Yes, 6-7pm start time. Come on out COOP even if you miss one heat. We'll be at the track around 1 for practice.

Had a great time racing last night. There were some tight battles in 17.5 as Bapiste had B.Fong on his bumper all night long. Thanks you all the racers that came out, and Bob for his usual track prep ritual.

Congrats Felix for doing awesome this weekend, we will be cheering for you at the worlds next year.

Felix made it up to the Semi-Finals, and was within seconds of finishing with a good enough time to bump up into the Final. There's a video of Felix and Jason I need to upload once I get some other information posted.
Felix missed the A final by a mere 11 seconds. Possibly better pit strategy would've allowed him to punch into the top 10.

The end of the A final was fantastic. Both leaders pitted on the same lap and battled til the end.

For Brian and Bob (and Dave?), here is my setup sheet from the club race. It didn't save the note where I explained how I swapped the L1 and L2 camber link holders to the opposite side of the car, where it creates a long/medium height link.

TJ, no 1.5mm shims on the front arm mounts?

My car was pretty good. Stilll needs a little more turn in coming in off the straight. Think I'll try standing up the rear shocks one hole or thicker front shock oil next time I'm out there. Did you get to see lap times from the main? Curious to see how Dave and my times were.

Oops. Yeah, I've got the stock front shims. I fixed the sheet. I haven't seen lap times, maybe Tim can upload the results if he is feeling generous.

I think you should try the camber link setup I was running. It had good turn in, and I think if anything you had more droop than I did in the rear. The 3mm over ride height on the setup sheet was a guess, now that I think of it I don't think it was any more than 2mm.

I'll go... really up to Tim and Bob to decide. Haven't heard a yes or no yet.
