Laissez les Crapheaps Roulez 2010 Entry Essay

We're hooligans... hooligans with jobs.

That's how we afford this ridiculous sport.

Unfortunately, we don't have good jobs, or we'd race something sexier. Like a Lancia or a Tata. So instead, we're racing the same piece of crap Neon we've always raced... poorly. We hope to kick ass, take names and hopefully run away fast enough that our asses don't get pulverized.

And oh yeah, the whole 'true 24' thing? WE CAN'T F'ING WAIT!!! I'm so excited I can't even speak. In an ideal world, drag racing and Lemons will occur SIMULTANEOUSLY! And then the world will end. And I will be content.

That is all.


So, no pics, but regardless, it's time for an update!

We're coming down to the wire, people. The next MSR race is Sept 11th and 12th... and the car is still sitting on blocks. Why, you ask? We're having the hubs redone. Nothing is broken, per se, but an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

Oh, and that clutch cable? Well, apparently self adjusting Neon clutch cables are notoriously finicky. And a total PITA to replace. So yeah, we discovered how annoying they are... personally. Grr! Thankfully, the repair (eventually) succeeded.

Now I'm off to panic some more about how little time is left and how much needs doing... EEK!
