EFI Logics Open House

The car and I headed down to Bethel CT for EFI Logics open house/bbq/dyno day this past weekend. Again the weather was pleasant although at 5:30 am the usual fall morning chill was in the air.

Arriving a bit early to file into our VIP space we were greeted with the sounds of boxer engine galore. Cars from NY, NJ, CT, MA and RI came out to support EFI and have a fun day of cars and car talk. Some very fine examples were present and believe it or not the rally car got some decent attention. She definitely did not win any dyno or show prizes but if there was a vote for most stickers, most metal bars and  “item less” interior, I’m sure she would have taken home first!

I left the car in the talented hands of Chris, Jack and Matt at EFI for some work; possibley a few surprises 🙂

I’ll have some returned pictures and updates before Philo !!

3+ miles of Hillclimbing fun…

Well another weekend of hillclimb is over. Ascutney was a very fun mountain and we couldn’t ask for better weather. The sun graced us with its presence all weekend and what a weekend it was. The mountain is the longest of the season running over 3 miles with close to 30 turns. A mix of speed and handling were the keys to a fast finish. I took 6th overall out of 45 drivers and 4th in class. The car managed to take the beating that the upper mountain road dished out without any hiccups. Next stop is Philo at the end of October and I’ve got my fingers crossed to make it up there!

Here are some pics of the car in action!

Ascutney Hillclimb II

Packing the car up after a quick fluids change and some other normal maintenance. I’ll be packing up my GoPro camera this time and getting some nice video of the runs. The weather looks like it’s going to be great all weekend with your typical fall VT temperatures.

Departing this afternoon and hoping to make it for tech check on time for once!

I will be updating with pics, videos and words some point in time so check back.

 

For all that are Rally fans, Black River Stages will be going on this weekend as well in New York. Check out NASArallysport.com for some updates and live coverage. We’ll be there someday, someday…
