The cleanup on the carbon fiber rideplate, REALLY cleaned up the handling in smooth water!

I want to change the cooling system to match the blackbird's now. I LOVE the new divorced 1/2"NPT inlet on the blackbird. I'm also going to work on the one-way valve plumbing. Those M/F 1/2" street elbows are rather restrictive, compared to F/F 1/2"NPT Females with male 1/2" connectors. Cheap fix.

Also FINALLY found a silver glove box lid, so that the top deck now matches!


John Carter at Canyon lake in October. It's in the 80's again this week. I "might" go out tomorrow.

Not sure I've ever finished a ski in my life.

I think I'm delivering it to the MHahn race... not to race that day. Looks like No/So-Cal is getting another GPRXP.

Jim picked up approx 10mph, and massive acceleration with some serious nozzle work, a Rude2, and a larger intercooler. I don't think he wants ACTUAL mph floating about right now. I think he has some covert Nor-Cal plans in the works.

He also had to take apart the rear engine cover and clean out some gummed up red-loctite from my 08 squirter install. Almost fried a SC!
