Glad you had a good time, it was good to meet you. You did great for your first time and easily beat me lol. I didn't take that many pictures this time around so I'll try to pull some off of my friends video camera.

Nope I ran fine but I found out that my steptronic was shifting incorrectly in manual mode. It actually shifted all the way up to 3rd and was pretty annoying because I wasn't expecting it and was fighting it to shift it down. I ended up leaving it in sport mode for my last lap and it ran smoother through my runs. Ran a 70 sec lap vs your 64.

The woes of an automatic, these events are great because I am learning so much about my car though lol.

3. Pat
4. David

We will meet in Wentzville at 10:30AM and leave around 10:45AM to meet mike01ci at the Frozen Custards place around noon. Below is a map of where to meet in Wenztville (in front of walmart).

http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=qg2...zville%2C%20MO

mike01ci, how many people do you think will be at the Frozen Custards place? Wondering how much parking spaces there are.
Bad News: Frozen Custard Place is closed and construction equipment is all over the parking lot. So lets meet up at The 5th Down / Imos Parking lot, which is about 100 yards south of the frozen custard place. The parking lot still allows for slammed cars etc.

Good News: there is a DIY car wash less than 0.5 miles north of where we are meeting, right off Rangeline. 4022 Rangeline

Bad/Good News: The weather still is not looking great, but it was a 70% chance of rain, now it is 40%

was wondering if some tranny software would help? or if any is available for our cars? You can rent a spring compressor from autozone not sure about the roller.

In case any of you guys need 93 Octane there are only 2 stations in CoMo that sell it. Both are at 63 & 70 (exit 128), the QT and the BP. Just figured I should give you all the heads up just incase.

Here ya go bud.

Spring compressor is a tricky thing. I'd take the assembly out and have a shop take it apart. That's how I did mine.

it was a slide up and over a curb i had a good angle. i think everything is ok i had it up on jack stands no real obvious dmg. taking it to get aligned in the morning. Bumper is a bit scraped up. Pretty sure 1 bent rim if not 2 1 bent strut, nothing major you can check out the dmg tomorrow my rocker might be a little scrapped up too. I'm done looking/crying about it today i will get up early tomorrow wash it up and get it on a lift.
