What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

I am visiting northwestern Connecticut to spend time with my mother after the not unexpected death of my father this past week. This is what greeted me when taking the dog for the morning walk at the “Inn” - yes, Lime Rock racetrack is in the next town over.

After this, instead of going down the street to grab our breakfast, I blasted around the country roads a bit first. I have had to drive so slow with the wife and dog in the car, despite knowing the roads, so it was a nice break to be solo with basically no one else on the roads. It would have been more fun in the GTI, but the turbo Outback does very well and can handle the unimproved roads that have to be used to get to some spots around the area.
