Aug 2-3 2013: Prepping for the show, and showing off the prep

Friday August 2nd 2013.

I drove to the local Speedway station to top up the tank with CAM 100, and found both the brakes  and the shifting to be better.

Cleaning, packing, and polishing, while it rains….

Saturday August 3: our FIRST show since all of the upgrades,and it is sunny!

Started at McDonalds, where we met the Mayers: Ed, Nathan, Jody, and Gen.


We cruised across town at 60-65 mph – no issues!

As I arrived, I was directed to the parking area for both Classic Mini’s, and BMW MINI’s, and as I pulled into the spot, smoke began coming up from under the car.  OMG, what is wrong?  Hot components on wet grass yield water vapor…

At the Show:
