Default 2/21/10 - 2009 season event number 11

what? you guys didn't go? (spike, kombi)

you missed it. tight track, perfect weather.

i barely broke 40 and was glad i did. 39.9xx .. lol.

my competition in the red mustang got me by just over a second... unless i do some work to the car i don't think i'll catch him again. my brakes are lackluster and suspension is completely stock aside from springs and shocks.

one thing i realized is that my anti-lock brakes and/or traction control is activating sometimes. that's the shuddering i feel when i'm braking hard and turning, it delays and screws up my smoothness. i thought i was just killing the car but i gotta find a way to turn that sh*t off. my engine delayed power a few times and i thought it was cuz i run with a 1/4 tank and air was getting in. the traction control would cut the motor, i found that out in my new truck

ok then, see you next time...lol.

I dunno man, I might be out for the rest of the season. For one thing I am very tight on money right now...and another thing is my car is in dire need of some basic maintenance that I don't have time to do. It needs a transmission fluid change and I gotta do the rear alignment (again....).

I looked at the times in ST and I was surprised that there was a little bit of flip flop in the times. Randall Aton didn't take first place :O

Hopefully I'll be able to jump in before this season ends. I just can't make any promises haha. You'll probably be a lot better than me by the time I get back. I'm extremely out of touch with how my car handles, especially with these bad boys:
