sage advice warning:

only a tool would worry that he couldn't get FTD because someone of serious reputation and skill was coming and going to steal it away from them. and only a tool would let the opportunity to get even 5 minutes of wisdom from aforementioned someone of serious reputation and skill slip by.

you want FTD? help emilio in the pits. cup his nuts. be awesome.

then go home and take a shower and see how brown the water is with the skills he's been soiling you with all day.

It's not about "FTD", it's about running a respectable time that doesn't score me ridicule. I'm tired of the idea that I shoudl be four seconds or faster on every single track I run. I'm not entirely certain that I am less than decent on the track, but I have target times and I'm not hitting them. I don't even know if the car will run those times, but I think it should be competitive in it's class. If people show up and start running the same times as me, with half the power...I'm not sure I'll keep this car or hobby much longer.

On a related note, I'm missing turbo parts and my BEGi reroute flange doesn't fit. It hits the trans and the the CLT sensor either hits the CAS or the water-nipple thing. Frustration is ultra-high.

See, there's an easy answer to that Hustler.

Ask Emilio, "Dude! Drive my car for a lap!"

If he really is as much faster than you as you think, you'll learn **** tons - and become a much faster driver as a result.

Or, if you are really stressing and drama whoring it this much? Stop racing. Or at least go into a lower class where this isn't such a huge deal from you. What I've gathered from you is this is a bunch of stress and drama, not fun anymore - if it's not fun, don't do it.

I almost suggested that but realistically, emilio is there to do his job and probably can't give up time to teach everyone. I'm sure he'd love to (we all love hustler), but I doubt he has time.

I don't need anyone to drive the car, I just need to cut multiple seconds off each lap.

Hey, it's worth a shot.

Rather than cut multiple seconds off each lap, why not try to have as much fun as you can each lap?

Seriously bro, it seems like you are over-stressing it. I wouldn't want 10-foot near any hobby I have if it gave me as much stress as you seem to be getting from this. Perhaps you need to go to a different class or something?

Random observation:

The Grand Canyon is absolutely saturated with fit, attractive, athletic, outdoorsy-type young women who are scantily clad in hiking attire. Many are French or German. I'm not sure if there's a scientific term for this demographic phenomenon, but it's truly staggering.

Unfortunately, every single one of them is there with their husband / boyfriend / parents.

Finally got Forza 4. Very good game. At first, I thought it was waaaayyyy to easy. Then I found the buttons to turn off traction, stability, abs, and get the realistic steering/manual transmission. Now it's fun.

**** BF3! I'm sick of playing against shitty players, and sore losers who ******* kick you when you are MVP against their squad/clan. I was MVP and circled around and got their flank and the kicked me for spawn killing. ******* bullshit. 64 player Rush, it's tough to get MVP. I'm done.

Does anyone else take hobbies way too seriously?

I can't go to the racetrack in the car because I'm not fast enough.
Can't go to the gun range because I don't shoot worth a ****.
Can't go to the gym because I'm a pathetic, weak ------ who basically isn't a man.
Can't play Forza because 12-year olds beat my ***.
Can't make sex with women because I've been poz-raped too many times.

How do I learn to lighten-up?

Crystal Meth.

You do know you will not get better at any of those things unless you do them right?
