OK Adam, how does the car feel? Anyone there that can take some pics of your car running today?

Nevermind. Preston couldn't resist the STX WRX. So he'll be co-driving with Steve Garnjobst.

Yes they are going down the middle and each course is going out left and right respectively. Very good setup. Very big and fast out there. Should be fun tomorrow.

It feels good, I took around 10 runs on the practice course and basically didn't need to change a thing. The car feels well balanced and is able to rotate nicely on this concrete. All I need to do is drop front psi more. 38-39 was too much and the inside of the front tires were actually getting significantly hotter than the middle and outside. Gonna drop to 35 psi tomorrow and I think that will help and make the car even better.

Unfortunately no pics today, I'll try to video at least one set of runs tomorrow

Sheesh. Guess I've gotta try lower this weekend. If you can do it, *I* can do it! Just can't figure out why mine (first set of Rivals) wore out evenly at 44#

Out comes the laser temp gun.


Tell Joe A. that Scott from Arizona says "hi".

Then, beat him like a drum.

Well bringing home the gold will be a tall order. The Chhit bros will be tough plus Andres and some other good drivers..... Salenius....ect. A top 3 trophy spot would make me very happy especially at this early stage in the game. This is my first event of the year so probably going to be a little rusty. This course is going to be quite fast and the header/cat/tune not yet installed would be nice to have for the extra power and raised rev limit. Oh well, do the best with what we got

Try it and let me know how it turns out for you! I think you'll find some more speed there.

Yup, already ran into Joe. I'll tell'em howdy for you tomorrow. Also shot the shit with Andres for awhile and was good to see him. Saw Chhits from afar, but haven't talked to them yet. I'm sure I'll get to meet them tomorrow in grid.
