GREAT RUN !!

I know that you are relatively new to the sport, but THAT's the way you AX.

Great seat position, throttle control and hand work/position.

You looked very cool and under no pressure whatsoever.

That's how great runs are made.

AWESOME JOB!

Thanks -

Our club had a big tune-up the week before, and I learned a *ton* (as good as an Evo school). Still off our club's top STS drivers, but now in the 10ths rather than seconds

I just broke out of Novice, and this wasn't a points event, so I don't have anything going for our club yet. I'm *really* looking forward to next season (well, not my wallet - 16in wheels and camber plates are next).

I'm missing out on the next AX to run the SCCA PDX/HPDE at Rockingham.

No - I've got a Schroth Rallye4 harness:

Works great, and the harness pads really helped the comfort level.

They bolt in - I used the seat bracket and the bracket for the shoulder belt as attachment points for the lap belt, and the seat belt mount points in the rear under the seat. If you want I'll take pics of each mount point and post.
