Mid-Ohio

Everyone ready? I personally am about to start reassembly of my carb on my coffee table. Everything should be okay though.

Well I hope that I have my transmission fixed this time.(note to self: don't speedshift 5th gear) The blocker ring was shoved all the way up onto the gear out of reach of the now busted synchronizer. I was shifting with no help from those parts. We took the trans out, fixed it, and put it back in on Saturday. Also, when I was under the car, I discovered a leaking rear axle seal. (I almost have that fixed), and a huge hole where the downstream smog tube used to be in my exhaust. I fixed that on Saturday as well. Now I just need to build a backup transmission,bleed the brakes, and bed the rear brake pads(dynos work real good for this) before we leave on Friday morning. Oh yeah, and sometime I guess I should work on the customer cars.

I'm ready to hit it. Leaving early Friday morning in hopes of getting there at a decent time on Friday. Looks to be about 480miles. Not *that* bad I suppose.

haha, good, I am glad I am not the only one scrambling to get done Beau. I hope the racing is just as good as RA. I know there are some fast guys out there from last year and I really need to have a good run cause I am getting tired of looking at the backs of your cars!

I am leaving fri. morning as well, and if I remember it was about a 9 hr. ride for me. it sucks cause I will be makeing this trip alone also, I am having a hard time finding crew members to help me lately

I'll either be arriving at the hotel Thurs. eve or at the track Friday morning. I need as much seat time as I can get. 1st time out on the Toyos and I have a few suspensions issue to sort out.

Stop by if you need a hand with anything!

Would you like me to describe the back of your car for you? I have spent plenty of time looking at it. I am betting that we will have plenty of good racing at Mid-O, There are a bunch of fast guys up there. It is 8.5 hours for us. I hope to get up there mid afternoon.


Dave, I thought you ran AIX. Are you going to play with the AI boys this year?

Being the test mule for new parts is cool until something doesn't work. My trick 5th gear is STILL on the fritz. This thing just aint gonna work! I put the car on the dyno last night to check out 5th gear, and it is worse now than it was at RA. Fortunately I had started on the backup trans earlier in the week and was about 2/3 done. So last night I finished the back up trans, and put it in. I am here early this morning to hopefully finish up. Then back up on the dyno, and a quick bath and on to the trailer. I have a very dedicated father. When he heard the car was still messed up, he came over and started taking it apart while I finished the trans. Thanks dad.


Bob, we may have to do some tape swapping at some point. I have a buddy who might be able to edit them together. It would be cool to see the race action from both cars.

Bob and Beau,

If you guys can get me those video's I'd be happy to post a lap or two of you guys duelling it out on the americanironeast.com website. The website's new format is much more easy to update for those kind of files.

Actually if anyone has photos or media of any of the events I'd be happy to post that stuff on the site.

you can email me at aieast@americanrion-east.com

Thanks and I look forward to see you all race this weekend!

Did everyone make it back from MID-SNOHIO in one piece? We got home about 12:30 this morning(not too bad).

Made it home just fine, the head wind was a bit of a bear. I figure I should thaw out by Thursday.

Great seeing everyone there! It was good to finally meet Shugg.
Let's do it again sometime, just pick a warmer weekend...geez. By the way, I hear Toyo is going to manufacture a spec snow tire for next year.

ehhh, yea I made it in at about 3:30 am. needlesss to say I didn't make it to work today, bummer because its only April and I am almost out of vacation time.

I'd swear that snow storm had it out for me, not only did I have to drive through the snow on the track, then I had to drive through it in the western Penn. mountains on my bald ass tires that are on my van. I got to drive my race car sideways all weekend, then my tow rig too for a while there. 40 mph owned me. But I am happy I made it and another day off work isnt the worst thing that could have happened.
