You guys missed a great event! Not the best weather, it was pretty chilly and took a while to get some heat in the tires.

I have to admit, the Dixie guys really do know how to put on a very laid back event. We even ran the formula jr kart (he was like 7, maybe younger) with only 3 course workers

8 runs, 30min lunch break, done by 4pm. Can't ask for much more with starting at 10:30-ish...

Cool trophies too!

Personal best from today:

There were at least 10-15 people there today using this as a warm-up event for the tour. Local Dixie folks get double points for attending the tour.

Pretty nice run Phil! I am surprised you squeezed by that last cone. Are you getting used to the tires? How did your times compared to other classes? I hope you run at Whitehouse next weekend.

I'll have to wait for results, but my times were not as fast as they should have been. BS was something like a 54.xxx and CS was a 53.xxx.

yeah, it seemed like I hit that last cone before the finish (it's actually 2) but it was scored clean...

I'm getting more and more used to the tires but I'm still not at 100% yet.

Who are the top drivers in BS and CS that were there yesterday? If Disimo was in his CS miata or Ruggles was in his BS 350Z, then your 52.6 may not have been too shabby.

Dat Nguyen was in CS. Unsure who was even running in BS, wasn't paying attention to their times. All I know is that I was slow, very much so.

I ran a 53.7xx...some national level ST guys were 52/53 ish also..there were alot of tour guys there practicing....I would say at least 20 of the participants...are going to the tour next month...I will put my video up tonight...I had a PS issue on the wifes car and stayed up to fix it...(leaky low side hose)...I am sooo glad I have diffs done in my car....it made a huge difference on corner exit for me...I was able to stay in the gas as much as I dared.......
(Oh and Phil...3 secs at Axis and allies not 2 but cones were the issue.. )

I doubt that Ruggles was there, but who knows. If DiSimo was there, he would have been in an EP Civic, so not a good comparison. CS needed to run ~53.2 to PAX better than you Phil and BS would need around the same, but I am sure you have done the math. DAT is a competent driver in CS, and pretty capable of quick times. I would have expected David Marcus to be ahead of him, but maybe he wasn't there.

Definitely stayed on line Bill! Very uneventful, which is how I try to keep it. How did you feel it went? Did you notice a couple of spots where you left any time? Pretty nice and simple course too.

Well...I tried to get back to the gas quicker...but the car didn't want to take it..it wanted to push out...even as early as I was turning...it still wanted to go outside...the diffs made the difference on when I could get on the gas...I set it up to have a bit of push...I might adjust that out to step the rear out come tour time...

Don't be Sipe and tune your way out of a competitive car! The Tour may be too soon to make any significant changes to your diffs.

Was it a yellow S2000 with black fenders? If so, then that should be John Ward's car. He had a thread on sccaforums detailing his struggles leading up to Nats last year. Hope he does well at the Tour and gets some redemption.

That's him. I worked the corner with him and he told me all about that. Talk about a rough time! Sounds like he's got everything worked out now though. He started to get dialed in pretty good towards the end of our runs, as all of us did. Temperatures aided it as well.

^ Cool - looking forward to seeing John run at the Tour. I think he's on this site...he typically goes by the username ComposiMo. I wonder if he took any video of his runs Sunday?

Hey guys! Yea, i'm on the site here.. gotta keep up on what all of my NASIOC friends are up to.. haha! I actually signed up the username not too long ago to get rid of some ads and stuff... Long time lurker, first time posting


Chiketkd: Thanks! I'm hoping that the car does well out there as well... it seemed to perform just fine other than it being cooooold out. My tire temps going to the line for my first run were about 56 degrees... and thats on the tire that was getting sunlight.. lol!

Unfortunately i did not get any video... i sold my video camera a while back with the intention of getting another setup that had an external mic... and i just haven't done it yet

digitalseance: It was great working the corner with you! Time fly's when you're around good people You definitely had that car of yours HAULING! I really wish i could get my car to launch like that... haha! Yea, the car is finally seeming like it is going to play along... as of right now my only issues have been related to the throttle body... so far, the butterfly shaft has broken on it twice... i have a spare shaft, but still if it goes out while racing, it'll be a handful trying to get the shaft replaced in time for my next run.

I was progressively pushing the car harder and harder throughout the day since i was trying to feel out the suspension... and the cold temps didn't help pushing the car hard either... I'm really bummed about hitting a couple of cones though... My best run of the day got coned out, and whats worse, it was a cone that actually cost me time to go out of my way to hit.. ... i think that run was a 50.2 or something, which i think may have gotten me really close to overall PAX.. i forgot to go up and write down all of my times before they packed the trailer up, so i haven't been able to do the math yet... and then on the last run, the tires were giving up the ghost too much, and the car felt like sliding more than sticking... they were just too hot and too old... But it did make for an entertaining lap though.. and that happened to be my fastest clean time of the day iirc, at a 51.5 or so. At least now i know how my car will react on that track surface, and i was able to finally see first-hand how that access road bump will feel in my car... i think it was taking it really well.

I just wish they would go ahead and post the results already so that i can look at all the numbers...


If anyone cares to read about the 'struggle' that was this car leading up to the 2008 Nationals, go to http://www.johnwardracing.com/s2000/index.html

John, I'll have to come over and introduce myself at Dixie.

Ha ha. That access road bump is the best - saw a few cars/carts catch air going across it @ last year's NT.
