no, the tractor just wouldn't start. once it's going it'd be fine (longest commute EVER at ~8mph). Been driving the v8. Deferred maintenance on the fleet is rapidly catching up with me lol.

I would be down to come. 8-9 hour drive isn't that bad to see a bunch of Volvos at the drag strip and on the dyno. Hopefully I will be able to bring a brick if not then probably my C70 or XC70. If I bring my XC I'll put it on the dyno if it's an AWD dyno. I have a couple of things I'm doing to it, gonna try to see if I can match a stock STI in power on the dyno.

Front or rear? The ones on my '79 are in 6-7/10 condition. I have really nice condition set to put on, and no use for the okayish set once I remove them.
