Well, Let me just say. WOW! That was fun.

I would like to thank Mr Crono. I mean Crovo, and Nab for putting this thing together. And thanks goes out to the ECIRS for showing up, and putting on a great show. Also I would like to thank all the local Badass guys and gals who came out to enjoy the day, and get some seat time.

I did video every run, but since I was doing video with a digital camera, the times and speed at the end of the track can not be seen.
Bill, it was too bad to see you have to drop out after the first round. You were putting up some great numbers. Now change that sig. Very Happy

Here are some pics and highlight video of the day.

Great pics and vids. As soon as my sunburn heals I'll say it was a great afternoon out. Too bad more people couldn't have run this year. And it was great to see everyone leave happy.

Nice coverage, Billy. Really made me miss having a b-body watching all those guys on the track. Had a great time hanging out and meeting everybody. So, what were the result of the eliminations?

Nab won the day cheers The black bat was just consistant all day long, after he got out of the right lane. The right lane always sucks, always has sucked.

Nice vids, Billy. I especiallly like the one of the buns n legs. Smile

Crono.... smh. Razz

Nab ended up winning, beating Mike Kender in the final round.

I'm sure I have some pics. I gotta unload 'm off my camera. I haven't even looked at them yet!

Had a great time!

Next time we do this we need to combine everyone into a single camp. It was tiring walking from Crovo's car to Nab's and back. Everyone needs to learn to park together so I can drool more efficiently. I'd love to have seen Crovo parked next to BK. That would have made for an awesome pic. Cool

And for all those who missed it, Nab and BK and those guys are alot cooler than they come across online. I was intimidated by Roswell and BK at first and then it turns out they are really cool guys to hang with. And Nab has got to be the happiest person I ever met. I've never seen someone so excited to lose a race, and we all missed seeing it cause we were watching wheel studs get replaced in record time in the pits Laughing

Yeah, those guys are ITG's, but teddy bears in person. Wink Don't tell no one though!

And I tried to get everyone to park together, but some people can't understand directions. Razz

Here's a link to my measely 40 pics...

This whole day was "Bella Approved"


Sort of... Wink

hey Crovo, did you figure out the cylinder issue yet? Hopefully it's just a bad rotor in the opti or maybe some moisture got into it or something. Keep us updated on what happened.

I did not. Haven't looked at it. Or thought about it, even. I've got enough stuff to do with that car that it's safe to say I won't be driving it for a while. I still need to get Big Ugly out of my garage!

I'm almost ashamed to admit I found out why my car ran so slow. No first gear! All along I was looking for ignition problems 'cause the way the exhaust sounds but #1 thinks my mufflers are just falling apart.

So I took 15 minutes today to change the shift solenoid, change the engine oil, take a break for a smoke, and replace the tilt lever knob. Now I can burn rubber again (well at least on 1 tire).

Maybe that is my problem. I thought you get a check engine light with a bad solenoid? Did you get a CEL Jim?

No check engine light. I found it when I hooked up a PC. If I was more "one with the car" or had a tach I'm sure I would have noticed earlier. I swear it now runs better now in every gear. I kinda thought RPMs seemd a little high (no 4th either) but dismissed it 'cause of the exhaust noise. Ihave this real nice almost backfire type noise when I let up on the throttle.

You can test for open solenoids or wiring at the PCM connector. I can look up the pin numbers if you like. I did find one post where the owner had a bad PCM.

That would be great Jim. I would like to be able to test these things. I bet changing the solenoid envolves removing the valve body. Neutral

Shitf 1-2 pin B7
Shift 2-3 pin B12
Common 12v is Under Hood fuse #5. The PCM provides ground to engage the solenoid.
Resistance is around 20 ohms.

No need to remove the valve body. It will only take 1 minute longer than it takes to change the oil. The solenoid is held in by a spring clip. Just remove the clip and it literally pops out. Be careful of the connector, the plastic is quite brittle. I broke the retaining tab. Second time around I found it easier to remove the clip first then the connector.



On that other forum.

No need to move the wiring harness out of the way as shown in the vid.
