Is anyone volunteering to help cook on Saturday? I want to pull my weight as a member but I don't want to miss my 1st place trophy.

Thinking about it. I would not mind cooking for a bit especially with a high quality beer in my hand. Though I also want to attend the TxMC trophy ceremony. I hear there will be podium girls and 15 liter bottles of champagne.

Good thing I installed the Accusump.
Increased tire wear at Daytona may be an issue for bikes but we've had no such issues with our Grand Am car there. Tire wear at Daytona was no different than other non-oval tracks.

My GF will be there to berate and humiliate you all. She's offering her golden nectar to all mustang drivers.

Interesting. That is good. I hope the same holds true for us if we use T3 T4.

Once again, thanks to Spoolin for organizing the TxMC and herding the cats.

List of things you missed by not attending TXMC R3:
"Saxaphone Man" impersonations
four LOKO crunkness
Duke's of Hazard dirt-donuts
Beer exchange that never happened, yet was exchanged
Lot's of **** talking (I someone managed to get ****-stomped by the Disgustang, yet continue talking ****)
The sad reality of 800miles, feather stock rubber, and dealer tags...lol
Someone won, I lost, my BAC saw a new peak
"I live in a metal building"

I whooped your *** Hustler. Post up the pics...

4 loco crunkness was had by all men of men, stock mustangs beat hustler hard, hustlers girlfriend is cooler than him, an evo mr can go around the track for 2 days at 35mph, brittany spears and 4 loco sucks, doing donuts in dirt will cause a yellow flag at the start of a spec 944 race if its windy

Saxophone win

I saw C-51's on your car while it was in grid. Did you run them during the challenge? What was the name of that beer again? What the **** was that squealing from your car when you came in after the 2nd or third session on Sunday? Brakes?

1:57:53. I hate you. Now I have to try and get faster (again).

i would have loved to have some damn clean track to drive on. A 1:57.xx lap would have been cake in jeff's 99. Trey said that there was lots of clean track today. Such a shame....

Wags, did you find that SD card? The Sax man looks like you, are you related?

Anyone have video of El Jefe?

yep, jeff found it in a box full of AST flyers where my laptop sat all night. i looked through it in the dark and didn't see it. Just glad it showed up. I'll be posting the video of my 360* spin off the track, hopefully, soon.

Saxman is hispanic. I'm Italian. still possible....

jeff's videos are on my laptop. We shared a gopro.

1:57:53. I hate you. Now I have to try and get faster (again).
My squealing brakes killed Bin Laden. Something with the rear brakes was causing very light pad dragging and they were squealing at paddock speeds. Not sure what it was yet but not a big deal. It sounded really bad though didn't it?

The beer we were drinking was Mothership Wit Hefeweisen from New Belgium. Good stuff.

Yep I had the C51s on the car all day today. I had the new NT01s on the spare wheels ready to go for the rain that never came. I was using the C51s yesterday afternoon in the last two sessions. I think I could have broken into a low 1:57 or a high 56 since that fast lap was on my second timed lap. Hell the 1st full lap was a 1:59. But, stupid me, I did not top off the tank and was losing power in laps 3 and 4 in the corners due to really low fuel. Lap 5 was survival mode. I barely made it back in and to the trailer. Coulda shoulda woulda. Best theoretical was in the low 1:56 range.

For reference the lead cars in the afternoon Spec Miata race were running in the 2:04 range.

It was seriously windy today with a strong headwind on the front straight. Traffic was much, much lighter this afternoon in TT, plenty of space. Dan I was looking for you this afternoon but did not see you anywhere.

Trey you left your Averies in the ice chest. Want me to hang on to them and bring them to H2R? Did you take some Terrible? Thanks again for the pads that was truly awesome.

I wish I had more time to hang with everyone this weekend but between instructing, the TT, and the brake pad swap Saturday night it was a hectic freaking day. I was beat Saturday night and had to get my tired old *** to bed.

Jake you are now friended.

Osama is DEAD! A great ending to a great weekend. God Bless America.

Now that we are friends I hooked up the facebook tagging...lol Here is that light you used, bar none the best headlamp I've used. Its light, cheap, and runs on 1 aa. Works great for night bike riding too.
