NICE JOB MAN!
that is some outstanding driving!

i'll be taking my svt out this weekend (it's been down for the past 3 races) luckily for me i have some sticky street tires!
i guess what i'm lacking is your super dope driving skills! can i borrow them? we've got a utah vs idaho thing goin on this weekend.
did you leave the SVT in first gear on the 37 second course??
that's the type of course i'll be up against this weekend..

ya, i left it almost all in 1st, i hit second and got to about 53-55 mph in one spot, but the rest was first gear! the gearing helped alot,

so, i just found out, i can run R-comps like A048's or v710's (which i happened to have both of) and i didn't know that was allowed in a stock class. my pax times were less than a 1/2 second out and i messed up on a corner too! so i could have walked away w/ 1st overall :( o well

o ya, and i can send you my driving skills for 10 bucks. i'll give you my paypal and then i will mail them to you! lol

^^^Please keep sales items in the proper forums!

Yeah, you would have had a great chance at an overall 1st place on R-Compounds.

I'm half tempted to take a few things off my car, and beat em up in H-Stock next year.

i would love to run hstock. but the competition isn't there. i think there is only 1 guy running it. aside from the occasional rookie.
that's one of the reasons i'm running ST, a lot of consistant racers are in the class.
although, i'd like to give DSP a try down the road. fun cars and nice guys to run with. and i could run coilovers w/race tires! oh and an orp.

brad, if i do horrible this weekend then the money is in the bank, so to speak. LOL
