Question

Wonder if we can get some details from them about car setup, tires, etc. Obviously a lot of the result was because of the drivers but I'm still curious.

I've spoken with Richard a few times. He is on LEDA/MXX3.

Eric is using the Tein and the new Kumho tire I think.

Having competed with Eric in the past I can say without reservation that he is an excellent driver.

Thanks Kelly.

The event was incredible. The surface was the best Ive ever driven on, lots of grip. The courses were fast, but slightly more open on the left. I have GEEZ! maps of almost all of my runs, but several didnt record (?) for some reason. Eventually Ill be posting them somewhere.

Now on to the nitty gritty. After round 1, I was solidly in 5th place. And believe it or not Richard was dead last. Horrible cone trouble (like 8 on one run) prevented him from posting any good runs. That changed quickly. After round two, I moved into 3rd and Richard moved up also. I had posted the classes fast time on the left in the 2nd round, but really needed to pick up the pace on the right. I didnt get it done. It was there for me to take but I coned each of my last two right side runs and ended up being .085 out of first. Richard moved all the way to fourth in the class. The top 4 STS cars moved on to the challenge rounds. Richard got somewhat lucky with his first opponent, a CSP car. Lucky you say, well it had been hours since the car had run, the hoosiers were cold. I however drew the 3rd place STS car, a Neon that set the right side fast time. I lost in the first round, another cone on the right. Richard spanked everyone he went up against, but didnt make it to the final, he ended up ranked third eliminator. After being last with more cones than he has hit in the past 10 years, good job Richard, you rocked.

Now as for setup. I had my car set fairly soft up front and full stiff rear. About -2.5 camber front, 1/8 toe out, rear is in need of more neg camber and was set at -.7, and 1/16 toe out, 20mm bar. Richard had a much more neutral setup at first, but after round 1 he followed some of my suggestions and softend the front and stiffend up the rear, and tightend up his driving. It paid off tremendously. The cool part about it is the launch. You can tell when the lights are about to go, so there is the revving match, then the 5K launch where I immediately put space between me and the Honda I raced first. The Neon I was paired against for the rest of the event was much closer, and only got me on RT once, and it was only about a 1/4 car length. In the Challenge, Richard absolutely crushed the CSP car off the line. The start is handicapped by class dial-in, so Richard gets a couple second head start and beats the car in the drag race. It was awesome.

This weekend its a Prosolo in Petersburg VA. Come and watch, it should be very close again! Kelly, are you running at Petersburg, Richard said you might.

Have a Nice Day?

I forgot to mention this part.

The course was actually dangerous. There were several close calls with side by side high speed chicago boxes. One car would spin and end up IN the other cars lane and line. And, for the first time anyone could remember, there was contact. A DS neon lost it and crossed over and T-boned another DS neon. It was very unfortuneate. And a WS6 lost brakes and went farming, with a rather rough re-entry to the concrete.

Wintrode,
the way Prosolo is scored is based on your best run from each side. You get six runs on each side, 2 in each of three heats for a total of 12 competition runs. I set the fastest time for the left side course (the top row of times on the results page) but the guy who beat me had a better combined time from both courses. Its a shame I couldnt get it together for the last heat on the right, I could have won the class with only a .09 sec improvement there. RL means a redlight at the start, thus no time is recorded.

Was weather a factor during the STS runs? I think I read somewhere that it rained a bit during the event.

I did read about the safety concerns, scary.

Kelley, It was a little; cold, windy and wet before we started running but I don't think anyone ran on a wet course. We were in the first run group and were either the 2nd or third class in in the group and it was dry.

As Eric mentioned, it was cone city for me. I only got 1 clean left side run and that wasn't until Sunday AM. Even so at the end of Saturdays runs I was ahead of Vince Bly (with no cones) who won the class there last year in his Prelude.

As a side note on the practice starts on friday, when it was wet, they said at one point that I had the fastest 30' at 2.1?? seconds. I don't know if that held up and there was at least one MR-2 running 2.3's

5 of the 6 STS top finishers from Peru will be at the Petersburg Pro this weekend + Grady Woods who won STS twice and STR once this year (we crushed him in Peru) and Vince Bly who won twice last year.
