Petro stop...corner of parker and quincy...93.5 octane, it's the last pump by where the motorhomes have to go.  it's usually the same price as premium too.


I'm filling up there from now on.

32 cars so far!!! This is going to be sweet! Tried replacing my TREs this past weekend and they were a no-go. Rusted on there good. Hopefully I can get them replaced and get an alignment before Friday or else it'll be an expensive day watching.

Hey Andrew, I had the same problem.  I ended up using two vise-grips to start them going.  It was tough, but ended up working for me.

Win,  I was helping him and he has a solid bead of rust the incircles the thread.  We both tried and could not budge it.  Outside of grinding away the rust, I cannot think of what else to do that would not cause damage to the any of the affected parts.  Speaking for myself, I was bummed!
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

I have an appointment tomorrow morning with McDonald VW to fix my TREs. They'll try removing just the TREs by any means necessary. If they won't come off, they'll replace the entire tie rod assembly to the tune of $600!

 8O   Oh my God!  I really hope it does not come to that.  I still think if the bead of rust can be ground down, they may be able to be taken off.

I think Chas posted something somewhere on this, but he didn't get it into this forum.  Let me look for it...

Nope, I couldn't find anything on it, so Hopefully Chas will post something to get it going.  The plan is for a BBQ at his place after the track.

I know you guys mentioned that you ordered pizza for lunch, but I was thinking of bringing my little charcoal grill to the track. Would they allow it? What do you guys think?

I'll go in on Pizza and sodas, I'm bringing enough stuff with me (canopy, chairs, tools, etc.) that I don't want to have to worry about food.

One more thing:

For all you Northwest-side-of-town folks - My friend Jim and I are going to meet up to drive to the track together.  Join us if you want to all drive over together.

we are meeting at the Starbucks at 80th and Wadsworth between 7:15 and 7:30 then will depart for 2nd creek.

I need that caffine fix before I drive.

I'll probably pick up one of those "traveler" buckets of coffee to take care of you other caffine adicts at the track.

I'll skip the tolulene in the coffee, messes with my carbuerator.   :lol:

Yes, Elmo is still in the car.  He now resides on the back of one of the front headrests as our daughter is old enough to be facing forward now.  Anyway,  I was going to take him out along with the car seat, but may leave him in just for fun.

I think the Toluene boosted coffee will be an emissions hazard too. - LOL

I think all of us parents should keep our child seats in our cars when we go to the track Friday.  We can each have a different animal in the back as out co-pilots.

I don't know, I think it would damage the Intake as bad as it would the Exhaust.

Weather forecast predicts scattered showers on Friday, so be prepared for that.  Hopefully it won't rain as heavy as it is right now.
