ZenRanger94 well then, if I'm not the only one then I don't feel so bad.

one of the events last year had some high speed, but this last one wasn't one of them. they did a hell of a job making it pretty technical. Smooth and steady was the rule for this one. Chris, how you got that damn vette through those wiggle boxes like you did is beyond me.

notinfocus Hey Ken, you're not the only one, Scott's was starting to do the same thing.

Sooooooooooo jealous!!! I'll bet you get some high speeds too. Over half of our events I never leave first gear!

That course took about 3 to 4 hours the day before to set up. Very few cars stay in first gear to drive our courses,(mayby a Z06 cause of the gearing) I don't think it was all that fast, I wasn't close to redline in second, 78mph through the slalom like helena events.

bobkat3999 this thing happened to me on may 24th... hot day, autoxing, my ps fluid overheated foamed and once i let it cool down the power steering started working.. but not to its full capacity. i ended up having to get the power steering pump and rack replaced. thank god i still have the warranty on my car.

steve35svt WOW, must be a large lot ! how many runs do you get with suth a long course?

ZenRanger94 yeah this course was about 2min30sec for the best and I ran a 2min48sec, so I bet the length of the course didn't help
