Me personally, I want to go to the track and run my embarrassing time....get my car finished (inside and out), and basically enjoy those warm nights cruising in my CatBird. I'm sick of snow. Blech, I NEED SUMMER.....what are you going to do??

we got a guy comming to our dynotune in chicago from lincoln ne, so NO EXCUSES!!
See, already glad I posted that! I hadn't seen anything on a dynotune in Chicago. When is it? Who is the guy from Lincoln? ThomasA and his SC? Don't tell me it is before April because I don't think I am going to have the current mod list ready by then. And if its too early, then I only have an excuse to go to the track once!

Edit: I knew I would find it if I went to the events, I normally don't look unless its sticky because I thought dyno tune sessions were always stickied. Well anyway, of all the lousy planning, that is the weekend of the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam that I already paid the $90 to take

Edit #2: HMMMM...The FE is Saturday morning, I could drive to Chicago after the FE, get tuned Sunday and drive home, I will seriously consider that one, might have to find someone to help drive though.

Preparing for new springs/shocks/struts (this also equals "gotta save some money!")

Expecting to do: see above, plus a wheel alignment, the transmission modification, radiator flush, and dream about what my car can do for the ¼ mile.

Wanna do: paint job, try to save money, performance chip, try to save money, new carpet, try to save money, plus I was given 1995 Mark VIII drive shaft....yup, a 1995 drive shaft...

Hafta do: pay bills (including car payments), play a lot of gigs, lose some weight. :D :rolleyes:

Well, I just added my name to the dyno tune list for the Chicago session so that will cut out a trip to the strip since it doesn't open until that weekend. That will be a crazy weekend, work Friday night, go to the test Saturday morning, 4 hours of test, one hour break, 4 more hours of test, done at 5. Get on the road by 6. Drive to Chicago (8 hours?) Crash at a friend's house for the night, Get up and go get tuned, and drive back home.
