Wind Chill factor corrected temperature.

Aka 32°F air temp, feels like 25°F.

That's my guess, and I'm stickin to it!

Congrats on getting that through enhanced inspection Terry!

Pulled my exhaust all apart last night to redo munts in rubber. I was getting a irritating vibration at 80mph (normal pittsburgh cruising speed) So naturally i thought i screwed up a driveshaft angle or something and it had me paranoid for days. As i drove it more i noticed the vibration was more rpm dependant than speed dependant. It was showing up under moderate load in the 3300-3500 range. So a couple nights ago i decide to remove the muffler section and go for a drive to see if maybe muffler resonance was the cause. Turns out it was. My thoughts are that it was acting like a tuning fork being a dual setup and hard mounted shaking the chassis. With muffler removed the vibrations were gone. A quick needle bury also assured me my driveline is up to the task of smooth ride.

I havent driven it yet but I assume this should fix it. The middle section of exhaust is still solid mounted because of clearance. If any noise still transfers, i can add another bellow before the hardmount

Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

I hope it takes off quickly, that left rear tire looks nearly flat...

Cripes, it *is* a Matador! At first glance I thought it was this car... plane... whatever:
