    The whole thing is semi-interesting... but start at 18:00... at 19:30 oli and I go 'wheels to wheels' and by 21:30 i give up because of the 3" of toe-in on the right rear.

    btw.. if you watch the whole thing we blow by miata 'racing' at about 17:20
    Did you have a bent tie rod or did something else give? When I went wheel to wheel with Chuck, my RF wheel went 1.5" toe out with no apparent damage to anything. I'm still not sure exactly what gave, but I suspect it was the steering rack. I just turned the tie rod to bring the toe back to normal and the car seems to run fine.

      Wow, you were like a couple car lengths from very nearly almost rubbing fenders with that car. Jeepers that was close. You're okay right?

      Are you T1 drivers always lifting that much around Buttonwillow? I'm flat out in my Miata. Because that's how I drive. Flat out.

        Yes, our cars produce 120 hp at idle.

          Big scary corvette machine is fast.

          Sometimes I dip my junk in my fuel. I don't think it makes me any faster, but the tingling sensation is nice on hot days.

              Try shaving your junk before dipping. The pain is exquisite.

                      the tire donuts and bent tie rods say otherwise... it just looks far away to you cause you guys are used to everything in miniature... plus in the time it takes you guys to cover 'a couple of car lengths'... we've traveled 200 ft.

                        I think perhaps there is a point of diminishing returns when searching for an "affordable" spec racing class.

                        As in, 'these mother ****ers treat the cars like they're disposable....because they are'.

                        Although I guess you really can't get hurt going that slow so what does it matter?
