Boy Blunder Posted February 16, 2012 Report Share Posted February 16, 2012 I'm afraid the Batmobile (very non-cheaty 1995 Saturn SL with AIV well below $500) has to be blamed for the first engine failure of the weekend and the dispensing of 5 quarts of Castrols finest on the track during the third lap of the race. Apparently the nice man at the junkyard who sold us this engine to replace the one we lost with a blown head gasket during VIR 's blisterfest LIED !!!. He told us the engine had just been rebuilt before the car was in an accident that sent it to the junkyard. It sure seemed to run nicely when we had it idling in the garage. Thought you all might enjoy the picture." Do you think we can fix it with some JB Weld?"There's another similar hole through the bottomOur team would like to thank Mike and the Chumpstaff for being so accomadating in quickly getting us teched and approved to run our backup car. It was the frst time we ran the Conturd since buying it from another team over the winter. It still has some teething pains to even be mid pack competitive. . Seemed OK through the turns but just wouldn't develop power on the straights.We've learned to adapt in this series with different goals for different races - for this one we simply were happy to still be running at the checkered flag on Sun.Special thanks to the team that brought the gold Audi on Sun. You made our day having someone we could actually pass! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
