    Got a lil more seat time. Absolutely lovin it. Got back to my high altitude hometown of 5500' today. I can feel the difference in power from Cali. Bummer, but a fact of life. Im dying to get some vbox data. I CANNOT believe I accidentally left it here and didn't pack it to Cali to get some times there. I wish we had a formula so we could do "corrected" times. I know a minimum 10-12% power loss at this altitude.

    Anyhow, heres some pics from a photoshoot we did in Cali. Christian Fernandez Photograhy A friend... Great 20 yr. old kid in photography school. Needed some practice. It was fun and he's a good kid. Anyone in South Cali who wants a shoot, get with him. He needs the practice and cars to shoot for school projects.

    I got in the GB, its paid and on order. It is so sexy. But Im having second thoughts-strictly for financial reasons. quote from wife "when does the madness stop?"

    Sitting in hotel in Newport Beach. Can't sleep. Too excited. I don't have much of a report, as I have only driven it about 1 mile, around a block a few times. Hard to explain, but juggling truck/trailer, getting to hotel, marriage anniversary this weekend also, etc. Trying to cram lots of things into 2 days.

    A very short, quick write up of my 1st impressions:

    WOW!
    *Man, I forgot how sexy my car is It was detailed before i got here, and they did an insane job with paint correction and whole 9 yards, etc. etc. Any SO-Cal residents HAVE to use them at least annually. A separate write-up on just the detail will be posted soon. Sikklightning/Jimmy/JC did it (can't remember their company name), but they did an INSANE job!!!
    *SPE: Don't really know what to say. A true performance shop. Can't even put in words how pleased I am with the outcome. But I think their Rep precedes them and I don't need to elaborate on how good, professional, and experienced they are.
    *3 launches, but only 1 launch with correct LC1. 1st two launches were accidentally on Cobb 3300 RPM. In error, Cobb AP re-loaded the 3300 RPM I had in there last when SP did a final update. So re-loaded LC1 yesterday, now Im all set)
    *LC1: Wow, intense, awesome, fun, slingshot.... what else? Big difference from launching 3300, obviously
    *Suprisingly one of my first thoughts: "Oh yeah, I could easily handle 1100-1200 whp-no problem! " (don't mis-interpret-Its incredibly fast and plenty fast)
    *LA traffic sucks-especially when driving a trailer and signs dont warn where exits are coming up all the time
    *Just can't wait for more seat time. Im taking it out to Cars and Coffee Irving in a couple of hours. WIll put the wifey in for the first time. I'll get her to scream. This will really be the first time for me to sit back, relax, and really observe/enjoy it.

    I am so pissed at myself. I should be out on roads right now this early AM doing P-Box runs. But somehow it didn't make it here with all my other junk. Im so pissed cause I live in hi-altitude, so this is about my only chance to get some good data. Eugene found me one to borrow, but I have to drive another 40 minutes each way to go grab it. We'll see. Hopefully have some vids/data to post up soon.
