I am gonna hit the next one guys. Didn't want to drive a half hour just in case something came up and you didn't make it out. Ended up polishing and waxing the car.

Was many funs. I totally get why Brad wants a miata. Was a super blast for 'cheap'. Can't wait till the G feels like that but in roids. Managed a 35.2. I think the quickest times were super low 31's. Not sure if anyone had a 30.xx or not

Holy crap this is early. Being to work at 5 in auburn hills (45 min drive) vs going in at 5-6 in Livonia (10 minutes or less) is a huge difference.

just under a half a mile IIRC from Aku?

so about the same length as an MSU event........but much less technical and far faster/flowy.

Assuming the miata was like the grape it was pretty much WOT/coast/WOT/coast/WOT finish

I think that's how timmeh said he was driving it and is possibly why he was a bit slower than I. I actually did use the brake so I could be on the gas longer before needing to actually turn. Plus I'd stay on the brake while turning it a bit to get the car to rotate a little. But there was deff a lot less brake that if I had been in the G that's for sure haha.

Also that Red Grand Sport Corvette was super mc angry and sounded amazing. On the way home from my parents house Timmeh and I saw that car again at 10mile and Novi
