then it shall be sunny of this I am sure...(In Arizona) I hope it clears up. I really want to vindicate myself from the smashing Ron "Yes I am still building my F5J models" Turner gave us last session... Launch low go high worked for him nearly every throw. And here I thought we were friends...

Seriously nice job Ron

Well - Weather is not cooperating so far -

I got the numbers back from the mechanic - looks like I will be close to the budget I set aside to replace the truck which was 10K for a interim vehicle for a few years until I decide what i want. They indeed had to swap motors and that meant while the other motor was out doing all the things that could catch me later like oil cooler seals, timing chain, EGR delete...so hopefully when I am done I will have the perfect F3X vehicle - seats 7 , enough power to tow a small trailer and AWD for snowboarding with a 3 liter diesel

So now its going to be an adventure but I really hope the 320 R holds up because its got enough room to put a whole FAI team in it and can sleep 3 !

much improvement for Sundays weather but bring ballast as the wind forecast is for the Airport area but our field gets easily 5-10 K more so I expect 28-30 KMH but nothing so sustained that it would deter Canadians...
