    Best to get all that stupid stuff out of the way before you get to the track. Tomorrow will go smooth now for you.

    Usually takes me 20 min. Tonight got home at 4:30, worked solid until 8pm.

    Not sure why, the actual loading wasn't long, just small annoying things. Tried to get spare tires to correct pressures for example, had to unmount them from rack and remove valve stems as they are were at 40psi ffs.

    Good racing tonight. I qualified 7th and then pushed hard at the start of the race and got to 5th, but was stuck behind for awhile and lost touch with the leaders as a result. I had then a 10 second gap ahead and behind. Drove consistent and finished the race. Track seemed really slow today, 2 seconds slower than last race, all I could do to keep the damn thing on the track was sliding everywhere.

    Was excited to get the video of the start was so awesome.

    GoPro failed.

    AIM Solo failed.

    Yeah awesome race. I ran a personal best of 2:14.5. Considering everyone seemed a couple seconds off, I think there’s a good bit more there. I was also being held up the entire race. I literally had someone holding me up the entire race. But it was a couple different cars, and it was anything but boring. I actually ran my fastest lap on the last lap.

    Oh and I won my class, and only finished 7 seconds behind wing. There were 5 or 6 cars that had best laps within a second of each other. Such fun racing with other cars.

    My last lap was like a 2:20 lol. Just cruised home. Good job on the 2:14 tonight.

    I was looking at the points I have to worry about Bill now he's only 1 point behind me.

    Our classing really makes no sense though.

    So was looking at my data. Didn't work during the race but got 1 quali lap of data.

    On average I'm pulling about 1.6gs in most corners.

    Corner 6 was 1.9gs and same for corner 8. So that tells me there is more cornering potential for sure. The faster corners of course are the ones with slightly less.


    Corner 16 I lift before turn in then back on throttle, pulling 1.2gs so probably no lifting needed. Same at 1.

    What kills me though is I'm only pulling 1g in braking. Hardest braking into quarry is just barely a g. Everywhere else I'm around 0.8gs in braking.

    So as I suspected I'm losing a lot of time in the brake zones. Braking too early not hard enough. I'm always afraid I'm going to lock.

    Going wide open throttle down rocky road past the 2 marker is still a little disconcerting when I clearly could brake even later.

    Every lap I come in think wholly crap, get on brakes and then drive miss daisy down the hill to 6. Still pulling 1.4gs in 5, but still.

    My whole night was about practising the 2-3 or 3-2 shift.
    Seems dumb...but the Vee was all about 3-4 or 4-3.
    Of course...I was doing great all night...until I didn't.
    I spent the race playing lead/follow with Charlotte in the twin car to mine. She's still a bit slower (not for long), but its fun to draft and dice with a fellow mechanical grip car.
    I was leading out of rocky road...doing the 2-3 shift...but got 1 instead. Fuck me...what a shit storm...Spun wildly.
    Ended up pointing in the right direction...but the oil pressure gauge was borked. The AIM dash wasn't showing any alarms and my BFRL wasn't on.
    I coasted into Temptation and turned off the escape road and shut it down.
    I sat in the car and collected my thoughts. 4 laps to go...do I stay there? I restarted the car to see what the dash would display. All good...except the external oil pressure gauge.
    Babied the car back to the pits.
    Seems to run ok...but I'm not taking any chances without knowing the oil pressure.
    The gauge is borked...and it ran fine this morning...so, I'll MANL a new gauge and see whats what.

    (BFRL= Big fucking red light)

    My other car is 10 motorcycles that don't start

    I also have no oil pressure gauge I should check that, should be on dash.

    The BFRL is the only oil pressure indicator that I have.

    I have pressure and temp for oil.. mostly keep an eye on pressure. Big red light is setup for high water temps, oil pressure, over revs, seat ejection..
