Good luck! I'm pretty anxious to see how all 6 of those classes play out.

This.

E, especially. The Kohler/Kidd/Chen battles will be epic.

I'm also afraid of what will happen to Miata dyno reclasses for next season if 6 classes get swept with miatas... D and E could potentially be all miata podiums?

Schotz firebird is destroying me by about 2s. I'm racing for second boys.

If it makes you feel any better, Crusher is winning by a MILE in the looks division.

Too late to ballast and detune back to C or would that be seen as chicken ****? Maybe you can push him hard enough to run the tires off the fat pig?

Specifically mentioned in first drivers meeting, "no more class changes".
So yeah that's the strategy. Stay close enough to force his pace and get him to run his tires off. Problem is two cars in class, 2 and 3s slower get by me on the start, the Firebird gets a gap and that's the race.

I brought a knife to a gun fight. Next year!

Nemo had a bad cylinder head, valve issue.
Car idled on 2 cylinders.
Emilio and Andrew helped out on swapping out the head.

Andrew was very gentlemanly for helping out a competitor.
Although I am technically a teammate and also a Trackspeed customer.

Before the armchair racers chime in, I would encourage you to watch the few moments before contact, paying particular attention to steering inputs and where the drivers were looking.
