Scott, let me know when you get a itch for the ridge. I'm game for next week, but I'm still running this weekend. After last week's drive in the crossfire, I'd bet I'd keep up with you down mt Baldy. I want to go out this weekend to test the 32 fix.

412driver, Were all close by and I'm not into taking photo's when I'm figuring out car problems nor deep into the ridge. But here's some photos of the ridge (first photo, hairpin) we took last December.

I would love to unleash my SLK's potential over there; To think of it it might be America's Nurburgring.

Mohammed, speaking of places to race, do you know what this place is. Itís huge. The outer ring is ~6.2 miles long. It appears to be concrete pavement and 120 feet wide.

Ya Gene, I was up there and had a good run. But as always. It's better when chasing after or getting away from another car. The place was empty. The steering has improved

Maybe V8SLK, cyberdraken, or another will set up a date for a meet. It's my turn to take it easy.
