Does anyone notice that my wheels are symetrical ? You cannot see it on the picture but the centre caps are in alignment also. Just pointing out the attention to detail. It's the little things that count.

Apart from the Phantom that was FTD

That's after just 4 minutes seat time. I did 2 of the runs in the 61 secs but each time left loads of time on the course. I was too slow through the corners at the end and the last chicane. I was too wide and late through the slalom. My braking point was was wrong for the 1st cross over.

After the 4pots go on I will be able to steal a load more time under braking. The tires were nowhere near their limit under braking.

When I get used to the tires and change the rear camber back to the optimum, the car will fly man. It would be good enough to break 60 secs on that course.

And that, friends, is the difference between a 2800lb car and a 3100lb car. My tires -- all four of them -- were totally lighting up under braking! It doesn't help that the WRX has more brake boost than a flatbed with drum brakes at each corner either.

Anybody want a stronger brake booster? I'll trade ya.

he did, and that's when he started getting better times.

when i had the back to back runs, my tires just won't grip at all. starting to wonder if i'm not braking hard enough since i'm nowhere near locking up?

Hey that's Jamie getting in, or out. Lookin' a bit shaken.

OMG: My wheels aren't straight. How did that happen?

Avenger... you better look after that wing. My daughter has not forgiven me yet for selling that wing.
