    Today is my birthday and I get one wish...to see Precious Metal on the ramp in Reno soon. Keep pushing PM crew. Truly a thrash for the ages! We are proud of you!

    Next worry will be the xc trip. Thom probably hasn't had much sleep in the last 48 hrs. Hope he has a chase plane and 5 hour energy, red bull...whatever it takes to get him here safely. Maybe Steve Hinton should fly half way and meet up with him for escort back to Reno. Wouldn't that be cool!

    Hey everyone, waiting for big t-storms to roll past, then test flights, and Thom will be on his way. She looks damn good cowled up folks! I've had less than 5 hours of sleep since Tues. can't wait to get her on the road!

    From the Facebook post.
    "PM update.

    Everything is working beautifully and all systems check good. But, now we have Mother Nature to deal with. Tops of the Cb's locally are 65k feet... So to error on the safe side we will not depart this evening.

    The entire crew has worked their tails off to accomplish this second engine build and replacement in record time. It's nice to see the entire gang sitting around the hangar admiring their work, instead of stressing over a deadline.

    We'll make it to the races in time, provided we have no major issues enroute.

    Standby for more updates."

    Sounds like they are good to go, and able to get some sleep before heading out.

    Will

    ...but "Animal House" and Talledega Nights" were already made.
