Nebraska/Iowa guys, check out starcityracing.com, its Lincoln forum. As far as I know, im the only 8 on the forum. Come join, it would be great to have a couple more 8s. Make sure you make a noob post first, hazing will ensue at first.

So is mine. Probably not out for another month or so. Working on a few things to get it ready. But if you guys ever get together and want to include other rotaries let me know. I know of a few others who might join you.

Sweepers will be out in force this coming week around Bellevue. Then we need one good "gully washer" thunderstorm to clean up the rest. I'm most concerned about catching rocks in the windshield and beating up the front end.

Yesterday must have been a nice evening for a drive in Omaha, I saw three other 8's cruising on Dodge.

One of you with some power need to show up that guy in the pretty red RSX with carbon fiber fenders, he spanked me at a light the other day :D
