this weekend with spring finally coming back. We'll break my virgin CD in!

Thanks JD!
Are you Barry White for the night !

It's on the way. It probably hasn't jumped the fence yet.

Oh Shi-



Just talking about it made it arrive in my mail. After popping this in my CD player, I'm pretty sure my tires caught on fire. I'm also sure it added another 45 HP to my 986, and it made me magnitudes handsomer.

Jokes aside, listening to this does make me feel like James Bond.

What's the betting mine won't get through Australian Customs....... SMERSH will know too.

If it does, I'm not looking forward to the 3am hammering on the front door - and what am I going to tell my wife when she spies the incriminating evidence???

Mine arrived unscathed for what it is worth. Since I am fond of my silver wheels I am apprehensive about inserting it into my Box Car. I don't want the machine to self destruct! Going over to DE at Lime Rock next Tues. and plan on "playing" it on the way over (on way back too if all is well). Since they are coming after my 20 rd magazines they may as well take the disc along with it. Looking for inexpensive Kevlar undies, anybody have a source?

Is it true that you gain 15 hp and 20 ft lb of torque when the disc is finished working over your ECU?

I moved to an undisclosed location and prepared the proper tools to open the package...

For some reason, while playing the disk, women want to get romantic and then kill me. This may be the best CD ever...and the worst.

Thanks JD!

It's a miracle!

I have been a partially sighted, one legged, bald, hunch back for over half my life.
By the time I got to track 4, all my ailments have been cured.

My leg re-grew, 20/20 vision restored, a fine thatch of hair, and I now stand 6'2" with no hunch back.

My shirts refuse to button further than Simon Cowell's do. I have sprouted a moustache to rival a young Burt Reynolds.

I can't even begin to describe the female attention!
I also gave it a spin in my daily driver- guess what.......that's right. The wheels turned carbon black!
