Gary, use the site and sell them to someone on here. You are running third through 5? ewwww. The bikes go much slower than the cars through 5 . I would love to go around with you up there whenever I make it. We'll have to hook up . does that thing have enough butt to stay ahead till the bridge when you get them in 9?

3rd gear

yes if they take the stupid line and follow the track edge.i stay in the middle w/steering wheel about on dotted lines by the bridge and straight down to ten. a little brake and onto the straight. i was suprised how well the little bugger took the hill in 4th. it might be a little faster in 3rd, but much smoother in 4th. every less downshift means two less shifts. and third was comfortable in 5, shift to 4th before seven. my buddy rob talked me into trying it and he was right. i used to be in 4th on front straight till timing tower, now im in 5th by pit out. btw, the idiot in the m3 was going into turn8 from the left side of the track. also caught (almost tailended) a poorly driven gt3 porsche going into one. money doesnt mean talent. and vinny thanks again for the 40's comment.

I lost to a 65 year old woman in her Cadillac. My wife will back that up! She wanted to race me at a light and blew me away. I have never seen anything like it before!!!!!

So a 65 year old actually wanted to race? You go grandma!
Hey, did she do a burnout?

That makes me happy to hear that... I know if I still have most of my reflexes you would not want to run me when I'm 65...by then I'll have the money to have STUPID fast cars and I'll be hitten my mid-life crisis. lol.

no offense about gt3. i owned exotics in my past life, including lots of porsches. i was behind a slow 911 and tried to be polite by letting gt by w/a wave through. my bad. btw theres a gentleman in his seventies who runs a very fast audi at summit, harold. 500 hp vettes could not catch him. and i rember this fella p.l.newman who won a few scca titles and didnt start racing until he was in his fifties. cmon out. we will drink beer and tell lies. the more beers, the faster we'll be in our stories.
