    Life became much better for me once I found my ex stock car racer/mechanic.... We get along well and I spend lots of time at his shop. His whole family has become my track support team.

    Now we have two races in October, then the final 3 hour race in Nov. that one has me worried. Three sets of 45 min with a 15min fuel and driver change break. At least the tranny cooler is in.....

    Family is always a "God's Send" that you should cherish! Best of luck on your upcoming races...that 3 hr deal sounds like a real challenge for sure.

    And now you have a working spare? I think you'll be ready for the enduro either way.

    Well the second tranny is out and apart.... but have to order the syncros etc before we put it together again.... Its a pain being at the end of the world.... Ford in Chile does not even have the most basic parts in stock.....things like spark plugs!!!! They have to be special ordered from Miami,,,at twice the price I get by ordering myself!!!
