  1. Car has been sold. Best of luck to the new owners.
  2. Flim Flam Speed in RVA does good work, but seems too late at this point.
  3. Pic from the garage today, she has a few marks from her exploits since the other picture.
  4. So you either want to get into this whole grassroots endurance road racing thing, or all-ready are currently involved but are not satisfied with your current whip? Well we have decided to part with our big Audi V8 Quattro. We have not run her in two years and most likely won't as we continue "working on" our TT and another E30. Nothing quite like the sound of the big(wish) V8 thundering down the back straight and if it ever rains, you will be a man among boys as your competitors slide and wriggle trying to get grip. Car comes complete with everything one needs to get started: the ONE and ONLY new OEM engine was purchased 4 years ago and the car probably has less that 20 race hours on it since, 22 gallon fuel cell and swirl pot and enough A/N hoses and fittings to make your local refinery jealous. We have done a great deal of "R&D" on finding what will break with this car, as such, it now has brakes that will last an endurance race and tires that will as well. Belts and window net are 2015, has all of the safety gear ready to roll. We have acquired 3 of these cars over the years, two of the 76 manual transmission cars brought to the US. We have many spare body panels, a spare transmission and two sets of wheels and tires with zero run time on them. WIth the new engine, fuel cell, cage etc, we probably have over 10k in the car in parts alone. If you are an Audi fan/mechanic and know how to convert this thing to a mega squirt/AEM aftermarket ignition, I am sure there is a great deal of power left on the table. All this for the low-low price of $4500!
  5. I would love to see this as I was behind the wheel when it happened. The TT was a bit faster than the supra on the nascar section of the track and I had pulled up to about 4-5 feet from his back bumper. I saw his hand resting outside the window and I thought maybe he was either getting fresh air or pointing me by so I started to move the inside when his brake lights came on. "Oh boy," was not what I said to myself as I hit the brakes thinking he was pitting, at which point I was along for the ride. I severely flat spotted all four tires and broke something in the incredibly fragile drivetrain. When I went to retrieve the video card is when I realized that we forgot to put it in that morning. We parked the car the majority of the day, then later decided to remove the center driveshaft that went kaput and run FWD. After much wrestling, the offending part was removed and the TT accomplished something it had never before done, crossed the finish line under the checkered flag.
  6. Probably the only time my team missed me all weekend.
  7. Its even better if you read it aloud in your best Yoda voice, fits the grammar nicely.
  8. No problem and thanks for the apology. I too apologize for my response to the situation that night as I was too confrontational in my opinion. Thanks for offering help the next day as we struggled with our cars.
  9. Thanks for the input guys. One of us usually considers the E30 to be "race ready" when we put that one extra quart in just before the race. Not sure why he likes to wait till then, but he's the one that makes em work again when we break them so we just stand back and watch...then tease endlessly that she's now "race ready."
  10. So, after our Monday lunch meeting/unload, good news to report. Compression is good on all cylinders on the TT but someone may have put in 6qts of oil when capacity is listed at 4.8 explaining the copious amount of oil throughout the engine bay. We are still trying to figure out why it lost power and was making a racket when coming in hot off the track. Anyone know any secrets about the oiling system on a vw 1.8T? The M3 has a hose that came loose after the off road excursion that those of us at the race were not aware existed as our team mate who assembled the engine was on vacation. Now we just need to rebuild the from entd and we should be ready to go out and break it again!
  11. Well, The TT finally made it out on track under its own power and made it a glorious 17 minutes at full chat! We may have had an over-rev/money shift occur but we ill see when we diagnose this week, oil came out of lots of places and it sounds like something inside is no longer where it should be. The M3 was running well with one of our newest team members who may have learned what "lift oversteer" is at South Bend, sending him off in the grass, splitter digging in destroying the front end and knocking something loose that we could not find, but the throttle is now stuck wide open, despite the throttle mechanism not moving. Less than an hour and both cars were done. At least we were close to home.
  12. Absolutely, it could snow, or be 60, like it has been in the last 24hrs.
