[T3] Back from the Hillclimb!

I just got back from the Mt Equinox hillclimb, and since this year we
actually had a dry weekend I took the Notch.

Boy what fun!  I wasnt able to officially race but I still got it up there
in less that 8.5 minutes for the 5.2 mile course.  Ya really need a 5 spd
for this kind of thing but it still ran great.  There is a distinct
advantage to having suspension travel when you hammer it over the rough
areas in the road.

The oil pressure seems adequate but it definately isnt what it would be
without the Full Flow.

One thing did really irritate me... after going through a half dozen or so
brake light switches before realizing that they arent compatable with DOT5,
I finally installed a mechanical one.  This switch was a nice 15 amp
microwave oven door switch.  Guess what? It Died!  I think Ive had no brake
lights more often than Ive had them, and if I didnt have the cruise Id never
know that they quit!

What next? I have a huge knife switch... wont look pretty but it will be
under the pedal cover... and THAT wont break!!
