Ok. Miatas @ Hallet will be here before you know it. We can have a shootout on Friday. Since everyone like to whine about the unfair hoho advantage. I'll run one 3 flying laps and you run 3. Then we swap tires w/each other. Run 3 more. Fastest single lap wins. Prize TBD, but likely will involve public humiliation at the very least..

I spend some time with you and your new toy. Predictive = actual session. "Theoretical" is what you are referring to. Comparing our data between sessions "will" make you faster (but it makes me faster too).

I thought my car being on this site was ironical too, but they do have a section for us "misguided souls".

BTW, my best at the MSR-C 1.7 is 1:24.xxx so ya got about 5 seconds of traffic and "wrong gear" to clear up. On the 3.1 I got smoked cause I got my panties tangled up around my ankles making it hard to heel-toe. Nothing to do with my first time with the new 6sp/3.63 combo (talk about wrong gear). But it's awesomeness is not to be denied and I'll be looking for a 1:24 at Hallet this year.

Going to TWS? I'm still on the fence, but a supercharger throwdown might be the deciding factor.

In the interest of full disclosure, Johnwag also drives my car faster than I do. I'll give up a session to him just to collect the data.

i'm still unemployed and haven't payed for hallett yet or ben really able to get to the track for testing, only was able to do msr as a co-driver. i'll just let john take my car you hallett and he can hot lap the 2 car . i would take up your tire offer but i don't want to ever use hoosiers as i will be sucked in to black hole of tires that cost more then i can afford. as it is i think the tires on your car are the normalizer to my power.

you might even be able to beat me in my own car as it is.

He He. No worries Jeff, it's not like I have a car to campaign at the moment anyways. And to top that off, some A-hole stole my truck over the weekend... so there went the tow rig.

I loaned it to Jenny to help her move back to Texas. It was in Denver, Co.
A-holes left her and my kids stranded in downtown Denver on a Friday night.
It's just a vehicle and can be replaced... just glad everyone is alright.
