lol and yeah he will, huh.......

so if I sign up online for ST class, do I have to pick a number not being used? because I'd like to stick with one.

and I'd hope that having such an underpowered car that when I boost it I can stay in ST. lol.

i'm not giving you any pointers Mike, sorry!

JK! this course will have multiple lines. which are the fastest? i dunno!
they always seem like the right ones when you course walk, but when you drive... it's a whole different story!

well what a day!
first, lets get this out of the way. i beat Mike!! haha. i finished the day with a 63.7xx i believe Mike had a 68.8xx? all BS aside, thanks for coming out Mike. hope you had fun. i also hope you come back for at least one more event before the season is over.

now i understand why tires are THE most important (next to working on driving skills) upgrade you can make. these tires are so sweet. i'm pretty sure i could have pushed my car harder then i did and the tires would have held up. (they aren't even close to being broken in, 45 miles on them including the race)
i pax'd higher then i ever have, out of 104 drivers i pax'd 36th. TTOD (car) was a 56.xx Elise.
there were 6 drivers in ST today and i placed 3rd. behind the subie 2.5RS (he pax'd 2nd overall!!! truly an amazing driver in an underprepared car) also behind a nissan 240sx.

i'm pretty happy with how i drove today, i ended up having to take my 2.0 zx3 out because two of my wheel studs were stripped on my SVT :( the extra power would have helped my time today. oh well, she will be ready soon enough. if sparco would ever finish my brackets...!

i'll get a vid up later tonight.

damn there were 6? so I was fourth in ST at one time? hmm.....

btw Mark it's ok, as far as rematch status SPI>SVT still because you ran the ZX3



and I fish tailed all over today.....ate a ton of cones too at different times. I'm just waiting for Julian to send me the video. I'm SO making it my avie as an animated gif

but yeah thanks for getting that all set up. I had a great time today. just wish I would have eaten breakfast like I should have lol. probably would have helped the times. I could NOT focus (no pun intended).

btw I just got back on campus (and wow is my face and neck red. but not in the right places! my face is red where the helmet covered it and the rest is normal. LOL?) I left home about quarter to 9. I'm so tired right now.

haha Mike!! i'm pretty sure i could have taken that old sebring and whooped ya yesterday!
i take it you didn't read the first page of the registration thread aye?? it says bring sun-block! i learned my lesson.. you get baked out there.

i hear ya, i didn't eat once before a race... big mistake. you feel uneasy and can't get i grip. (ha, no pun intended either!) Autox doesn't seem like it takes a lot out of you but it definitely does.

i pulled another 7am to 7pm day.. i better get worker of the year! ha.
