We have been working over the transmissions to make them more reliable and we think we have made some progress. So we are going to the next event at Joliet, Il with high hopes. Although WC has never raced there, we are of the mind set "it's our kind of track". Lots of twists and turns and no long straights to let them V 8's and V 10's and now a supercharged McLaren Mercedes 722GT, blow by.<br>We will be trying to put the Volvo's back up front!<br>SCCA has restricted the mustang intake another 10%, not a lot but it shows they are paying attention to his awesome straight line speed.<br>You can follow on line on the WC web site. <A HREF="http://www.world-challenge.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.world-challenge.com</A> <br>I'll let you all know how it comes out.

It's good to know you guys are noticing the Volvo community. We're all rooting for you to do well, and show the capabilities of the S60. I think it's awesome that you guys are doing really well against cars such as the GT3 and the C6 Vette. <p>If you wouldn't mind, could you give me a little more details about the motor? I thought you were running a Garrett 35R, correct?

Re: K Pax gets ready for race 6, Autobahn (joshil71)

Chicago / Autobahn, Winning is always fun and makes a great race event.<br>We still have trans issues <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> and spend enormous amounts of time at the track working on them. However with SCCA's new combining of GT and TC practice it gives us a chance to actually work on our car in other area's. We lead the practice session but didn't pull off a front row of Volvo's, so we started 2nd and 4th. Our standing starts are either awesome or we suck, Randy managed a reasonable start, Andy's was a dud. Andy had a real workout. 4th to 9th on the start, then a hard charging spin to 16th, then a climb to finish 4th.<br>We had Davis, the current points leader covered all weekend, until a major double file restart wreck- fest, managed to get him in front of Andy, so we lost some points to the leader and remain in the 3rd slot, Randy got max points and has move to 5th, since his zero points DNS at Sebring. Sofronas's Porsche is under a possible DQ for illegal bodywork, if it is upheld, Andy could move to 2nd and Randy to 4th. SCCA is reviewing the measurements, he may just get a slap and have to fix it by the next event.<br>So we are at home base and have 5 days to ready the cars for a back to back part of the season, Mid-Ohio then R/Amer. We will become the fastest AWD trans R and R and rebuild team in history, a title I wish we didn't have to earn. We have also moved Volvo into 3rd in the manufacture championship, 4 points out of 2nd and 11 points from the lead.

Re: K Pax gets ready for race 6, Autobahn (Bob Raub)

its was an awesome race to watch, Randy took a big lead till the full course yellow. Before the race i got to talk to Randy and he said that he was worried about the AWD and that it would.nt keep up. I'd say it did more than keep up.
