    So I am instructing this past weekend at the annual St. Louis chapter fall DE. I am breaking in a new track toy, a POS-325e tastefully modified with some modest upgrades. Been awhile since I have had a nice Bimmer so I was looking forward to the weekend.

    Saturday morning I pop the hood and much to our surprise and enjoyment I have managed to house some potential road kill.

    We prodded this thing with a jack handle but all that managed to do was piss it off royally. I get the bright idea to start the car, pull to a grassy spot and shoo the thing away. As soon as we started this little critter felt the heat from the headers and scrambled out of the engine bay, RIGHT TOWARDS MY OPEN WINDOW!!!!!!! I was in full panic mode trying to get the windows closed so I would not become a critter casualty before turning a lap. He jumped off the car and found a new home quickly!

    Needless to say the driver's meeting was a no holds barred assault on Bud and his Arkansas heritage. I tried to get the last shot in by announcing to the track manager that his food was so bad I brought my own. We had tremendous weather and a great turnout to end the season. And my little POS-325...............Watch out, I have mad dog HP and TQ now!

    The tale from the beginning!

    Open hood to this.



    Poke the critter just royally pissing it off. Note jack handle in hand!



    Bright idea to start the car and move to a suitable location for shooing! Damn thing starts to run for its life! Note the car windows are down and I am slowly coming to grasp with the situation.



    I am now in full on panic mode as this little creature is eyeball to eyeball with me and really mad! I am frantically getting to my window switches but cannot seem to find the driver switches. The little beast jumped off the car from my driver side window and ambled off down the pit road.
