Lots of things went wrong today and I was starting to think heck just sale it.And start trying to work on it.
But once I fired it and took it for a test drive.With my son with both of us with big smiles.I knew it is all worth it.Stopped on a back street and floored it.It spun the tires into to 2nd gear,I've never had it do that.I wanted to go back and look at the tracks they must have been at least 30 plus feet long.But my son said Dad we better just get out of here.
Also I noticed even though the tires were spinning.The car still moved forward it did not just sit and spin.It felt GREAT,and to see the big smile on my son's face made it all that much better.

Hey Scoop,

Re-reading your post made me think about my car. Ever since my "2 houses down/across the street" neighbor complained and my work has gotten VERY busy lately, I haven't driven my car in about 3 weeks.

I'll have to take it out this weekend.
