Smile 9/27/09

and then

oh man. that was a tough layout. killa turns. i had my tuning right but my driving wasn't there.

almost DNF'd twice @ 44 seconds. car was doing as expected, a little stiffer on the shocks would be great.

you had to think about this course, cones were all over the place and a couple of them i couldn't see right away, for some reason i kept forgetting the end was a u-turn. haha.. it was tricky. i lost track of various lines that i was supposed to be at on each run. don't ask me why, i have no clue..

basically, i had tons of fun but i sucked balls. i feel that this was an excellent learning experience for me.

at least my helmet smelled fresh even though my cat peed on it earlier in the week. i asked a few people to smell it because i did a good job cleaning it but... nobody wanted to.

42.4X was the best i could do... and that was on my first run! LOL

41.3xx was my best on my 4th run

I agree, the course was a lot more challenging than it usually is. I really liked the first half of the course but once the second half crept up, I started losing track of the course. I couldn't keep up. I wish I could have done some fun runs, would've been good practice to keep my eyes and brains moving quicker too.

Dave, how did the tire pressures work out?

Spike, how does the damping setting work for you?

LOL.. i didn't buy a fun run card and i'm guessing anyone can ride along in the heat, so that would be cool if you wanna ride along and see how i do. criticism is always wanted.

the next event is the last one before the TnT. as a reminder, registration closes tomorrow.

you can always buy a fun run card at the tent in the morning if I recall.

I'm not a member anymore. I don't make enough events a year to break. Though I rather miss the magazine. so I be a walkup and weekend member.
also to much changes in my life, so its hard to pre-reg

With+8 clicks stiffer at the front, it's actually handling more ideally now. I think I just need to learn when to brake hard so that I can get the back to kick out. I've done it a few times but I'm not sure what I did.

Are you going to this weekend's event? I was looking for you on the 27th just to realize I have no idea what you look like or what you drive.

I'd be more than happy to give you all of my magazines haha. Let me know if you are going to attend an event and I'll hand them off to you then.
