I drove 14 hours with no brakes there. Left with brakes but lowered. The wagon didn't like the extra weight and the NVH sucked on the way home.

That blue 242 Turbo was not mine- but it looks like mine.
Nice to see old friends- thanks to Kenny and Sam, Wren for cooking(Love the tots!)

Had a good trip home and my car dies in the driveway as I pull in- dead MS2.

Yeah- I have an MS3 with harness. That Holley looks like a great deal.
Good to see you again- you have a nice family.

Not sure on feats of strength, there was a contingent of folks mixing dried ghost and reaper peppers with various alcohols. I have a sneaking suspicion this ultimately contributed heavily to matt's untimely demise adjacent the bonfire.

Other noteworthy casualties:
R's a/c appears to have flaked again. betting an o-ring is leaking up front (dammit). it took a couple cans about a month ago, this is not a habit I'm going to tolerate. This is unrelated to the weekend I imagine
Blue 242 apparently blew a caliper out on the front. guess life cannot continue without wheel spacers. I was so looking forward to it being returned to it's owner sooner rather than later.

We did make some progress on Mo's car, still not really happy with the product but after adjusting the cams we got it to do various cool things, and the final power numbers at 12psi were around 250whp and tq. Timing is still... very low, and looking at the knock sensor data cylinder number 2 gets loud much earlier than the others despite it having approximately 2 degrees of timing pulled out. The graph looks fairly normal now, however, so progress was made, just not as much as would have been appreciated.

Have some theories, sent him home with a set of car cams, have had good results from those before, so we may explore that. Stopped short of putting some e85 in the tank to see if it's just an octane limitation or something more sinister like valve seal

As always, I had a big time at SE. I enjoyed taking rides in Sam's red wagon and Kyle's 120 with the 5-cylinder whiteblock as well as just talking cars for the weekend.

Thanks Kenny for opening up your house and shop to everyone and thanks to Honda Matt for kitchen duties. The pork butt was especially good this year, no doubt made better by Brandon's contribution of some unique KC BBQ sauce.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at Mountain Meat in September.

Thanks Kenny for having us. Great fun was had by all. Thanks Sam for the awesome storytelling. I'm going to go ahead and extend my thanks from Brandon (VW guy) who came with. He can't stop talking about Sam's wagon, Grayson's RS3 or Mike Sr's 242. I had a blast, tell Matt to heed people's warnings about chocolate and finish off the rest of that bottle of Gris Gris.

Indeed. I think the secret ingredient that gives it that earthy flavor is smoked paprika. At any rate, it was damned tasty.

I begrudgingly admit that was some of the better sauce I've had.
