      I think if anything it would be nice to have the most experienced track drivers go first to set the pace. Would definitely help stop the log jamming that always ends up happening.

      You guys will want to hit up moonshiner and the road to robbinsville at night. Then you can really stretch your legs.

      I'm not going to be there but good idea for any cruise...as long as no one who thinks they can keep up hurts themselves or others trying to. Sometimes, ego takes over sense at these kinds of things but most the cruises I've been on turn out really well and everyone has a lot of fun.

      We've had a few casualties. From people out driving themselves to off road guard rail adventures. Hot E brakes slipping..

      Might want to bring wheel choks.

      Parking at the lodge is an incline.

      If you guys are getting a workout it's worth considering.

      Will be fun to see other boosted R's. I probably follow the experienced drivers since I am a WiTW virgin.

      Data from Tristan (Further Performance) looks good.

      Zev: Tristan and I came up with plan to have the ecu manage the hi/low setting change of your Hue-Jass fuel pump control.

      Further delivered the goods on the hardware side: Its all working

      Now its my turn to deliver on the ecu side.

      Funny how launch control and NLS were gimmicks when Matt bought it to med9.
      Now others are using it to make people think the sun shines out of their 4$$.

      It's looking VERY good. Can't wait for Saturday. Was worried wouldn't figure out the fuel glitch, but it's sorted now. Thanks for helping tonight. You're second to none Jeff. Soooo close now.

      Do you like our little surge tank? Cute eh

      How many seconds of WOT does that tank net you?

      Thats a bit tough to say.....

      Like so:
      We don't 'use' the surge tank until the engine's needs are greater than the lift pump can flow.

      The bigger question: does Zev have the ka-hone-es to hold WOT long enough to drain the surge tank?

      Until the road runs out.

      We shall see. I think I have them, but I sense the 1 gallon tank will last long enough to leave little opportunity in most practical situations to ever run out.

      Might need some ground effect mods and a huge ass rear spoiler.

      The aerodynamics aren't matched to the power. Might need a taller 5th/6th. I'm up for it though.



      UPDATE:

      It looks like the fueling issue has been resolved. Some road logging was just done and sent to Jeff at UM to see if it looks good. Dyno is scheduled for tomorrow morning. If it checks out, I've got one day to put some miles on driving around the city to make sure everything holds tight (lines, clamps, electrical etc). Will be leaving for WiTW Thursday AM if all works out. So close now, was very worried I wasn't going to make it. But it's 80% now, perhaps 98% if the dyno work goes well.

      When you have so many mechanical mods and doing work right up to day before a 20 hour road trip, there's lots to go wrong.

      Mine makes power but is otheriwise plain jane. There will be plenty of R's worth seeing. The R36 monster wookie is what I want to see. And all of the other FI monsters gathered in one place with their grandpa of power, Jeff Atwood.

      Thank you sir.

      My odds of departure for WiTW just went up. Jeff says the logging done on-road looks excellent. Dyno is 10am tomorrow. Literally, this is where the rubber meets the road. Wish me luck.
