Vizard in his books shows ceramic coating of the combustion chambers, the valves, the piston tops, and the inlet and exhaust tracts.  He claims there are benefits.  Talk with some of the locals here say this is true.  This might be something you can do for next year that will not be a radical expense or change.  You might have done it.  This build diary is bigger than a Shanghai phone book and it is hard to remember everything in it.

Bo,
next time I pull it down it will get some more ceramic coating
Which reminds me , Sandrew,(Andrew, the Sandblaster and Ceramic guy)  had suggested some sort of coating on the diff gears which
makes them run cooler. something I should have thought about two weeks ago.

I was planning on banning you until you did something with S.O.S.

You are now just on probation and have to continue to work or the ban will be applied.

You escaped by the width of the scar on the body panel.

FREUD

Amicus curiae

To: Judge FREUD -

The defendants have clearly demonstrated the "good faith effort" that the court requires. 

Five months out to Gairdner?

Given the defendants previous records, both on and off of the track, they're clearly ahead of schedule.

A plea for leniency is what justice prescribes.

Respectfully submitted.

To whom it may be of value:

This court has no friends.

In light of the defendant having changed from his birth

name and no court record of that deceptive move we

are treating this as an obvious attempt to deceive the

court.

We will hear a plea from his Mother because she probably knows who he is.

If she doesn't defend him he is SOL.

Watch my lips. Don't interupt me when I am talking.

Hi There Punch,

I saw my mother last week, she recognized me initially then shortly after asked me if James was coming too, her evidence would be deemed inadmissable. I plead to the court that although my BFs are, on paper inconsistant, that there is a consistant behavioural thread that is undeniable and I will be able to call upon sufficient number of witnesses happy to identify me as "that a**hole."

This will be the sixth meet we will have prepared for....tried for 2007, tried for and were ready for 2008, went 2009, went 2010, prepared for( car on truck ready to drive off) 2011, cancelled, didn't intend to race 2012(cancelled anyway) went 2013.

I can categorically say I feel the best informed and least stressed about the coming meet, the least unknowns, the least amount of planned alterations to the car(*). So it should be a complete schemozzle.

Hey Pa, I'm just fishing out my banned book( I need it to remind me of the places that I'm not welcome/allowed, it gets hard to remember them), I had penciled us in there too......

The Reverend seems to have some big plans in the wings that may involve the international stage, not just the US but possibly the UK as well. It seems if we hit the intended mark at Gairdner this year that he may have found some coin to get us to Speedweek, and then to ship the car over to him in the UK to work on another body.

Hey Jon, isn't it about time you said something about wetted area? :evil:

(*)raise steering wheel( gut creep), revise gearbox selectors, add axle fairings, repair body damage, clean to-do list blackboard, other things.
