Ok so its not like Dallas for the exception of all the Drama. Unless I can pay someone to OFF the cars of the following drivers - kevin nino, the san diego crew, richter, and anyone else who might be competitive this year J/K I dont want to hear anymore about this sponsored crap from here on out unless someone actually is and competes in one of the races. Now lets talk about my M06 and how dialed its gonna be BTW anyone have an alpine or s800 or Miata for rent or sell. Please advise........ Tom I am talking to you if you didnt get that.
I got you covered if you show this weekend, Sir, so's you can test and decide. Just wish I had an Alfa and an S800 for you to try too, so's you could tell me what you thought.

Granpa,
Aren't you upset that your vehicle probably was put back into the Kit form?
You were only "driving your line on the track" ?
See you next week for the race?
Rain predicted for Sat and Sun?

Three wide around the sweeper, fast approaching a mini, lead-foot hot on my tail... Someone is bound to get peeled like a banana.. Sorry. Lol. At least I (we) dodged the first two minis. Lol

That wasn't it at all. The other two Minis had the good sense to get the hell out of way. After next weekend I'll have to start to work on the FF03.

Default Cirtix Combos..

For any TCS GT1 hopefuls in the SanDiego area.. My LHS TotalControlHobbies has five (5) 17.5 Combos sitting on the shelf.. A lil more expensive than what you find at online shops, but hey they have em.. They had six.

Well, Osherman, I'm only 2 months in to this on-road racing career of mine, and I have never in all my setups I've tested on my 416, had my car push!

Saturday I was the understeer master, nothing I did made it any better. Maybe this Saturday I will have better luck...

This is my first TCS and I will try my hand at GT1 and Mini, the only chassis I have collected in the past few months. The mini should be funny, I've never driven it before hahahahaha.

So far, accuweather shows 70F on Sunday, that will be 18F warmer than it was last Saturday...that may help a lot!!!!
