I'm nowhere near the fastest F103GT guy out there. Marty Hageman is light years better than me, and Paulie too. But I think I have a top 10 GT car.

Mini. Man, there are a TON of super fast Mini's out there! Hard to tell how many of them are running new out-of-the-box motors, but there seems to be no question that the lower power output means you gotta have awesome handling and lots of roll speed in order to hit the top ten. It's gonna be tough.

No streaming video, no laptop at the track, but will send you a couple text messages during the day, Gary.

Would it be politically correct for me to speculate on this years possible winners? No. That would be wrong.

I do predict this. Everyone will have a good time as we are trying something new and my mic skills will keep everyone entertained
Although if you wanted to send a secret ballot I would keep it hushed until the winner/winners is/are announced. . .

I am sure like usual everybody will have a great time and enjoy grrrrreat prizes!

The webcast is great but they are having internet connection problems. Great video and audio though when its working (95% of the time)!

I have a mini cooper m03L (FWD) that I just got oil filled shocks for. What is a good starting point for oil/springs.
Thanks
