Wink My 1st race in 2011 is the first week in June

Looking forward to my first race in 2011.

Just registered for the "Jersey Devil" @ NJMP Thunderbolt which runs the first weekend in June.

This is also my first National SCCA race, so I'm a bit nervous....

But the car has had some good upgrades over the winter, revised front suspension, a billet crank, some updated aero and a custom header that is dyno tested to show an 8-12 pts increase in WHP/WTQ in midrange with no peak losses. Peak 170WTQ spans approx 5750 > 6750 RPM and still makes 140 WTQ near redline.

Details are in my engine and suspension build threads.

This is going to be fun. The test day I did back in April for the suspension went well.

I'm looking forward to seeing how well the new header performs on track also. It will be nice to go wheel to wheel again, it's been over 7 months.....

Make sure you post some videos, I will probably be contacting you about setup down the road.

Do you run NASA / PDA events? I am going to do about 6 events this season. I love Thunderbolt at NJMP. I also have done lighting.
