yeah, it doesn't have to be SCCA, i know there are others out there.

amen to pushing the car on one of your runs, one thing i learned last year (rookie season) is to push it on your FIRST run, as much as you want the first run to be your "feeler" run, IMO that's a wasted run. go all out your first run and see what happens, make adjustments from there.

Absolutely GLU. Course walks are your "feeler" runs. First run; flat out, hammer down!

Alot of scrubbing ... what tires are you using?

Thanks I can't believe how well I can manage this car Ive had some bad accidents in other vehicles in the past so I always make sure that I know how to recover when I surpass my limit.

tires are Bf goodrich g force sports. Not the stickiest tire, but it was most logical last year when I bought them because I wasn't 100% sure I going to stick with the sport now I wish I'd sprang for dunlops star specs once these are burnt out They will be the replacements i believe.

Nice Runs! that course looks fun!

here is a vid from yesterdays event. it's a new venue for us, it's a small road course we found out in the middle of no where. we only ran the north side of the course, the south side is just a big loop.
results: pax 15th out of 57 drivers.

i will upload some other videos later.
check out the clouds! believe it or not, we got some light snow (didn't stick) yeah, May 1st and still getting snow. it wouldn't be surprising if we were in salt lake, but we were pretty far south where it hardly ever gets snow..

as you can see, i left so much time out there. i'm not use to those kind of "road course" corners. i coasted sooooo much around them. i started to figure them out during our "fun runs" unfortunately. oh well, i still had a blast!!
