Looking at the map it looks simple at first but I think that's deceptive... There are a couple of places where taking a much wider line will set you up for way better exits. Station 3 on the way out and the way back, then again at station 6.

Hopefully I can remember that while bouncing off the rev limiter and sawing at the wheel :)

I'm hoping Mike replaced "both" front hubs on the torque munster with spats.
So maybe we can have 5 runs again!! That would be awesome. It doesn't get dark until after 6pm now so no problem packing up!!

There are some really cool matchups in every class this time. Start wiggling and hula your fanny to be fast on this sweet course.

Memo to self: "Do not show up before 12:35PM."

While we are talking trash I had to check and see if Cliff Bordwell registered. He shamed all of us in M2 at the last event and we're lucky he is giving us a break from school this weekend.

Hah, yes. Well the good news is the clutch didn't slip on a sixth gear pull during my trip to Mexico, after the event, but it still stinks like fried clutch.

Well that's a plus that you didn't kill it then. No more 2nd gear launches for you. Lol

There's a place for all this post-event chit-chat. It's right here.

The "Push Harder, Suck Less" philosophy explained:
Push Harder - Drive as close to the limit of your tires as possible.
Suck Less - Drive something resembling a proper racing line.
