We may have to pass, depends on a few factors...

Becky starts a new job Wednesday at Aviva so we're adjusting to that and having to take Quinn to daycare so I'm not quite sure what time we'll be all situated.

Scott, I finished the cooling panel today and got DGR's logo on it. It came out a little bumpy but not bad for an hours work.

Looks good Rob! Nice work!

In other news. Everyone plan on another great race weekend.

June 11 is the second NQS series autocross at the Marshaltown track. We really need to Subie represent!

June 12 is the second in the Iowa challenge series with DMVR hosting at the Iowa Speedway..... infield this year. Last weekend at Osky we (DMVR) scored 93 points for the challenge, vs. 70 something for the Iowa region.

I really wanted to do the Iowa Speedway one, but I'll be out of town

I'm going to make the June 11th date, though. I'm pretty excited for it, even if it rains again.

I might be able to do a morning run before lunch at the Iowa Speedway, but that's a lot of racing in a weekend before making two road trips in a few days. I'll get my fix at Marshalltown.

I've been on the speedway infield before, and it's awesome. They ran about 1/2 to 3/4 of the oval before entering the infield last time I was there for the club racing event, and some of the cars were flying.

Question for you car audio people:

I'm looking for a cheap $100-$200 single din head unit to replace the super crappy one in my car. I used to be able to pick something out fairly easily on Crutchfield, but now it seems like it is five pages of units that all have the same specs. Any recommendations on brands or things to look for?

Looks good Rob. I need to get my carbon stuff out and make some goodies. I have a roll of plain weave carbon fiber and a roll of red/black carbon/kevlar.

I didn't have much contact with her. It was her dad that bought the car and did the negotiating. He does know I'm part of the club though. It may not hurt to throw a card on the car if you see it sitting somewhere though. It would be nice to see the old car again.

I have the Alpine CDA-105 in my 02 and I love it. Single CD with Ipod controls, comes with bottom space pocket and wiring harness.
Its on sale at Crutchfield with free shipping.
