Another LeMons update

We worked on the car a few more days over the break.  The motor was completed, the tranny attached, and the whole assembly dropped back in the car.  It took some doing to get it fitted correctly, but it's in and sitting pretty.  Dave did the wiring and it's all operational.  Yesterday we even took turns taking it for a spin in Rob's neighborhood.  The timing might be a little off, but we got boost from the supercharger and it steered and made cool noises, so we're ready for the SJR autocross this Saturday!

Looks like I'll use the Ex to tow the car down to SC and Rob and Lori will carry most of the tools in his truck while I can take left overs and maybe Mike and Dave.  I'm still planning on sleeping in the truck, but I'll keep a close eye on the weather to see if I'll need a room for a night (a shower might be nice at some point...).

Next up, the autocross on Saturday at NJMP.  If the weather holds, I'll be taking Kieran's old kart so he can drive, too.
