I thought the teardown would be painful, nope wife came over to see what i was doing at the shop. See I told her we had a fender bender no big deal. She didn't think this looked like a little, now I really hurt. ��

Best to tell her the truth/what happened, they're always going to find out sooner or later.

Ouch

Getting punted to cause lots of damage for absolutely no reason hurts. Worse than a personal screwup or a 'that's racing' incident.

Forgot to speak about the STL program. A majors race in Ohio left only a few local STL participants around. We put the car on the pole, new brake compound so much more initial bite which is confident inspiring for me. Anyway cmp is a tire shredding track. Two poles two first place finishes. I must also thank tom, we had a persistent shifting issue with the last tune. Two data logs at hours after most are asleep and then first thing on Sunday morning. Fixed, tom you saved the day again. Thanks

Here is an in car from this weekend. The ITA car we were racing from the back due to a transponder no time issue. This is what follows, the STL car we sat on the pole sat and sun and won both. The video not so much.

That was exciting to watch. At least the roll over wasn't at speed like I was thinking it was.

Man that was bad on that IT7 driver. I was not at this event but we have talked a few times at the CMP events, was a couple years ago. That sucks about the sedan, at least it looks fixable. Curious how that STL car will do at Indy. Going to keep up with this thread.

Sourced a lot of new stuff, fenders, doors, hood, trunk, grille, headlamps, tail lamps, roof skin, oh yeah a friggin roof skin, rear contro arms, stuff keeps showing up as needed. So screw it off to the body shop today. Let's get this party started. Then the doc tells me that the pain in the knee after the roll over did more to my knee than just aggravated it. New MRI Monday. Well at least it's at the body shop. Will be bringing the 2 liter and all the new stuff for the STL build down to tom soon. Indy is not going to happen, was never really on the radar. The fast STL guys at the baseline track of VIR are running oh so fast, turning 2:08's. So that's the target but we have a longer term goal. Indy is this year, not for me, Sonoma is 2018, but really good rumor is 2019 VIR. My home track, two years to build this car for its best and my home track. So there is the long term, and we are second in the points for the SIC, which is the southern Scca championship for regional races. The STL car is becoming really comfortable but having the ITA car allows double testing of many things allowing us to move faster in the STL development. Will keep posting
