Hmm.. I'll mention that to her. Honestly, She would probably rather be there on track. Shes the type to get her hands dirty rather than shop around at a mall. Shes going to be a fantastic first wife.

Sixshooter, sixshooter's guest, Joker, and myself are in the first four garages by the grid entrance. If anyone is here feel free to drop by.

So Ryan blew up the supercharger in his Lotus. It's ok though, it fixed itself.

I'm curious if anyone else wants to go to Homestead Miami Speedway on Jan 20th with Performance Driving Group?

I'm second-guessing it. Looks like I've got some other plans developing.

Trying to figure out my 2019 schedule.

NASA is running less days at Sebring, and some weekends are Friday-Saturday?????

The flames from the tailpipe are a nice touch.

I'm driving both days this weekend with Chin Motorsports at Road Atlanta. Hope the weather improves.

Look good in a photo but show 3 mistakes. Rich, burning oil and exhaust leak. 2 of 3 fixed now.

It's sucked watching RaceHero and being on the sidelines for 2018.

I wrecked last April in 17B which wiped out the right side of the car, the diff, subframe, right control arms, plus a couple other misc. things.

We decided instead of running the rest of the year to build the car to ST5 rules for this year.

I was planning to be at HMS but I didn't want to take a car 90% done 8 hours away.

17B? People are subdividing that corner now?

Is 17A anything between the two braking zones or anything before the bridge?

And how did you wipe out the right side on the second part of 17? I always envisioned going wide into the rubber belting and tires before the gantry with the left side.

A is before the bridge and B is anything after usually. But it's all 17: bumpy the if I don't adjust ride high the location I bottom out on.

I was attempting to gain a higher exit speed to the front straight so I ran a wider line then usual. That put me in the marbles and the rear started sliding out.

I tried correcting (over correcting looking back) and stabbing the throttle but the car hooked and threw me right into the tire wall. (I'll try to find the video)

This was all in an attempt to catch the FRS we found out was illegal.
