      Finally fixed my engine fan. Ordered one from SPAL and hooked it up to the fog light switch. Ran it through the fusebox as well as another 30 amp fuse built into the wire right after the fan. So happy I got it fixed.

      Next is the rear brakes and exhaust! /sigh

      I want a new car so badly. smiley3.gif

      Site is broken and isn't sending me the confirmation e-mail to cancel my account.

      Good game. I smell a conspiracy. Cancelling my account isn't supposed to be this complicated...

      Well, I've decided to remove my account Saturday. After reading the posts made this past twelve hours while I was asleep, I've come to the conclusion that the boards on which I post have turned into a place for regulars to flame and bash other people. It really disgusts me.

      My efforts to have a serious conversation are pretty much in vain, because when I do try to say something serious the comment(s) are thrown face down into the dirt by someone who doesn't agree and would much rather laugh and cuss at me than debate their argument.

      I'm seriously disappointed in what these forums have become over the past six months or so. Inferno got his Mini and has gone from a very cool guy to a pompous biggot (it's hard for me to find a post he has made where he doesn't brag about his Mini or his amazing driving abilities). Then the five or six newcomers who stepped in were, of course, thrown into this crappy environment to begin with and don't realize how they should be acting. I don't know whether to blame to people or lack of moderation to be honest. As much as I like Pixie, I think there needs to be someone to slap these kids on the wrists when they start showing their age. And to slap the older people in the face when they start acting like the kids. *shrug*

      On the flipside, it was fun. I enjoyed chatting with those of you who decided to remain mature on the boards, and I hope you'll all rub off on some other people there. dedalus thanks for tagging me a sponsorship when mine ran out, and if I run into you at a race somewhere I'll buy you a beer. If you were on my friends list, I kept it small for a reason. Take this as my personal 'good-bye' to each of you. smiley8.gif

      Later guys. smiley0.gif

    • Upside to the crappy weekend:

      I got to do seven hot laps around VIR. My tires and brakes didn't really like it, but I was pacing with an MR2 that was being driven by a regular club driver. Made me feel alot better.

      And man, I'm realizing why the E36 chassis has had such success in the racing industry. With just springs on my car, it handles and corners like a dream. I love it.

      However, I still plan on getting rid of it and making room for the S4. smiley0.gif

    • VIR Weekend

      13 years ago

      MonkeyMagik

      ...is only halfway over, and I'm already being constantly reminded why I hate working SCCA Club events. Once you step over the line from amateur (no offense to anyone out there) into professional racing, it's hard to go back. In Timing and Scoring, they are running six timing systems (five backups). When I run T&S for American GT, I run it alone. One computer/decoder. A piece of paper. A pen. And of course when something happens that throws a hitch into things, people start screaming and begin acting like the building is on fire. There is no sense of order or professionalism at all.

      And it doesn't stop at T&S. All day we had EV (Emergency Vehicles) dispatching wreckers and ambulances onto the race surface without even telling control or any of the stewards. Needless to say, this sparked a bit of controversy between the five SOMs (Stewards of the Meet) and they began squabbling over what needs to be done and how to do it. Again, in Pro Racing you have one steward who is god. His word is golden and final. None of this drama bullshit.

      So I'm sitting at a computer (running one of the five backups that I finally got working after two hours) and the Chief of Timing and Scoring's mother walks in. Cool, right? Nah. She immediately starts to shout orders and starts taking over the whole deal, moving people around and demanding this and that. Of course I get knocked off of where I had been all weekend, and am forced to sit in front of a ten foot long window writing the numbers of cars down on a sheet of paper as they go by. Now while this might not sound so bad, for someone who has been doing this shit for almost eight years straight it starts to lose it's appeal. It's basically an insult to my abilities to stick me down in a spot that should have been filled by one of the seven volunteers there. But it's cool. I smile and say 'sure' and go about my business. Then the damned woman starts smoking. I'm allergic to cigarette smoke, and my throat starts closing up.

      Shit can only stack so high before I take a bat to the person stacking it.



      I'm looking forward to another fun-filled day at the track tomorrow. Be happy you aren't me.

      Is anyone experienced with Photoshop? I wanted to make a signature picture for some forums I chat on. I would ask someone to do it for me, but I would rather just get advice from someone on how to get started and learn the program myself.

      Does anyone know of a good tutorial or walkthrough website for making simple stuff?

      When it comes to World of Warcraft, I'm an addict and a member of a premier end-game guild. Often we find ourselves fighting crap that's extremely hard for some of the people to comprehend. These guys have a hard time keeping up and concentrating, and would be hard-pressed to beat the coordination of a six month old.

      Now I told you that to tell you this: Our guild leader just recommended we use this as a punishment for the retards who keep getting us all killed and wasting hours upon hours of our time.

      I'm all for it.

      Yeah, its weird, I have never been the one that people go to for advice because I am usually down to the point and sometimes it comes across harshly, but all my friends know they can come to me, but they know I am going to be brutally honest with me. Again, thanks for the advice it is greatly appreciated. Dont hold back because telling me something because if I dont want peoples advice I wont post it on here.

      Oh, my friendAngela isnt the friend that told me she wanted to die, Angela is the girl I like right now, who happens to be this girls friend. See, I think the same way as you, I feel like I am obligated to make her happy when I am around her so she can temporarily forget her problems at home. Thanx for the advice though, it was nice to hear that.

      i don't know what the tests will have, but there's several different sections you can take it in. you can just take it in egines, brakes, diesel, parts, pretty much anything. there's even a master certification for everything.

    • stlranger

      no, but i'm thinking i should. only thing is i believe you have to have 2 years experience in your field, which i don't have yet.

      i assumed so.

      if the mechanic thing doesn't work out you could just go to a trade school, put that auto-mechanic dexterity to use and you can still make a living.

      then again, you seem pretty intent on doing your thing. never a bad thing at all.

      I'm in England and I watched Top Gun today. They did the new Ford GT and Stig took it around the track. Apparently it was faster than the Ferrari putting it in third place overall.
      Only 28 of those cars are coming to England and Clarkson is buying one of them.
      I'm going to see if I can track down some DVDs for you.

      yeah, i have been mtn biking for about 5 years now. A buddy of mine got me into it since he is an avid rider. I do about 1-2 dirt rides and 1-2 road rides a week, nothing too long 8-12 miles at most... I love it.

      I have a 2002 Specialized Enduro Pro for dirt Riding and a really old school Specialized Rock Hopper with Road Tires for my road riding... I can't afford a real road bike yet.....
