I haven't had it to the strip yet, and after experiencing the thrill of a road course track I will most likely NOT waste time going to the strip.

GaryK, I did practice good etiquete(sp?) at the track, as I knew I was going to get stomped in the curves... after all I did use the stock suspension and a the original Conti's that came on the car..... wore clear down into the wear lines in the tread.

Its still fun letting them pass you at the begining of a straight and catching them before they get to the halfway point....... of course I would start getting into the brakes since I do have a lack of track experience

I had several of the other drivers come up and want to know how I was catching them so quickly........ hopefully I'll be able to hang with them in the twisties after getting some more track time, better suspension, better tires.....
