    But unless a miracle happens in the next 4 weeks, looks like I'm bringing the Daytona this year. I just don't think I have enough time to finish the Scamp...

    That's too bad, i was looking forward to checking out your upgrade.
    But i know how it goes.
    I'm stressing too, knowing I'm not going to get through my to-do list.

    Sorry to hear that, but happy you're still planning on going.
    I don't feel that finishing a project like that in a thrash to get to an impending event is ever a good idea anyway. Invariably, you end up making compromises that you end up regretting.

    Yeah, kind of what I'm thinking as well. The Scamp will be a riot once finished, but I certainly don't want to half-@ss something and wind up stranded on the side of the road. Good news is, SDAC is only about 3 hours from my place this year...
    The Daytona is definitely a great alternative. It is more comfortable on a long drive than the Scamp, and if it's hot, it does have A/C...

    It's way too far so I'm waiting for it to be held closer. Like many of the SDACers I have a 4.16hr travel radius maximum before complaining ensues.

    Yeah, a 29 hour road trip would be a little much, even for me....

    Finish up the boost controller install on the race car, get the SD-card data logger working, shift light, get some road tuning miles on it, window bushings, replace a door handle, install new 5-point harness.

    What's everybody else got left to do?
    Lots of clean up and other odds and ends. It's more like, what don't I have to do?

    Dusty Duster was kicking around the idea of driving out to the event a couple of years ago. He lived in the host city...
