  1. Nice lap Sam! Total no drama lap (start of next lap OTOH . . .🤣 ). You’re starting to make it look a lot easier than it really is. I got a handful of high 1.23 laps yesterday, but never could get into the lower half. Good to see you and Joe powering thru.

    That I'll do sometimes, just not regularly. What I really don't want is something like the ApexPro real-time LED display. To me that just sucks you into the right now. And if my thinking isn't ahead of my driving, then my reactions will be behind my grip and I'm toast.

    I tend not to notice much on the timer while I'm driving. I'm afraid I'll get sucked into driving consciously in the here and now versus thinking/looking ahead and letting my subconscious mind get me there.

    Goals 2020

    Made the move last year to finally drive a track other than MSRC and had a blast at ECR. Shifting experience and skills to another track was easier than I thought it'd be, so hopefully we'll get out and hit Hallet and/or COTA too this year. While my times haven't been getting that much better, I have been getting easier on consumables and I'd like to keep building on that habit. Didn't get as many events under my belt in 2019 as I'd hoped due to work schedule and life getting in the way. Definitely hope to improve on number of events this year. Big thing this year is to get into data. Bought and started collecting data last year with an AIM2, but still haven't gotten around to learning the software and doing anything with it. Now I've got several hundred laps on it, but some were me in my car and some were my wife in hers. First thing I'm going to have to do is weed through and separate those or they're useless to both of us.
  5. I’ve always wondered about the use of something like the off-road tire deflators to maintain a constant pressure as the tire heats. That way you could start at your target pressure and keep it there for the whole session regardless of heat buildup since the excess would vent itself off. https://www.trailheaddeflators.com/product.html
  6. Signed up now, see y’all there.
  7. Probably since we didn't track at all in November or December. I need it bad!
  8. Unmarried SCT X4 Device with 3 custom tunes by 5 Star Tuning. Right now I have custom tunes loaded for a 2011 - 2016 Ford Superduty 6.2L V8. Tunes included are: • 91 Octane Performance • 89 Octane Daily / Tow • 91 Octane Daily / Tow Worked great on my 2012 F250 SD, but I'm selling the truck and now have no use for the tuner. Truck was returned to stock program, so this device is now unmarried and available to tune another vehicle. Tuner can also be used for many other makes and models, see https://www.sctflash.com/Products/unfiltered-product/sct/SCTX4/sct-x4-performance-programmer for details, you'll just need to buy the tune files. New cost is ~$450 shipped; asking $275 OBO for TJ'ers
  9. The best thing was, Yellow and White run groups usually went out with only 6-7 cars per session all weekend. If Green and Blue groups, but we had lots of open track for our sessions.
  10. I can’t make out what you said at the :39 second mark
  11. Like Brad, my car likes the left side. When I drift out to mid-track for 5, it's putting more side load on than my car's semi-trailing arm rear suspension can handle since both camber and toe change when it unloads. Tight inside minimizes the side load, but it does make the turn sharper. Going to play with different suspension settings next time to see if I can help myself some. I've been running it very loose so far as I learn the new track, and can probably crank up the compression and rebound quite a bit with the smooth surface there.
  12. That’s pretty much my normal line into T13 now. If I try to get over parallel to the track I’ve still got side load at beginning of braking and my car wants to swap ends. So my visual target is the end of the curb and I brake in a straight line diagonally across the track towards that. Makes the turn sharper, but I can trail brake most of the way to mid loop and full throttle from there to T14.
  13. Walked the Italian canyon Saturday evening and it’s going to be a beast. All paving is done and most of the curbing. Brad said if the weather co to use to cooperate, they hope to be running it sometime next month.
  14. I was wondering where you went. 🤣 good job keeping the shiny side up
