Default Chris is going to Dixie!

I am going down to the SCCA Dixie National tour and driving a TURBO charged miata.

Can you guys give me any pointers on how to get around the turbo lag?


All kidding aside, I am lucky enough to get to drive the GRM project SSM car. Should be a hoot. Anyone else going?

Any way you or Tom can update us all as to the specs of the car? Last time I looked on GRM's web site it was up in the air as to whether the car would have an FCM setup. Also, is it still on NT-01s, like IIRC it was in Lincoln last year?

I think you'll learn to love the lag/spool, especially if it still has the 2560R. It will come on just slow enough for it to soften the power delivery to get a good bite off the corners. You'll be begging me to help you get a setup just like I'm building, just you watch.

Surely some of the guys on here will be going. You guys can't let Chris and Tom be all alone as cannon fodder for the FDs (although so far they are alone in SSM)! March 13th and 14th, btw, South Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel, GA. There is an Evo School on Friday the 12th, they are usually very low priced and a good value to get a lot of the Phase One stuff in on Tour weekend.

275 35 15 A6's the last I knew. And I think it has the FCM shocks but don't hold me to that.

Dan and I will be there in his RX7, we just have not registered yet. We are turbo as well, so you cannot use that excuse.

Good luck, and make sure you bring both shorts and a coat, as the weather can vary. Oh yeah, an umbrella or poncho too, it rained last time in addition to the temp swings.

Won a regional event there once in A-Mod driving an F-Mod F500. I loved that ride. First time I had ever driven it. Helped that my only competition was an SAE car.
