I can accept a smaller margin of victory. A win is a win! :P
Someone didn't pick up on The Prof getting new wheels and tires and bumpstops and caster and motor bracket and align and even going to check his tire pressure maybe? :lol:
It's a slippery slope in LP (low power) Molested Class. It's like watching Texas Hold em'. You guys see and raise together every event. Where will it all end? :dunno:

I'm waiting for him to add the turbo. Lights out!
edit: that would bump him out of m4, so maybe next season

Don't hold your breath. He hasn't even indexed his 3 spark plugs yet or removed the intake silencer or advanced the timing with some better gas. He sees your bet and will raise you. Someone will eventually go "all in". :snicker:

:wise:

BTW Soraya has been very quiet. Maybe she will get Ice Cream withdrawal soon? Or dedicate her car for racing only? :binky: Time will tell. :snore:

Hey, now! Don't be messin' with my poker face!

Actually, the caster mod isn't done yet, just planned. And the torque strut bracket is still in pieces in the garage.

Hard to say. We've got a pretty loose rule set to play in!

Would bump me all the way up to M2, unfortunately. I'd better have EVERYTHING else fully dialed in, and the fenders flared to fit 225's before I even think about that! (pro-tip: Drew's Miata is eligible to run in M2)

I've been running 91 octane for many months in an effort to get the ECU to learn in the hopes that it might advance the timing accordingly. Probably doesn't help, but at least I know it's not learning to RETARD the timing due to low octane fuel. And I'm only burning maybe 8 gallons in a week, so an extra 30 cents per gallon is no big deal.
BTW Soraya has been very quiet. Maybe she will get Ice Cream withdrawal soon? Or dedicate her car for racing only? Time will tell.
She's the one to watch! Just spent a bunch of money having her ECU dyno tuned for more torques. My car doesn't even have any torques. :tears:

Looking forward to Sunday!

Hey! Late registration is open until 8pm Wednesday, and we're waiving the late fee this time. Rattle some cages, bring a friend!

Mike D is showing up in a "covered" Porsche against Drew in his "naked" Miata. Who can resist that?

I'll never get used to seeing Dassatti and Porsche on the same line. :headscratch:

I’m lucky I know how to spell Porsche. Now I have to figure out how to load the helmet and numbers into it without the Cobra getting suspicious.
