Blackhawk one more time for me tomorrow Wednesday 9/21. @Vettel-ish nice chatting last time out. 🤟

Side note: probably getting a schroth quickfit or whole new seat set up next year but anyone got tips to stay planted with the stock belt and seat? Is there a way to lock the tensioner on the shoulder strap? Amazing core workout though 😂

See you tomorrow!
 
Lots of fun yesterday, thanks for snapping those pics @Vettel-ish

-Crushed my prior PR with a 1:22.9. In July my best was 1:24.xx. No change in car set up.

-Used HotLaps for the first time. For a free app I was very impressed! Cool to see other folks times after each session.

-Ran a few laps with advance track completely off until I did some pro bono grass trimming. The nanny absolutely is helping me more than hurting me overall right now. For the few times it may have annoyed me by cutting power, it was definitely helping me out imperceptibly other times. Rear just starting to get loose when putting down power out of a corner = immediate throttle back (but not off completely) and with AT on it's just a hiccup. With it off, same throttle adjustment doesn't do sh*t.

-confirmed my to do list for next year: proper harness, adjustable strut/shock mounts for more negative camber, and a portable gas can set up.

-still no overheating issues. All I've done is swap the rear diff fluid for royal purple.

I used to recline the seat back and give the shoulder belt a quick pull to engage the lock and tilt the seat back into position while holding the belt. If you keep tension it will stay locked. Also with power seats you can slide it back a little, lock the belt than motor it forward until it is pretty tight.
