With my own checklist in hand, tools, a cool head, a cool hood, and a good pit man to keep me grounded, I can always learn more, I win by learning, therefore, with that approach to the humbling race gods, I may have already won!:thumbs_u:

Our cars LOVE Lightning, Turn 1 is MUCH faster than you think! Be careful and make the tires HOWL at every corner!

Jim, thanks, 93F+ on Monday with showers, hopefully car will behave as it did on Thunderbolt! Ive been studying the track, very technical like Thunderbolt but shorter Nitto R555-IIs get nice and sticky. Car was neutral with a slight push, so I'll see how she handles and adjust sways and coil overs accordingly.

As bigjim said, every time I went through Turn 1, I was going a little faster each time. Start slow (relatively speaking) and work your way up.

Also- watch out for Turn 5! It's a blind right-hander over a crest, and if you don't have the line quite right going in, you'll come over the top and find the track out your right-side window! :doh:
(Hey, I only did it once, okay?) ;)

Fun track, have a good time!
