yeah, we have the best weather here. i was washing my car on saturday at lunch and it decided to downpour over my house, there was some thunder too. the small cloud went away and then the sun came out like nothing happened. LOL.. at least i didn't have to rinse the car.

they take a small break for a couple months, because the state fair uses the same lot as auto X

^^ so that's when you buy wrist bands at times and go enjoy the rides with your gf/sig other/hot chick...

you can also eat those bread stringy doughnut things with powdered sugar on it. but too much fried twinkies and pizza and stuff will make her fat... that's not always a good thing, you might have to go train after, bu....

i think they used to do stuff like that on the mainland - like auto-x/gymkhana with a passenger with a pointy stick.

they'd put potatoes on the ground, and the passenger would have to stab them with the pointy stick as the driver negotiated around them and the cones.

the more potatoes speared, the higher the score.

i decided to double check the date on my hemlet. its too fricken old. the SMELLY one is still good. it smells like old leathery feet wrapped in burnt bacon. or like an old dried sweaty watch band. hard to describe. wet dirty socks, maybe.

so i soaked it with a readily available disinfectant, lysol "summber breeze"

... and now it smells like some kind of vaginal product. therefore, i will too.. auuryte. i really soaked it, i doubt its gonna dry by tomorrow.. LOL

listen to me talk up a bunch of crap!! LOL
alot of folks had interesting finishes

I feel ok about my times. It was Greek to me in the begining. My car felt more and more familiar through the day. Haven't been making it out as much as I used to.
33.0 I believe on run #4 in the event it may have been 34flat...I know it was flat, we'll have to see the results.
32.6 in fun runs also a 32.8 so I was finding some consistancy


I like Dave's theory at the T&T: "I'm dropping a 1/2 second everyrun"
kombi: "How many runs before you get to zero"
bra, if dat works... teach me



ahh I am just beat and I got a heap of pics

saw that slide, was actually in the U-turn there taking pix... I have pix of it. Not in super sharp focus though. Nice reverse lights at the end haha
Watching you shows how much time I lost going through the 3 cone slalom. I know I was conservative, but damn if our runs were overlaid you would have went by me like I was standing still. Good showing spike. I need to make more events...

Thanks! No ways, I thought you were into the 30 or 31's. The best I ran was a 32.9.

I think I could've made a 31 though. After reviewing my videos, i realized that I could've entered the second straightaway MUCH faster but I instead braked where I was supposed to gas.

Here's my quickest run from outside and from my roof.

no no spike not that fast

If anything I'm getting stale or staying the same cause I don't make it out very often.
And you're still climbing the ladder, haven't leveled off yet.

don't let me being in SM fool you, I could come out in a stock cobalt w/ the same tires and be within .5seconds of the same time.
