Topic: The Dangerously Not Ready For Reno Report
Just wondering how well other teams prepare for their races. We have a bad habit of putting everything off to the last minute and then rushing like mad to get it together in time. For the Houston race last year, we didn't even know where we would get our rollcage until a week before the race. And we didn't book our RV until the day before. Now, with two weeks to Reno, we've got our engine apart in the middle of an open heart forced induction upgrade.
The junk yard turbo is totally untested. Cooling and oil lines are not connected. And we've only just worked out how to connect everything together. Miles of exhaust plumbing needs to be welded and mounted. Crucial engine management bits have been yanked from the car with little regard for their function. More detail about our ambitious plans and their complete state of undoneness here: http://www.peasantracing.com/car.asp
Someone make us feel better about being total slackers.
