Temp: low 50's hitting mid 60's.
Best Lap Time: 1:46.20. Done with Long Acre Hot Lap timer
w/an in car display. (new toy!)
What you're about to see below is me
learning to drive my car again. The front has been replaced, the
chassis has been stiffened and a 5pt harness was added. The harness
was an immediate difference and I don't think I could recommend this
enough for the avid open tracker. No longer do I get out of the car
and grab my left knee in agony. My grip on the steering wheel
loosened up a lot as well. Both of these made for feeling the car
and attempting to be smooth, much more enjoyable.
As a result of me not being used to the
harness, I managed to miss shift into third many times. I don't
think I ended up converting any. I wanted to put together a nice
.mpg of them all but my editing software sucks on Win2k Advanced
Server. Anywho....the tranny took some serious abuse and I'm not
sure it's got much left in it. Look for it in Broken
Parts in the next month or two.
Rob and I are set to run Jan 13th @
LSIR again with TCC. I'm going to have some new Yok A032R's and I
think Rob's going to running his first event on R's. Hopefully!
Enjoy the footage!

Watch for the Z06 coming onto the track. Beautiful car.

a clean lap....which is sad.
