    Big track, banked curves. Gas, steer, brakes. Turn left a lot and turn right once. That, and a road trip too.

    The shifter *shouldn't* fall apart again for another few years and we've got a turkey baster to catch the gear oil that flies out of the rear end vent. That's all the reason for another go at it, I'd say. The track fees are less than half what they are at Daytona and the trip is a little over half as far. No reason not to.

            We need to do something even if it's wrong.

                It would be a short tow for you to bring Mutt over there and run laps, cept you'd have to put a passenger seat in him for an instructor the first time out. It would be an enlightening experience for ya, you could learn how to hate Corvettes...

                    This is a piece of the infield road course - an ass kicking straightaway that goes from NASCAR turns 1-2 all the way to NASCAR 3-4. It's gotta be a quarter mile long, a drag strip. It would probably be a good idea to get slowed down to turn right before you get to those concrete barricades.

                      Depends on how you feel about body work.
