Yeah me too!
Oh, but my car is not photogenic, in fact it's not even pleasing to the naked eye, so I wouldn't be surprised if my car was passed....hmmm that would mean my car was passed in more ways than one!

I need to get one of those timers for Track Day this coming Saturday and see if I can improve my time.

Woody,

I think Andy said he took like 1000+ pics so I think he has a few of you too. I'll ask him later.

No timer is allowed for the short course folks......this is why us SLS guys don't go anymore. Most of the upper SCCA folks were cool with the idea of leaving the timer on for the "track day" folks but just one person's stance ruined it for all. But when this person talked to Barry R. he acted like it was no big deal.....the guy's a p###y. This is why Barry R., Terry N. and myself have "boycotted" the SCCA Track Day.

Hey, more than likely I'll be there. Timers are for rent, if you'd like.

Speaking of records, does anyone know all the track lap time records? (fastest overall lap, fastest fwd, fastest rwd, etc.) I'm curious...

I thought this car was gonna come out and set some reccords too... heh. http://speedhawaii.com/sp.cgi?t=main...vo_project.htm

Uh, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Mike Ward just set the new record for Street cars (the non-unlimited class) at a 37.60. That's fast! "bring it on!"

Hey guys,

Thanks for the compliments so far. The photos I sent Dirk were unedited. I think the edited ones look much nicer.

As for Friday, yes I'm off. What's goin on?

REH- you were driving the psycho RX-7 correct? I got some shots of you as well. I got one with a little poof of flame (inside the silencer) as you were downshifting for the off-camber.

HMAJNG - the Black 318 or 325, yes? Don't worry - I got you too. I *think* I got at least one photo of every car that ran.

After looking at the photos (over 1200!) I learned a bit. I need to change some settings here and there, but it was a good experience. I really need to remember to bring my monopod (exactly what it sounds like - a one-legged tripod) when I use the "big" lens like I did for SLS. Holy crap that thing weighs a ton after 20 minutes. I even grumbled a bit after lunch when it was time to pick up the camera and go back to work Heh...that'll teach me to leave gear at home!

-Andy

I understand what you're saying. Recognition by association is nice and all, (we live in little ole Hawaii, after all), but if you really look at the SLS, this is a new idea ALL on it's own. Tell you the beginnings over beer.

I will be "tanoshimini ni matte iru" about this "hanashi" for sure.

I tell you, I am thankful for SLS and am sad about the break we will have. "Shouganai" I'll have to start golfing more I guess.

"Tokorode" did you see my post about the meeting at Kapolei HS tonight? Saw it on the news.

Shikataganai about the Reesujo, but didn't catch the news. Instead of golf, how'z about some RC racing instead? I have a couple of F1 cars itching to go 50mph. Ya know you get the same feeling (as a driver). Don't need the amount of space either.

You should put together some R/C drift cars and come out to that instead. About 20+ drivers every Tuesday night (that's not raining) at Iwilei Costco.

I've got a 1/10th electric Mini on the way (should get here today). I will check out the drifting... it sounds fun. The outside location is kinda junk considering our current weather. Hopefully things clear up soon!

My first post and I'm already asking for something....

I had a great time and met alot of great people. I especially liked how everyone is so positive and willing to help. I wish I discovered this sooner and really hope I didn't discover too late...

Mahalos to everyone for supporting a noob!

Where can I sign up for meetings, info, classes, etc?

Which MR2? There were three of us racing. Then again, I've that lousy ABS, so I'm guessing it's the Silver MKI.

I'm 257R - White MR2

Thanks for taking the time doing this for everyone. Much appreciated!

First off, I'm glad all of you enjoyed your time out on the track, and I'm glad everyone came out to experience what we have to offer! As far as classes and meetings, we really don't have meetings, but Tom Bryant does offer a performance driving clinic along with Formula Mirage training...trust me...you'll take at the very least a second off your lap time as he teaches you the in's and out's of the track. It's a good deal...

We're still looking to the future...we'll hopefully only have a momentary break in the series as things settle down and we see what happens with the track. We'll do it in a huge parking lot if need be...heh.

Sorry- I forgot there were a couple out there. The silver one - 85R I believe it was.

3 MR2s? I only remember 2 of 'em. There was an MRS... and your white car, and the silver car. Are you counting the red 'un?

The Results have been posted for Round 3. I'm missing data for several of the new folks' cars...such as car make/model and color. If you're one of these people, please email me your info @ michaeljkitchens@users.easynews.com

http://www.superlapseries.com/Result...rresults06.htm

Also, as most of ya'll have seen, I'm horrible with numbers, so if I screwed up something, please let me know! Thanks!

Mike, I sent you an email, but I'm not sure if you got it or not.
My car is a 318is (4 banger) not an M3...I wish!
It's also black in color.

Mahalo for putting on a great event!

Hmmm...I didn't know that!
The last time I was out there with Terry and Barry, Troy loan be his timer, so I thought it was cool.
I don't understand what's the big deal, it's not like we're racing!
Well, this will be the last one for awhile, and I like to help out Gerald with flagging the corners. However, I may need to join in the boycott as well.
Once when it was raining, they had the Track Day drivers go out early to dry the track...I was rather upset for being used in that way. Then at the last race they were going to do that again, so I got on the radio and said no, no we have track (slick) tires too. Hence the workers were credited for this Track Day....okay, time to cool off now.
Dirk, why did you have to get me started!
