    Is it OK to resent Sunny Mondays after a cold rainy day of autocrossing
    at the Fort Rain Grissom autocross?
    Of all the heats mine was the least rainy--see how desparate I am--
    and all but the last of the 5 runs actually had some decent grip.
    Lookin around at my heat I realized that I was in the "large" car heat;
    was that just a coincidence?
    I told my wife that I was just going for the visiting anyway and
    that turned out to be mostly true. One of my Ft Wayne friends-Scott
    Woosley was moving to Missouri quite soon.
    Some of my friends wiped my Lexan windshield at the start of my
    runs. Wipers and Rainex don't work on plastic. I will never have a
    plastic winsheld again. Some of my friends seemed to forget that they
    had windshield wipers.
    The course was familiar by the big sweeper on the south(prison) end
    and there was a clockwise sweeper on the north end that is taken
    correctly led into a chicane that could be taken as a straight if you
    aimed just right. This was followed my a challenging slalom which I
    made cleanly, if slowly.
    Scott Lewis in the ":purple pylon eater" tube frame Camaro trounced
    me. Scott played the game exactly right--he had one clean run. I,
    embarassingly, only had one dirty run--should have been trying harder!
    Our lady CPer did not wimp out and made a gallant effort.
    My new experiment by quieting my turbo by a large expansion chamber
    right at the turbo exhaust outlet seemed to work and also picked up
    some boost response.
    I will take this old guy all day on this Sunny Monday to catch
    up--How about a rule where old 65+ geezers don't have to work?
    Now to get the Roadster out of monthballs now that the Stinger is
    mostly ready for the
    Corvair Olympics and the convention.

    Warren
