Lol, negative. Still can't get that AE out of my blood. I'm thinking TC4 but still not 100% decided. If I don't get a TC4 I will get a MI2. I loved my Bosscat. Favorite car that I have ever driven.

thanks for the info on the Mi1, PW. i haven't put it on the track yet but judging from the suspention geometry......the heart of the car's handling must lie in getting the roll centers dailed. as i noticed the roll slope leans toward the front of the car. can't wait to get the gear adapter so i can try it out. perhaps the belt will come a little later. (carpet season almost here )

I went from 5th to 3rd in two corners. Got knocked to last by a flying car from the other side of the track and worked back up to 6th. Not a great showing but oh well. Donny was flying in the mains but had a little bad luck. He won the third 19 turn main and got 4th overall in 19 turn. I think he wound up in the middle of the pack in mod as well. Clint made the A in 19 turn and stock. Not too sure how he did though. I know Pat made the A in mod as well.
Thats not bad for either of you... I just got my stuff back from the anodizer, it came out really good, now I just need to build the car.

I think my car was fast enough to make the A if I had gotten dialed in earlier. And in the main I was fast enough to challenge Walter for the win but you have to look out for those flying lawn darts on the track!

The car was dialed this weekend at the regionals. Don V. has a pretty killer set up for that track. I will have to run it out this way to see how it runs compared to out standard set up. I ran a spool after testing with a oneway. The oneway was fast but a good driver with a spool would be hard to beat. The spool set the fastest laptimes in stock which shocked me. I could put the car anywhere I wanted and still had great corner speed. The MI2 was awesome. Quick changes were made with time to spare. Very easy to work on. I vote the MI2 for president...

P.W.- results...... 2nd in stock and 8th in 19turn. The carpet regionals are coming up in the next couple of weeks so the MI2 won't have time to rest much from this past weekend. Thanks again to you and Adrian for your support and helpful suggestions.
