March 24 - Post Event

Thanks all for the great second season and the exciting, friendly competition. I'll be trying to keep my wheels on going forward! Then back in December...at least that's the plan...

Dec 30th Goodbye 2017!

Oh, and I found a new excuse on my way home Saturday. I ran all of my runs with the AC turned on! Why was the AC on with such a cold morning in the first place, you ask? Well, this car is really bad about fogging up the windows. Keeping the AC on dehumidifies the air and clears them. I remembered t...

December 30 - FAST Classic @ Brooksville

OK...Philip is going to let me co-drive his Miata (Thanks Philip!). And it looks like I'll be able to drive up there with our remaining functional car/van. See y'all then! The Bluesight has been successfully, selectively and, hopefully, appropriately dismantled. Parts ordered and awaiting delivery.....

December 30 - FAST Classic @ Brooksville

It doesn't look good for the Bluesight. Disassembly is in process, but not without roadblocks. And parts haven't been ordered yet...need to know what to get first. I put myself down for the 30th, but no ride and no ride (for the race, and from Sarasota). Anybody coming up from this area? And anybody...

March 26 Classic Post

I feel like your inputs are just a little behind during ...(... most of the course). Definitely...good eye. I know the entry to the first slalom was notably messy...then behind for most of the rest...at least .1 to .2 sec. Only a couple of the slalom turns coming back were OK. I can see that the re...

March 26 Classic Post

I need to collect my Insight stats! Thanks for the great FAST second (winter) season for a departing Snowbird. Back to the great white north (WI) on Sunday. FAST has been particularly fun since I've had some nice folks to compete with (in class). But then, everyone has been nice...and thanks for tha...

Feb 11th aftermath

That WAS a fun course. Didn't do it fast enough to crush the Festiva this time...all those clean runs must mean gotta be pushing harder! There is this limitation of only being able to go all the way to the metal with the pedal on the Bluesight...got to fix that...but it keeps staying close (if you i...

Good eye on the first turnaround...I missed it, but it looked like the same problem...delay unwinding the wheel. I always forget the mantra in the heat of the race! There were also constant problems at the end of the second turnaround that showed in the other run videos.

Great "sea of cones" pictures! For me, what helped was: "Unwind the Wheel" -- Instructor Andy Canak "Smoother Transitions" -- Instructor Loren (well, at least I tried) "You can go FASTER in the slaloms" -- me "You don't need no stinkin' gearshift" -- Bluesight "RE71's last ~140 runs...what's to comp...
