Eric finished his examination of the engine. Actually he tracked down an RX7 person to confirm it and officially the engine is fried. Which is something I think we all knew but It's good to hear for real from an official type decision maker. Basically it would be cheaper to buy a new engine than to replace all the parts that need replacing.
So, now with the dreary economy and much of the team living a freelance lifestyle we're taking a little longer to regroup than originally planned. It's too late for Reno but Buttonwillow is still looking feasible. I've kind of been working on the car but not quite in the right direction to keep it running. Then again, I've got to get it out of my garage one way or another.
