And honestly, I'm tempted to. It would make it interesting at least.

yeah, i know what you mean. the first few runs i was like "what the hell happened to my car?!" took me awhile but i figured things out (with help).

i guess it's just as important to be smooth and consistant but, also to adapt!

Haha exactly. I exited the box pretty quick for the first run, turned the wheel and my car did not turn. From there on for that lap I was just like "Oh ****... whoaaaa...." I definatly had to adabt to the course surface. But the afternoon was better, the pavement was warmer, more rubber out there and most of the tar cleared up. You could see the little tar marbles on the outsides of every turn were they were thrown. Looked cool actually. I probably could have broke into 46 seconds had we gotten a couple more runs at the end. I was really feeling it in the end... damn cone on my final run. I watched the video and the cone appeared to stay upright but it must have been moved out of the box.
