That might help on the ride TO the site. Hopefully they have it swept well, they're usually good about that out there, and rocks aren't much of an issue.

I've seen it done with blue painters masking tape. I might start to do this along the fenderwells for future events.

yeah, that's what I figured. Nothing major ever happened to my other GTI. So, I'm not to worried about it. I'll just have to stay back behind cars on the way there/back.

Yep! While fewer participants means more runs, I think we need a couple more Subarus.

Default Who are you ridestreet84?

Event Chairman for the Solo Weekend XVII here. Okay, ridestreet84, I see that you are choosing to come to the school, yet I want to make sure you are registered...so, if you have not registered, you MUST do so at the dlbracing site AND soon. I know most of the "handles" yet unsure if you are on the registered list.

Any other questions?

I'll try to meet you guy's at McDs. But, we'll see. I'm not a morning person. heh.

i don't think I'll be able to make the thing on Friday. I have a previous engagement, that I can't really get out of. but I'll try to stop by, even if for a few minutes.

OK, well, today, i am going to QUIT trying left foot braking and just stick with my right foot. that way, instead of me sorta putting on the brakes and leaving my foot on the gas, i HAVE TO TAKE MY FOOT OFF THE GAS AND MASH THE BRAKES! no more understeer today. every run, i'd tell myself, ok, let off the gas a little more and get hard on the brakes, but then my right foot would just take over and it would stay planted on the gas and my left foot would meagerly push on the brakes. so... in my complaints of why i couldn't seem to really get a handle on the brakes, Phil suggested (duh): don't left foot brake. use your right foot then you HAVE to take your foot off the gas and only on the brake. Sheesh! now there's a concept! so today I will be working hard on my braking and following my line. No more plowing through the corners or cones. at least I'm going to try! woot!
