Blowing the Carbon Out

Long overdue test drive tonight.

Against us:
*Fix-A-Flat is holding up the rear tires.
*Brake fluid is mostly water.
*Brake booster is shot.
*Seatbelts can't even restrain themselves.
*Starter seems to be on the blink again. She cranked a few times, but after that, much like your mother, she wouldn't turn over without a push.

For us:
*Headlights work.
*Car is fast as shit.

Also, the high idle seems to have smoothed itself out. Apart from the slight temperament, this could be a daily driver.

Results below.

I didn't see and Foci around to aim the Mustag toward.

@mike

The braking has deteriorated from lousy to "hand-brake only," and that could go at any time. We tried not to aim it at anything more explosive than a curb.

I'm really hating that Cricket.

Your car is now guaranteed to be at least the 2nd slowest thing to touch that track.
