    Nobody has a serious resolution so far?

    After spending some time thinking about it, I have a couple resolutions that are kind of boring but past due.

    1. Get my crap organized and sell all the old crap I don't need anymore. I am horribly unorganized and can never find the part I need when I need it. Plus I am wasting space with old parts that need to be sold.

    2. Also step up my game as far as overall appearance and prep of my car/trailer. No more painter's tape covering holes in my car, mismatched wheels, mismatched paint schemes or body parts, half-assed setup, etc. I hope to become just one step closer toward a "professional" operation. I won't say anything about my truck because I can pretty much guarantee it will continue to be a muddy mess most of the time.

    Mine were serious.

    I'm also going to quit drinking till the Super Bowl (and no alcohol the Friday before race weekends), cut way back on red meat, eat more fish, hit the gym four times a week and ride my bicycle regularly.

    Mine were serious. Do you have any goals related to having a professional operation or do you just want to have less fun? :-D

    Yeah I know some were serious. I was just kidding. Eating more fish sounds like a good one!

    Just one step closer which still leaves me about 9 steps away. I just want to be more organized in cleaner and safer equipment. Fun is still at the top of the list.

    Downsize my wheel and tire size and width, yet still run the same times or faster times with less grip.

    Blow up something in the drivetrain or put the car in the wall/roll it over in the 2nd half of the year because I'm outdriving the car, not being outdriven (100% serious)

    Just to get out to the track again. It's been a year and a half.

    Nothing now! In 2012 it was a new job, a move, a home sale, a home remodel, my Daughter graduating college, and my Son getting married. As it stands now, 2013 looks free and clear.

    Your resolution is to blow something up and put the car into a wall and/or roll it over? Need a sponsor?

    It makes sense. There is a big "fear of the unknown" factor to smashing up the car the first time. Once you've done it and know what it entails, it may well deter you from doing it again but at least it's not an unknown.

    Sort of like when you drop tires in the dirt the first time.

    Yup. I quit drinking for one month every January. And, Richard, this is something I do on my own.

    Not really fear, I just want to push the car so far it can't take it anymore.

    I quit drinking every night between midnight and 2:00 a.m. No telling when I might start drinking again, but I do have to stop on the aforementioned schedule . . .
