Oh Oh!!! Watch out for Tom! His beast is all set up now! Good stuff.

I should be there. I'll run as long as I get my sway bar issue resolved by Sunday morning.

I'll be there as usual to film, but this time I may drive if the Volvo comes back in time. Can't wait to get the slowest time

I'll be there again, sporting the R-comps again

Tom, it looks like you and I and the only two running in the Street Modified PAX class....

I can't wait to see your car perform with all the suspension mods. First you had over 100hp on me, now you're blurring my suspension advantage, what's next, R-comps as well? I'm screwed.

Damn, I wish I had $6500, I'd be all over that e36 M3 Evo engine in the for sale section.

Well, the tranny is finally in. The only thing left is the exhaust and the oil sump. August sounds very possible.

Lots of fun and a blast to drive this time around... great event and amazing course layout.

My times were getting more and more consistent.. the first 3 runs I got 1:01 with one clean run and the last two 1:02.

With the last one plowing through 6 pilons with MarkD

hehe... we're getting killed by all those r-compounds... maybe next year Have to smooth out my runs too first though.

crusher - do you run in 1st or 2nd gear? All my runs were in 1st but I'm thinking that if I shift to 2nd I can go smoother... next time we'll see.

Tom, what is your final drive ratio??

I have no idea how you guys can do the slalom in 1st without laying on the rev limiter.

I shift into second coming around the first cone, and shift back into 1st when I'm about parallel with the 400.

Tom, Nelson.. I did all of my runs in 1st gear. Most of the time it's 3/6500 very near the rev limit but I didn't hit it.

Yup, i'm contemplating now on getting some r-compond for my stock rims next year

runs?

I found this layout to be on the tight side. Still loved the cris-cross design near the end. Personally, I was a big let down this time. Even though I took care of my sway bar issue. I had high hopes!!! I don't know what it was......can think of a number of excuses. Probably driver 95% of problem! But all in all, still a fun time out.

I only managed to post 3 timed runs! DNF'd on the practice and last one - where I was planning on running slower and hopefully smoother. yeah that didn't work out for me! ha. 103+1 cone was my best. Terrible!

Nelson - Fast! Simple. car is SOLID.

Tom - car handles noticeably better than before. still a tad on the 'loud' side though!! haha.

I throw it in 2nd coming up to the 2nd cone in the slalom.

I'm nowhere near ready for R-compounds..

note - Tom - I helped clean up afterwards and picked up the pylons. That one you took out at the end and drove to Wonderland was all CHEWED up! haha. Think you owe the club a new one....jk!
