    Yes, if they really want to show us stuff to take business away from them, well that's up to them. :)

    I'll give them a list and in the end they can do what they want.

    Here's the list so far...

    1) What and how to check on your own between oil changes.

    2) How to change the oil.

    3) Getting ready for the track and what to watch at the track.

    4) Description of power train flow from gas/air all the way through to rear wheels.

    5) Description of turbo systems.

    6) History and evolution of Ferrari engines.

    What else?

    Here is a request..probably simple for a lot of people but how about bleeding the radiaters in a TR when you add water. I have never done it but have heard its a common issue that owner don't do correctly. This goes in the catagory of things the owners should check in between services.

    Due to last weekends rain, my kids soccer games were cancelled. Anybody want to guess when they've been rescheduled? 10 and 10:30 am on Saturday. I guess I won't be making this event, but if you're all going for lunch afterwards I could probably make that?

    It was a great event. Thanks to James, Ken, Mike, and special guest Harold Pace. James' wife prepared an awesome breakfeast for us with breakfeast burritos, muffins, and fruit.

    Harold Pace is an automotive historian and writer. He's been published in several magazines and has written the 308 rebuild articles for Norwoods in Forza and an upcoming aritcle in Forza on the TR tubro systems.

    Harold took us through the history of Ferrari with a focus on how the various engines developed over the years.

    James then talked through his experience over the years with the Ferraris. Great information like he's only had 3 Ferraris ever come in with a broken belt. He said all of those had more than 10 years on the belts too. Basically, they will stretch and might get a couple teeth off on the timing before they'll break.

    We then gathered around a 328 that they're doing a major on and showed various things like how he adjusts the valves.
