Well, the guy who won was quite good. He toasted the rest of the field. The difference from 2nd to 5th (me) was 0.57 seconds. I think it was a course that punished torque starved cars. I probably should have considered downshifting into 1st in a few places, but that's not my favorite thing to do.


Rest In Peace
I'm out as well...lack of good sleep, 7 day weeks, and a car needs a paintjob bad....

If you guys see Neon Mike over there...tell him to head over to my house, and bring his gun...prolly wont spray til Monday...but it depends on how long it takes me to bondo one more fender... :ph34r:

i tried....

i've been in the garage over 14 hours now, minus a couple hour break to go to a baby shower for a friend...

what a bitch this brake swap is...

i'd say i'm about 1/3 of the way done.

the left-front is on and i put a wheel on it. damn it looks sick. for shits and giggles, i tried my 15's. yup, they clear. the finalspeeds have an arch in the spoke that perfect goes around the 4-piston :) so, thats a good sign. i can run 15's for some r-comps :) :) :)

bad news, is that, i won't be racing tomorrow. i'm beat tired, and the car is still in the air with no brakes on it :(

see ya guys around 2-ish... i'll swing by.

clayton, mike was with me most the day... he's doing the same thign i'm doing... sleeping in, going to say hi around 2... after that, i don't know.
My Hoosiers are toast. At least two of them, anyway. My first time was great, but after that it was like driving in the snow out there.

Maybe I'll switch to Azenis.

BTW, A girl won the Honda challenge!


Staff member
yeah, i heard... and for the short time i was there, i watched her stall the car while waiting in line. lol

oh well... i missed it...

i probably would have sneezed my way into the pits with a helmet full of gooo anyway :gross:

hopefully, i'll finish up the brakes this week, and get the head on, and the cams, and the pistons, and the header, and the management... damn, still got a lot to do on this thing.
