I went ahead and ordered some fuel rails from racetronix - might as well finish the fuel system.

Well I did it - I scheduled a "trial" of a spinal cord stimulation device. It should cover some of my pain, hoping it might be enough to allow me to enjoy things a little more.


Weather usually sucks until May anyways.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Having lived 3 years with a pars interarticular is fracture.  I feel your pain brother. Anything that might help, do it.  I'll never forget waking up from surgery in the recovery room.  Even all doped up from the anesthesia, I felt like a new man.  Good luck!

No news on the car. With any luck within the next couple weeks Iíll be going to have surgery to permanently install a spinal cord stimulator. The trial went well, other than them shoving a lead thru my spinal canal. Looks like Iíll be down for a couple months but other side I should be more comfortable.

Glad to hear. Being in constant pain is under rated by those who have never been in pain. You got this!
