And another question, the tv / web footage of the meeting looks amazing, you guys are really lucky to have that. From the coverage the weekend looked liked a lot of fun, with the different classes and spread over so many days. Was it a great trip on and off the track?
Thanks!
Anywhere from .5 to as much as 5 psi depending on conditions, race strategy, weather, etc.
You will understand if I don't share actual data for nationals

I flew out, Tom drove the rig. Great people, great track, beautiful countryside, decent weather. We had some issues with the car that we worked through. There were several times when we thought we weren't going to have a properly functioning car for Sunday. Tom and I just put our heads down, worked through each issue, collected data and stayed focused on the win.

It was awesome watching twitter and facebook updates all weekend! You were really throwing the car around, as usual, and putting the times down. Congrats!

I'm just going to leave this here......

I think I met that yellow Disgustang driver at a truck-stop one night.

Congratulations on the win. It was a good week at Mid-O. Not to much rain for a change.

Time to update your signature photo!

Also, when can I order that front air dam/splitter combo, that hardtop, and that rear wing setup from your website?

Air dam - Home Depot Motorsports
Splitter - 1/2" Birch
Wing mounts - fabbed from scrap aluminum in shop and orphan ricer Integra shock tower brace
Foil - APR 2D protoype. Not in production yet. We will have an application but I haven't decided where it will mount to.
Hardtop- generic FRP faux carbon hardtop similar to Chaser Aero

IOW, nothing fancy.

Yah, the sig pic is overdue for an update

The logic was infallible. Next best thing is dry carbon then Tegris a step above that. Everything else is problem waiting to happen.

To show how low Emilio's dick swings, that was the lap before the white flag where mortal drivers with that lead would have been ******* to preserve P1 and mortal cars would have been all used up.

Just curious, did you run those 205s on a 9 inch wide wheel? I've been debating about trying a 205 R6/A6, but don't have the points to run a 225, and currently have 9 inch 6ULs. Not sure if that is confidential info

Speed News Vol. 1 Issue 9 October

I didn't know anyone got a picture of this. Just published today.

Pass for the lead in the PTC race. I think the RSX was preoccupied with getting past the RX7 on the exit of keyhole without losing any momentum and didn't expect me there initially. After the first contact though, the RSX came back into me as he fought for the spot. By that time I had two in the grass on my left side tires on the kerb, not even on the pavement, with my nose just ahead. We drag race into China Beach where he gets a nose ahead. I outbrake the RSX and make a pass on the outside where we again, have light contact with him on the apex, me running just wide enough to give him pavement. Got clear as we entered the trees and opened the gap. Very hard racing.

There is a picture of the race on page 134 of December's Grassroots Motorsports.

"Emilio Cervantes of 949 Racing earned first in PTC along with a track record for the class: 1:36.432"
