    You baby boomers taking all the good jobs from us millennials! Arrrh! J/K

    Got my tickets for Limerock. Depending on weather we will probably just take the Jeep. The REPU is running fine now but I havenít tried towing with it, and itís not a comfy drive in hot weather.

    Update on the Rx7. I took it to a Track night last month at NHMS and on the final cool down lap of the evening I blew out a coolant seal between the block and water pump housing. Tried to top off the radiator but it wouldnít hold so AAA towed me home. I ran into the SCCA IT7 crew and one of the guys lent me a different intake manifold to try. Instead of wrapping around, this one goes straight in. It puts the injectors closer to the intake ports which helps a lot with idle. It should kill the low end torque even more, but allow it to rev higher. Butt dyno confirms its gutless below 5,000 and screaming over 7,000. Gotta get it back on the real dyno to confirm.

    I know right?! So selfish.

    Your RX7 build makes me want to spend so much money that I dont have on the miata or in buying my p5 replacement. Gotta stop coming here.

    i just wanna drive mine again

    I love listening to the kids whine.

    So far so good with the new job. Not hard just need to be careful with the finished rims. Chevy van with AC and mostly city driving, dealerships and body shops. 5-7 hours a day, earliest start is 10am, usually done by 4-5pm.

    Autox tomorrow and then taking the 3 to Montreal to see a buddy and check the hwy MPG.

    Have a good weekend everyone.

    hey my job is "great". My commute is 3.5 miles, i get paid handsomely, benefits are unreal. Just the work itself is rather boring and rarely do I do any design or true engineering. We get summer hours until labor day (work four 9 hour days then one 4 hour on Friday), so im out at noon and off to VT!

    The main thing Ill complain about is how my wife graduates from dental school 330k in the hole while dentists who are in their 60s now or later graduated owing 5-10k. Very big difference since schools are just a business now. Can't wait to have our fun once she is done paying it back.

    I think she mentioned the incoming class of 2021 (when she graduated in 2017) were going to owe 100k more over the course of their degree at University of Washington. Just insane.

    Holy loans Kyle! That is crazy.

    Let's be honest though, can Mark and Bruce really say that they are "working"? Lol. I got nothing but love, you did your time and now you can do something you enjoy vs. punching the clock for "the man". I hope to be there myself one day.

    I enjoy my job and the commute isn't too bad, 20 miles door to door. Lease in the main building on our campus is up in 2022 and we know they aren't renewing it. But the building I am in is owned by the company as-is the land so hoping that might mean we will stay where we are.

    Sorry to hear about the car Chris. #that racecar life

    Weíre screwed if I get such an injury. We sold the CX9 and Iíve been bouncing between the Jeep, the REPU, and the Rx7. We donít have an auto in the fleet anymore.

    the auto we have in our house is my wifes rav4, but she doesnt want to drive manual so luckily my dad was willing to trade with me. I grew up in a manual family and my dad only has an auto because he has to drive a ton for work. My mom just got herself a 2016 accord in 6spd. She refuses to give it up and told me I'd be disowned if I bought an auto daily.

    Another hill climb for the REPU. Went to the top of Burke Mountain this weekend while I was at a mountain bike festival. Passed some riders on the way up. Got thumbs up on the way back down.







    That last shot is the wedding pavilion about half way up the mountain.
