I agree with everything Sparky said here. I just wanted to add a call out to
to the event. Mr galt is everything I expected.
I really enjoyed getting to put a face to all the names.
When I first joined the org, if someone would have told me I would be going to an event with a bunch of guys I met on the internet I would have called them nuts. Now I can say I made some new lifelong friends
as to the ford blue part...
SO much truth there.
i NEVER would have thought i would be off across the country to meet up with folks from the internet
but you guys are not most people
most people kinda suck...
org people are very much a cut above
and for that i am forever grateful
i second most of that
but the highlighted "indigo" part...
i am afraid to ask what you mean by that
probably better off NOT knowing
you kinda ducked out before i got to say good bye
unless i was drunk and just dont remember
One way to knock down some of the high-end stuff is to Simply make running a single-engine mandatory unless you physically blow the other one up Beyond reasonable repair. The other thing is get rid of the rolling dynos put in a real water break, and make the challenge the maximum horsepower you can sustain for 5 minutes straight. That gets rid of all the BS of microseconds at Peak horsepower and ridiculously astronomical numbers. The whole idea of a diesel was how much it could pull up a hill not how much power it could make for 1.0 milliseconds
yea this might be a start to a more real world style of event
or at least have the option of
ridiculous impossible high hp rollers
a more realistic and down to earth style of dyno.
it would really cut down on the number of princess trucks blowing upp on the track too due to unrealistic build styles
in other news....
the idiot who was coughing all over the place on the first part of my flight out of reno.
apparently passed it along because i woke up monday morning so sick i couldn't even see.
then the shuttle took a half an hour longer than advertised so i missed my 5 am flight through phoenix and wound up on a 6 am flight through denver.
it worked out well though as i arrived in reno at the same time
but i am still sick as a dog right now and my wife had to take my sons friend back to reno because no one would get in a car with me
probably for the best...
this is one gift i would rather keep to myself
ok going to drag my self through the shower and try to regain some humanity
talk to you fine folks shortly
i forget her name, but when woke up and went down stairs, the girl at the desk was SO relieved to hear that you had already gone home with all of your phone apps
also...i dont remember you leaving did i pass out or was i just getting too sick to know what was going on?
