Maybe I missed it, but what fuel caused this? E-85 or the usual 15% crap?

I wish I could get E-85, the stuff around here often doesn't quite make E-70.
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...

I keep having to add a gallon or two of 91 octane to mine. I'm sitting at 67% right now. Slowly creeping up though.

Didn't take any pictures or videos as I went by myself, but I went out to California Speedway for some AutoX this past Saturday. The event was held by Fastivus. Did some laps. My 5-6 year old tires were really holding me back.... The rear end was sliding out from under me the whole time and when it wasn't, the front end was pushing......

Had the speed up for a tight section and was trying to whip the rear around to setup for the next section .. .. .. Ended up doing this really slow looping slide right through this huge area of cones..... Did win the unofficial award for most cones collected (knocked down) for the day LOL

Noticed the Ghia wasn't pulling as hard as 'normal' -- found the seal between the hat and the carb had squirted out -- need to find a fix for that.....
