There will be 3 of us going from Costa Mesa but we usually don't leave until 545 which gets us there about 7.

No, 1st time out in a year so I'll be focusing on knocking off the rust.

I'd go but my car is still down with the strange hesitation at various speeds.

I'll be smoke testing for vacuum leaks this weekend and testing fuel pressure.

Its not all wasted though as I have new plugs, MAF, AOS, gas cap, oil cap seal, cleaned TB, and its running very nice and showing better power between those odd hesitations.

Ian,
See if you can get MacDuff in your right seat as an instructor. He is getting mighty quick these days.

I think I was talking to him on here about traveling together to the sdr event , but we never got together

My instructor at that event got out after 3 laps as he was getting sick
I'm a terrible driver but I've never heard that excuse to get out of my car before

Was great to meet you today .sorry I never got to see you again before the end of the day but it was hectic , then we had to leave immediately after our timed runs .
Did you successfully shake the cobwebs off ?
I think it was your second practice session when I was working corner 8 (90* left into the 180* heading to the finish line ) that was an interesting corner !!!
