    Dang that sucks about your car man!

    We just got home about an hour ago. Left Fontana at 5 this morning.

    Haha I made it to the sporty thumbnails in a Saturn wagon

    I also got back about an hour ago. Too much damn driving. Also got an enormous rock chip in my windshield in Chattanooga. Also in Chattanooga I got stuck in traffic for 2 hours and there was torrential rain. Happy to say my top is water tight. Only noticed a tiny drip while sitting still in the heaviest of rain. Like a drop every 2 minutes.

    So next year i think I'm going to book for 4 nights, not 2 lol.

    About an hour from home I developed what sounded maybe like rod knock above 80mph. My plastic lower splash shield may have lost a screw when I fell into the pit and from the air speed finally fell down in the back. It would flop around worse over certain speeds. Zipties for the win but at first I was in panic mode

    I think your cousin found a clip from that but it was all screwed up.

    MP2 5th and 8.5-1 compression while running A/C was kinda lame on those hills coming to and from. I'm confident enough now a days that I can build a safe 9.5-1 boosted build. I'm not going to tear into the motor just yet but I think the next time I do I'm going back to stock compression.

    Fuel economy seemed really good though. 40-43* of timing while cruising helped with that

    What fuel economy were you estimating? I averaged 28 coming home at 80mph and ac on. A bit of a headwind. On the way up I was getting 30.

    According to quick math I got 31mpg there and back. Not bad with 4 people in the car running A/C the whole time.

    Pretty sure I could get 40mpg highway with a stock compression motor.

    Running the dragon on the other hand she was thirsty.
