36 consecutive hours or, like the Maserati Bi-Turbo, 36 total hours over the past 20 years?

It'd be fun to found a beater Disco and stuff in something more "main stream". At Crapital Offense, there was a Suzuki X-90 with a Mazda Pinata drivetrain b/c it's more reliable - too bad they decided to completely re-do their fuel system on Saturday morning. On the plus side, they did all the work in front of Black Flag so we had entertainment for both days...

So, this Thurs at Kilroys?

Anyone happen to know a local source for re-charging 7100's (i.e. nitrogen). I've got two that are def in need in rebuild but 2 that may well just need to be re-charged and they'll be back in the fight.

The only place I found in NoVA was Iron Pig Offroad in Fredericksburg. I think it was $20/shock.

Well....if all the planets align, the river doesn't flood, there is no nuclear holocaust, and the zombies don't roam the earth...I will be gracing you with my presents along with my 110.
Actually...bring on the zombies....

Heck Richmond is only a three or four hour slow bumper-to-bumper crawl up I-95 to Kilroy's.

Work if you can believe it. Don't worry your speedo is happily running up the miles without any attention from me.

Just got back from a 1.5 hour drive in the 110. If its this flipping hot you can forget the 110....unless it gets cooler with the floor back in.
There is something to be said about a p38 with ice cold a/c.

I'm out for the next few months. Conflict with the schedule.

Charles and Jason... Your parts are going to be at HH via RURR.

Thu is supposed to be the hottest day this week - I may wander down there BUT in something with a/c that doesn't rattle along at 50ish mph, punctuated by vapor lock and mildly unpredictable steering - in other words, NOT in my LR.
