Imagine you pour a tablespoon of water into your hand and throw it as far as you can. Now suppose you suck up a tablespoon of water with a syringe, push the plunger and squirt it out. Which would go farther?
Huge advances in automotive technology have led to the development of high-tech fluids to keep pace. A simple example of this is the cooling system. For decades it was primarily made out of iron, steel and rubber hoses. At the time, there was only one kind of coolant available to protect these components from corrosion.

The logistics of getting out to California were challenging for many of my fellow pros, so I hired someone to bring my rig out west. That would give me more time at home, where our new house project is still underway, and it meant that I could fly out and spend some time with Jasper Engines and Transmissions clients before the practice period started. I met up with some great guys at Lake Berryessa and we enjoyed a couple of fantastic days on the water, which got me in a good frame of mind.
