Looks like its going to be about 90 degrees and a bit humid. Until about 12-1:00 it should be pretty nice.

I picked up a new helmet this weekend so I can do some ridealongs!

Just got back. Same ol' stufff. Fun times at Hallett. Took my back-up car (hereby named "Plan B") and peddled it as fast as I could and managed a 1:38xxx.

I'll let the other chime in with their fun/times/bs. After I decompress, I'll try and get up a vid of my off in turn 1, but I fear that Plan B's camera mount might have been too shakey. We'll see.

My arm hurts from giving point by's for two days

I can neither confirm nor deny said rumors because I do not associcate with those sausage jockeys unless have to (like when I need them to work on my car for me..).

while leaving the hotel i stopped to reset my suspension to street only to find i was running 14 in the rear and should have been at 7. got to love being so tired you forget impotent things....

my 1.30.9 would have been a lot lower and i think john would have ran close to the ftd in my car.

wtf? I fail to understand how you guys can't feel that your shock settings are off. it's like saying "I burnt my hand because I forgot to remove it from the hot stove!
did the car not feel like ****? maybe you couldn't tell because it was a better setting anyway, and that was the fastest you could have ran.
not trying to bust your *****, I'm glad your back out on the track, but I gotta call myth busters on that ridiculous claim.

no i was so tired i was zombie racing. it was the first time that car as ever been on a track so every thing felt new. the fact that the car was maxing out and hitting the bump stops will never make you run faster. max soft at the track is about the same as stock suspension if you could lower your car with them.

So tired you even forgot your pedobear stickers!

That car looked ridiculously fast out there... until Wags spun you down in turn 2.

Near as I can tell, I was out there holding up traffic running 1:45-ish... maybe I'll get off my *** and get a transponder next year. But goddammit that was a fun weekend, as usual...

Here's my "epic" vid (ala 0086). Couple of us DFW guys decided on a game of cat and mouse during the OTD on Friday. It was all fun until some teabagger in a pos green ftd car showed up.

Full screen and loud please (couple of NSFW choice words so you have been warned).

The little 1.6 backup car gave it all she had, but after losing a motor last month, I was trying to be nice (mechanical empathy, mechanical empathy...)

Enjoy: http://vimeo.com/15117273
