  3. Congrats.... same here 🙂
  4. Kinda low on the power right? I figured nothing but at least 900 to the ground otherwise you'll be driving like a grandma

    86-88mph through the carousel is certainly cooking

    Disclaimer... I've had 1 event... so I"m a newb. But to me it looks like you did killer for having 6-7 events. I hope I can be where your at. For watching the videos of the fast guys you have some amazing power and some quick acceleration. I'd say your spot on, most I see are going full throttle earlier. I have the exact same power and weight as you do. I know for me at least it's a bit different because I'm on a 275 tire. I cant just drop the gas out of the hole like the n/a guys are doing. Do you feel the same on that? Learning to feather the throttle is what I'm working on. I'm just worried I'm giving it too much and then well you know. Great run man, love it! No video of your red group driver run?

    Of course. All truth. Especially when that mini cooper passed me lol. On the car thing well sorry I've been out of any form of motorsports for 14 years while I built my family so the car means alot to me because it allows me to be a driver. I'll leave it with that. Time to sign up for more track time

    Me either. I bought the car this year from my uncle who had 15 years of tracking and built it to where it is now. According to his statements it was just the dedicated track cars that were faster and he had no issues hanging with the vipers he encountered and it was the aero modded vettes that would pull away. He never ran against a gt350 since he was getting out of the sport ready for retirement age. Mind you he ran the car with Hoosiers or toyo RR/Ra1 275 sizes track tires and I’ve put a set of 200TW federal 255 tires to meet the street tire rule. All I can do now is progress toward getting the car back to what he can do. According to the spec of the car and lap times documented for similar and his statements it seems a 1:40 would be doable. Remember he had the rear seats and stock passenger seat in the car when I bought it. First thing I did was remove the rear and put the matching racing seat in the passenger side removing 52lbs right there. Car is basically full street trim plus roll bar. 3850lbs with driver

    Of course. Events are a lot fewer opportunities than keyboarding lol. One thing is for sure.... I’ll get there. Look out when I do

    Only seat time will tell... but never underestimate an older chassis done right! I’m sure there are tons of examples of older cars gapping the new stuff.
  13. Not rude when it comes to safety bro. Gotta get some seat time under my belt asap. Just replaced the pinion seal so now ready to throw driveshaft back in, put exhaust back together, fill trans, fire her up check for leaks, install oil cooler, finish boxing in radiator, put front end back together.... time to get signed back up for more event time.
  14. So you guys do a track day once a month? My cobra is currently under maintenance (in my garage) and I don't plan on having it race ready until thanksgiving. With only 1 HDPE event under my belt I don't feel it's such a great idea to attend with you guys until I get a bit more experienced. What do you guys suggest?
