I've been missing the Charlotte crew, car events, etc... I've been pretty much working 2 jobs lately.

Overall been loving the supercharger setup - BUT beginning to dislike the Vortech bracket. Belt replacement is a bit cumbersome, and the only real blower upgrade option (new v7) is ~$3500. There is a possibility I end up going with a turbo setup, but it'll probably be 18 months before I take the plunge. If I went that direction, I'd go with the newer g25 turbo & Schmuck manifold / hot parts. We'll see if I end up going that direction.

Hope to see you guys soon.

I need to inspect my bushings and mounts. I'm good about changing fluids but seem to skip thorough inspections when the car is on a lift. I should probably go ahead and replace the TCT too.

Other than that, I would love to have the front bumper repainted with a clear bra applied. I need new floormats and new fender liners as well. It never ends

Dehydration and heat exhaustion are not the same thing; one can occur without the other. Last weekend I was at an event at VIR. Between driving and instructing, I was in a car 1 hour and out for 30 min.

I drank over one gal of water and Gatorade before 1 PM and still got heat exhaustion. I was sweating profusely (my cool shirt was wringing wet), chills, shaking uncontrollably, nausea, and vomiting (just water).

Saturday was a bad day. I decided to sit out every other session on Sunday and spend an hour in the ACd classroom most of the time. Not much fun, but not miserable either.

Between the two days, I drank 30 16oz bottles of water, 8 20oz Gatorades, and slept for 12 hours Sunday night.

The point is, when it's this hot, don't assume hydration alone will save you. Take care to keep your body cool.

WOW!!! Glad you are ok now and that you were able to listen to your body. That's a great example and detail of the difference. The converse to that if you STOPPED SWEATING in the heat that would is a clear sign that you are dehydrated.

If you stop sweating that's the next level after heat exhaustion - heat stroke - extremely dangerous.

I'm always on the lookout for parts for my project E30! Let me know if you need to get rid of anything.
