thinks are good here. some crazy weather ....and crazy scenery

weather should be good tomorrow but maybe a bit sketchy Sunday

site seems a bit small honestly, concrete is not as grippy as I'd anticipated and the altitude is noticeable... I'm driving a friends 2.0 turbo evo and it's spooling like a drunk trying to run on a frozen lake...

Im running in DS. The car on the concrete has a big problem with the power steering cutting out, and it pushes like a.... well like a WRX with no shocks.

I'll play with tire pressures tomorrow since my times are really bad (nothing to loose)... but the car on concrete NEEDS shocks something fierce. If I cannot fix the roll rates, and SEVERE understeer, and loss of power steering.. I'll have to give up on 2009 WRX for DS.

sick course today. I wish I had more competition in ESP, but I'll take the tires (as well as my co-drivers) =). I would like to see the indexed results. Hopefully rick will get them up soon.


Won a free entry to a 2010 event in the raffle to top it off. Then went fishing a caught quite a few.

It was a good day.


I'll try to upload vids here soon.

not to be a buzz kill, but you might want to double check this.

You need 3 unique cars to earn tires, the results only show 2 in ESP.

I added 15 lbs to the rear of my DS car for Sunday, it was a big improvement.. actually very big. But the car still needs some work, shocks will be critical.

ugh... might only have only won 2 tires... waiting for response.

But damn! I wish I could apply those 10,000 points to my regional points!

McCabe would have had pax if he'd run BSP (the car was not changed to run FP vs BSP)

There are 18x10" wheels and 285s on Chris' E36 M3. He's still getting used to the new found grip.

It's not pretty with wheel and tire hanging out everywhere, sorry Chris Lets just say fenders will be peeling off the car with any kind of bump. I'm sure some pictures will surface soon enough.

Nice shots Rup!

wish you'd gotten there earlier for heat 1 =) oh well

Here's the vids from my runs.

looks like I was timid on day one. I'd turn in, change my mind, then turn some more...

Day 2 consisted of a lot of Oh ***** moments.

Sorry man! Waved to you but you might not have recognized my new "look"

Miss read the start time and forgot how much further out the airport was from Vail so missed heat 1.

Congrats on a great weekend!
