*rant*

Well... last night we were going to run my TA at the track for the first time....
I drove it like the whole way to the track [like 15-20 miles]... and RIGHT as I turn into the drive for the track... the TA dies. After letting it cool down for about ten minutes [the car was feeling pretty hot... but ALL of my gauges are disconnected so I didn't realize untill then]... it runs GREAT! I go in... pay... and park in the pits. We add some water to the radiator... charge the battery a bit... and there seems to be no problem. I go... tech in... go back around to get in the staging lanes... and it dies... AGAIN! By this time I'm just frustrated. I crank it over one more time and drive it back to the pits... and as I turn to park... it dies... AGAIN! So we pop the hood and try to figure out whats wrong... and we spend the next hour or so toying with it trying to get it to crank over and it just won't. I ended up having to tow her home... and to top it off... the tow rope broke when I was a half mile from my house. It was a crappy night to say the least.

Moral of the story: Don't drive anything made by GM.

basically when the car overheated it just screwed up the distributor coil so it wouldn't ignite the fuel *sigh*
