Big thanks, all (shoutout to Adam & PZ for the PMs).

Been running around getting things sorted. Assuming these conflicting Tirerack emails are at least sort of correct, I have some Rivals coming in to spare the Ecstas another shredding. Saturday I'm going to give a go at reinstalling my Racing Beat rear sway as my one bar. Those nuts are looking mighty rusty though...

Can't wait for Sunday!

I was going to leave novice for this event, but looking at the entry list, it's still all the familiar names. Plus, I want to see how I do in Pax with these tires.

Ran in (N)HS today. Had a blast. OEM bar front and rear. Didn't have enough time on Sat to get the other on, and one variable at at time is probably better.

Ran 40psi up front and still rolled way over... 38 in the rear and it was exactly to the triangles. I'll rotate them for next time and try 41 in the front.

I was trying desperately to break the 60 second mark. The 69.76 felt like my fastest and smoothest run of the day until I got into a death wobble and spun near the last element. Had to pull a big, slow U-ie to not take a DNF (and I was trying to avoid running over the timing light)... c'est la vie. Had nerves after that, but still eked out my best run of the day.

62.203 61.544 60.432 69.769 60.318 60.905

The new tires == stupid grip absolutely love it...was on the limiter a lot too, which was a first.

4/32 in Novice. The real H-Street people were in the 57ish area and STF (all mazda2s) was 58sih.
