Humorous mistake of the day:

Me thinking Andrew Stach forgot to change his numbers, when in fact he was riding as a passenger with his co driver in the Elise (right hand drive). In my defense, he was sitting in the driver's side of the car :fight: :lol:

Sound notes from heat 1:
Marcus needs a new muffler on the Miata
The white Lotus was on the limit of sound every run... I strongly suggest a little work there.
The turbo MR2 could use some help with the waste gate noise
All were STM cars.

Thanks for everyone's help and patience today with the event. We are still working on equipment improvements but I think many of the issues today were human error.

Special thanks to the Chattanooga crew for helping me load the cones in the van.

I heard the Lotus about halfway up the main hall inside of PSCC headed to the bathroom. That one will def need to be fixxored before running again.

The apartments are even closer.

Parhaps we should volunteer to buy and plant some trees. Kind of/not really joking.

I had a great time. My positives were that I was able get a clean run when it counted and that I was able to find some pace on my 5th run.

Makes me really want to buy a car.

Had a great time. I can't find the results, am I missing something? I made some of those auger inserts for my tailpipes like Jim did with his Cobra. They work extremely well. I will make a few more in different sizes so if people are over sound they can try them out and hopefully not have to stop running.
