  1. https://www.circuitstudies.com I've done the above for COTA and thought it was helpful. I've done the speed secrets one for Indy and thought it was helpful as well (but very, very long, very detailed though). The Circuit Studies series is a little shorter / easier to digest based on what I have seen. I like the post-series study materials too (the takeaway / quick review notes). My last race at COTA, Johan Schwartz (he and Mike Skeen do the Circuit Studies series) was the driver coach for one of my team mates.
  2. Tomorrow / Tuesday night: Cigars n Racecars at Tap In on Main St in Grapevine (July 23). Come awwwwwwn! @Clay @dunhamr1 @CBraden @BRZ4Science @Ukrbmw
  3. Alright - after seeing the reveal and all the detailed info.....WOW!!!! The want is VERY strong....
  4. I figure we (as in my wife) will get one (2nd year), it looks great!!
  5. That’s always the challenge, right?! And part of the reason I’m always on a plane (boarding for ORD In 30...). We have 5 regions of the USA (SW, SE, NE, MW and West) with both local/regional content along with national/international content...manufacturing technology is a vibrant and fascinating industry!! We print and mail over 100k every month...tabloid size. It’s my Grandfather’s “fault!” We are truly blessed. I’ve been in the industry for 24 years. Check out our digital editions at www.mfgnewsweb.com if you’re interested in it.
  6. That is AWESOME!! The bit about the 3 yr warranty/track use!!!
  7. If you're upside down, then it's probably ok....LOL.....
  8. LOL....butt seriously....it's a LOT to read....we publish 5 manufacturing technology magazines a month (not kidding about that....).....
  9. It puts the lotion on....or it gets the hose again.... LOL I'm more burly than surly....but Matt, well, he's a malcontent.....LOL
  10. It's too flat for you....and you'd probably break the track record anyway....you know....for driving your Uncle Daddy's car....right? <----- lighten up Francis, that's a joke! LOL! 😂
  11. Tires cold....no fun.....go fast and then.....Tires hot...stuff happens....slip angle....angle of the dangle....hit throttle....wheeeee!!!!! Tread fly off.....marbles....don't plan in marbles.....marbles bad.....tires hot.....good stuff.....
  12. American Wagyu Strip last night...so good....
  13. Welcome to TrackJunkies....the Darkside...LOL!! Sebring is flat as a pancake....but bumpier than the cellulite on the proverbial fat lady that sings "shows over"....LOL...even still....I LOVE Sebring...walls everywhere...bouncy bouncy....and T17 - under the bridge...I remember the first few times through it....WOW! I was at the top end of 2nd....all the wheel hop and top end of RPM....the steering wheel almost was ripped out of my hand (as I was shifting)....so, much better to short shift and power through in 3rd...lots of torque...really smooths things out! And now I've got T17 down...that's my favorite passing zone! It's a place where a lot of bad ju ju happens though....I remember seeing two of my fellow competitors smack into the wall at the same time there right in front of me....crazy stuff!! The fun starts at the 6:00 mark....yes, it's rough....
