I am now a 'maybe' due to my busted piston problem. I think I may be able to make it but I will be cutting it pretty close so I'm cancelling my registration just in case. When I know the car will be ready to go I'll sign up if there are still spots left.

Well that's what I get for waiting too long to sign up for the event. Also, for some reason I am still blue non-solo, so I need to figure out WTF is going on with that. I am a complete novice, but I am a blue solo novice damn it!

haha, i'm glad you feel that way. gotta keep upgrading constantly. everybody's gettin' vband setup's, and ls1 swaps, running 20 psi! i'm gonna have some 949 endlinks, nt-01's and run 10psi (215whp) instead of the usual 8-9psi (9psi = 201whp) @ hhr. then by tws event i'll have my ultrashield seat, harness, and harness bar installed, pull the power steering, remove rear half exhaust pipe and install turndown, raise boost to 12psi (243whp), corner balance the car, and see what i can really do out there.

Fun fun.

I wanted to have a seat and harness for this event, but looks like it'll be a little longer.

Default The Corvette was an easy kill

That guy in the Corvette was an easy kill for me on street tires. The tool would not point me by so after two laps I just honked twice and took him in turn 5. He was not even pulling away from me on the up hill run from 3 to 4.

The rain in the morning sucked! I got to wave to everyone as they passed when I spun off exiting 10 in the rain. Blue group had too many issues for a couple of clean laps.

So who is up for the next H2R event on 12.19.09?

Spooling2bars can you share your logs from Yesterday?

MM92 I am running in Yellow next time with Spooling2bars and Hustler if he can fix all the damage from Hallet

Harris Hill put on another awesome trackday.

It was good to meet spoolin again. You were kicking some major *** in the rain.

I'm glad my car was mainly understeering in the wet. It was generally very neutral. The Kumho XS's were fine in the rain. The surface on H2R dried out pretty quick and the water didn't pool THAT much.

I'm fine running in Blue for now, I think most of yellow was running R-comps.

Looking forward to the Dec HPDE.

Also, S2K is doing an entire weekend event in Nov (14-15) for $295 (non-members). I'm gonna try and get on that as well.

i might be going back to hhr on oct. 10th. the day after the tws open track day. it would be with coastal bend region pca. i think it's $155.00 and they do timing at the end of the day if you want. you get 1 warm up and three flying laps. these are results from an event in '08. only car i couldn't pass or atleast keep up with was good ol' bill woods and his badass blk. carrera race car. but you'll see why, so i don't feel bad about it. lol
i had a fun battle with the guy listed as "romans red '01 vette" (z06 on r6 hoosiers)took a few laps for it to sink in that i was faster, when he finally let me by, i put some distance on him within a lap. only bad part was the orange gt3 i really wanted to mess with got away during that time.

H2R results - Coastal Bend Region PCA

eraser-x - you talking about the red vette? was he running in blue at first? i've got some video, i'll post it soon.
