Is the phrase "heating up" just too corny to use on this site?

So much time so little to do! Scratch that! Reverse it! Final touches coming together, the front spindles are off to Fast Tire of Antioch IL to get our new wheel bearings pressed in because we're not taking any chances and they don't count towards our budget (safety rules). Tomorrow plans on getting the wheels all on, as well as the super sekrit underbody Aero and hood scoop. Blown diffuser anyone? Our new sets of EBC brakes will be here on Thursday, more info on that coming soon you can be sure. Oh yea and the decals! And gap the spark plugs, thin the trans fluid, finalize remote BBQ radio temperature transmitter...this list just keeps getting longer!
Friend of the team Simon (Team Failcar Captain) just finished third racing with Robin Banks in a $500 SAAB 9-3 at Virginia International Raceway this weekend. And 6th place in a SAAB 9-5. However that worked...Congrats!!
Oh yea, happy birthday fellow Chicagoland SAABer Will Ski!
