More debriefing

So I left out some good parts from the TnT.  I mentioned the help that Danny Kao gave me trying to start the kart, etc.  What I didn't really talk about was that he let me drive his kart quite a bit during the morning and first PM session.  So I did get some seat time in his kart and I had a blast!  As I write this my body is pretty much in agony in lots of places.  I'm stiff and sore and I would swear that a good portion of my arms should be black and blue.  But I don't care - it was a huge amount of fun and I can't wait to get a running motor on my kart again so I can drive one that fits me (Danny is at least 6 inches taller than I so I was stretching for the brakes and the clutch handle was quite a reach).

Started looking for a new engine today and one popped up: a 1995 CR125.  Price is a bit high for the age and non-pedigree, but it is tempting.  There's another one closer and the guy is willing to help me rebuild the TM, so I'm waiting to hear from him to see what I can get and when.  Next step is to remove the TM from the kart and crack it open to see what awaits me in there...
