Been a while, but stuff has happened

First things first, we tried to play Shadowrun on Sunday but health issues came up for a couple of our players. One is recovering from C-19 and got tired really quick, and the other ran out of brain meds because insurance and was not managing to think straight, so we quit early because tired and not thinking straight makes the game not fun for everybody. We did get my character sheet fixed before then and basically I’m a street samurai with a minor in rigging, level 6 pilot ground car. That makes me level 6 guns, blades, and ground vehicles which if I understand the rules is as high as I can go in all of those.

Other things, I’m still plugging away at that engine giveaway. The build video has been released and the engine pulls to 7000 RPM and makes over 500 HP and also good low-end torque, so aside from weighing close to 600 pounds would be really good for the Sprint-T. Also POWERNATION has announced the winner of the 5 liter Ford giveaway and it wasn’t me >sigh<.

Now I was doing some research and the biggest bore available with an aluminum LS block is 4.2", which combines with the OEM cranks of 3.26", 3.622", and 4", results in displacements of 361, 401, and 443 cubic inches respectively, and they would all weigh about 415-420 pounds depending on the FEAD I pick. Now that 4.2" bore block runs about $6k bare but fully machined, so unless I win the lottery this one is an exercise in possibilities, not realities. I could walk to the local C-store (just barely) and get a ticket today for tonight's drawing, making this something that could happen IRL for me. But it's dark now so I have to wait for sunrise to leave so the C-store will be open. The good thing is we are post a cold front passing through so it's not ghastly hot today. Today's Powerball is $388 million for a $2 ticket and the Lotto is $15.25 million for a $1 ticket. I just have to wait until sunrise…
