Tom, you really need to get a lsd. I know they are a chunk of change but I bet you could make it back in reduced tire wear in 1-2 years. My inside front was spinning even with the torsen and a 18mm sway bar.
J -

You drove really well. I just hate that you had issues with the mechanicals.

"Tom, you really need to get a lsd. I know they are a chunk of change but I bet you could make it back in reduced tire wear in 1-2 years."

*chuckling*

I think that is on the list after this past weekend.

I enjoy running in the stock class and most of the time can keep pace pretty well.

After watching you guys run on a track that favors smaller cars like ours, I wasn't even close. A 3 second delta is an eternity.

I'll have more video up in the next couple of days and you will see that I was peddling for all I am worth.

In looking at my times, I was very consistent in the mid 1:52 range. That tells me that I am squeezing all that I can out of the little car.

Upgrades to the equipment will help those times to come down.

So, I guess I am going to start saving for my journey into the prepared classes...
