its alright dave, the end links will probably do more harm than good until I figure out the sweet spot for adjusting them....then there's the part where I need to get used to the new feel of he car.

lol, not today. but had some tail wagging action on my last run. i went into the slalom a little too hot and my rear started swinging wildly. I held it though but I lost all my time

I think I was on the verge of hitting a high 37...ugh...

i did good, thanks. nice sweeping turns on that layout. still learning to stay on the lines i pick and keep the car on its limit longer. i'm kinda glad i didn't upgrade the shocks yet, gives me time to grow with the car.

39.6x was the best i could do but it was good enough to keep ahead of that red mustang and beautiful impala

how'd it go for you? you ran in the morning heat, right?

I'm Dirk, one of the Tech Inspectors - drive the silver MINI Cooper with the aloha stripes, DSP 373 (formerly SM 08). So, which guy are you?

Yes, it was an awesome course!

Yeah, I ran heat1. I ran 35.9 but couldn't catch Aaron or Mark.

(edit : just saw results....I guess I was 30th overall. CoryTomo was 5th overall!)

you know, the whole time i thought it was a 38.27. i was trippin, still you increased the gap to .900

the second part of the course seemed easier for me, idk why. i had a hard time lining up in the cross over.

Man I could've sorn that I would've landed that high 37 if I didn't mess up at the slalom on my 4th run....despite that screw up, I still managed a 39.

Gah...i've been kicking myself ever since because I was already too worn out to try to beat that time during fun runs.

i noticed i didn't have something right, i adjusted my seat and my wheel so i'm more comfortable. i don't seem to shift around in the seat as much and i can see better.

so dude, next time......... i'm gonna close that gap!

mullet man has always been about .2 of a second faster than me. It's more of a neck and neck thing, you and your mustang friend are the ones doing the chasing.
