so it's 106* acording to our outdoor temperature thing, and i'm out in the sun sanding my roof! i'm attempting to get the '75 painted or at least primered, and get disc brakes on the front by WCSS6. hopefully i can get something acomplished before i go to reno for hot august nights. but with the recent shattered elbow and only working on it 1 maybe 2 days a week, we'll see where i get.

Finally some other northerners feeling the heat, in Redding, CA it was 106 too.

I didn't think it got that hot in OR.

Yea just wait till it gets 100 teens, 106 will feel balmy.

Good luck

We hit 100 in Bellevue today. Thermometer was crappy, but it matches the Thermo in my old Mercedes to about .5*C

I was sanding my wagon in that summer heat a few years back. Thankfully i was wet sanding with a hose running constantly so that helped keep me cool!

Drink plenty of water :) Dont wanna be pushing kidney stones out at WCSS6!

What is the speed limiter set at on the USDM STi? I know the US legal limit is 155 mph. It should be set at that. And no I am not crazy. It is nice here but not hot enough.

the electronic limiter is sat at 145 MPH so that's why I was wondering what would be the top speed of it without the limiter cause over here road and track had a competition for the top supercar and the STi beat out the Porshe GT3 byt a small margin but the #'s were almost the same for all tests and the margin was the price :grin: so that makes me think if there were just the minimum mods could it go over 200 on the bahn
