The turbo would fall off in the first lap and I'm not joking.

So a serious driver would do to vbands what we all do to bolted flanges? I didn't think Sav was THAT much slower than the "pros".

Damn, I am gonna hit a couple RLTA's next year, but looking @ the competition I think I will just say right now "it will just be for fun", LOL.

I might have to bring a few blow up dolls dressed in little Mazda skirts and tops and strap them to my EZ up.

Good luck out there Andrew - your car looks badass...

Is it just me or is Matt's car missing a canard on the drivers side? Anyways, what did he run? Were Matt and Andrew in the same class?

Just found this thread Andrew, read from beginning to end. GOOD WORK!

Is it still running my old diff? Holding up well?

Pretty awesome that, as a college student, you're out there competing against some very serious competition. Keep updating this so I can continue to live vicariously through you. Do you wear any neck brace? I remember after a few laps @ LS my neck was getting sore in your car, must be even "worse" now.

Thanks to all the sponsors and competitors for making another successful year of time attack with the Super Lap battle series. This year’s Finals saw plenty of excitement as well as numerous records being broken, including the 4 year old Unlimited FF record previously held by GM.

In the Limited AWD class Ryan Gates pulled out the narrow victory by a tenth of a second margin to Evasive Motorsports with his 1:49.805 time. In the Street Classes we saw the Evasive Motorsport Honda S2000 get the new Street FR record with a 1:56.762 while in Street FF WindSpeed Motorsports / Continental Tire Dodge SRT-4 set the record with 2:00.256.

As I said before, anything but last is respectable. Solid mid pack finish. Only 3 seconds behind the first place driver in his class. Not your first dance but certainly your first time out with that kind of competition and pressure. Welcome to the big show! Well done.

Mid-pack overall is damned good for a privateer!

Dropped by ACS for a little while today to visit Savington. Ended up helping with set up and tuning a bit. Handling is pretty balanced now I think. Looking fast, despite being down on boost. Some last minute dyno tuning at Kraftwerks and a new intake hose should bring "a bit" more speed tomorrow when it counts.

Go Sav.
