So with Sandy approaching they are talking about getting the ship out to sea to ride it out tomorrow. This would make me a mad person.

Looks like I won't be going for sure now. Have fun. They are getting as many of the ships out to sea as possible and mine happens to be one of them. That's 150$ down the drain.

Let them know that you can't make the event and they should be able to pay it back. We are stuck here at work trying to get ready for this hurrex det. We have a few det's going out on those boats as well.

Don't be surprised if they cancel the event. Looks like this **** is coming faster than everyone would like.

Yeah I saw sortie condition is Alpha. Sorry man, such is ship life.

I am hoping they don't have us come in Sunday night for work. They are saying it will be almost 7 inches of rain by 2300. It floods quite a bit on and near base.

I wouldn't mind if they rescheduled this event as well.

Well that was a fun day! Only rained during the last group of cars on there last 2 laps. Other then that the weather was awesome. Nice and cool And dry. I ended up with 3rd place overall. I was Beaten by the Mazda formula car and the Nissan Gt-R. (2010). He has done several track days,
nice guy. New coils felt pretty awesome. Still need some addition tuning on them for sure!
Wish you guys could have been there to share the top spots I'm sure you guys would have been up there.

Some pretty good pics. What happened on the second run on turn 7? It looked like there was a bump and it upset the car?

I kept egging you on in turn one to stay in fourth. Turn 13? looked like it was your most timid corner until your FTD. It looked like you could hold more speed and brake deeper like you did in the ftd run and all runs after that.

Sure wish I was able to make it, it looked like a lot more fun than the previous gripfest. How was it to run the track that way compared to previous?

The speed was much higher last time then this time because of being able to hold it wide open from the hair pin to turn five. I was only hitting about 100-105 this time. The challenge was higher this time due to the lines you had to run to keep speed. The slide was exactly how you put it. I hit a repaved section and the car unset then when it settled she just slide out. It was a slow slide that I corrected for but she still stepped out. Would more damper in the rear help that you think? Car felt awesome still... I did like having the run down the hill compared to up... It felt faster then last year. And overall the lap times were faster then last year.
Going into turn one and two I had to keep shifting to 3rd because the car felt underpowered in forth up that hill. I left it in forth a few runs. Rpms were around 4 going up hill so....

More damper in the rear will actually exacerbate the rear coming out. It will take a bit to figure out the settings you like the best, and each venue we race at may have a different setting.

Hard to tell from the videos but it seemed like it was pulling ok through fourth in the first turn. I'm sure being in the car would feel different.

After watching your videos and remembering the other STI video I saw it seemed like the lines are much different through the back half of the course. I think it was corner 12 maybe 11, it was a quick left, that one is hard to tell from the video on the proper line. It almost seemed like you could cut it tight and then hold it out bit for a few mph faster.

All speculation of course.

How did you arch enemy do?

Awesome pics. I will have to watch the video once I get back from underway. Not enough bandwidth to watch out to sea. Looks like a lot of fun. They got back to me in email and said no refunds, not a happy person, but oh well. They are working on having MWR give me half of what I paid since a lot of people lost money for the last minute changes for the weekend.

That would be good if MWR did that for you. It does suck that the ships went out and everyone had to go and drop everything.

We were bout to go to sea yesterday and i guess we were pulling out to late so were still here and im stuck on the ship right now. Wind on the pier isnt bad but i tried to make it to mcds and i had to walk backwards to my truck and once inside the truck was leaning to one side, i couldnt even opening the door without using both arms and a foot to start lol needless to stay its pretty windy but i think thatll be the most of it. Weather channel predicts 3 foot 3 inchs for high tide tomorrow around 745Am so i hope i can get off and they dont close the brow
