one might only hope

here's my list:
1. no rain
2. no low speed turnarounds (as in "i can't downshift to 1st gear" )
3. don't forget the water sprayer
4. Gary doesn't pull a fast one out of his arse again and i can finally claim to have beaten STX raw time

now the non-smartass answer:

Many people use a garden sprayer full of water to keep critical components cool between runs (tires, IC, IM, etc)

Its not super hard to downshift into 1st...just rev match with the heel-toe method and it should get right in there.

We'll see about that!
I'm hoping to continue the upward trend of my overall PAX results... seems like everyone else is getting faster too, we've got four STX cars in the Top 20 right now!!!

With the heavy hitters absent for national events it doesn't surprise me. Although by no means shall we (street tire crew) give up on the r-compound beatdown

Bart who wonders if he'll have a car to drive this weekend

I may be picking up a set of A3S04s this weekend. I was going to get some this weekend but I'm going to try and get as much out of the 03s as possible. I have about 40 runs on them right now but the wheelspin really takes its toll on them.

to be honest, i doubt the s04s will be any different... i don't think the tires are the issue there... GET A FRONT DIFF
