Where you starting and ending? Pretty sure I could do that from SJ to Fresno and still drive around for a day or so on a tank.

I wonder if it would be worth it to fab up a composite tank??? I found the right resin for the job and think using basalt as the material filler. Wouldn't have to worry about E-85 eating it up.

Note on the 'Plmbley' wing; removing the 3rd brakelight looks awesome! Really my favorite thing about it.

Pics would be nice, I know, but just a note here.
Silver MR2
I've installed my GC/Koni struts with TTT camber plates. Matrix Garage rear tie rods and TTT front strut rods, urethane bushings throughout.
Steering rack was rebuilt with Quaife quick steer rack. I'll be taking it for an alignment later this week.
I did a "Plumbly" mod on the rear wing. I'm in the process of putting LEDs in the rear visor to act as a third brake light. I have an "Extreme Dimensions" front bumper cover for future installation.
Engine is going to be a 7AGE, currently in the shop for balancing and boring. More details later.

Parkfield grade. Looks interesting! Any idea of the road surface condition?

Chit Chat / NO ONIONS!!!
February 29, 2016, 08:39:19 PM
How hard can it be? It's not like calculating the velocity of an asteroid hurtling through space towards earth and we need to know how long we have to live, it's putting six, no wait, five, duh, no onions, together. Thing that really sets this one particular incident aside from others is that the guy that took my order told the guy building the burger " no onions" four times that I heard, WHILE THE BURGER WAS BEING PUT TOGETHER. Not like there was  a big rush on, only two burgers were ordered. Both were on my order. Minimum I.Q. requirement for the job, 12.
Chit Chat / More CA SMOG program complaints
January 07, 2016, 01:52:16 PM
So, more problems with the smog program/inspectors/stations. As anyone that knows me knows, the SMOG program is my windmill. Welcome to one of my Quixotic episodes.
Why do we have to have so many levels of test station? Test and tune, STAR and of course the test only station. The DMV selects the station you go to.
"Gross polluter"! What the heck is this? The vehicle fails, BADLY, and now, after you repair the car and test it again, it passes! But now you have to test the vehicle EVERY year until the BAR deems it can be test biannually again.
Stations are turning cars away if they are too old (??? If the car is too old it's flipping EXEMPT!). Too modified? Talking suspension mods, absolutely NO relation to the emissions equipment. One from last time I had to smog one of my MR2s, too low. Really? The suspension was stock, in every respect. Also got that one on my FX16, which is lower than stock, but my Mazdaspeed3 is actually lower in stock form. WHY??
Ignorant inspectors. The guy that bought my FX16 took it down to several smog stations. Most turned him away on the aforementioned reasons. When he got one to test the car it failed. Failed for "missing equipment". The equipment in question is the A/C idle up solenoid. The car has NO A/C equipment, from the factory, NONE! But the vacuum ports are capped, from the factory. Now, on the vacuum diagram there is no reference to these ports or the alleged missing equipment. The car was failed for this? Everything else was in place and the car passed the sniffer clean. Again, WHY?
Next time I get turned away with the reason being 'it's too old' I'm going straight to the BAR and requesting them exempt my car.
They need to do something about this stupid program. I'm not against having our cars run clean, just the way they go about it. Poor conception, poorly managed. Shouldn't have to stress on something like this every two years. The "gross polluter" needs to be abolished.
Other states are closing their smog programs for vehicles. California is making the states program stricter.  Stricter on older cars, more lenient on newer cars. Someone needs to pull their head out.

Trips / Re: What roads have you driven, or want to drive?

If you get a chance to go to Hawai'i there are a few roads that are fun. Maui has a few, but the most famous is the "Road to Hana". I've had the pleasure to drive this road without traffic and it's a blast! If the traffic isn't bad it can be a lot of fun there too. On the big island highway 11, Volcano highway, is tons of fun! Just don't get caught speeding.

Highway 41, Kettleman to Stratford, Night and HOT! 4 1/2 hours. Construction.
Figure  fast times need a counter, so here's a slow time.
