The team worked on getting some fine tuning done to the racer yesterday (Monday).  We has a minor leak on the oil pan gasket, so we spent some time repairing that.  We also decided we wanted to try and squeeze out a little more steering, but unfortunately we stripped a thread on the ram assist.  Good news is that Bill will be flying in from Dallas today and was able to pick up a new part for us there.  I got the camera all working with Picture-in-a-Picture, so we should have good video from two different views this year.  I'll mount it all in the racer today and see how it looks.  We will pick up our GPS tracking device from IRC today and get it mounted.  Will pick up course GPS files tomorrow, and attend the BFGoodrich Pit meeting.  BFG is kind enough to sponsor us by providing free pit services/re-fueling along the course.  This is their 3rd year to sponsor us, and we really appreciate it! I was the first to experience "Montezuma's revenge" this year, but it seems to have been short lived.  Good to get it over with early!

3 days and a wake up! 

Bye from Baja!   Scott
