I thought this blog might be a nice way to organise my thoughts, rather than spreading myself over Facebook, Google+ and Instagram, and then cross-sharing between.
Recently I decided that Facebook is really not for me anymore, too many random people adding me, and not required as I was previously pushing my business through a page there – which I am basically closing down and have a wages job again. So I already decided to onyl share on G+.
However, if only sharing on Google+, then why wouldn’t I just make the post there to start with?
And so I most likely will not be posting here anymore… at best I think this helped me realise that I really did not want to post everything on facebook, however am happy with Google plus and it’s far more transparent privacy via Circles.

Over and out.
Yesterday I had to go to Taupo Race Track to tune a mate’s car. Tuning involves me sitting in the passenger seat in a race suit and helmet, with a laptop in my lap trying to tune while he drives around the circuit. Oh, and did I mention others are racing around at the same time too?
It actually went very well, I worked out why his engine blew up (negative 15 degrees ignition split @ 20psi will do that) and we got some km’s on his new engine before oil leaks put an end to our day. We didn’t pinpoint the leak but it had saturated his gearbox scatter blanket anyway, so fire safety sensibility dictated we stop.
Club-K that ran the day for their club members kindly allowed us to bring a car to run, and SWMBO raced around in that while I was tuning. It was a good opportunity as she had never been on the circuit, having only competed in local Street Sprints and Hillclimbs.
Had an awesome time, one of the most well organised and relaxed groups of people I’ve seen.
Customer turns up:
Hi, can you fix my car today?
No, as you can see we’re flat out.
oh, but I need to take my car away this weekend.
so how long has it had this problem?
Umm about 3 weeks…
Are you fucking serious.
