After cone-ing away all my fastests runs for 2 events in a row, a couple "code brown" moments on my first two runs Saturday, I made the choice to dial things back, in hindsight maybe not the best decision, but oh well. 9/10ths will only get you 5th place in this crowd I guess..
You are most certainly dealing with a tough group.

I don't ever recall seeing Elliot come out for a morning session, even in the summer. And there's no setup secrets in this article, but you can see more of the car: https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/artic ... t-perfect/

I think Elliot registered after the Late Session was full.

Here's my fastest. Also looking for feedback, obviously the squirmy part after the turn around was not good but if anything else call em out!
We tend to have very similar lines most times. One thing I tried on the last 2 runs was to get as far over to the right side of the gate after the turn around and went a tiny bit wide to smooth out the arc going into the first slalom which let me go through that section much more settled. May have helped you out too. The rest of that run looks pretty damn similar to mine.

Ah good idea, never even thought about that part.

By far one of my favorites. I don't know if the course was just right for my driving style and my car, but I finished MUCH better than prior events. Maybe everyone had an off day...lol

Video of my fastest run (37.229). Ignore the data graphs. They aren't synced.

Don't you just love the tight competition? I like the new points structure because of it.

Taylor I'm coming for you! Bring on your new rubber...

Matt don't even think about it I see you...

I wasn’t either. I started at at 39.xx but couldn’t really move the needle. I improved sections each runbut I guess I was able to put it all together at the end.

Very happy. Unfortunately I probably won’t be able to remember it all to put it together again. Lol

I thought I was going to have to miss the next one, but you all can't be that lucky... Now I just need to up my game, I'm even running in the afternoon so I know what time I have to beat. ;-)
