I make the Brake calipers for the Panoz Racing school cars and occasionally I get to go over and run the course. Well one time I was able to take my wife and she ran a few laps and had a blast. The worst part was now I have to spend money on suspension and braking so she can do club events in her BMW Touring. Now she wants more power!!! I did the SCCA thing for years and she wasn't interested now when I want to play with boats she wants to play with the cars. When I was going to the tracks I was not able to really get her involved so I figured that with the boats we could enjoy them together but her idea of a good time on a boat is a pontoon. She hates the Pachanga but she has really started to like the Fountain. Life is good!!

Nice brakes dude! Damn coming down the back straight away and then hard on the brakes before the bridge - I was thinking I hope this puppy has some good shoes! I have a WCC that I am preparing for the historic series - let's hook up sometime - Brian

Brian,

Let me know when you are ready. I believe you may know one of the machine shops that is doing some of my work. Do you know Tim Milwood? Or would you rather not say
