I WON I WON I WON !!!!!!! Today The car finally ran good the whole race. I qualifed 4 out of 22 cars
with a 1:34.2 time There were 2 GT3 cup porsche they wanted to start in the rear and a $175,000 C6-Z06 Vette ended up on the pole with me on the outside when the green dropped I got the jump on him and led through the first 7 seven turns he got by me on the back straight I dropped back throughout the race to around 7th overall not wanting to hurt the car I finished ahead of all the AIX and American Iron cars. which was my main goal. Yesterday it was wet during qualifing so I didn't go out I started 14th overall and 2nd in AIX I took the lead ( in AIX) going into the first turn then I led my class whole race then the car had a electrical issue and I limped three laps to the end finished 2nd
I got video coming from yesterday Today I forgot to turn the camera off after qualifying this AM. so the battery was dead

That's a fantastic result and I'd love to be there for the celebration. BTW, did you leave the rear camber alone or did you try something different?

The guy in the Challenge Mustang must be having nightmares of the pea-green #77 Challenger!!!

joelvan
08-05-2012, 08:16 PM
He is one tough sumbitch to pass he will take you the grass. if you cannot get by real quick. he is the reason I tried so hard in qualifying I knew If I started ahead of him I could turn faster laps and not have to risk the car to pass him

I was on the edge of my seat throught out the video as you pursued that Mustang! He was definatly feeling the pressure. You are one heck of a driver and know that course well!

I haven't changed my suspension setup any I have spent so much time trying address the heat soak and electrical gremlins

I have a feeling when you get the heat problems ironed out the gremlins will disappear too. Winning at RA is huge .... huge! That's all.

I will be opening up the lower grill this week . I hope that will let more air through the radiator to hopefully help that issue I wish someone would produce a Carbon fiber vented downforce hood like the Tiger racing hood that is available for the mustangs . I can test it for them if anyone ever does. I am seeing 300 deg oil temps with a cooler and I start backing off when the water temps get above 235.
