You cant win if you don't finish...I hope he learned a lesson there.Well that was a fun sunday at the track. No trophies but some great racing and a new PB.
Quallys went great! Fixing the timing chain really helped smooth out the knock problem and the car was fast.

I bungled a yellow flag restart with a baulky shifter that locked me out of fourth for some reason. Have too work on my starts/restarts .
My previous best was 1:10.1 so it was a 1.3 second drop. Happy with that!!
Oddly enough the first sessions were with well used Dunlops that I gave a wd40 treatment too. The last was with Hoosiers and the best lap times were all within a few tenths. Was a total idiot and left my cell camera on the wrong settings so I just recorded my left eye instead of the track infront.
Will see if any of the live streaming we had caught some of the action. Going to have to get in shape, the last race of the day was only 20min but it left me walking like a old man.
Was too cold for the track girls!! was surprised at the lap times considering it was about 50 degrees F.
First race I was 2nd in category till I bungled it. Which left me far behind for the second race. Managed to get third in that one at least. Was a great race with 5 cars battling it out and changing positions.
This was on the short setup for this track, which benefits the gt4's. They seem to be really worried about the Boss for the next race on the long version.
Oh!! the nitrous mustang with 570 rwhp blew up... Car switched from its AED tune to a local one, gained 20hp and promptly threw a rod out the side.
Just make sure you're far enough ahead that it's not an issue.Have my next official race on the 7th of August. Mean time I got invited to run at small track with a new group this weekend. Seems a bit hairy as they do not have much safety requirements, its mainly a Chevy crowd and they want a Ford to pick on.
