Well crap... seems I waited about 4 hours too late to register...

I'm told it shouldn't be an issue... so count me in!

I live just south of Cincinnati. Scott and Tony have been in a couple rallies down here we have put on, "The Rooster Challenge" etc.

Looking forward to this, just with it wasn't still so damn long off.

There is definitely truth in it. I always beat the crap out of mine day-in and day-out. Went 130,000 miles with no problems at all. I went to the track the weekend before the rally a couple years ago and broke stuff. I ended up having to take the truck to that one. I slapped the new transmission in it, got it tuned and babied it till rally time this year and everything was good.

2010 - beat the snot out of my car up until the trip. 3 days before I left the left CV Axle exploded. had one overnighted to put in the next day. Got it, installed it, went to lower the car and noticed a puddle of oil. Ended up cracking the oil pan in the process, jacked it back up pulled the pan and had it welded. Left the next day, woke up the morning of the rally and there was fluid under the car. The C clip holding the axle shaft into the trans was gone, limped it to a Honda dealer and got a C clip and patched it together at the local Home Depot.

2011- Did a 6 speed swap over the winter, money was low so I cut it real close on time. Also did all new pads & rotors before the trip. Got to the Mass border and right front wheel locked up. Pulled over, upper caliper bolt worked its way out and the caliper fell forward and locked itself on the wheel. Took a German lug-stud (had the same thread pitch and length as the caliper bolt) from the right rear and put it back on. Rocked it 3 lug style on the RR for the rest of the trip.

2012 - Built a new (old) car for RD, after driving it and repairing it daily for a month prior to the rally I took it anyways. To put it simply, blew a LR brake line, LR caliper seized (just took it off and plugged the line), alt. died, battery died with it, trans got locked in 3rd for a couple hours.

Oh, and no A/C in either of those cars. Black leather. mmmmm.

Or maybe I have s***ty cars and bad luck.

Ok, decision made.

Changing to a 2008 Audi S6 V10 for the rally. The Audi is too comfortable to not use, shite the Z doesn't even have a cup holder. LOL.

It is peppy, I love it. V10 sounds like animal sex. Doing RS6 grill install next week. Coated the wheels Dark gray last week. Might lower it, but it rides so good i'm tempted to leave it alone.
