It's funney how the third cone always lets you know when you're going too fast.

^^^^^^ Isn't that the truth. ^^^^^ LOL.

Indeed. It was only after I pulled back to the staging area that I realized running square over a cone in the slalom meant I was zipping along way too fast.

Cool video, I'd probably do the same! That thing's gonna need a detail after that :-P

I got a lot of debris wedged between the rim and the sidewall on the left tires. One was leaking pretty bad. I limped it to Firestone to get them unmounted and cleaned. Will check pressures tomorrow to see if their work held up. The tread is fine.

Also: my ego :)

Well that's good that there wasn't any major damage except for your ego.

Damn, you'll be cleaning the inside of your car for a year getting all that dirt out.
