Sure thing, Jeremy. Meeting you, and me mentioning Fast Friday™ as a resource for you made me think: "Uh, I don't have all of them in one place for this guy... or anyone."

They're chained together -- each links back to the previous week -- but there's nothing like random access.

Anyway, they're the best edited/curated group of Volvo performance writings I know of. And my exploration of other Volvo sites is about nil, so that statement is near-worthless :-). The mix of theory and street application is what makes FF great.

For anyone wondering: the current FF status is suspended, but can activate upon any regular or irregular submission.

Lucky got too busy to continue.
