progress update

In the past 2 weeks we added an air-to-oil cooler from a 944 Turbo model, new brake pads, and new wheels/tires. Last night I tested the car in SCCA's Track Night in America (highly recommend their events) to bed the brake pads and scuff the tires. Ran a best lap of 1:44 with a 103 mph top speed. By comparison, I ran a 1:40 with a 122 mph top speed in the subaru at that track back in May. The porsche handling balance is better, but the 100 hp advantage makes a difference.

Frederic Bastiat

It came to my attention last week that some members of the family are not familiar with Frederic Bastiat's "Candle Makers' Petition", presented to the French Parliament in 1845 as a satirical critique of protectionist policies and occupational licensing generally.

A PETITION: From the Manufacturers of Candles, Tapers, Lanterns, sticks, Street Lamps, Snuffers, and Extinguishers, and from Producers of Tallow, Oil, Resin, Alcohol,and Generally of Everything Connected with Lighting.

Happy Birthday Megan
