You passed me at min 5:00 but then missed your shift on turn 5. I think I remember that because I gave you the point by then fell back in line with you going up the hill and was right on your bumper. You gave me a point by, LOL but I gave you a signal to keep going.

My car was not boosting well at that point and I was unlikely to stay in front for long if I had taken that point by. Thanks for the offer though😄

Actually you passed Gesso and EO2K in that session so you probably got footage of everyone from MT.net in D who was there on Saturday!
The car sounded like it was performing really well.

Were you able to keep up through the rest of the session or did I leave you?

Nice... I wanted to ask what kind of dog do you use for the sound effects and where do you placed it in the car? I've got a beagle, but it bays more than barks Ok, ok....I'm just jealous ya'll got FI and can pull harder.

If I remember, I think you steadily pulled away going up the hill once we came through turn 6.

Ya, I'm pretty sure that is the session I burst my coupler. I only made it part way through one session after sitting out the first one while Ian bled my brakes. I did another entire session at a max on 1psi before I found the problem and then my final session was just on waste gate pressure of about 6psi.

I ordered 2 replacement 4ply couplers and some metal zip ties to hold Geoff's heat shielding material in place. Hopefully that will put that issue to bed and then I can work on my temp problem at the 3/4 point of my sessions.

Sunday sessions:

One when someone wen't into the wall after turn 3




Getting stuck for a lap at a time without point by.






Taking girl from Mazda team for a more mellow run






Last session for Sunday - started slow, but then picked up my pace and had some nice laps. Fun at 8 minute mark.

​Turned in too early and then over-corrected. Decided to call it a day at that point.

For those who don't follow my build thread:

Miatas at MRLS was epic.

Day one traffic:




Um, yeah... My cousin wouldn't exactly pass the broomstick test. Put the hardtop on for day 2.





They did a new angle from the top of the corkscrew and I love it.




Exo!



First session on the second day, this random guy asked to ride with me. At the end of the session, he said "Well, you did your job of scaring the **** outta me."



Giving the KMiata a point by! I loved giving it the point by and hearing that K rev past. I really wanted to chase him more, but he'd always come up on me when we were up on traffic and he was far more effective at cutting through traffic than I was.


Some serious SQUISH through Turn 6:


Trying to run away from Taxi:







Absolutely love this one:


Dad was having fun.






Also, funny story... On day two, after my first session, my cousin asked to borrow my floor jack so he could look at his sway bar connection on his Civic. I couldn't find it at first, then I remembered where I'd left it:




Those scooters are damned heavy. I'm lucky nothing bounced around too bad on that first session on track. I didn't hear a thing back there.
