  1. Indeed! Glad you saved it bud. And yes, clearly your wife loves you very much. Also also, dude that's some awesome memory and drawing..and evidently you keep your tools really organized. I have to hunt every time I want to find a tool...i suck at organization
  2. How many folks here are attending? My previous PB was 1:22.9 and will be shooting for a 1 second gain. I'm going to have to dig deep for it, but the car has it...i can feel it
  3. Yep, saw that yesterday when picking up my car from Doghouse. More parking space for track days and guests get to be closer to the track too. I'm liking it a lot
  4. MSR-C 1.7 CWDate: 4/14/19Lap time: 1:27.13 (AIM Solo 2 DL)Car: 2012 Corvette C6 BaseTotal vehicle weight with driver: 3,700 ???Wheel horsepower: 450ish RWHPTire size and model: NT01 275/40R17 Front 305/35R18 RearEstimated ambient temperature: ~60 degrees? Don't remember New PB for CW direction. I really need some practice going this way. I was also practicing less shifting and trying to carry more speed, but I'm still chicken shit and wasn't pushing hard enough..the car has more time in it for sure.
  5. Just got confirmation for my seats. I'll be at Turn 15 in Section 3 Row 32. Should be a great view! Hope to see some of you there
  6. lol for real What's the story here?
  7. 1) Texas World Speedway - I LOVED the banking!! Got to some really get some high speeds. I wish I had more seat time there, but now it's gone 😞 2) Eagles Canyon - This track eats brakes and tires like nothing. Loved the back straight high speeds, and the elevation changes were awesome. Can't wait to get on after the updates! 3) MSR Cresson 3.1 - Big ole' long track with fun elevation on the 1.3 side. This big config skurred me first time I drove it. Nerves got the best of me and I got bumped back down to novice group for a couple more events lol 4) MSR Houston - This track is just so chill to me. Flat and easy. Just don't get too comfy when coming up towards the wall 5) MSR Cresson 1.7 - I have the most track time here. I'm always ready to get on it to try and find more time. Really hate driving here in the rain...so freaking slick 6) Texas Motor Speedway Infield - This is cool just because it's inside the oval. Too bad I only get the chance to drive on it with Lone Star Corvette Club once a year. There's probably other orgs that run there, but I haven't looked in to. 7) Harris Hill Raceway (H2R) - This is some bumpy bullshit right here, but it is definitely a lot of fun for champcar/lemons type wheel to wheel. I'd never drive my Vette there though...I don't think it would survive more than a few laps
  8. Yep, I ran the semi dry session on Saturday too. Better, but i was still chicken and didn't push too hard at all. I almost went back to the hotel after lunch on Saturday, but i changed my mind at the last minute and stuck it out. Glad I didn't get stuck in the mud anywhere at least!
  9. Crud! Car is out of commission this week, will have to catch the next one.
  10. Sunday was great ya'll !! Saturday, not so much. "Great opportunity to practice car control" they said. Hrmph!
  11. https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/time-trial-with-lone-star-grand-prix-at-cota-circuit-of-americas-scca-texas-245090?fbclid=IwAR38_bDMQAogjLi-PCuaNd-HS6ZfX2jxztTUkF_Ca50MkaT27R66ngw3mWw This will be my very first time to get to drive on COTA! Finally get to see what all the fuss is about 🙂
  12. https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecID=9026 It's actually a little more expensive at Pegasus. The link you posted was for the 135 cfm, not the 235 cfm Good advice though!
  13. This will be done and ready to use by next month. I think it's pretty cool that Cresson is getting some refresh. North Texas should be a hip track day place to be this year between this and ECR updates
  14. Are they? I just flipped my tires on the wheel...but I had heard they are directional. Good news if they are..one less thing to worry about
