Time for a clock update, Ryan. I'm trying to learn a new car right now. Hope to have it ready.

Update Ryan 2, Clete 0 You can ask Clete

Good driving... no doubt...I wish I had put the larger tank on mine and all the carbon parts.. but hey, not bad for a stock car.... If I would not have boned out in the second race... well lets just say, it would have been super close.. and Holt would have been in the mix; if not won the race.. he had a good car!

You know it is all fun, alittle smack talk, biatch slappin. We will keep pushing each other to be better. The whole TZ GT8 crew will bring their "A" game for the TZGP.

PS. I did pull that comment fifteen minutes later, ill leave that to our face to knees conversations.

Shouldn't be a problem with the right front diff oil. I read my good friends set up info slightly off by putting in 300k instead of 30k. Should fix me good eh !!

I love this class. Speeds good and matches my ancient brain really well. Think my driving improved a bunch with the F1 winter. Wheel to wheel makes for shit or bust and I certainly stopped busting up my equipment as time went by. Such that a nice bit of nose to tail for a few laps is pretty damm thrilling !!

Great looking paint job on Jacko's new GT........

If Jacko is shredding like that, have you guys teched him to see if he's put a 'drift box' in there...........sounds like he's loving that GT action.

Being quite well known for taking my equipment beyond the limit (!!), I gotta say the DM1 is one mighty tough chunk o' fun. I tried really hard to find a breaking point and failed.

So, along with the too heavy front diff oil, I think yellow springs up front are too stiff, causing the car to push like crazy but with the incredible traction available from the Sweep 50s, that's why I chewed thru tyres like no tomorrow (tomorrow).........

Also thing making the back end a little tighter could help rotation as I was having to haul like hell on the steering to make it turn.

By the time the TZGP get here, I should have a car fit for total destruction thru time warpage !!

Jacko
