Nothing nice here.

Actually there may be a good list.

Scott Leonard: Will win it with the greatest of ease but will probably DNF on the last stage because his arm will fall off or he'll be a victom of Animal Strikes.

Grant Huges: Will finish the race but with hardly any body pannels left on the car.

Ryan Mclaughlin: Will have a strange off in the exact same place I did.

Dave Kern: Will be protested out of the race

Jimmy Keeney: So will Jimmy

John Con: Will have this random Incredible Hulk fit of rage and finish top 5 over all

Don Con: Will be chilling an dnf over a bum throttle body

Jeremy Brown: Will experience time penalties after an awesome race like we did in idaho

Brian Short: Won't have a navigator

Tommy Kil: Bust an axle again

Mike Kil: Will do just fine

Andrew Morton: Will somehow get lost and race full rally speed all the way to Wyoming before he realizes what went wrong.

Tom Wright: Won't pass exemption

Mike Rose: Will be Mike Rose

Me: I'll end up dismembering a few toes before the race in a freak firework accident

Alissa: Alissa will DNS because she's helping me with my toes.

Bis: Will finish strong but his Franken-Motor will explode in a glorious fasion over the final stage finsih control. He won't be able to make it back to Parc-Expose and will be technically disqualified.

Mark: Mark will never find the funding to compete.

not too soon. i was just thinking about how ironic that would be. you'll have to mark it in the stage notes for me. then i can go looking for the old battery and other random parts when i'm waiting for the wrecker to pick me up.

That would be a dream come true honestly.

I don't think you'll lose any toes before the event, but I do think you and AJ will set a new record for the most number of minutes time penalty for a Colorado driver, surpassing your old record set a few weeks ago.

Alissa will be pissed the whole event because the ******* in sweep kept bumping her from behind on stage.

Sterling will pass out at the end of each day due to the exhaustion of running around the service park once Scott's pulled out, trying to see if he can help anyone else out. Thankfully he's there though because the only other service guys are the Conley's crew, Keeney's crew, Ty, and Troy, all of whom keep disappearing into the horse arena with some large group of mountain girls that came to get Pastrana's autograph leaving the service park nearly empty. Mark chooses to withdraw from the event at the first service so he can join in on the service crew fun. I consider it, but thanks to my super codriver doing all the service on the car, I'm able to sneak into the horse arena for most of every single service, though I do nearly pass out on the way to the final leg on Saturday due to drinking too much on Friday and not eating anything at the service stops since I was too busy. We had to stop at the gas station and grab me a corn dog.

it'll be hard to identify the exact spot using the route book...
unless you recruit an experienced navi, you won't be running stage notes.

at least that saves you 150.00...

good luck getting the car ready for COG. don't hesitate to ask for help from the CRC.

I'm thinking AJ won't make that mistake again... It was sad when he realized the mistake. he was really disappointed and sorry.

Mitch did a great job of maintaining his composure when receiving the news...

dont you have like a month and a half to go?
Month and a half for you to find a ride and convince at least one of the PNW weenies to come out and try to keep up. :)

Technically, it's exactly seven weeks until we need to be there and 51 days until day one.

Your engine's has had a bent rod since what, May or so. There's always like 17 Hondas at the junkyard.

Mitch is going to kung fu kick one of the other competitors in the face at the Parc Expose in a whiskey fueled rage, partly because they were being jerks about running the Checkpoint stickers that were required since he was an event sponsor but mostly because we all told him he should.

I can't even begin to describe what Aaron does after drinking too much whiskey at the Parc Expose. You're just going to have to be there.

That was kinda my point.

On a side note, I'm getting sick of blowing up old worn out engines so I thought I'd put something good together. Then I got sidetracked. Seems to me that I fit in just fine around here.

don't worry you've got the last minute to get everything done...

are you going run the welded diff with the turbo engine? or is a proper diff part of the new deal?

A proper diff is part of the deal (in a closer-ratio tranny), but surely not by RFKAC. If I get another junkyard B18 or even get my long block rebuilt and stuffed in by then I'll be happy. We'll see...



...and yes, I am the master of last minute.

What did I do to deserve that?
Errata: When ya start bouncing between different sanctioning organizations, where all time cards look somewhat similar, but are distinctly different at the same time- things all kind of start to look the same... I didnt think this was a topic of conversation for public forum, but the synopsis of what happened goes (for all those who think that I am some sort of moron): for RA cards, I add straight across (easy) and have a spot to mark my time additions in a convenient little box. SOME NASA time cards have annoying arrows that one has to follow around the card, until they come to the time in box at the bottom, top or wherever. Its easy when coming to a time control, where everyone is lined up, etc. However, when coming to a MTC, where you can check in early and there is no line is when I made my mistake of adding straight down the time card instead of following the arrow from stage time + transit time = time in.
Simply, it was a stupid mistake and thank you Scott, I did feel horrible about it and I am still kicking myself in consideration that Mitch and I could have placed 2nd or 3rd overall for the rally.
To offer some type of jusification-- it happened and I didnt even scan my time card and add 3-4 times like a good co-driver should. I have also been co-driving for almost 4 years now, and this happens to even skilled co-drivers, and I know it was a "greenhorn" mistake.
A answer Scott's statement of "will he ever make this mistake again?" The answer is a big, fat NO.

I understand how you did it and sorry for already teasing you about it. I got Erik and I lost on transit in Oregon and we went like five miles or so before I realized it. I think we were three minutes late to ATC due to that little error.

Another rumor I heard is that AJ was going to be showing up in his new FIA approved nomex cowboy racing boots. :)
