Alternate weather tires ready. We probably won't leave till later tomorrow night than planned. I'm waiting on the big brown truck to bring me my springs. Hopefully will be there when I get home tomorrow. Would rather put them on in a heated lit garage than a cold dark parking lot Friday morning. Sleeps overrated anyhow. Lemonade and cherry pie loaded in the cooler :)

Maybe JY shouldn't worry about first gear. Just take that sucker out! Good driving!

After driving with Andrew, I have no idea how I'll ever be on that level. Dude is a madman. Learned a lot about data from him. Edit: I did go ahead and bite the bullet on the shifting crap though, to which I owe a huge part of my suckage. Pallotta went 1>2>3>2>3>2>3>2>3 on his fast Saturday run. I tried it and I suck. I ended up with 1>2>3>2>3>2>3 on my fast one. After looking at data, it's obviously necessary and it's gotta be pefect.

The car feels incredible though. Finally found the asphalt settings. Great courses.

Too you're to post much now. Got in at midnight... Thanks to bikers and spring breakers all coming home at once. That was a flipping nightmare.

Thanks to just and the big trailer for the hospitality and free air. Lol.
Finished where I always do but still have a blast. Great courses if you didn't need to shift much (or at all) and thanks to Sam's car puking trans fluid, I got a co driver to push me on Sunday. Don't care I got cones, but I was finally pushing myself to throw the car around

go pedal wasnt a problem.. utilizing the said pedal.. was.

I learned 2 BIG things in CAM this weekend.
1. BFGs heat cycle out.. at appx 90-100 plus runs (mine have nearly 180 runs.) TURRBLE GRIP !

2. NOT having a co-driver... is self destructing. when everybody was on cold tires.. I was in the top 3-4.. but the warmer tires dropped me with every run. :(

but.. its all good. I have new tires and 12 in rims waiting for the next big event.

180 runs on a big ole car can definitely point to some heat-cycled tires. Let me know if ever want a tire warmer at tours, James said your car was a riot, something like steering a big boat with your right foot or some such. :lol:
