Did the bump upset anyones cars going into the last big 180 ? It almost put me thru the outside wall... on my last run. I packed it in after that.. wasnt gonna take the chance..
It felt like a jump in my car! Holy cow! I was 3 wheeling it there.

Re: e92 M3 / 6th Gen Mustang Questions

435i 6MT?

E9x M3s dont have to get the bearings. I'd do em, but only a small number of cars ever had issues. 2-5%

I really like the new Mustangs. I have spent time in a GT350R and it blew me away.

Re: Post event 4

Fun course! I had to slow down to go faster in a lot of those 180s! Congrats to Brad on that 33 flat, that was moving! Thanks for the ride along also!

Re: This Sunday will be our last at Pellissippi

Pellissippi was the first place I ever raced a car, back in 08. Sorry to hear this news.

I am assuming that an Adessa like event couldn't be done 2-3 times a year? I never heard what happened to Walter State.

Re: Veloce on Saturday night?

I was there Friday night with my friend Issac Teasdale. Isaac is a professional motocross racer. He is 135 lbs soaking wet. Within two runs of each other, he set the second fastest time of the week at 25.010. Twice. I watched and tried to learn some, as I was .7 off him, but I just couldn't see a di...

I agree. I'm 240 lbs and can't break a 25.7xx no matter what I do there...

Re: C6 Z06 Info

Beautiful car! I love those wheels so much more than the chrome split 5 spokes on the earlier Z06s.

Re: Congrats Aerial

Having a faster track at an event for charity where people, like me and others, only made it to this one event for the year is a good thing. Makes for a better watch from the fence. Hopefully UW made some good money.

Re: Adesa Results

Great job with the event guys. I had a blast and the course was fun. Seemed like they fixed timing issues fairly quickly when they came up.

Re: C6 Z06 Info

Kind of off topic, but C6 related and yall will find it funny: I was fighting the car all day at Adesa. It was doing weird crap and really pissing me off. After the 4th run, I had remembered how to Autocross again and settled down enough to realize that the car was intervening heavily with my inputs...

Re: Car Classification

I would like to run RS3s, but I would have to reconsider my tire sizes quite a bit. Their 18" sizes aren't quite right for my sizes and I don't want to run a square setup on my DD. Looking at the calculator, I could get close to the 18 tire's factory OD so we shall see. Need to kill these 460 tread ...
