WOW.....that was pretty aggressive considering everyone has to report to regular jobs come monday AM. I recognize that mustang from somewhere. Does he normally run with you guys (I watch all your videos)? Maybe I've seen him running with mid-atlantic???

I know you said you couldn't but I hope you find a way to make it to VIR in 2 weeks!!!

That was Roddy Sterling, He has money backing him so fixing his car is not a issue. He has raced the Conti Challenge and will be racing in the K&N NASCAR series 2014
Sorry I wont make it to VIR Right now I'm broke. I am waiting on some possible sponsorship money to race the Trans- Am race in TA-3 in Nov . so all my racing is on hold until then.

Figures he doesn't have to fix his car. The car I bought already had minor body damage and has been "marked" again last time out. Both pass the 50/50 rule with ease but I wish I could fix them. I was lucky to be able to work out some trading to offset most of my entry fees.....otherwise racing would be even harder to justify/afford.


BTW: What happened to the "police car"? I thought you built the Challenger from a wrecked car and BIW. Love to see someone running that car again.

He deserved a love tap from you, but I understand that it hurts to tear up your own car in the process.

If the circumstances were reversed you would probably of had his entire crew after you. You mind sharing your engine combo? I'm building an engine right now that will get road raced too. Any do and donts?

I doubt it was on purpose but it's still contact. I've seen all your videos and want to know if anyone ever out brakes you coming down that hill. He must be from Narnia or some place similar thinking he could pull it off.

Ive had a Pro that caught me snoozing there one time. Ive been told more than once. that I was the bravest sumbitch they ever seen, or the stupidest.

Thin line between brave and stupid......last month I was spun at the start of a race in the rain but got out of the grass and back on track (in 8th/last). 2 laps to go I'm passing for the lead under braking but went a little too deep. Told the crew hooking me up I had never seen the track from THAT side of the gravel trap before! :(

I late brake/still braking till the apex often. Heck, no one told me what could and couldn't be done so I'm often braking and on the gas at the same time. One of the few advantages to an automatic. Well, until the computers go WTF IS GOING ON and stop the fun. You've got to find a big time sponsor cause you drive like it's your last race ... every race.

Man I really need to get down and run that track.

Joel,
On the first couple laps I thought I heard hints of brief wheel lock-up. Either fast enough to be anti-lock or your real good managing that. CMC does not allow anti-lock brakes (my biggest challenge) but does AIX? I think I remember seeing that they are allowed.

joelvan

Anti-lock is allowed , but I have to disable the stability control.

Have you driven much with stability control? I did the hold 10 second thing trying to disable mine when I ran the Charger....damn thing wouldn't let me 4-wheel drift the car. Was a blast without it!!!
