Audi Stars and Cars Event

The other night was the Audi Stars and Cars event at Strong Audi here in Salt Lake. They had the new Audi R10 TDI Le Mans racecar there with two of the drivers that won the actual 24 Hours of Le Mans race this past month. My dad and I went to it and it was pretty amazing to see that car up close and personal. It sure is a technological marvel! I won a book signed by Emanuele Pirro and Frank Biela as well as got two free tickets to the practice sessions on Thursday night. It was awesome to hear that car in person. Here's a link to a video of the R10 at the Grand Prix of Utah

and here are some pictures.

Landy Update

The other night since Gina has been in Chicago, I came down to my dad's to work some more on the Landy (1994 Land Rover Defender 90). I got the transmission off and the clutch replaced and surprisingly it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It is nice to have it out of the way though. I also got the shock towers modified enough to fit the external reservoir shocks that I got. Here's some pics of what I did. I just have to put the transmission back on and then focus on the fuel and electrical lines, eek! I can't wait until I get this thing done though, it's about time!
