    Well, the day was pretty fun! Lots of cars, a couple of spins, a one REALLY close call....almost had a smashed mustang on the front straight!

    I'd like to say thanks for Paul M. & Nick L. for letting me ride along with them. I'd like to especially thank Joe for letting me take his car around for a couple of laps. FWD, street tires, and a notchy 3rd gear are things I'm not used to on AMP....which also contributed to my wide-turn on turn 2 and my subsequent slide on turn 3. But that car pulls I tells ya!

    And yea, i think they're backwards, but there wasn't any water on the track, so it doens't make a difference.

    When'd you take those vids? Musta been after me, 'cause I notice you downshifting on turn 7!!

    I have asked u to come to every solo event for the past 2+ months and each time you told me you weren't racing any more this season. Fair enough, but don't blame your no show on a smell coming from your car :rofl:

    Me not knowing shit about solo's would not know that, all I knew is it was laps around the track and anyone could go.. Something burning is enough to make me not wanna go (that and the fact I was hung over).. But i told you several nights ago, not knowing what that was, I wasnt going.. Sorry there "Mr Solo"..

    It was a fun day, I did so many laps, it was retarded, I was still out there after it started to get dark, had to turn on the headlights. I wrecked one of my race tires though, running the morning with no sway bar was not the smart thing to do, of well.
    The Formula car was fun as well, never tried one before, pretty quick little cars, 1:14's with 100hp, well its under 1000 pounds with me in it too....

    Sweet. I wish I could have made it just to watch.

    I'm getting more comfortable with the limits of my Teins now, where I can get away without rubbing and such. I'm starting to tear up street corners in a bit too unruly a fashion. Its probably a good thing they're coming off for the winter next week. :) Makes me itch for some more racing though. Arg. :)

    I'm guessing the odds aren't good that there'll be another one again this year, I've got a set of Kumhos to cook the remainder off of and even my winter ITR setup will be a vast improvement over what I was running last time I was there. :)

    if you wanted to go you would have went.. ie. you would have had someone look at your car, ask me about it, ask me or anyone else that was going about the day etc. no excuses. :P
