Tony, that's a complicated way of getting a drink. I had a plastic bottle mounted behind me in my F2 car. All you had to do was suck on the pipe. We used straight Coke at first but it gassed up from all the Gs and started pumping on it's own. Then we mixed it 50/50 with Captain Morgan. Less gas, much better. :-D :cheers:

Tony while waiting in line after filling your cup with your fav toddy you could put it a CNC machined polished and ano'ed very trick cup holder, now that would be styling.

Just thinking you can do that today on your big bird ride, enjoy the trip

Mike, Its a little complicated, but once its all hooked up just push the button on the wheel for a cool drink. 

Don, No cups, just a line from the beverage dispenser. I am going to use the 16hrs to rest on the flight.  Tony

I went low tech at World of Speed.  I was flirting with a pretty girl at the starting line and handed her my drink to hold until I got back after making a run (canned soda).  The pop was cold and she was hot.  By the time I got back to the starting line (about an hour) both were not so much.  I need to get either a cooler or a faster recovery vehicle.  Sorry for the thread jack, back to regularly scheduled programming.

In the mid 80's I raced a street stock car on the dirt oval at Baylands Raceway and had an all female crew. I felt like Foyt when I had to jump out of the car to work  on my car during pit stops. It was a fun time in my life.  :-D  :-o :evil: Tony

Just came  back from my trip overseas and found a nice care package from Roush.  I have been asking for these hub heaters for awhile and had almost given up on them, but they finally showed up. Since we are running oil instead of grease in the front and rear hubs, the heaters will bring the oil up to optimal operating temperature. One more piece of the puzzle checked off. Tony
