TxMC round 6 results @ Eagles Canyon
well it was a beautiful weekend at Eagles Canyon Raceway. slight breeze, 83deg. on saturday, mid 70's on sunday. unfrotunately for me it started bad and went downhill from there. it all started on the way to the track, i was following sixace and a little black cat ran across the street in front of me. lol
really i had some electrical issues and a loose alt. bolt had me thinking i had damaged internals. never even got a lap at speed or a chance to learn the track.
enough of my bitchin' sixace was taking it easy but still clickin' off some good laps. hustler had an issue with a small oil leak, but managed to fix it in good time. wags and quan were running fast and trouble free except for a couple header bolts that were replaced pretty easily. the big deal was checking out matt andrews time attack winning miata. even though he didn't have any seat time there, he managed to run some fast laps in the 2 sessions he ran before retiring with a cracked rotor. matt created quite a buzz!
oh yeah, matt drove hustlers car for a session until under braking in a fast corner, the throttle cable shifted forward onto the turbo/manifold, and made the throttle get stuck wide open! he was forced to go straight off the track at high speed, luckily, he found the only section off track without giant boulders. sixace was behind matt when he went off and mentioned seeing some dukes of hazzard action! luckily neither matt or hustlers car were damaged.

1st place: dan l. (sixace) 2:06.652 10pts.
