    THIS was supposed to be my last year at MOTD, so it will have to be next year, instead. After that, I'll be wayyyy too old to enjoy much of anything, including cigars...LOL

    Woo! I got Rufus back last Wednesday but the clutch pedal felt weird. It wasn't as springy as before... almost felt like it was 2 stages. I was bleeding the brakes on Saturday morning and thought "Hmmm... I wonder what the clutch slave looks like?" Yep... it was dripping fluid! Luckily, I had a spare slave in the boot, so I got it mounted up, popped it on and blead. Woo! Clutch feels fantastic! I'm still getting used to a slightly higher engagement point, but I'm ready to go!

    When you get back, I'll send you the info on the big British Car Meet in Dayton this August, if you want to go, that is.

    I just got home. The alignment was great. I haven't even looked at the receipt but they only charged me for an alignment and a couple of shop hours. OK-they're safe...:) :)

    Well, I had just a wonderful time down at the Dragon. Got to see some of you, but missed most of you. Had to pick up my son from college. (Yes, I was the only parent to pick up his child in a MINI! Lol)

    Glad you made it down safely. Here, it is nothing buy rain, rain, and more rain thru Sunday. Hopefully, I'll be back next year, if I don't wash away first!

    Actually, that was one of my problems, i made 36 Dragon Runs and wore out my tires....I was worried about driving home in the rain. But gosh the R50 was “freaky fast”! 5200EB4F-0E29-4484-BBE2-7F48AEB8B3A4.jpeg
